One of the first puzzling issues I have run into is the fact that you can no longer configure on a single customer different types of addresses e.g. invoice address and shipping address. After a quick search on google I ran into the following solution:
In short, here is what you need to do:
- Go to Settings -> Configuration -> Sales and enable “Allow a different address for Delivery and Invoicing”.
- For this to work, you need to create a customer and mark this customer as a company (even if the customer is not a company). Then create another customer and specify the newly created company as the parent company. Once you specify a customer as being a child of a company, an address type field will be shown, allowing you to specify the default shipping address for example.
Whilst this looks like a OK way of working when you need to configure a company with different shipping and invoice addresses, it just feels very awkward and not user-friendly to do this for an individual customer.
Let me know what you think…
