I wanted to add an additional field or remove the "Fax" field in Magento Onepage checkout.

Has anyone had to do something similar?

If anyone could share with me how I can change or add these fields so they they appear in Customer account page, Sales_Order/View page and invoices etc I would be very thankful.


The easiest way is definitely renaming Fax field into Mobile. To do so create (or edit if exists) locale/en_US/translate.csv file of your theme and add the following line:


If you have different locale then English you have to create a directory with your locale code instead of en_US.

There are the basic step to remove the unnecessary fields from the one page checkout. Just delete the following template file.



But, it would be better to setting up & editing a new templates via layout XML rather than to changes on the core template.

Check this for a help:

  <?xml version="1.0"?>
  <layout version="0.1.0">
        <reference name="checkout.onepage.billing">
           <action method="set Template"><template>new/checkout/onepage/billing.phtml</template></action>
        <reference name="checkout.onepage.shipping">
           <action method="setTemplate"><template>new/checkout/onepage/shipping.phtml</template></action>
