Why do you collect my buyer's billing address?
To reduce the risk of fraudulent transactions for our users, we default to collecting your buyers billing address when they make a purchase. Identifying the buyer location during the checkout process helps us bust fraud, and if you have your sales tax options switched on, it obviously allows us to calculate the correct sales tax for the transaction.
- If you have tax turned on or are selling physical items with shipping, or services with an address then we'll collect the billing address for you.
- If you are using 2Checkout, you are required to collect the customer's billing address, even if you would prefer to keep it off when selling digital products.
- If you prefer not to collect the address and do not have the tax enabled, go to Settings > Checkout > Settings and flick the switch off
