Tips & Tricks

To add custom fields to Booster’s PDF invoices, you should use [wcj_order_checkout_field] shortcode, e.g.:

[wcj_order_checkout_field field_id="billing_wcj_checkout_field_1"]
You can use use Custom CSS Options (accessible through WooCommerce > Settings > Booster > EMAILS & MISC. > General). For example, to change default view of custom checkout radio buttons:

WooCommerce Checkout Custom Fields - Radio button
Custom CSS code for radio buttons restyling: { display: inline !important; padding-left: 5px; } { content: '\A'; white-space: pre; }
Accessible through:
  • WooCommerce > Settings > Booster > Cart & Checkout > Checkout Custom Fields
Tested on WooCommerce 3.5.4 and WordPress 5.0.3
Plugin can be downloaded here. If there are any locked fields in the module, you will need to get Booster Plus to unlock them.

    I sent an email to Support, but thought I would ask here too.

    Is there a way to get the data generated by the Additional Fields passed to the generated emails as something other than a solid block of text with no field separators? We have 8 fields and we would (ideally) like a paragraph break after each field so that we could cut and paste this information into a spreadsheet.

    Hi, Is there a way of using a shorcode for invoice templates with this and how would you determine which custom field it was?

    Reply to thread

  7. Valentin Solovjov January 11, 2016 at 8:01 pm #


    Where can I find out what the custom field name is? And then some samples on how to use them in side a custom email/template – (lost here, no coding expertise).


    Its a little bit tricky at start. Here what you need to do :

    1) you need to go to the checkout page for example with google chrome browser and press right mouse click on the custom checkout field you need, and click inspect element

    image here:

    2) then you need to find field ID ant the right

    in my example its : billing_wcj_checkout_field_1

    and the shortcode you need to use is here : [wcj_order_meta before="TAX ID: " before="field_8" meta_key="_billing_wcj_checkout_field_1"]

    note that you can user additional option as before or after, also meta_key used with _ in front.

    Reply to thread

    • Booster Support Team April 26, 2016 at 12:10 pm #

      Hi Brenda,

      “Billing Details” text is a part of checkout template. Unfortunately there are no hooks to change it, so the best way to do it would be to edit the template itself. The file you need is “\wp-content\plugins\woocommerce\templates\checkout\form-billing.php”. The best way would be to copy it to your child theme folder, so you won’t lose changes after the updates. You can read more about editing WooCommerce templates here –

      There is another (but not recommended) method for changing that text. by using gettext filter ( The filter is intended to use for translations, but it will work for just changing the text. Add to your child theme’s functions.php file:

      Hope I made it a little more clear. Please let me know if you still will have troubles changing that text. I could log on to your server and make the neccessary changes.

      Best regards,

    I am having issues with displaying and charging shipping for my products since installing this plugin. The only module I have enabled is Prices and Currencies By country with 3 price zones: Canada, USA, and Europe. There are also 3 shipping zones setup, for the same areas. Canadian and Europe shipping rates and displayed and charged properly, however the USA is not.

    USA shipping zone via WooCommerce Shipping module at 4.00 flat rate. However at checkout the only information displayed for customers is “Flat Rate” with no value, and the customer is charged nothing. If I disable the plugin the information is displayed properly.

    I need your help please with solving this issue.

For example, I do not want Sunday to be a delivery date and likewise, our deliveries only occur from 9:00am to 5:00pm. Any suggestions if this is possible?

    Second question – I would like to program a small modal message on a radio button choice on my checkout form so that I can display a small message if the user chooses Yes or No. Any idea how I can accomplish that as well?

    • Booster Support Team November 2, 2017 at 9:19 pm #

      Hi Johannes,

      Not sure I understood you correctly, but after your customer fills the custom checkout field once, it is then refilled with that value each time customer visits the checkout page.

      If you mean you want to fill it with some value from some other user meta field, when customer visits the checkout for the first time – unfortunately that is not possible at the moment, but I will try to add it in next update.

    I wanted to tell Woocommerce to reinstall it like described in the steps below, but I don’t have this option:

    Click on the “Tools” tab at the top of the page
    On that page, the sixth option down is called “Install pages”.

      Hi Tom,
      Thank you for the reply. Yes it is there, thank you.

      Didn’t think of looking in status.

      Hope I get you while still online, If I could clear another doubt with you:

      By default the e-mail address on the check-out page is way down, is there any way I can move it up to be right after the Customer name?

