Be it a shipping address for an online order or a credit card billing address, address entry forms are ubiquitous online. Google Places Autocomplete is a feature of the Google Places API and the places library of the Google Maps API v3. It provides your applications with the type-ahead-search behavior of the Google Maps search field. You only have to start typing an address, and Autocomplete can fill in the rest.
Installing this does require you to be comfortable with ftp programs and changing a little code, so if this is outside of your comfort zone you'll want to have your developer make this update for you.
Your customer starts to type in their address and Google will automatically offer suggestions for the complete address. Once they see the correct address all they have to do is click on it and the form will automatically fill out the rest of the way.
