We all know, by default Odoo lets the customers enter only one billing address on the website. There is no provision to save multiple addresses for billing. They can add a different shipping address but only at the time of check out. But what if they need the order to be invoiced to a different address? They would have to update the current billing address first. And what if the customer enters the address incorrectly? He would have to go through the entire process again. Kind of frustrating and time-consuming. Isn’t it?
Our Odoo Website Customer Address Book Module lets your customers maintain their own handy Address Book in the account. They can add as many billing and shipping addresses to the account as they want of the outlets, shops, storage etc and save them simultaneously. So, next time they can select the one they want with just one click and add them to their order.
- Provide your customers with their own Address Book.
- Allows the customers to save multiple addresses, both for billing and shipping.
- No need for the customers to update the current billing address. They can simply add a new one in the address book.
- Faster order placement for your customers by allowing them just click and add the billing and shipping addresses to the order.
- No more need for the customer to go the check out page every time to add a new shipping address on the account.

2.) After installing the module, login to the website account. A new tab ‘Manage Address Book’ shows in the customer’s account. Click on it.
3.) You can add multiple billing and shipping addresses here. Click on ‘Add an address’.
4.) Enter the address details on the form that opens up and click on Save.
5.) You will be able to see the newly added address(s) along with the previously saved addresses.