    • Booster Support Team December 20, 2017 at 9:25 pm #

      Yes, why did they put “Tools” in “Status” was always a mystery to me also 🙂

      Regarding moving the e-mail address field – if you mean the default WooCommerce e-mail field, you need to enable Booster’s “Checkout Core Fields” module (in “WooCommerce > Settings > Booster > Cart & Checkout > Checkout Core Fields”), then locate “Billing Email” options section there and set “priority (i.e. order)” option to 20 (so it will go right after “Last name” field). You may also want to change billing email “class” option to “Full Row” there.

      Again hope that helps. Please let me know if you have any more questions or need any help.

    • Booster Support Team December 21, 2017 at 12:08 am #


      Hmm.. That’s strange.. You mean the main “Enable Module” checkbox for “Checkout Core Fields” module doesn’t stay enabled? If that’s correct – unfortunately I can’t solve this unless I login to your server, as it seems to be working fine on my test server..

    I’ve added a timepicker and it seems to work. But I think it has a bug showing value of “You guys rock” as the placeholder (can’t be override from the module setting) and when selecting the time, auto-filled postcodes from Chrome will show up instead of the time.

      There should not be any default placeholder unless you have added it under “Placeholder” text field in module settings. This is where you can replace it. Let me know if you require further assistance on this matter,

    Hi, how can I collect the data from the custom checkout fields and output it somewhere else? I am interested in getting the data from the custom fields and output it through a plugin that export delivery slips straight into the currier website…I just need to change a bit in the plugin script but I am not very good with PHP and I am not sure what function/key I need in order to do that. Thank You!

      Guys…if no one is answering here where can I get support?

    • RokasJ September 24, 2018 at 6:52 pm #

      Hi Cristi,

      You can access checkout fields with a shortcode [wcj_order_meta meta_key="..." ] where key should be your checkout field key (for example, [wcj_order_meta meta_key="_billing_wcj_checkout_field_1" ]). In code you should try out something like this: echo do_shortcode( ‘[wcj_order_meta meta_key="_billing_wcj_checkout_field_1"]‘ );
      echo do_shortcode( ‘[wcj_order_meta order_id="123" meta_key="_billing_wcj_checkout_field_1"]‘ );
      Please let me know how that goes.

    We are using the Checkout Custom Fields feature with type = “select”. We found that the data value stored in DB is somehow like the a slug instead of the “truth” value. i.e. our option value in the dropdown list is “Alan’s plugin”, what it save and what I can retrieve to display the value become “alans-plugin”. Understand that there might be a limitation to save some special character and space as a key but somehow we have to retrieve the actual value from what user have been selected. So “alans-plugin” can save as a key but “Alan’s plugin” needs to be able to retrieve and display as well.
    Am I missed sometime? Is it possible to get the exact option value? Thanks.

      Was this ever resolved? I am having a similar problem with a single checkbox field. Instead of YES or NO, I get 0 or 1.

    • Anfield January 17, 2019 at 3:28 am #

      No, I do not know why nobody is replying this.

    • RokasJ January 17, 2019 at 1:13 pm #


      This is because checkbox meta is saved as a boolean type which can only be those 2 values. Unfortunately it is not possible to change that yet.

      Thanks for clarifying. I was able to use some basic PHP to create a custom shortcode for the two checkbox fields I added to output “Yes” or “No” depending on the value your shortcode returned.

    Hi there,

    Excellent plugin. I have a question about how I can get the information from the custom checkout fields to appear on the customers invoice? We are using the custom checkout field for the customer to select either Friday or Saturday delivery and we really need their chosen selection to appear on the invoice.

    Any help greatly appreciated.

    Many thanks

    I have used the custom fields to give my customers the option to choose a future deliver date and time. However, with next orders the old date and time selected still show and come through with new orders if not changed by our customers. I have selected the ‘clear’ option, however that clearly does not clear the item with next orders.

    Please help as this is causing confusion when packing orders!

    Thanks in advance, Richard

    The question has been asked before but I couldn’t see the answer.

    I have created custom fields for date (Collection Date) and time (Collection Time)

    Please advise how I can change the date field to exclude Sundays? and how to on show only the hours between 9am and 4pm in the time field?

      Thanks for the quick response.

      Please could you give me an idea on when this is likely to be available? I’m not looking for a date to hold you too, are we talking weeks? months? a year?
      I don’t want to look for alternative solutions if this will be available soon.

