Here, you’ll find the default WooCommerce checkout fields under three field sets:

Attributes/options for fields

You can add nine different types of attributes or columns for the fields. These include:

  1. Name – the name of the field, which is used as the meta key to saving info. Must be unique.
  2. Type – the field should be text, radio, email or so on. Supports eight custom field types for now.
  3. Label – the field label shown in checkout. Whatever you add here will be suffixed to the Name after the underscore. For example, if you enter ‘state’ for the billing field, the Name of the field will be billing_state.
  4. Placeholder – text values. Describes the values that the store owner can add to the field.
  5. Validations – choose validation rules to apply. Email, phone, postcode, state and number are supported.
  6. CSS class – add some classes separate by a comma if you want to add some style elements to the fields.
