The customer’s date of birth is recorded, so that transactions can be audited for compliance with minimum age legislation. The customer’s date of birth is transmitted in order confirmation and notification emails. This information is not shared with any other parties.
How can I set the minimum age?
The default minimum age is 18. You can change it the WooCommerce settings:
WooCommerce > Settings > Minimum Age > Minimum age
How can I change the order of the date fields?
The default order of the birth date fields is day, month, year. You can choose a different layout in the settings:
WooCommerce > Settings > Minimum Age > Date layout
Can I show the date of birth question conditionally?
There is a filter hook
minimum_age_woo_show_questionthat allows developers to hide the date of birth question if it isn’t required, e.g. only show for products in certain categories. It accepts a single boolean parameter, and returns a boolean: true to show the question, otherwise false.
