WP eStore plugin has a built in option to collect customer input for each of your products. However, if you need to collect an input from your customers in the shopping cart (not just for individual products) then this extension should be helpful.
You can use this addon to collect upto 2 custom input from your customers per shopping cart transaction.
It can be used to show an input field in the cart like the following example:
The input value entered by the customer will be saved with this customer’s transaction in the customers menu.
Installing the Addon
You can install this addon the same way you install any WordPress plugin:
- Go to the “Add New” plugins screen in your WordPress admin area
- Click the “upload” tab
- Browse for the addon file (estore-collect-customer-input-in-cart.zip)
- Click “Install Now” and then activate the plugin
Using this Addon
Step 1) In order to configure the collect customer field, click on the “Customer Input” sub-menu under the WP eStore plugin menu.
Step 2) Enter the label for the customer input field (the addon will use this label in the cart). You can configure a maximum of 2 custom input fields. If you want to use just one field then leave the 2nd field empty.
Optionally, you can make the customer input field to be a required field (so a customer has to enter a value before they can checkout).
The input value entered by the customer can be seen by viewing a transaction record from the manage customers menu of the eStore plugin.
Adding the Input Field Value to the Notification Email
You can optionally add this input field to the sale notification email also. Use the following email merge tag in the notification email settings:
