But then you see something that sets you off and you abandon the checkout. Why? You were asked for the shipping address. Why do the sellers need such details for a download?

Now imagine what if your customer is in the same place as you! Won’t he/she get frustrated and abandon checkout?

Look, for physical products, you can’t avoid shipping details but can reduce the checkout steps. However, for WooCommerce virtual and downloadable products, there is no need to get the shipping / billing address of customers as the products are instantly available after checkout.

WooCommerce disable billing details for free virtual products

For example – If you are just allowing users to download your virtual product for free, then billing details like billing address, billing state, billing phone number, etc. are not required. All could be excluded in this case.

Enable billing details for paid virtual products like subscriptions, games, etc.

On the other hand, you may need billing details if the user purchases a paid product. This is a great example of subscription downloads. First, you offer a free trial and collect payment details and after the trial, the subscription starts automatically so the customer need not enter the details again.

By default, all marked fields are removed from the checkout page. Uncheck the fields you want to show on the checkout page and click on Save changes.
