Missing Billing Information on Orders of 0$

Recommended Posts

Site URL: http://www.enjoysnacks

We have started using discount codes in our store for expos and promotional events. I have noticed that customer information (billing information) is missing for those orders whose order total is $0. Apparently, Squarespace thinks that shipping information and billing information is the same thing and that customer information for orders of $0 is not necessary.

From a marketing perspective, not collecting the information of people placing orders is questionable. Many of our products are ordered as gifts so the billing and shipping information are different. Also, this means that only one email notification is sent out to just the recipient. This means that the person who placed the order is out of the loop for their order.

I'm surprised that no one else has encountered this error. I have never seen an e-commerce system not collect the information of the person placing the order.

This is correct. Customers cannot enter billing information if the order value is $0, but shipping (or pickup) information will be required and should be included in the order information.

To explain in more detail, orders for physical goods, regardless of the value will require shipping or pickup information in the "2. Order Options" section of the checkout. The only circumstances when this wouldn't be required is if the products were Services (instead of Physical goods) as these don't require shipping.

If an order does not require payment, the customer will not be able to provide payment information in the "3. Payment" section of the checkout. They click Continue without providing a name, address or payment information as it is not considered necessary.

I hope this helps to explain what should happen. However, if this is not your experience then I recommend you get in touch with Squarespace Customer Care.
