Hi, Finally I have my own API-Key, so then you may close this thread.

Thanks & rgds, Afif

Happy to hear you sorted it out.

Having the same issue when entering my UK address. Tried all combinations I can think of. None work.

Hi Jake,

We use Google Maps to validate the address so whatever you enter, just make sure Google thinks it's a valid address.

I know that's your stock answer Travis, but it doesn't really help. I entered what Google thinks my address is over and over. It's only after trying about a million different permutations that I tried entering "Carlton" as my city and it then worked. But Carlton isn't a city. Carlton is a district of the city of Nottingham. And I don't even live in Carlton. I live in a neighbouring district.

Point being, the validation you've chosen to use doesn't really work. Just saying.

Thanks for the note. I'll have to see why Google wasn't validating one but did the other. My memory of this (albeit this was > 2 years ago now) is that it's basically the same as mashing in the address to the Google Maps search bar and checking if there's a valid location there. That's all it does.

Can you update your API post with the correct details so that I can use them to see why it's not showing as having a valid location?


My address too is being read as invalid! Ive tried validation with dii combinations.. Still no luck :(

Hi @simakk Yes, clearly something had changed. I'm planning to look at this on Monday morning. I'll let you know when you can try again.

Validate error , I fill form ,,,

@sakuragi10 What's the error you're getting? We don't try and validate the actual address anymore.
