Magento is confusing. I want to modify how the address in the front end displays but I can't locate where it should be modified.

In the checkout page,the address fill out form shows in this order:

  • Street Address
  • Municipality
  • Prefecture
  • Zip Code
  • Country

But I want it in japan address format:

  • Country
  • Zip Code
  • Prefecture
  • Municipality
  • Street Address

enter image description here

Do you have any tips on how to find the page easily?

1 Answer 1


Generally the address formats are contained in app/code/core/Mage/Customer/config.xml look for some markup like this:

     <text><![CDATA[{{depend prefix}}{{var prefix}} {{/depend}}{{var firstname}} {{depend middlename}}{{var middlename}} {{/depend}}{{var lastname}}{{depend suffix}} {{var suffix}}{{/depend}}
{{depend company}}{{var company}}{{/depend}}
{{if street1}}{{var street1}}
{{depend street2}}{{var street2}}{{/depend}}
{{depend street3}}{{var street3}}{{/depend}}
{{depend street4}}{{var street4}}{{/depend}}
{{if city}}{{var city}},  {{/if}}{{if region}}{{var region}}, {{/if}}{{if postcode}}{{var postcode}}{{/if}}
{{var country}}
T: {{var telephone}}
{{depend fax}}F: {{var fax}}{{/depend}}}]]></text>

or you can try this one also -

Go to:

`STORES->Configuration->Customer->Customer Configuration -> Address Templates`.

There you find the same code as in the XML file.

  • I think this path app/code/core/Mage/Customer/config.xml is different in Magento 2.1.3
