If Customer's Tax number (in this article we will simply use VAT number) is required, you will need to show them on the invoices.
By default, Shopify does not allow adding additional fields on checkout, but you could try this alternative solution:
When customers sign-up for an account on your store, you can ask them to write down the VAT number, by simply adding a field to this page. The information is automatically stored in Customer Note, which will then be displayed on our Easy PDF Invoice app.
Here are the steps to do so:
- In your Shopify admin, go to the Online Store → Themes page.
- Click the Actions button, then click Edit code.
- Select customers/register.liquid file in the left sidebar. You can also use the upper search bar for a faster search.
- Insert the following code snippet inside the <form>. We do recommend inserting the code just before the Email field.
<label for="company_no">VAT Number</label>
<input id="company_no" type="text" name="customer[note][VAT Number]" placeholder="VAT Number" />
If you need other information, simply replace VAT Number with it.
Here is how it should look on the Shopify Admin:
And this is how it looks at the Customer Registration page:

In our app, simply enable the Customer note option:
