Billing Information Preferences

The Billing Information Preferences page enables administrators to configure the settings for the secondary address that is available for all payment types.

To access Billing Information Preferences, go to Admin > Tools > Learning > E-Commerce. Then, click the Billing Information link in the Shopping Cart and Billing Preferences section.

Secondary Address Name

In this field, enter the display name for the Secondary Address, up to 100 characters. If nothing is entered in this field, "Secondary Address" is displayed. If multiple languages are enabled for your portal, select the Translate icon to translate the field into other available languages. When a user's defined language has a localized value for the secondary address field, the field is displayed in the user's defined language. If a translation is not available for that user, then the field is displayed in the language of the administrator who first modified the field.

This affects the following areas:

  • Checkout - Payment
  • My Account - Billing Profile
  • User Payment Preferences

Secondary Address Fields

By default, the secondary address contains the following fields:

  • First Name
  • Last Name
  • Email
  • Address 1
  • Address 2
  • City
  • State
  • Country
  • Zip Code

In addition to the default fields, the secondary address can also include a Company Name and Phone Number field.


Select the Active checkbox for the appropriate field to make the field active and appear in the secondary address.


Select the Required checkbox for the appropriate field to make the field required. Note: If the secondary address is set as optional for a payment type in User Payment Preferences, then all secondary address fields are optional when the corresponding payment type is used, regardless of whether the Required option is selected.

Save or Cancel

Clicking Save commits the changes. Clicking Cancel returns the user to the Preferences page and does not save changes made to the page.
