Table of Contents
In most Ecommerce stores, we use the default WooCommerce for our checkout. Some fields like the first name, last name, street address, and others are there. But, all industries don’t want such default fields for their checkout.
Also, we can’t edit the fields provided by the default WooComemerce.
But, there is a way!
We can add or edit the checkout fields by using custom codes or with the help of a plugin.
Learning specific codes for customizing our checkout pages takes time and is time-consuming. So, we take the other path, the plugin.
Why should we use the Checkout Plugin?
In WordPress, there are lots of plugins to help us. They use for store setups, payment options, cart recovery, several shipping issues, and customizing our product, cart, checkout pages, and so on.
Likewise, we’re going up to use a Checkout Field Editor plugin to customize our WooCommerce checkout pages based on our needs.
The plugin can eliminate several page problems and site abandonment rates. But, there is a little hitch.
WordPress provides a ton of well-featured plugins for us. We are the ones who have to select which one is suitable. So, our team has picked up a plugin that can be suitable for almost all Ecommerce sites (contains checkout).
So, have a look at it.
