    Canada & UK Address verification

    With authorize.net when there is a transaction involving a UK or CA customer where their bank DOES participate in AVS the zip code is always wrong.

    This thoroughly annoys my customers. I think it has to do with formats (6 characters, letters and number, space in the middle, instead of 5 numbers)

    I don't know about Canadian post codes but in the UK it can vary from 5 to 8 characters including the space. I've also had problems because of the post code town where my mail goes having an apostrophe in it.

    With a little code the script should be able to tell if the 'zip' is 5 number (or 5 + 4) or made with letter and numbers.

    That's put me off using them.

    Postcodes in UK can be as short as A1 2BN or as long as ZY99 8XW
