When is an address saved in the customer? I mean, is it in the checkout process when saveBilling is called? Or is in the conversion from quote to order when saveOrder is called?

In this question, save means the address can be reused by the customer in another purchase without having to type the address again.

  • I want to know where the address is being saved and related to a customer. – mbalparda Sep 19 '14 at 13:36
  • Take a look at submitOrder() in /app/code/core/Mage/Sales/Model/Service/Quote.php – Renon Stewart Sep 19 '14 at 13:44
  • Why do you think there is where the relation between customer and address is being made? – mbalparda Sep 19 '14 at 13:59

Magento create object of customer form address



on function _prepareNewCustomerQuote and _prepareCustomerQuote magento copy sales_quote_address fields object to customer address object using from field copy Mage::helper('core')->copyFieldset() function and Mage_Customer_Address function -addAddresswhich copy fields between customer_address and order quote object and here also set default shipping and billing address which default selecting on next time in checkout
