To allow customers to create an account, you may need to add additional fields on the WordPress form. Indeed, by default, WooCommerce offers the possibility to activate the Email address and password field. These fields are often not representative of the realities of companies. We will see how to add the fields that interest us. This without having to install an extension.

Follow the steps below to add an extra field to WooCommerce registration form

To add an extra field to the WooCommerce registration form, you can follow these steps:

  • Open your WordPress dashboard and navigate to the “Appearance” section.
  • Select "Theme Editor" from the drop-down menu.
  • In the list of theme files on the right side of the screen, select "functions.php".
  • Scroll to the bottom of the "functions.php" file and add the following code:
  • Save the changes in the “functions.php” file.

This code will add a new field called “Additional Field” to the WooCommerce registration form. It will also validate the field to ensure it is not left blank and save the field value to the user's metadata upon signup. You can customize the field label and validation message by modifying the text in the add_extra_registration_field() and validate_extra_registration_field() functions, respectively.
