Magento 2 Custom Checkout Fields: Benefits
The Magento 2 Custom Checkout Fields extension is meant to make the checkout page more informative and user-friendly. Though fine-tuning the checkout page brings a lot more benefits, those below are the key ones:
- Create a seamless customer experience with a personalized checkout
- Get to know your customers better – collect customer data at the registration and checkout to improve marketing
- Design the checkout page that gives you more information about customers and keeps the checkout convenience
- Manage customer order data efficiently thanks to an improved order grid and integration with third-party apps via API
How to customize Magento 2 checkout page? Available options
Easy-to-use checkout page curbs cart abandonment. Here are some ways to ensure it:
- Create checkout fields based on customer data, group, store view, etc.;
- Add autofill based on customer’s data provided;
- Set up attribute dependencies to display certain field only after the parent field was filled in. This way you’ll manage to keep the checkout compact.
Feel free to create as many different attributes as you need – find your ideal combination. For example, let customers leave comments to orders in the text field or let them quickly specify their demographics by marking checkboxes. To gently get maximum information, you can parcel out your custom input forms to checkout steps and ask for data with regard to the process stage (such as shipping, payment, or reviews).
What this extension does for your customers
Show only relevant custom fields to avoid confusion
You can decide which fields to add to the checkout page taking into account customers’ data and their assignment to particular customer groups or store views. For example, you can display an order attribute related to a particular shipping method and this way enable only the customers that choose self-delivery to leave comments in the text area.
Autofill values to save customers’ time
Save data in certain custom fields, such as name, country, or preferred shipping method, to cut the time required to complete future purchases. Also, you can apply default values to empty input forms (if they are not obligatory) to let customers choose whether to submit information or not.
Add a calendar to speed up the checkout process
This calendar will make it quick and easy for customers to pick the delivery date.
Use attribute dependencies to keep checkout compact
Create dependencies between custom checkout fields and this way maintain a concise and transparent appearance of the checkout page. A dependent order attribute will appear on the screen only after a user picks a particular value of the parent attribute.
Use tips to make the checkout process transparent
Complement custom fields with tooltips that will clarify what each attribute stands for and why you need such data. Be honest and precise, and customers will trust you with more information if they feel that this is a win-win deal.
Stay consistent and keep custom fields data in HTML printouts, PDFs and emails
Accuracy brings trust. You can add custom fields to the HTML documents which customers can access via their account pages, include them in PDFs (invoices or shipment details) and order emails (booking or payment confirmation).
Bringing value to your admins
Conveniently edit checkout fields values on the backend
This extension makes order confirmation more handy for admins. Now you can create an order from the admin panel and, if necessary, change the custom fields values after an order is submitted by a customer. If an input form is left empty, you can apply a default value even if this attribute is visible only to admins. Provide a calendar to make the editing process even more user-friendly.
Manage custom checkout fields on the grid
You can use order grid to view, filter, and edit your custom input forms. While the checkout page becomes more advanced and informative, its management is getting just easier.
Leverage every bit of customer data that you get
The Checkout Fields module allows adding attributes via API. This way, you can integrate your webstore with a loyalty management system, CRM, ERP, or other software and automatically update information in them right after customers submit it on the checkout page.
Limit the rights to edit order data
Do you have a big team managing the Magento 2 store? Take full control over orders data and empower only particular admins to edit values of custom fields. No data loss, no mess. Order processing works as you expect.
