In this Article

Say you run a subscription box WordPress website, where your customers receive a package delivered to their address every month. If a customer relocated to a new address, you’d definitely want to update their new address in your records, right?

Most customers, however, would be too busy with the relocation, that they would probably forget to update their new address on you website. And even if they did, how would you, the admin, learn about this change?

If you are like most ecommerce website owners, your deliveries are handled by a 3rd party company. So obviously, whenever a customer changes their address, you will want to share their new address with the delivery company to avoid wrong deliveries.

WooCommerce Address Change Notification Plugin

One of our web design clients was recently struggling with missed deliveries on her website due to customers changing their addresses. If you are here. you are probably facing the same problem.

Given that WooCommerce doesn’t offer an out-of-the-box solution for this problem, we wrote a simple WordPress plugin which sends out notifications to her whenever a customer changes their address. I wanted to share this plugin with the rest of the world as it’s simple yet quite handy.

The plugin is based on WooCommerce, sends out instant email notifications to WordPress admins with both the old and new customer address. This way, the admin knows which address to update and to what.

Benefits of WooCommerce Address Change Notification plugin

  1. Avoid Delivery Mishaps: Address changes happen frequently, and without proper notification, it’s easy for orders to be sent to outdated addresses. The plugin ensures that you’re always in the loop when such changes occur, helping you prevent delivery mishaps.
  2. Enhanced Customer Experience: Offering a seamless and efficient address change process shows your commitment to customer satisfaction. When customers know they can easily update their delivery information without hassle, they’re more likely to return to your store for future purchases.
  3. Minimize Support Requests: By automating address change notifications, you reduce the likelihood of customers reaching out to your support team to update their addresses manually. This frees up your resources for more critical tasks.
