1 Answer 1


After looking at the tutorial my guess is that this attribute is set as required when creating the attribute in the setup script.

'is_required'       => 1,

In Magento an address is simply an address if it is a shipping or billing magento does not really care on the customer address level, so if this attribute is required you would need to add it to both the shipping and billing address forms.
