It would be great if there's an option or add-on facility that could allow merchants to add/edit/delete customer info form fields at checkout and specify which additional fields are mandatory. For example, for customers in the hotel/service industry, merchants could add say the Passport No. / male or female / Ms or Mr or Mrs or Dr or Prof / no. of accompanying persons sharing the room / company registration no. / Fax no. / Website URL / Designation / etc. etc.

The default database could have much more unused optional fields (say 50) so that the add-on application could use those blank optional fields to store those additional customer info.

In this way, VPASP would no longer be restricted to just suit the retail industry but also suitable for the service industry as well that do not require so much info on shipping details but on the customer's background to better service the client.

Dear Patrick,

VP-ASP can already do this. You can add fields to your database and then reference these in the online config so without having to do any coding you can have the new fields display in the customers page and als be added to the orders table.

For more information on this powerful feature please see section 12.5 of the VPASP 550 developers guide.

Thank you
Cam Flanigan
