Home > Blog > MotoPress news > Add or Remove Checkout Fields in the Appointment Booking Form with the New Add-on!

Ever wanted to collect more information about customers via the appointment booking form? Or, on the contrary, looking to remove all the current fields to enable customers to schedule appointments with the speed of light? Or basically want to mark any field as non-required? Now everything is possible!

You can completely transform the customer checkout experiences with the brand-new Checkout Fields add-on for the Appointment Booking plugin.

Whether you are operating a yoga studio and need to find out about the student level and goals, or want to personalize the travel experience by capturing a preferred guide language for the city tour booking, the add-on is what you need.

Without the checkout fields editor extension, the plugin’s booking form allows you to collect only basic customer details, such as a name, email address, phone number, and customer notes on the checkout step. What’s more, those are fixed, you can’t move them, rename, or delete.

But the new add-on unlocks huge capabilities! Some of them include:

  • Capture valuable customer data beyond contact details. With more dedicated fields, such as a checkbox, country, or heading, you can fully personalize the checkout step for your business needs.
  • Enable quick bookings and payments. Make it super simple for customers without a need to fill in any fields. You can make any field non-required or completely delete chosen ones.
  • Enjoy more customization flexibility. Change the order of the fields, customize placeholders, and make chosen fields non-required. You can even completely disable all the fields!

How to enable the add-on?

Purchase the add-on and then install the add-on as a regular plugin on your WordPress, then go to Appointments > Checkout Fields.
