What is the correct way to add extra fields to the checkout page (and have them show up in the Admin)

I have to add “Order Comments” and consecutively, some other 11 fields to the checkout, so what is the correct way to do it? Or any way? I have read somethings about installing certain modules, but I would want to be update proof and I need some guidance from the Mageicians…

Thanks for your time!

Andre

Hi Andre,

Please consider our Checkout Fields Manager extension.

The best way is to use a pre-made magento extension to achieve this. Have a look at the Additional Checkout Attributes magento module

You can easily add new fields to the checkout form and then use them in the admin area with Order Attributes extension.
