Checkout > Configuration > Payment Fields
The Payment Fields section in the Configuration of the Shopping Cart is where you can control the fields seen on the Shipping and Billing step during the checkout process. Here you can set which fields are required, you can hide the fields and you can change the name of the field as seen by the customer.
All fields are set to be visible and required by default. The administrator may select which fields should not display and which should not be required, by de-selecting the appropriate checkboxes.
Some fields are needed for obvious reasons. Examples are the Address, City, State/Province, Zip/Postal Code and Country fields that are needed for the shipping step as these details are important for delivery of the purchased items to the customer. These would, on the other hand, not be necessary in the case of digitally downloadable products.
