Extra checkout fields
With Avarda Checkout you have an embedded checkout solution that handles both payment methods and customer address fields. In some cases you might need to collect more information than the regular customer address data.
Default checkout fields
The Avarda Checkout for WooCommerce plugin retrieve and populate the following address data in
WC()->customer (and the default WooCommerce checkout form) before the checkout form is submitted and the order is created in WooCommerce:
- Billing First name
- Billing Last name
- Billing Postcode
- Billing City
- Billing State (if needed)
- Billing Country
- Billing Phone
- Billing Email
- Shipping First name
- Shipping Last name
- Shipping Postcode
- Shipping City
- Shipping State (if needed)
- Shipping Country
Custom checkout fields
The plugin also handles extra checkout fields that has been added via the filter
woocommerce_checkout_fields. These fields will then be displayed below the order notes textarea field.
If you add the following code as a plugin or in your themes functions.php file:
Then the field will be displayed like this:
In this case we made the field a required field. By doing that the purchase will not be finalized when pressing the Complete payment button until data has been entered into the Custom info field.
Custom checkout fields that have been added to the regular WooCommerce checkout form via any of the hooks available inside the form might not be handled/processed by the Avarda Checkout plugin.
Compatibility with checkout field plugins
If you don’t want to add extra checkout fields via custom code there are several plugins that solves this. Avarda Checkout for WooCommerce has been tested with the following checkout field plugins:
- WooCommerce Checkout Field Editor.
- Checkout Field Editor (Checkout Manager) for WooCommerce
- Order Delivery Date for WooCommerce (Lite version).
