  • Show field for selected user roles only: Control which user roles (e.g., guest, customer) see the VAT field at checkout.

Display Options

  • Display: Choose where to display the VAT field on your checkout page:
  • After order table: Place it below the order summary table.
  • In billing address: Integrate it within the billing address section.

Hide EU VAT field from the checkout

By effectively utilizing these comprehensive EU VAT options within your Pro WooCommerce plugin, you can ensure a smooth VAT compliance experience for both your business and your customers throughout the EU.
