Add Custom Fields Options to WooCommerce Checkout
Add the option of adding custom fields to the checkout process of WooCommerce. This would give us the ability to collect additional information (sometimes required) from the purchaser to complete their order.
It can also be a "module" option between the "cart" and the final "checkout"
Example: 1. add to cart, 2, provide additional information, 3. checkout.
I currently use Cart66 and GravityForms to accomplish this, but would love to replace this with WooCommerce if they could add this feature! Anyone else think it's a good idea??? Vote please :)
Thanks for voting on this idea for WooCommerce!

I use the Checkout Field Editor, but want the customer entered values to be remembered when the customer checks out the next time. Any way this can be done. with any other plugin perhaps?
How about https://wordpress.org/plugins/loushou-acf-for-woocommerce/ . It works with a plugin you are probably already using, Advanced Custom Fields (and/or PRO).

Would also really love the ability to conditionally display a field based on criteria like product ID or product category in cart. Only 2 plugins that I have found do this, and neither of them have it working perfectly. Ideally this feature could be offered from WooThemes. I'd pay a pretty penny for this.
I've been able to add the field I want to the check out page and it seems that the customer is able to put data in the field. I can't see that data when I download the orders however. My field is called customer message. My message is "How did you find us?"
Woocommerce...Pllleeeeease sort the registration out! Just a username and email is NO good!

postmeta is the table where this data is.

Where does the Checkout Fields data live? Can't find them in any of the WC tables and even Export CSV doesn't export them. What am I missing here?
This would have been awesome if the fields created could alter the customers total bill. E.g. like the Country / State fields alter tax, have the additional fields be for added extras or changing the billing amount/cycle for subscriptions. Especially when trying to avoid the Products Page..
It would equate to a one page checkout - with addons and billing cycle.
The proposed extension is not what I had hoped for. I wished a the possibility to insert, eventually a Gravity Form, rather than simple fields. In that way one could benefit of conditional logic, ajax forms, lots of fields, merge tags and much more... Perhaps Lucas Stark, the author of the Gravity Forms addon extension could introduce support for this Checkout Field Editor too?
A nice & very useful extension. But if I were to only add a date field, I would choose the order delivery date plugin over this one.
New woocommerce extension has been released ! wooo hoooo...finally..Checkout the woocommerce extensions ...
Why is no one from Woothemes making this happen ? It's been wanted for years now and has the most votes. Is it because you don't want to/cannot create a plugin for sale and have to offer it for free ? or is it because you are waiting for Jigoshop to implement it and then you can shamelessly copy it ?
any possibility to see your plugin “ready for the world very soon”? I think lot of people here are interested, for example to distinguish between private (no VAT ID field required) and business customers (VAT ID and other fields required).
How could we contact you?

Should also give the possibility to have the custom field as a required field -- but depending on the type of customer. Let me explain:
On the checkout page I need a choice of customer type. Eg. “commercial” or “non-profit”.
Depending on the customer type the customer will have to provide additional information. Eg. the commercial customer is obliged to provide a VAT-number. The non-profit customer isn’t.
In addition I need to add a surcharge/handlers fee to the order placed by the commercial customer. Even if the shipping calculation gives free shipping the commercial customer needs to be charged this surcharge/handlers fee.

I am eagerly awaiting info on this subject. Really need these custom checkout boxes, including the fileupload.
+1 waiting for Chriss Rey plugin or a method to adding a Gravity Form to checkout
@Chrissy Rey - Any updates ?
Yes please also custom fields that are saved to the user profile and visible on the My Account/registration page for things like Birthday.
Chrissy Rey - any update on the status of your plugin? Can you give us a timeframe when this will be available?
