How to: Set Up the GetAddress.io UK Postcodes Extension

This extension makes it easy to enter addresses in the UK for entities like customers, contacts, employees, vendors, bank accounts, and so on.

The GetAddress.io UK Postcodes extension uses the getAddress API to find addresses in postcodes in the UK. To use the extension, you need to get a plan and an API Key for the getAddress API. That's easy, and we help you do that when you set up the GetAddress.io UK Postcodes extension. Plans are based on use, or what's sometimes referred to as calls. A call, in this case, is when Financials displays a list of addresses in a postcode. Depending on how often you add addresses, choose the plan that is best for you. If you just choose Get API Key in the page, you'll use the Free plan, which lets you add 20 addresses per day, and is valid for 30 days.
