Shopper Fields

Shopperfields gather user input from the checkout process.

VirtueMart provides different types of shopperfields and the possibilty to extend them by plugins.

Any shopperfield can be set to required and the views in which they should be displayed can be selected.

Shopperfield defaults can be set. In case of the country or state field, it is possible to use an id for the default. When the shopper sees the user input field - the default value will be shown.  Shoppers can still change this if required.

Note: Working on the shopperfields must be done with caution.
