Hi,

As a seller I sometimes have trouble with deciphering some buyer adresses. Specifically
with international shipments to foreign countries I often need to contact the
buyer for what is what.
I was wondering if it would be possible if Bricklink could show something like
an adress template in the orders like mentioned below, so that it's clear
what is what instead it shows all the Adress info without clarification.


Jack Brick
Legolane 100b-2
12345 Legocity
Baseplateregion
Legoland



Name:Jack Brick
Street: Legolane
Housenumber: 100b
Appartment:
Floor: 2
Zipcode: 12345
City: Legocity
Region: Baseplateregion

Etc.....

With kind regards,
Chris

Very much support this!

I run into this quite often. Not only here, but also on the other site.

It should not at all be difficult to program since what's displayed on your
screen is the value of a database field connected to it. Just add the name of
the field (perhaps modified to make it more understandable) as a label.

Most international shipments are now done by preparing a label on the website
of your shipping agency and they require exact information for many fields, which
are different from country to country.

Also: make a telephone number mandatory for buyers: I need to enter a
telephone number for shipments outside of the EU. For Postnl I can also enter
an email address but this may be different in other countries.

The address should be normalized, as to the standards of the postal authority
that handles the destination country. Having said that, there are a small number
of physical addresses in the USA that do not receive direct mail delivery. They
are instead given a free PO Box, and have to collect their mail there.
