Checkout Fields Manager


Checkout Fields Manager allows store owners to modify the checkout page and add different types of extra fields. These fields enable store owners to collect customer information and gain valuable insights. Information gathered from custom checkout fields can be further analysed and used as a foundation for new email campaigns, updates of pricing and shipping policies, customer segmentation and product positioning, and many others.

Checkout Attributes

Go to Admin → AITOC → Aitoc → Checkout Fields Manager → Checkout to create a new Attribute or edit an existing one. Alternatively, the page can also be found in STORES → ATTRIBUTES → CHECKOUT.

The “Properties” tab

Admin → AITOC → Aitoc → Checkout Fields Manager → Checkout → Edit “Gift Wrap”


Once you fill out all the necessary fields in the Properties tab, go to Manage Label/ Options to add a title and a description for your new field.

Specify at which checkout step your custom attribute should be displayed.


In the Websites / Store Views tab, you can select what store to display the attribute.

Configuring the extension's General Settings

Admin → AITOC → Aitoc → Checkout Fields Manager → Configuration


The respective settings below enable the Admin to restrict cart editing at checkout within the sidebar and disable cart for customers to proceed to checkout instantly.

Email Template changes

To display the created checkout attributes on the order email template, you must change the email template configuration. Otherwise, the created checkout attributes won't appear in the email template.

Change the existing used Email Template.

The module, by default, provides its email template, which you can use, and the created checkout attributes will appear in the order email.

Path: Admin > Stores > Configuration > Sales > Sales Email. For Order emails, you need to change the existing email template and use the "New Order with CFM" template with the module.

Add a variable in your existing email template to display checkout attributes.

Suppose you use a custom email template (not the default) and want to display the created checkout attributes in that email template. In that case, you will need to add the following code to your existing email template.

{{layout handle="cfm_email_order_additional_fields" order_id=$order_id area="frontend"}}

By adding this code, your existing email template will show the checkout attribute and its value.

Checkout - Payment Info view


The default Magento feature "Check Out with Multiple Addresses" is not supported by this module.

Custom checkout fields in Order of details


Your customers can see the extra fields they filled out in their Magento account (registered users only) and email.


The custom data a client provides is visible to the Admin in the Order/Invoice form. Click “Edit” to edit this data.

Magento API Support

One can export the data provided by customers using Magento API. Retrieving data by SOAP is done via OAuth. An administrator must generate a key in the console (SSH). Please find below an example of how to get a key:

Command syntax:

curl -X POST "http://magentohost/index.php/rest/V1/integration/admin/token" -H "Content- Type:application/json" -d '{"username":"user", "password":"password"}'

The result of the command above is a set of symbols, which represents the key. One should use it to initialize the variation $key as in the example below.
