How to Add Google Autocomplete to WooCommerce

If you run any web store where you plan to make deliveries, then adding the Google Address Autocomplete also sometimes called Google Address Autofill feature to your checkout page is a nice touch to help save your customers time while also ensuring you have an accurate delivery location for where the order should be delivered.

This feature is not only limited to stores that do delivery but can also be useful for websites that also offer pickup services as well; such as a moving business website that uses WooCommerce to sell their services.
