When creating LearnPress and Eduma, we try to add everything to the product, so sometimes you may see unnecessary details like Shipping information in the course check out page. In this article, we will explore on how to remove all unnecessary information on the course check out page, how to add more fields according to your needs.
In order to do this, you will need to have the latest version of LearnPress installed and activated on your site, and also have LearnPress WooCommerce Add-on installed and activated on your site.
If you are using Eduma, Coaching or any other LMS WordPress Theme for LearnPress made by ThimPress, you can get LearnPress WooCommerce and other add-ons in the LearnPress Bundle by filling in this form here and follow the instructions.
1. Installing and Activating LearnPress WooCommerce
If you do not install and activate LearnPress WooCommerce Add-on, your course checkout page would be very primitive with only a few fields and payment method limited to Paypal only.
Default LearnPress payment – Only Paypal, very primitive
Once you have installed WooCommerce and integrate it with LearnPress, you can unlock many great features like using many different payment gateways, and all the features of WooCommerce like Coupons, statistics, etc.
Suppose that you have already downloaded LearnPress WooCommerce Add-on as instructed above, you can install it by going to your WordPress Admin > Plugins > Add New > Upload and choose the zip package of the add-on.
After that, you will need to replace default LearnPress payment method by LearnPress WooCommerce by going to LearnPress > Settings > Payments > WooCommerce Payment > Enable the option for WooCommerce Payment as in the image below.
2. Installing a Check Out Form Manager Plugin.
A checkout form manager plugin is a plugin that helps you manage the checkout form of WooCommerce by letting you to add, edit or remove form fields. This basically give you the power to do anything you want with the checkout page.
In this tutorial, I am using WooCommerce Checkout Field Editor (Manager) Pro as currently it has 30k active installs, it’s compatible with the latest version of WordPress and it has just been updated 1 weeks ago so it’s popular and it’s well maintained. There should be no problem.
Please go to your WordPress Admin > Plugins > Add New, search for WooCommerce Checkout Field Editor (Manager) Pro. Install and activate the plugin.
3. Start tweaking the Checkout page
Once you have installed the plugin, you can edit your Checkout form by going to WooCommerce > Checkout Form and choose which fields to disable, which to enable and which to be completely removed.
You can also edit form fields to add classes, add label classes, add a placeholder, make a field required or not and many other options.
In this example, for the ease of registration, I have disabled all other details but First name, Last name, and Email. Also, I made Last name not required so the checkout process is quite simple.
Here is the screenshot of the checkout page before and after editing.
Before – With tonnes of fields, shipping information
After – Only Name are required
Hopefully this can help you with your course page and gives you a higher conversion rate.
