How to Remove the Billing Address Fields for Free Virtual Products with WooCommerce

When you create a virtual product in WooCommerce, the shipping option is removed, but for billing reasons, the customer is required to fill out their address.

Now if you offer a free virtual product or someone uses a coupon code to purchase a virtual product and the checkout total is $0, they are still required to put in a billing address. Which is unneeded and requires more effort from the customer. You want to make this process as easy as possible.
