Support » Plugin: WooCommerce » Change order of billing fields on checkout page

  • Resolved zerge


    I’m using the WC filter to order billing fields, and it worked fine before (WC 3.0.3) updating to WooCommerce 3.0.4

    It seems the filter works fine, but for unknown reasons it revert back on the fly to the default order.

    add_filter("woocommerce_checkout_fields", "custom_order_fields");
    function custom_order_fields($fields) {
    	$order = array(
    	foreach($order as $field)
    		$ordered_fields[$field] = $fields["billing"][$field];
    	$fields["billing"] = $ordered_fields;
    	$fields['billing']['billing_address_1']['placeholder'] = '';
    	$fields['billing']['billing_address_2']['placeholder'] = '';
    	$fields['billing']['billing_phone']['placeholder'] = '';
    	$fields['billing']['billing_address_2']['label'] = __( 'City', 'blank' );
    	$fields['billing']['billing_phone']['label'] = __( 'Phone number', 'blank' );
    	return $fields;

    WooCommerce 3.0.4 + code above in the functions.php

  • Just found out I made a booboo. Use uasort instead of usort to keep the associative array.

    So many different answers! I tried many of them. They didn’t work. Here’s what did, and I simply used the examples at to make them work:

    I wanted to move the email field to the top, and place the phone number field below the name (first name, last name). I also wanted to remove the COMPANY field. Here’s a quick tip: The DEFAULT setup assigns a value to each field. So… FIRST NAME = 10, LAST NAME = 20, and so on. Got it? Good. So if you want to make something appear before the FIRST NAME field, assign it a smaller value.

    Here’s the code I used to effect what I wanted:

    add_filter( 'woocommerce_checkout_fields' , 'custom_override_checkout_fields' );
    function custom_override_checkout_fields( $fields ) {
         $fields['billing']['billing_email']['priority'] = 9;
         $fields['billing']['billing_phone']['priority'] = 21;
    // Remove company field //
         return $fields;

    Simple. Effective. No loops required.

    You need uasort function to keep array key association.
    This filter force the reorder of the billing fields.

     * Force reorder billing fields by priority
     * @param $fields
     * @return mixed
    function reorder_fields($fields) {
    	uasort($fields['billing'], function($a, $b) {
    		return $a['priority'] <=> $b['priority'];
    	return $fields;
    add_filter( 'woocommerce_checkout_fields', 'reorder_fields', 999, 1 );
