In this tutorial, we are going to learn how we can customize and edit our WooCommerce checkout page.
There are many plugins available on WordPress to customize the checkout page of our WooComerece website. You can use any most of them offer similar features and have almost identical implementation methods.

From here you can edit every single field of your checkout form, you can add or delete fields and mark any field as required so the user must fill that field before checkout. You can also add validation for fields to verify that the user has put the write data into the field.
To add or remove filed you can tick the field and perform an action from the top or bottom of the list. You can also enable or disable a field if you wanna hide something for a temporary time.
To edit any field click the “Edit” button right next to the field. From there you can make several changes to your current field. You can add placeholders, rename labels, put default values, and so on.
