How to configure the Checkout Custom Fields module

After the successful installation of the module, you need to configure it. There are three sections in the module configuration.

  • Display attachment URL in invoice, delivery slip and order confirmation mail: Enable this option if you want to display the attachment URL on the invoice, delivery slip, and order confirmation email.

If the admin wants then he can display the attachment file URL to the customer by enabling the display attachment URL option.


Custom fields


Under the custom field option, the admin can create and view all the custom fields.

Custom field groups

Under the custom field group tab, the admin can create multiple groups and add multiple fields to a group to display the custom fields at the front end during the checkout process.


Creating custom Fields

After configuring the general settings the admin needs to create the custom fields to display the custom options at the checkout stages.


The admin can add the following types of custom fields to display at the checkout process:

  • Text
  • Dropdown
  • Checkbox
  • Radio
  • Attachment
  • Dropdown multiselect
  • Text area
  • Date
  • Time
  • Date and time
  • Readonly field




While adding the dropdown field, the admin needs to add the values so that the user can select them during the checkout process.



The admin can add a checkbox field in a similar way he added the dropdown field.






Dropdown multiselect



The admin can add a textarea field in a similar way he added the text field the only difference between text and textarea field is in fewer input characters in the input box, while the textarea creates a bigger box meant for longer texts, like messages.



With this field type, the admin can take user input as a date. The user needs to select the date from a calendar displayed on the front end.



With this option, the admin can allow the customer to take input in time.


Date and time

With the field option the admin can input as a date and time format.


Readonly fields

This field is only used to display a message to the users at the checkout stage. The admin can not take any user input by using this field.


Creating custom field groups

After creating the custom fields the admin need to create the field groups to display the field at the checkout stage.

The admin can add multiple fields into a single custom field group. Also, the single field can be added in multiple custom field groups.


To create a custom field group the admin needs to click on “Add new group button”. After clicking on button the admin will redirect to a page from where he can create a new custom field group.


Group name: Enter the name of the custom group field.

Assign custom fields: By clicking on the add field button the admin can add and choose the fields he wants to add to the group.

Checkout step: Choose the checkout step on which the admin wants to display the options available in the group. There are following five steps available in the module on which the admin can display or take user input by adding the custom fields.

  • Cart page
  • Personal Information step
  • Address step
  • Shipping step
  • Payment step

Country and currency: Choose the country and currency on which the admin wants to display the custom fields available in the group.

Minimum Amount: Enter the minimum amount of the cart value to display the custom fields.

Availability date: Set the display validity date of the custom fields available in the group.

Status: Enable/Disable the status of the group.

Categories: Select the categories for those products the admin wants to display the fields.

Groups: Select the customer groups to display the custom fields.

Product restriction: Select the products to display the custom fields on the checkout step.


These custom field group conditions will be applied if one of the following products exists in the cart. If not selected any products, it will be applicable to all products.

All the set conditions must be fulfilled to display the custom fields on the selected step.

For example: If the admin made a group with the conditions available in the below image.


So, as per the conditions set by the admin for this custom field group in the above screenshot. The user should belong to the customer group and there should be at least one quantity of “Hummingbird printed t-shirt” product in his cart to view the custom fields on the cart page.


As you can check in the above-mentioned image that the customer is registered and belongs to the customer group but the custom fields are not displayed on the cart page. This is because the admin has not added any quantity of the “Hummingbird printed t-shirt” product, which didn’t fulfill the condition as set by the admin while creating the custom field group.


Now, after adding the “Hummingbird printed t-shirt” product to the cart the user can view the custom fields on the cart page.
