In this tutorial, we’ll focus on how to add WooCommerce conditional logic fields to the checkout page.
Profile Builder – WooCommerce Sync add-on makes it super easy to add custom user fields to the WooCommerce checkout page and sell WooCommerce product add-ons, as well as manage the Customer Shipping and Billing Address fields.
It allows you to extend the WooCommerce checkout page, with support for all Profile Builder Pro custom field types, including conditional logic and repeater fields.
Uses for Conditional Logic on WooCommerce Checkout
The most frequent use cases for adding conditional logic revolve around:
- offering WooCommerce extra product options that require extra user information to be collected;
- collecting different types of information for different types of users;
- selling variable products or WooCommerce product add-ons.
Basically, every time you need to show certain extra fields (or groups of fields) on the product page according to the user choice, conditional rules come into play.
For the purpose of this tutorial, we’ll be using the following WooCommerce plugins:
- WooCommerce – the popular eCommerce plugin, for adding a shop functionality to your website;
- Profile Builder (Hobbyist or Pro version, both compatible with WooCommerce) – for creating and managing the custom user fields that we want to add to WooCommerce checkout;
- WooCommerce Sync add-on (included in Profile Builder premium versions) – for adding conditional logic fields to the WooCommerce Checkout page.
So let’s see how you can add WooCommerce conditionals to your own online store!
Adding WooCommerce Conditional Logic Fields to the Checkout Page
Assuming you have already installed and configured WooCommerce to fit your online store needs, we’ll proceed to install and set up Profile Builder and the WooCommerce Sync add-on. Both are installed just like any other WordPress plugin.
After installation, make sure to activate both Profile Builder and WooCommerce Sync add-on, then navigate to Profile Builder → Form Fields. Here you have a list of all the custom user fields (like text area, text field, input field, date field, checkbox group, file upload, and select fields) which can be added to front-end forms (like Register or Edit Profile) created with Profile Builder.
From the “Form Fields” interface you can add all types of custom user fields and also choose which ones you wish to display on the WooCommerce checkout form using the dropdown. For the purpose of this tutorial let’s say you’re selling tickets for an event and as an organizer, you want to know if the participants have any dietary restrictions.
On the WooCommerce checkout page, when users purchase a ticket, we’ll ask the users if they have any dietary restrictions and only if they answer “Yes”, we’ll display a list of options to pick from, like “Vegan”, “Gluten-free” or “Lactose-free”.
For this, under the Form Fields page, open the ‘Fields’ dropdown and select ‘Radio’. Enter a field title like “Do you have any dietary restrictions?” and two options: “Yes” and “No”. Then make sure to tick the checkbox stating “Display on WooCommerce Checkout“. This will make sure this field is displayed on the Checkout page.
Next, we’ll add a new ‘Select’ field, that will allow users to select their specific dietary restrictions. We’ll set it up to display conditionally, only if the user selects “Yes” to “Do you have any dietary restrictions?”. You can add multiple conditions for each field that has conditional logic enabled, as well as pick from several conditional logic options.
After adding these fields and extra options let’s see how the WooCommerce Checkout form will look like.
As you notice, you’ll first see the question of dietary restriction. If the user selects “Yes”, he can then select a dietary preference.
