So here's what I have tasked to me:
Customers can go through our store and add items to the cart. That all works famously.
Once they reach the Checkout page, my boss wants to give them the ability to enter their customer ID, at which point all of the customer info and credit card stuff on that page goes away: no need to enter name/address/city/etc. in any of the fields. Also, items in the cart won't show prices, tax, shipping, or totals of any kind on the checkout page, receipt, or emails. Since we retain our customers' payment info in-house, we'll figure all that out on our end.
If they don't enter a customer ID, the customer should have to enter their information and credit card as usual, the cart, receipt and email shows all prices, taxes and totals, etc.
I know I can turn on the Purchase Order option to bypass credit cards, but the form still returns an error if you try to submit it without customer info.
Is there an easy way to say "All clear, take it as is, don't validate anything" upon submission from the checkout page? Or do I have to populate the hidden fields with dummy data and explicitly hide everything that my boss doesn't want to show?
Our url is secure.fellers.com, though I'm only attempting these changes late at night when customers aren't around.
