Disabling checkout with multiple addresses in Magento

As you will no doubt know, Magento is a well built and feature-rich ecommerce platform, but there are some default settings in Magento which we frequently seem to need to alter for our ecommerce clients. One of these is disabling checkout with multiple addresses

By default, Magento Community and Magento Enterprise versions allow customers to checkout from your store with multiple delivery addresses – a useful feature, but one that most store owners do not want enabled!

Disabling checkout with multiple addresses in Magento

To disable multiple address checkout in your Magento store, follow these steps:

Log in to your Magento administration panel and navigate to the System > Configuration option. In the left-hand menu, find the Sales option, and click the Shipping Settings (or Delivery Settings, if you have the British English language pack installed):

Magento - disable checkout with multiple addresses

Expand the Options panel you can now see, and set the Allow Shipping To Multiple Addresses dropdown to No.

Click the Save Config button to save this change (you may potentially need to refresh your caches in System > Cache Management to see the change appear on your store’s frontend).
