I have an email address field that shows up at the top of my commerce checkout form for anonymous users. It's a required field. However I've added my own email address field to the form further down the page in the billing information area. I don't want the account information fieldset and associated email address field at all because only anonymous users use the site.

Does anyone know where I can find this email address field...is it in views somewhere? I'd just hide the whole fieldset but the field is required so I need to actually remove it from the code somehow.

You can disable Account info section by dragging it to disable section by visiting page 'admin/commerce/config/checkout'.

As in the screenshot Account Information is in Disabled instead of Checkout which is default configuration. enter image description here

But remember there is a default rule which tries to create an account for anonymous user using the email id, you might have to disable it, or may have to turn in conditional.

  • thanks that worked well. Can you explain more what you mean about your last sentence re: default rules?

  • nothing major, I meant go to 'admin/config/workflow/rules' and see what all rules you need actually, as an example rule with title 'Create a new account for an anonymous order'' will throw a warning since it will not find an email id.

  • You also need to check your confirmation email rules. In the case of Commerce Message, the rules use the Account email address when generating the email confirmation to the customer. Commented Dec 16, 2016 at 0:03
