Make Billing Address Optional When Adding Credit Card
Currently the billing address is required to match the credit card being pre-registered. We only have about half of the addresses (very few for sponsor guests) and it takes an awful long time to type this info in, as lines forming to check in. Or we have a home address - and they are using business card. I know our merchant account doesn't require an address - it just costs us more if we don't use one. I would like the option to make it a requirement or not. Anything to speed up the process!
Requiring address totally holds up registration !!

This has been "under review" for 4 years! Why can't you do it?
Why is this required by RSA? For auctions, we know most of our customers. At most zip code to verify if the CC company wants it. This was a real PIA, and a bit awkward having to ask teachers for their home addresses which they might want to keep private.
Has there been any updates to this issue? I see that it has been under review as of this past January. Thanks!

Please make the billing address optional for speed reasons! I contacted Ready, Set Auction regarding the use of a USB credit card swiper/reader and found out that even with a swiper/reader, you STILL have to enter the billing address!?!? This undermines the ENTIRE purpose of having a credit card swiper/reader when you have to enter in the billing address (or portion thereof). For the sake of speed and efficiency during our auction item checkout, please make the billing address requirement optional, at least for the use of a credit card swiper/reader! A small change for a huge improvement!
A tip to speed this up: You need only enter the street number (not the entire street address) in the address field.