    I have added a custom field to my checkout page, but unfortunately the priority option does not works. I have tried it with different values (1-5), but nothing happens.

    Could you help with it please?

    Thank you

    • RokasJ February 8, 2019 at 12:46 pm #

      Hi Janos,

      Priority values are usually multiples of 10, with the first field being 10, next 20 and so on. Could you try use bigger values?

      Hello Rokas,

      Works perfectly! Thank you!

      Is it possible to edit the error message, what is displayed if a required checkbox is missed?



    • RokasJ February 8, 2019 at 10:14 pm #

      Hi Janos,

      Unfortunately it is not currently possible to customize this message for checkout page but we have added it to our todo list.

    Does data from custom fields get including in order export data? Such as if we used the Booster For Woocommerce Export Tools module?

    Thank you,

    Reply to thread

    • RokasJ February 9, 2019 at 9:43 pm #

      Hi Loren,

      Yes, you can use Booster’s export tools to export these fields but you first would have to include meta keys in the export module settings.

    I’d like to place the custom checkout field someplace else on the page, whether via shortcode or another way. In a perfect world, I’d be able to add this in a shortcode that I would drop in a Booster Checkout Custom Info Block. I’m not looking to display the ‘value’ returned after someone completes the form (like I assume happens with [wcj_order_checkout_field]), but the actual input box.

    If my key=’order_wcj_checkout_field_1′ how would I place this form?

    I’ve read all the comments, as well as the documentation here and on the other checkout custom fields pages, and didn’t see anything on it. Guidance is appreciated.

      Hi Mitch,

      You can use [wcj_input_field] shortcode ( to add the input field (box) directly.

      Hi Rokas,

      Thanks for the info and the timely reply. So I messed around a bit with that process. In testing I was able to get
      [wcj_input_field label="mylabel" name="order_wcj_checkout_field_1"] to display when I placed it in the product itself or in a product custom tab.

      But it did NOT display when I placed it in a Checkout Custom Info Blocks content box (set to display ‘after customer details’ / position 10).

      Shouldn’t the input box display at the checkout page placement as well?


    • Mitch February 11, 2019 at 7:43 pm #

      I have it displaying on the checkout page via Custom Blocks now, was my error. 🙂

      But I am not able to export the information like I can with it when it is placed via the ‘section = Order Notes’ in the Checkout Custom Fields settings page.

      With that setup, I can use ‘_order_wcj_checkout_field_1’ to pull data entered in that box.

      But when I use [wcj_input_field label="mylabel" name="order_wcj_checkout_field_1"] and then try to use
      ‘_wcj_input_field_order_wcj_checkout_field_1’ to pull the inputted data, nothing shows in the report.

      What am I missing?

      Thanks a bunch, have a good day.

    • RokasJ February 18, 2019 at 8:55 pm #

      Hi Mitch,

      I have checked and it seems that this shortcode actually currently only works with Booster’s Custom Payment Gateways and the user input is visible in the order edit page, in the “Booster: Custom Payment Fields” meta box. Unfortunately it is not possible to put checkout custom fields elsewhere but we have added your suggestion to our todo list.

    Hi, I have a bunch of custom fields added to the checkout conditionally, based on the products in the cart. Everything works well, except that when I edit an order from the admin screen (for example changing a billing field) all the custom fields appear, even those that where conditionally hidden in the checkout page.
    Is it a bug or am I missing something?

    Reply to thread

    • RokasJ February 18, 2019 at 8:52 pm #

      Hi Nico,

      Do these fields only disappear from the order edit page or they also become inaccessible via shortcodes? What if you enable “Show Order Meta” option in “Admin Tools” module, does this data appear in the order edit page, in the order meta meta-box then?

      Best regards,

      Hi Rokas,

      I think I have not explained myself. I’ll try with an example.

      Say I have two custom fields and two products on my shop. Custom field 1 appears only if product A is in the cart and custom field 2 only if product B is in the cart.
      A customer buys product A and custom field 1 is shown at checkout time. Up to this point everything works as it should.
      Then the shop manager goes to the customer order to edit his billing phone. When he does that, custom field 2 also appear on the order page, even if it should not.

    Hello Booster team!
    I managed to create 2 custom fields on my checkout page but they appear by default at the top of the section while I would like them to appear at the end.
    I tried to change the priority order value but it doesn’t work.
    Could you please let me know how I could have them appear as fields number 8 and 9?
    Many thanks!
