Managing custom fields in Opencart 3, account, address, and affiliate

In Opencart 3 we can add custom fields in the account section, address section and affiliate section. When you add the custom fields in the account section then it will show the fields in the registration form and shows it when customer edit their information and similar for the address and affiliate section.

Example of the custom field in the registration form

Let’s say we want to know the size of the customer while they register so that we can target our marketing efforts with their sizes of products. When you add the custom radio field then it may look like below in the registration form:

Click the blue-button to add the custom field then you will see a form like below. The location field is the one you will select where you want to show the field. You can show the field on the account section, address section and affiliate section. We have a “Contact us” form also but we cannot add a custom field on Contact us form for now. We will soon write a post on how to add the custom field to the contact us form.

Then, you choose other options like which customer group to show, whether it is required or not, select the status to Enabled and add the sort order. Use minus to count backward from the last field in the set to show above the field as for sorting the field. Once you set all of these options then save it and your custom fields are shown in the front end and backend.
