    I have the phone number field checked in required fields but it's either not requiring the customer to enter the number or it's not keeping the number. I need the phone number especially on international orders. Is this just a glitch or is there a way to fix it so it will always be required? It's been happening forever, I just never took the time to ask!

    If your payments are being processed by PayPal there is a setting in PayPal where you can make the phone number required. Customers are leaving Mal's to make the payment so if PayPal does not require the number it doesn't mater if Mal's asked for it or not. You won't get it.

    If not using PayPal maybe other processors are the same way.

    I'm on ww6 and use paypal pro. I'll go check in paypal for the required number. I never get a phone number on international orders. I think I've had a number once.
