How to customise the checkout fields in WooCommerce

Creating custom fields in WooCommerce checkout

[vc_row][vc_column css=”.vc_custom_1537371577868{padding-right: 0px !important;padding-left: 0px !important;}”][vc_column_text]Do you need to add a custom field in WooCommerce checkout? There can be many reasons why you would want to edit the standard checkout fields. It may be because you need to add a field for a purchase order number, order notes or even additional business details that are required for you to process online orders.

The ability to manage the checkout page in WooCommerce is something that can be done with code modifications or a dedicated plugin. Both give you the capability to edit, reorder, remove and add custom fields to the checkout page to suit your needs. As this is the page that leads to your e-commerce store generating revenue, it’s important to get this step right.

The problem with code modifications is mistakes can be made and customizations need to be added in a child theme to prevent changes from being overridden by your theme during updates. It is also more time consuming and not very intuitive, to say the least.

When it comes to plugins, you have the option to use the official checkout field editor available on the WooCommerce store, for $49. This includes one years’ worth of updates meaning if you want to keep it up to date, you will need to pay this amount every year. There are other plugins available, all of which have pros and cons. The biggest downside with these premium plugins is that they cant be 100% compatible with every WordPress theme. That’s normally due to the fact that the developer for the plugin hasn’t been able to test their plugin against every single theme there is.

WooCheckout, our Shopify style checkout system for WooCommerce has this functionality built directly in! Better still, the one-off price of $49 includes lifetime updates and gives you an intuitive drag and drop builder. It is also compatible with every WordPress theme! How can we make this claim? Because WooCheckout replaces the default checkout page with a modern design. As the checkout page and field editor are contained within one plugin, it always works.

That is not all though. WooCheckout has a bunch of other great features all within one plugin, all of which are designed to increase your WooCommerce checkout conversions. From Google address autocomplete to one-page checkouts, WooCheckout is the number one modern checkout system for WooCommerce.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
