06002 – How to setup a Billing Block

The Billing Block allows you to add a billing section anywhere in your Order or Upsell pages. Below is an overview of the various Billing Block settings.

Details

Custom Field Options
    The following fields can be enabled or disabled for the Billing block:

    • Company
    • Company Id
    • Company Email
    • VAT Number
    • Tax ID
    • Phone
    • Address
    • Country
    • Shipping/Billing Options

These fields are enabled or disabled depending on the Order Page template you are using.
But if you manually add a billing block, by default only Phone, Address, Country, and Shipping/Billing Options will be automatically enabled.
To enable/disable any of them, simply click on the toggle button to switch it to ON or OFF on the left sidebar menu.

Required
Once a specific custom field has been enabled a checkbox will be available on the right side under the Required column.
If the corresponding checkbox is ticked, this means that the specific field needs to be filled on the order page before submitting the order.

If the required field is not completed on the order page, a message will appear that the field is missing (e.g. Country Missing)

Shipping/Billing Options
  • Once this option is enabled, Billing Address same as Shipping checkbox will be available at the bottom of the Billing block.
  • When this option is enabled, the system will capture the user’s billing address the same as the shipping address.
  • When this option is disabled, new billing address fields will appear below.
These pieces of information (billing and shipping details) will be captured and saved to your payment system (Stripe or PayPal) and to your Sales data for invoice use.

 

Personal or Company Block

You also have the feature of adding the Personal or Company block that will work together with the billing block.

When adding this block (which is unique per order page), 2 radio buttons will appear with default Individual being checked.

  • When Individual is selected then the following company fields will NOT be shown:
    + Company
    + Company ID
    + Company Email
    + VAT number
  • When the Company is selected, then ALL the above-mentioned fields can be shown.
    The information regarding Company details will be shown on the invoice as well.

Of course on both scenarios, if any option is disabled (toggle OFF) on the Billing block settings, then it will not be displayed.
