Add separate house number field in checkout
Every major platform offers a separate field to enter the house number in checkout, rather than entering this together with the street name in the "address 1" field.
There is a very good reason for this. It ensures that addresses are formatted correctly. It is very difficult for shipping label API's to correctly split house numbers from street names in all cases for all European addresses. Shipping labels without the correct house number information leads to delays, returns, unhappy customers and a lot of extra costs for the seller.
It is time WooCommerce joined the other professional platforms and provide this as core functionality (even if it is optional to avoid backwards compatabilty issues).
Thank you for taking this seriously. Many people are not happy with this but find work arounds. This might be the one point which converts someone who is on the fence deciding between Shopify and WooCommerce.
This is a must have in European countries. We work with API's that connect with fulfillment companies and shippers. For processing shipping labels a separate house number field is required.
In addition, we see customers forgetting to enter a house number in the street field and are not reminded by a form validation to enter a number.
For the time being we can use this fix proposed in this article:
When can we expect this feature in the forms? Otherwise who can refer to a plugin that solves this issue?
This would be great for so many European countries
This would be a really good advantage!

This would solve so many problems if there was a default setting for this.
