Seeing and even having to bother about "BILLING ADDRESS" section at checkout page simply creates an extra unwanted effort for Indian customers.
We at India do not need such option. I am looking for a option to remove "BILLING ADDRESS" from checkout page completely.
I have seen many query thread with no solution, I am hoping by now Shopify India has something for us now in 2020
Note: I have seen someone else's response which was similar to my above query, i.e. to upgrade shopify plan to remove the "billing address" section. But I think it is totally not fair to pay another 29$ monthly just to comment (ctrl /) some code. Please do not take my words harshly, I am simply trying my best to reason with the deal and it is not fair.
Solved! Go to the solution
As far as I'm aware it is very limited on what you can checkout. Even then you would need Shopify plus to make certain changes which they allow. Unfortunately fair or not these are Shopify rules. I've attached a manual to read more about the checkout and what can be changed
Well Shopify is doing business in India.
What was the use of such extras? When everyone knows such information are not required here.
Maybe there is more to its compliances I do not know for other countries, but I can tell it is simply not required in India. No other company has it, even Amazon removed it years and years ago.
Its super annoying.
This is an accepted solution.
Well I worked my way around it myself.
So this is for Indian customers who is frustrated like me and unable to remove billing address?
DO A LANGUAGE CHANGE > Change it in such a way, that the billing address seems like we are giving customers option to SELECT Alternate delivery address.
Hope it helps
Message for shopify : Common I know you guys can gives us that option in the form of simple UI like many other amazing option to customize you give us.
I am having the same issue here in the Philippines. Most of our customers select to Pick Up from store and prefer to pay Cash, so I have setup Cash (pay in store) as a manual payment method. I even removed PayPal and Credit Card options in the hope that Shopify would therefore not require a billing address, but still the customer is required to enter a billing address. This is ridiculous: paying in cash, collecting from store but being forced to enter a billing address!
Meatmo, not sure what you mean by "DO A LANGUAGE CHANGE > Change it in such a way, that the billing address seems like we are giving customers option to SELECT Alternate delivery address."?
