Magento 2 set unchecked my billing and shipping address are the same by default on checkout

Magento 2 checkout sets 'My billing and shipping address are the same' as checked by default.

Magento 2 checked My billing and shipping address are the same Magento 2 checked My billing and shipping address are the same

Often times you want to disable it and make it unchecked by default. I will show you how.


It seems like a simple html edit but it is not.

We need to modify applyBillingAddress function in vendor/magento/module-checkout/view/frontend/web/js/model/checkout-data-resolver.js around line 231:

applyBillingAddress applyBillingAddress

And comment out this part:

/*                if (shippingAddress &&
                    shippingAddress.canUseForBilling() &&
                    (shippingAddress.isDefaultShipping() || !quote.isVirtual())
                ) { 

And we need to modify file vendor/magento/module-checkout/view/frontend/web/js/model/shipping-save-processor/default.js :

vendor/magento/module-checkout/view/frontend/web/js/model/shipping-save-processor/default.js vendor/magento/module-checkout/view/frontend/web/js/model/shipping-save-processor/default.js

And commend out code around line 34:

                if (!quote.billingAddress()) {


But we can't modify the core javascript files itself (Magento 2 best practices!).

Instead we will create a simple Magento 2 module and will create a file app/code/Vendor/Module/view/frontend/requirejs-config.js with the following content:


var config = {
map: {
'*': {

Then copy vendor/magento/module-checkout/view/frontend/web/js/model/checkout-data-resolver.js to app/code/Vendor/Module/view/frontend/web/js/checkout-data-resolver.js and comment out in app/code/Vendor/Module/view/frontend/web/js/checkout-data-resolver.js around line 231:

            applyBillingAddress: function () {
                var shippingAddress;

                if (quote.billingAddress()) {

                shippingAddress = quote.shippingAddress();

                /*if (shippingAddress &&
                    shippingAddress.canUseForBilling() &&
                    (shippingAddress.isDefaultShipping() || !quote.isVirtual())
                ) {

And copy vendor/magento/module-checkout/view/frontend/web/js/model/shipping-save-processor/default.js to app/code/Vendor/Module/view/frontend/web/js/shipping-save-processor/default.js and in app/code/Vendor/Module/view/frontend/web/js/shipping-save-processor/default.js comment out code around line 34:

        'use strict';

        return {
            saveShippingInformation: function () {
                var payload;

                /*if (!quote.billingAddress()) {

                payload = { 
                    addressInformation: {
                        shipping_address: quote.shippingAddress(),
                        billing_address: quote.billingAddress(),


After that delete pub/static/frontend folder regenerate your static content:

php bin/magento setup:static-content:deploy

Clear magento cache and you should be all set.

    @Michael - I don't quite understand what you are after

    you can send me a request at www.goivvy.com/contacts and we can take it from there

    Is it safe to assume that you'd apply something similar to Gift Messages ... is there a particular file(s) I should be looking at?
