Step 3 - Ship To: Me

By default Step 3 on our Checkpage is "Use New Address", followed by the empty address box

How do we change this default to "Use Billing Address" (thereby showing no empty address box unless New Address is selected)

Thank you

    Hey Paul,

    There isn't a setting to change this in the administration, but something could be achieved using javascript. In essence, you'd look through all of the ship to headings, and if the text is equal to "Me" change the drop down related to that ship to address to the "Use billing address" option.

    How's your handle on javascript?

    Oh dear, I've no understanding of Javascript - can u help?

    Strange thing is, the cart at does what I want (above) straight out of the box

    Why is that?

    And why does the Foxy default show the long-winded version that the great majority of customers don't want to use? ie most customers ship to the billing address

    One of the USPs of Foxy is brevity/focus - surely you should at least offer this as a tick option in Admin?

    Can you whisper me a link to where you're seeing that, Paul? How your is set up is how it should be. If it's not it's likely either a javascript error or perhaps some javascript intentionally put there by somebody else or for another reason? It should _definitely_ default to not showing the extra fields for shipping address.
