Unfortunately there is no phone number field in the shipping address of WooCommerce. Weird, because in many countries a phone number is required by shipping countries. Besides the dropshipping suppliers vidaXL and BigBuy, also require a phone number in the shipping address. In this article we’re going to explain how to add the phone number to the checkout of the shipping address. If you’re not a developer yourself, please forward this article to your developer instead.

Add snippet to functions.php

To add the field to the checkout of the shipping address you will need to add the code below to your functions.php file.

/** Add Shipping Phone to WooCommerce Checkout **/
add_filter( 'woocommerce_checkout_fields', 'woosa_shipping_phone_checkout' );
function woosa_shipping_phone_checkout( $fields ) {
   $fields['shipping']['shipping_phone'] = array(
      'label' => 'Phone',
      'type' => 'tel',
      'required' => false,
      'class' => array( 'form-row-wide' ),
      'validate' => array( 'phone' ),
      'autocomplete' => 'tel',
      'priority' => 25,
   return $fields;
add_action( 'woocommerce_admin_order_data_after_shipping_address', 'woosa_shipping_phone_checkout_display' );
function woosa_shipping_phone_checkout_display( $order ){
    echo '<p><b>Shipping Phone:</b> ' . get_post_meta( $order->get_id(), '_shipping_phone', true ) . '</p>';
