The checkout page on an eCommerce website is the page that handles payment/shipping information to complete a transaction. It typically includes various form fields to collect user information such as billing address, shipping address, payment method, and so on.

The default WooCommerce checkout template has two form fields, one for billing and one for shipping and payment information. All of this is basic information that is required to proceed with delivery. However, if your customer wants to add some personalization to their order, for instance, if they want to send it as a gift to another person and want a note added, they can do so. What makes them do that?

WooCommerce Extra Checkout Fields plugin is the best way to make your checkout page more user-friendly. With this plugin, you can edit/manage default checkout fields, and create new custom fields on your checkout page.
