I am trying to figure out the best way to use eStore/eMember. I sell custom family tree wall-hangings on my site.
As part of the order process, a person needs to fill out their family information – mother, father, children, grandparents with birth dates.
This requires more input fields than the one available in “Collect Customer Input” area.
How can I set up a custom form for them to fill out, hopefully that will integrate with the database? They do not need to be members of my site to order.
Thank you for your help!September 20, 2014 at 1:29 am #65563wpCommerceModerator
If you are processing a order using manual checkout you can install this addon to customize the form fields (eMember not required): https://www.tipsandtricks-hq.com/ecommerce/wp-estore-manual-checkout-form-builder-addon-3119
Alternatively, you can set up your registration process so users will have to sign up before they can purchase (Scenario 3.1, eMember required). This way you can collect all those custom data as part of the user registration:
So your checkout scenario will be like the following:
1) Customer adds item to the cart.
2) Clicks the checkout button.
3) They are sent to a page where it tells them to log in or create a new user account. Creating a user account is free.
4) When they fill in the form, they can submit all those custom info that you need from them.
5) The customer logs in and completes the checkout.
6) You (the site admin) will have all the necessary data in the admin back-end.October 1, 2014 at 5:29 pm #65564crevinamdMember
Hello, The eMember custom data registration is close to what I’m looking for but not a very smooth checkout process in the supplied video. Is there any way to collect custom data before the purchase process starts rather than clicking the “paypal checkout” button twice? Can you require registration (on a registration page) before you even get to the page with sale items? Just curious if there is more functionality before I purchase eMemeber and how to go about implementing that. Thanks, kevinOctober 2, 2014 at 12:19 am #65565adminKeymaster
Yeah, you can require the user to have an account before they can purchase anything. Check the 2nd or the 3rd scenario from the following page for explanation:February 18, 2015 at 2:54 pm #65566kescardosoMember
Hi do you have an appointment plugin that integrates with wp estore? I need to set up a calendar that displays available appointment times, and once client selects a date s/he can pay for the session though wpestore with currency converter add on (already installed). Do you have anything like that?February 22, 2015 at 3:31 pm #65567wzpModerator
@kescardoso — We currently have no appointment scheduling plugin integration. If you’d like, you can request a custom work order quote, and someone will get back to you; regarding the “doability” of your request:
