When using standard checkout in magento 2, I want to place checkbox with address above my payment methods: enter image description here

I think I have to meddle with knockout JS which I have no experience in. Anyone knows where to start?


Starting from Magento 2.1.4 release, the checkout configuration has additional Display Billing Address On option (Stores -> Configuration -> Checkout -> Checkout Options). It has two possible values:

  • Payment Method - billing address is displayed per payment method

  • Payment Page - billing address is displayed above payment methods

The second option should solve your problem without any changes in the code base. Also, it might be useful for some methods like PayPal Express Checkout and allows to set billing address different to shipping.


I found it myself. Here is the solution

We have to override the payment.html in the checkout module. Copy this file;


and place it in your custom theme (we have to create a custom theme for this) with the following structure;


In this file we place

  <!-- ko foreach: getRegion('afterMethods') -->
      <!-- ko template: getTemplate() --><!-- /ko -->
  <!-- /ko -->

just underneath the beforeMethods Like this:

 <!-- ko foreach: getRegion('beforeMethods') -->
    <!-- ko template: getTemplate() --><!-- /ko -->
 <!-- /ko -->
 <!-- ko foreach: getRegion('afterMethods') -->
    <!-- ko template: getTemplate() --><!-- /ko -->
 <!-- /ko -->

Delete your caches in var/view_processed/ and the contents inside pub/static/frontend/.

Do a php bin/magento setup:static-content:deploy in your root and after that a php bin/magento cache:flush

The checked answer might work but is not correct itself. You can't just move the place of the methods. Instead you must move the form itself to beforeMethods.

See https://magento.stackexchange.com/a/170732/42007 You need to create a plugin like in that answer but instead of moving the billing form to the shipping step you just need to move it from the afterMethods to beforeMethods of the billing-step. Something like this:

$jsLayout['components']['checkout']['children']['steps']['children']['billing-step']['children']['payment']['children']['beforeMethods']['children']['billing-address-form'] = $jsLayout['components']['checkout']['children']['steps']['children']['billing-step']['children']['payment']['children']['afterMethods']['children']['billing-address-form'];


return $jsLayout;

You can use flexbox css :

#co-payment-form .fieldset {
display: -webkit-flex;
-webkit-flex-direction: column;
display: flex;
flex-direction: column;

.checkout-billing-address {
 order: 1;

.opc-payment {
order: 2;

.opc-payment-additional {
order: 3;

Job done !! Must be adapted to your magento configuration and theme.


Display Billing Address On Payment Method + PayPal Method

If like me, you are required to set Display Billing Address On = Payment Method in

Admin > Stores > Configuration > Sales > Checkout > Checkout Options

But want to force display billing addresses for the PayPal payment method as well. Then you can do the following:

Overwrite: Magento_Paypal::payment/paypal-express.html within your theme:

    <div class="payment-method-content">
        <!-- ko foreach: getRegion('messages') -->
        <!-- ko template: getTemplate() --><!-- /ko -->
        <div class="payment-method-billing-address">
            <!-- ko foreach: $parent.getRegion(getBillingAddressFormName()) -->
            <!-- ko template: getTemplate() --><!-- /ko -->

Overwrite: Magento_Paypal::view/payment/method-renderer/paypal-express.js within your theme:

], function (Component) {
    'use strict';

    return Component.extend({
        defaults: {
            template: 'Magento_Paypal/payment/paypal-express'
         * @return {String}
        getBillingAddressFormName: function () {
            // Hijack the Money / Cheque order billing address functionality here.
            return 'billing-address-form-checkmo';

Next, we need to assign the quote address to the order - because this involves manipulating the order data before save, a "before" Plugin (Interceptor) will be appropriate here: In your custom module's di.xml:

<type name="Magento\Sales\Api\OrderRepositoryInterface">
        <plugin name="checkout_order_repository_plugin" type="MyVendor\MyModule\Plugin\Api\OrderRepositoryInterfacePlugin" sortOrder="10" />



namespace MyVendor\MyModule\Plugins\Api;

use Magento\Sales\Model\Order;
use Magento\Sales\Api\OrderRepositoryInterface;
use Magento\Quote\Api\CartRepositoryInterface;
use Magento\Quote\Model\Quote\Address\ToOrderAddress;
use Magento\Quote\Model\Quote\Address as QuoteAddress;

class OrderRepositoryInterfacePlugin
    /** @var CartRepositoryInterface */
    private $quoteRepository;

    /** @var ToOrderAddress */
    private $addressConverter;

    public function __construct(
        CartRepositoryInterface $quoteRepository,
        ToOrderAddress $addressConverter
    ) {
        $this->quoteRepository = $quoteRepository;
        $this->addressConverter = $addressConverter;

    public function beforeSave(OrderRepositoryInterface $subject, ...$args): array
        /** @var Order $order */
        $order = $args[0];
        if (!$order->getBillingAddress()) {
            if ($order->getShippingAddress()) {
            } else if ($order->getQuoteId()) {
                $quote = $this->quoteRepository->get($order->getQuoteId());
                if ($quote && $quote->getBillingAddress()) {
                    $address = ($quote->getBillingAddress() instanceof QuoteAddress) 
                        ? $this->addressConverter->convert($quote->getBillingAddress())
                        : $quote->getBillingAddress();

        return [$order];
