What Does the 'Validate' Button Do?

The validate button will look at the address, city, state and zip/postal code you've entered and suggest addresses, select the correct address from suggested addresses and it will populate the fields for you. Leave either the city or the zip/postal code blank and 'Validate' will fill it in for you.

 

Best practice is to 'Validate' every recipient address entered to ensure it's valid and can be routed from the 'Deliveries' manager.

 

Zip/Postal Code Lookup Using Validate

Enter in all address fields and leave the zip/postal code field blank, then click 'Validate'

 

In the example below, the address entered is 1313 HARBOR, Anaheim, CA > click Validate >select correct address

The correct full address is added to order 1313 S Harbor Blvd, Anaheim, CA 92802

Note it found the directional 'South' part of address and also fixed the address to proper case!

Help! My address won't route - what do I do?

 If an address will not route in your delivery tab, it's likely that MapQuest cannot read the recipient's address as is.This normally happens if the 'Validate' button is not pushed on the Take Order screen.

 Validating an existing order is easy. Go to Orders tab and search for the order that is not routing.

 In the order detail page, scroll down to the recipient information. There will be a 'Validate' button underneath the address - click on this.

Clicking on 'Validate' will change the address in a way MapQuest can read and route. From here, you should have no issue routing your order!
