Need to get more address-related and contact information from customers? Do just that with this extension!
Very often address and contact information collected with standard Magento fields is not enough, because due to specific billing or delivery conditions you may need more details. For example there are no fields for mobile phone, room/apartment number, floor number and without this information delivery will be a lot more tricky and sometimes almost impossible, especially in big cities. You can learn more at http://amasty.com/address-attributes.html
