The Shipping Addresses section allows you to view and add additional shipping addresses for a contact. Any shipping addresses added by the customer online or by an admin user will be stored under this tab. These alternative addresses can be assigned to Club Memberships (usually, these addresses are used for Gift Memberships). Additional uses for these additional addresses may be used for admin panel, website, or POS orders.
To add a new address, click on the Add an Address button, or to edit an existing address, click on the Edit button. This will let you create or edit a shipping address.
1. Go to Contacts > select a specific contact and under Contact Properties select Manage Shipping Addresses.
2. Click Add An Address.
3. Fill out the address fields. To speed the form fill process click into the Address feild and as you begin to enter the address information into the field the platform will dynamically look for relevant matches to the address information that you are entering using Google's vast address database. Select the address that matches what you are entering and have the relevant form fields auto complete the address as much as possible.
If you do not wish to use the address suggestion, click anywhere onscreen other than the address suggestion dropdown.
4. Click Save.
