The system does not check that the Postcode matches the first line of the address to avoid losted parcel caused by typos
Really important - now that our address file is being imported in there is no check to match postcodes and addresses match which is caused through typing errors - needs urgent attention
Thank you all for your suggestions. We recognise the importance of this, and we are planning to include it in a future release. Unfortunately, we are not yet able to offer a time for when this will be completed.

Yes, we've had to add autocapitalise into our own integration as well as making sure postal town is in correct field, and that postcodes entered with out a space, have one added, etc. I feel we're doing Royal mail's job here.

As a long term DMO ondemand user, these are all pretty important features to be included in click and drop.
Online customers are appalling when it comes to using all lower case. It makes the labels look unprofessional unless we spend time adding caps to their name and addresses. AUTOCAPITALISE as in DMO is the best solution.
If RM want the correct postal town and postcode in address labels, then overwriting with the correct post town and postcode checking are essential.
Agreed- The outgoing DMO system automatically resolved any address issues, including correcting postcodes to capitalization, plus there is a facility to use the postcode to Auto populate the delivery post town / city.
Its a real pain having to manually amend eBay addresses and we are now having to use the CSV import to correct some of these issues - Not ideal when your shipping 100's of parcels a week !!

This is the fourth post I have seen in the past 5 minutes.
URGENTLY NEEDS ADDRESSING!
Auto format Name & address and do a automatic postcode check
Should be a function to Auto Format ie. 'CAPITALIZE' full name and address as well as do an automatic (or on request) Post Town Check when orders are imported (manually or automatically).
When importing orders manually into the original version of RM DMO (not click and drop) it would automatically capitalize the full name l and address when generating the label making it much neater.
Also you enable RM DMO to auto check the postcode and overwrite the POST TOWN if needed. Can't see this functionality here in C&D so the result could be messy unformatted names (as most customers don't bother to capitalise first letters), addresses with potentially missing post towns and possibly completely incorrect post codes....
1) Add this option into Shipping rules (ie. Auto format address and auto check postcode)
2) Add a button to the existing useful Edit Address
(ie. Auto format address and auto check postcode) instead of having to type it in manually
3) option to enable Auto format address and auto check postcode whenever orders are imported from ebay or Amazon or manually etc.
4) Batch format and check all addresses on the orders page
5) Some or All of the above
