Additional registration fields

You can enable and add extra registration fields in the WooCommerce registration form for new users.

These fields include all the standard WooCommerce billing and shipping fields. You can also add a field for a company’s VAT number. Plus, you can add your own custom fields.

Adding extra fields

To add new fields:

  • Go to WooCommerce > Settings > Members Only > Registration
  • Check the fields that you’d like to enable for the registration form by checking the ‘Enabled’ field next to the field name
  • Select which fields the users will be required to complete by checking the ‘Required’ box
  • Use the ‘Email’ field to specify which field values should be included in the new registration email to the admin
  • Check the ‘Profile’ to add the field value to the user’s profile metadata
  • Use the ‘Priority’ field to determine the order in which fields appear on the registration form. Fields with lower priorities appear first
  • Add an optional description to the ‘Description’ field. This will appear on the registration form
