To validate the data in the fields you have to put the following code in functions.php:

This code snippet will check the $_POST array for the data and return an error message in case the data not found or the validation process failed.

function WooCommerce_form_validatoin_fields( $username, $email, $validation_errors ) {
if ( isset( $_POST['registration_name'] ) && empty( $_POST['registration_name'] ) ) {
$validation_errors->add( 'registration_name_error', __( 'Error: Name is required!', 'woocommerce' ) );
return $validation_errors;
add_action( 'woocommerce_register_post', 'WooCommerce_form_validatoin_fields' );

Now check if the values have been collected and validated then the next step will be to save the values in the database. Add the following code in functions.php file.

function WooCommerce_form_save_register_fields( $customer_id ) {
if ( isset( $_POST['registration_name'] ) ) {
update_user_meta( $customer_id, 'registration_name', sanitize_text_field( $_POST['registration_name'] ) );
update_user_meta( $customer_id, 'registration_name', sanitize_text_field( $_POST['registration_name'] ) );
add_action( 'woocommerce_created_customer', 'WooCommerce_form_save_register_fields' );

WooCommerce Edit My Account Page – An Alternative Method to Add WooCommerce Form

If you want to add WooCommerce registration form using an alternative method then you can use WooCommerce hooks to edit WooCommerce my account page.

Add the following code to implement the process for adding a WooCommerce registration form.

function woocommerce_edit_my_account_page() {
    return apply_filters( 'woocommerce_forms_field', array(
        'woocommerce_my_account_page' => array(
            'type'        => 'text',
            'label'       => __( 'Social Media Profile Link', ' WPITECH' ),
            'placeholder' => __( 'Profile Link', 'WPITECH' ),
            'required'    => false,
    ) );
function edit_my_account_page_woocommerce() {
    $fields = woocommerce_edit_my_account_page();
    foreach ( $fields as $key => $field_args ) {
        woocommerce_form_field( $key, $field_args );
add_action( 'woocommerce_register_form', 'edit_my_account_page_woocommerce', 15 );

Here you will see the preview:


The above code starts with the woocommerce_edit_my_account_page() that is used in the next part of the snippet. This woocommerce_edit_my_account_page() function returns a multidimensional array that contains all the information about the form fields such as type, label, placeholder, etc that you are adding to the WooCommerce form.

To make sure that the fields value updated, later on, the array process further through the woocommerce_form_field() function.

The $fields variable consist the array that is generated by the woocommerce_edit_my_account_page() function. This is looped using the foreach() loop.

How to Add Your Required WooCommerce Form Field

The above mentioned alternative method is flexible and you can also add any field type by providing the proper field structure values in the $fields array.

Here I will show you some examples:


'woocommerce_my_account_page_checkbox'   => array(
           'type'  => 'checkbox',
           'label' => __( 'Checkbox', 'WPITECH' ),


'woocommerce_my_account_page' => array(
         'type'        => 'textarea',
         'label'       => __( 'Social Media Profile Link', 'WPITECH' ),
         'placeholder' => __( 'Profile Link', 'WPITECH' ),
         'required'    => false,

Option list

           'type'    => 'select',
           'label'   => __( 'Select Field', 'WPITECH' ),
           'options' => array(
               '' => __( 'Select an options.', 'WPITECH' ),
               1  => __( 'WooCommerce forms', 'WPITECH' ),
               2  => __( 'WooCommerce  my account page', 'WPITECH' ),
               3  => __( 'WooCommerce edit my account page', 'WPITECH' ),
