Hi All,
I searched in the forum before posting this topic. Adding New field topic was there, which seems to be little complex for me. Also not sure how to implement it for this particular scenario.
Here I need to add just a Telephone number field in shipping address in 'Guest Checkout Step_1 page', when user clicks radio button to select shipping address separate from billing. When a user selects different address for shipping, then the telephone number most probably could be different. Let the customer decide to give a different telephone if needed. If billing telephone number is taken as default, the the delivery man who can only contact the person at the billing address rather than the customer at delivery address when delivery is executed. I am not bringing any new info which is known to everyone. But it is one of most important requirements.

Any easy method that can be included by modifying the present Shipping extensions by Devs already in place [ Both Free Shipping extension and Flat Rate Shipping extension]. OR, any other code that can be easily implemented  by me to get this desired result?

UPDATE:
I inserted shipping_telephone in database to show in Guest Checkout Step_1 page and added in the php page also. Now the Telephone field is visible in Guest Checkout Step_1 page under shipping address with red asterisk. But it is not showing in Guest Checkout Step_3 page/Confirmation of order page.
What are the other steps to make it fully functional? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks
AVS :)

Re: Telephone Field in Shipping Address_Important But Missing

Hi All
I request someone to help me regarding. Still No reply from anyone.  Abantecart is really excellent in the flow except the areas I have pointed out in different posts. But the areas I have pointed out in all my post are crucial. Really needed one for Abantecart to evolve more.

If Telephone number in shipping address is  different than billing address, then a customer has no choice to enter the same in guest checkout_step 1 page.  It is practically a defective one in Abantecart.
It could be a easy fix for Devs and knowledgeable persons. Unfortunately no reply.  :(

Can someone help me?
Thanks
AVS

Really unfortunate that no one could help me with this issue. I don't know how people are using this when they want to deliver to a customer  who may need to give different telephone number. Billing address telephone number is not enough in this situation. I wonder why, no one has ever pointed it out in this forum. Telephone field in shipping address section must have been built in Abantecart. There must not be a need to do it as a modification. But very unfortuantely,  it is not built in is definitely a defect in basic design according to me.
More sad is no one has any solution for this  :(
