Validate VAT number on the account details page

The VAT number is only validated on the checkout page by this plugin. It’d be reasonable to validate it on the account details (my-account/edit-account) page for customers, too.

Alternatively, you could make $wc_eu_vat_my_account a global and then the following snippet would implement what I’m advising.

add_action(‘woocommerce_save_account_details’, function ($id) {
global $wc_eu_vat_my_account;
try {
$user = get_userdata($id);
$wc_eu_vat_my_account->validate($_POST[‘vat_number’], $user->billing_country);
update_user_meta($id, ‘vat_number’, $_POST[‘vat_number’]);
} catch (Exception $e) {
wc_add_notice($e->getMessage(), ‘error’);
}, 12);
