Payment before Shipping details

Hi. I'm wondering if I can make my store checkout with payment first instead of shipping information? I saw a lot of visitor reach checkout and they left from that point. I bet many of them get lazy with the shipping information fill up part.

Hey there, @Miniel 


Bo here from Shopify Support! 


That is a really great question. This is not something that can be done. The checkout is designed in this way as most stores would be charging for shipping and so, this needs to be calculated before payment is made. Additionally, as you have said, people can be lazy. If they pay upfront before filling shipping information they may forget to add the shipping information. Furthermore, the billing and shipping address is used in our fraud detector to help prevent fraudulent orders. Customers will enter in their address and that is used as a check against their card's registered address before charging the card to help reduce the risk of fraud. 


I hope this makes sense! 


All the Best,
