I'm creating a madlib style checkout form using WooTheme's Customizing checkout fields using actions and filters.

Billing fields in the checkout template form-billing.phpare displayed with this call:

<?php foreach ($checkout->checkout_fields['billing'] as $key => $field) : ?>
<?php woocommerce_form_field( $key, $field, $checkout->get_value( $key ) ); ?>
<?php endforeach; ?>

How can change the order the fields appear?

The current (default) field order is:
first name
last name
company (hidden for me)
town/city
zipcode
country
state
email
phone

Default order:

I want the fields to be in a more natural order for Americans (where I live), so:
first name
last name
company (hidden for me)
town/city
state
zipcode
country
email
phone

How can I best do this?

Thanks to Dbranes for the answer.

Replace:

<?php foreach ($checkout->checkout_fields['billing'] as $key => $field) : ?>
<?php woocommerce_form_field( $key, $field, $checkout->get_value( $key ) ); ?>
<?php endforeach; ?>

With:

<?php 
// order the keys for your custom ordering or delete the ones you don't need
$mybillingfields=array(
    "billing_first_name",
    "billing_last_name",
    "billing_company",
    "billing_address_1",
    "billing_address_2",
    "billing_city",
    "billing_state",
    "billing_postcode",
    "billing_country",
    "billing_email",
    "billing_phone",
);
foreach ($mybillingfields as $key) : ?>
<?php woocommerce_form_field( $key, $checkout->checkout_fields['billing'][$key], $checkout->get_value( $key ) ); ?>
<?php endforeach; ?>

You can make a copy into your theme and edit the template that renders the checkout form.

Adapted from the plugin documentation:

Example
To overide the admin order notification, copy: woocommerce/templates/checkout/form-checkout.php
to
yourtheme/woocommerce/checkout/form-checkout.php

[update]

In this file, just before the fields being printed, there's this action hook: do_action('woocommerce_before_checkout_billing_form', $checkout);.

So, it's just a matter of adding this action in the theme's functions.php or in a custom plugin and reordering the fields as the OP shows in his Answer. No need of overriding the template, or yes if further customizations are needed.

The template you mentioned only allows you to move <?php do_action('woocommerce_checkout_billing'); ?> around wholesale. –  mattrepublic Jan 6 '13 at 13:30
    
I should've mention that I didn't checked the actual plugin files. Answer updated and expanded thanks to your answer. –  brasofilo Jan 6 '13 at 13:54

Same can be done throught functions.php in your (child) theme:

add_filter("woocommerce_checkout_fields", "order_fields");

function order_fields($fields) {

    $order = array(
        "billing_first_name", 
        "billing_last_name", 
        "billing_company", 
        "billing_address_1", 
        "billing_address_2", 
        "billing_postcode", 
        "billing_country", 
        "billing_email", 
        "billing_phone"

    );
    foreach($order as $field)
    {
        $ordered_fields[$field] = $fields["billing"][$field];
    }

    $fields["billing"] = $ordered_fields;
    return $fields;

}
