Most of us use the default WooCommerce for our store’s checkout. We can’t edit or remove the extra (default) checkout fields.
Checkout is the most crucial stage for every Ecommerce store. It is where either the customer makes a purchase or leaves your site. So, we must provide related checkout fields for them.
Our default page doesn’t provide relevant checkout fields based on our product niches. Thus, it increases the chance of site abandonment.
In this article, we provide a simple technique to remove the unwanted checkout fields from your WooCommerce checkout page. Also, tips to customize the page.
First, let’s look at a short example to clarify.

A Simple Example
Now, let’s say you are a customer and visit an Ecommerce site to buy a product. Once the product features fulfill your niches, you’ll proceed to the checkout.
On checkout, you see several fields to fill for making that purchase. But, some of the checkout fields feel irrelevant to the product you want to purchase.
Then, what will you do?

You’ll abandon the site and purchase the product on another site that provides a customized checkout page. Right?
So, customize your WooCommerce checkout pages properly and based only on your product niches to avoid such abandonment.
Why do we Customize WooCommerce Checkout Pages?
I’m telling you a fact that nearly 71% of the customers abandon Ecommerce store sites. They visit online stores, choose their desired product, and add that to their cart. But, they left that site without purchasing after they reached the checkout page.
The reason is that most sites didn’t customize their checkout pages based on their product niche. So, the customers abandon the sites.
