How Do I Customize Registration in WooCommerce?

If you’re using WooCommerce to sell products or services online, then you’ll likely want to allow customers to register for an account on your site. By default, WooCommerce includes a basic registration form that allows customers to create an account and login to your site.

However, you may want to customize the registration process to better suit your needs. For example, you may want to add additional fields to the registration form, or change the default e-mail that is sent to new customers.

In this article, we’ll show you how to customize registration in WooCommerce. We’ll cover both the front-end and back-end aspects of customization, so you can tailor the registration process to perfectly fit your store.

Adding Additional Fields to the Registration Form

One of the most common ways to customize registration is by adding additional fields to the form. This can be useful if you want to collect more information from your customers, such as their address or phone number.

WooCommerce makes it easy to add additional fields to the registration form. To do this, simply go to WooCommerce > Settings > Accounts > Registrations and scroll down to the “Additional Fields” section. Here, you can add as many additional fields as you like.

PRO TIP: If you are not familiar with code or programming, do not attempt to customize registration in WooCommerce yourself as you could break your site. Hire a professional developer to help you with this task.

For each field, you can choose whether it’s required or optional, and what type of field it is (text, number, datepicker, etc.). Once you’re finished adding fields, don’t forget to click on the “Save Changes” button at the bottom of the page.

Your additional fields will now appear on the registration form for your customers. They will be able to fill out these fields when creating their account on your site.

Changing the Default E-Mail Sent to New Customers

By default, WooCommerce sends a new customer an e-mail when they create an account on your site. This e-mail includes their username and password, as well as a link to login to their account.

You may want to change this e-mail so that it includes different information or is sent from a different address. To do this, go to WooCommerce > Settings > Accounts > Registrations. Then scroll down to the “Registration E-Mail” section and make any changes that you like.

Be sure to click on the “Save Changes” button when you’re finished making changes so that they will take effect.


Customizing registration in WooCommerce is easy and can be done either on the front-end or back-end of your site. By adding additional fields or changing the default e-mail sent out upon registration, you can tailor the experience for your customers perfectly.
