Checkout Field Editor

Checkout Field Editor

By: Developed by WooCommerce - Automattic
Added: December 2, 2020
Safe to use, minimal to no impact on site performance.


Customize your Checkout Fields via your admin panel

The checkout field editor provides you with an interface to add, edit and remove fields shown on your WooCommerce checkout page. Fields can be added and removed from the billing and shipping sections, as well as inserted after these sections next to the standard ‘order notes’.

The editor supports several types for custom fields including text, select, checkboxes and datepickers.

Core fields can also be moved around giving you more control over your checkout without touching the code.

For example:

  • Delivery instructions
  • Additional Contact Details
  • Message to site owner
  • Customize what Order information is included in Customer Emails/Order Detail Pages (My Account > Orders)

What Are Its Limitations?

  • You cannot add fields to emails/order details as a means of adding content to a purchase email. I.e.: “The customer wants their privacy disclosure included in the e-mail.”
  • You cannot add additional payment gateway options. I.e.: “The customer wants this obscure Canadian payment gateway. Can you make a radio button that changes between PayPal or that?”
  • The Password field does not inform user account generation, add a DRM-like password to goods, etc. It is merely an “obscured text” area. Verified by WooCommerce support.
  • Although possible, removing the standard fields can have negative impacts with all other WooCommerce add-ons (subscriptions, memberships, etc.)
