Default Addresses allow you to define one or more addresses for an account. For example, if you wish to provide a set list of address locations for your customers to choose from, this is the area you will provide that information.
Default addresses are displayed to users during the checkout process. Without any pre-defined list of default addresses, your customer will see an option to either select from previously used addresses or manually type in their address. This applies to both shipping and billing. If you have defined a list of default addresses, your user will be able to see them by clicking the drop-down box for their address book and selecting the relevant address. This allows the convenience of not having to manually type in an address or to look up another location's address,. This applies to both shipping and billing addresses.
