Vendors can now create required or optional custom fields for the cart complete with field type (text, checkbox, select, radio, textarea), label, and description.
To see an example of custom fields, add the DPD demo product below:
The contents of custom fields are displayed with the purchase record in the DPD admin. We’ll soon be adding the ability to populate custom fields with input from your website, and send the custom fields via the DPD IPN system to your own scripts and programs.
Just like everything else in DPD, creating a custom field is easy with no coding required. Simply go to Custom Fields in the left menu for the store you’d like to add the fields to checkout, click the “Add New Custom Field” button, and fill out the form:
Other Tweaks and Fixes in this update:
- Added a subscription signup complete email with their username and login URL
- Optimized purchase csv export to prevent an out of memory condition for very large exports
- Fixed an error that sometimes occurred on cart/remove action
- Updated the way tax and discounts are calculated to comply with GST/PST/VAT requirements
