Do you sell digital goods? For sure you'd like to set the WooCommerce checkout for digital goods then. You only need a customer's name and e-mail address, nothing more. There is a simple method to configure the checkout as you need it. I'll show you how to make it.
WooCommerce Checkout for Digital Goods in 5 Minutes
What we want to achieve
The configuration we want to achieve is to have only:
- First name
- and Last name
on the checkout page.
We will use the free Flexible Checkout Fields plugin.
This plugin lets you configure WooCommerce checkout for digital goods - like the one above.
By default, there is also the Ship to different address section.
WooCommerce hides by default when there are no physical products in the cart. Only the virtual ones.
You can configure the Virtual type while editing a product.
Probably you set Downloadable in there, too.
So we need Flexible Checkout Fields to hide shipping address fields of the Billing section.
Once you install the plugin, go to WooCommerce → Checkout Fields. Then unmark Enable Field checkboxes on each field you want to hide:
So you need to disable all the fields except the First name and Last name. Of course, you can configure it in any other way. This plugin is very flexible (as you see by the name :) ).
That's all! You have configured WooCommerce checkout for digital goods.
