What are Custom Register Fields?

Custom Register Fields are the additional fields that provide descriptive metadata. Metadata helps you discover, identify and describe your customers. Customer metadata can help you to analyze your customer base, truly understand their feelings about your product or service, and help gauge the effectiveness of your overall message.


Custom Register Fields

Custom Register Fields are located under the Branding section of your account, as presented below and once you access it you will be prompted with the Custom Fields section.

Custom fields allow you to add additional fields which will be displayed in the paywall preview. To do that click on the   button and a pop-up window will appear, asking for configuration of the Fields details.


Types of the Custom Fields

There are 5 different elements, each representing the type of the custom field that the Merchant needs.

Input

Once the input element is selected there are three additional buttons that would complete the Input Custom Field

  • Name of the Input element is used as a value in the database
  • Placeholder represents the hint to the user what can be entered in the Input element
  • Default Value defines the default value of the Input element

Example: If the Input element requires from customer Birthdate, then in Database will be written Birthdate and the customers will enter the birthdate in the specified format (DD: MM: YYYY).

Paywall Preview will add the Input element as the image below:

Drop-down

Once the drop-down element is selected there are three additional buttons that would complete the Dropdown Custom Field

  • Name of the Dropdown element is used as a value in the database
  • Placeholder is the hint to the customer for what can be chosen from the Dropdown element
  • Select Options offers the list from which the customers will choose and is defined by two parameters
    • Enter Option Key – Option Key is the parameter that will be written in the database and is automatically written once the option label is entered
    • Enter Option Label – Option Label is the parameter offered to the Customer to choose from

*Note: When the last drop-down option is specified, please add another blank one, in order to keep the last Option saved and offered to customers.

Example: If the Dropdown element requires from customers to select the Age range, then in the Database will be written Age range and the customers should select the age range from the drop-down menu.

Radio

Once the radio element is selected there are two additional buttons that would complete the Radio Custom Field. A radio button is an icon representing one of a set of options, only one of which can be selected at any time.

  • Label represents a caption for the radio element in the customer interface
  • Radio Options represents the two separate fields that create the Radio Element
    • Enter Option Key – Option key is used as a value in the database. Changing this will create a new option and delete the old one
    • Enter Option Label – Option Label is the Text displayed for the end-user

*Note: When the last radio option is specified, please add another blank one, in order to keep the last Option saved and offered to customers.

Example: If the Radio element requires from customers to select Gender, then in Database will be written Gender and the customers should select one of the offered options.
