Ship to Address in SRM
When creating a shopping cart users have several options for the Delivery address:
1) They could either set a default address in their attribute/personalization which appears in all items
2) They could go into each line item and select a pre-stored delivery address or enter the address manually.
However there is no option to store a default address for each shopping cart or to copy the address among items.
This is important when shopping carts with large number of items are being created and data like cost centres and ship to addresses need to be changed frequently.
Any pointers on how this could be done?
When the user clicks on Shop link, there is no way to select a default address beforehand.
This feature is available in professional shopping cart (extended form, single screen shop). This is dedicated to the professional users like purchasers or purchasing assistants who create shopping carts on a regular basis. But you can extend this to all SC creators as well.
Documentation is from SRM 5.0 but the same concept holds good for SRM 7.0.
Login as Operational purchaser and create Shopping cart through purchasing tab, you would be able to see the professional SC. You can maintain all the default settings like delivery address, account assignment & so on.
Hope this solves.
