I wanna ask you something about a possible "feature" that I have no idea if is easy to implement or not. In checkout page for example, we can see the addresses selectbox and the default address selected is displayed as following:

4806 Rustic Barn Farms, Tompkins, California, 95454-3246, US, (530) 954-4054

That is the default view for the address on the selectboxes. Most ecommerces use a field to give a "label" for each address, like "Home", "Uncle's house", "Office" etc, and the label is associated to that address and used during checkout process.

Is there some "easy" way to make that feature works in Magento?

  1. Create a new address attribute label
  2. Ammend frontend as required so that customer can create/modify label
  3. Update System \ Configuration \ Admin \ Customers \ Customer Configuration \ Address Templates such that the address one-line template only displays the label attribute.

I believe that should work.

  • It should be a native feature from Magento, shouldn't it? – joaogdesigner Jan 2 '15 at 14:54
  • I'm not certain, google is your friend there. However my solution should still work. Are you confident enough in creating new address attributes etc? – Luke Rodgers Jan 2 '15 at 17:23
  • I've searched and found some tutorials, because it's something new for me, but I guess it's easy. Take a look here: excellencemagentoblog.com/blog/2011/11/29/… – joaogdesigner Jan 2 '15 at 17:37
  • Had a quick glance. That tutorial looks like it'll cover everything you need. Good luck! – Luke Rodgers Jan 2 '15 at 17:51
