I need a checkout field before billing users in my forum, just like that of Woocommerce, How can this be done in phpBB?

Perhaps if you were to explain what a "checkout" field is we may be able to help, but I suspect that you will need an extension to do it.

A field in my membership page where users will enter their name, username and email before they can make payment!

What is a "membership" page - there is no such thing in phpBB.

Please when you ask for help on something can you give full details - every time you pose a question we have to drag the relevant information out of you and it is becoming tiresome.

Sorry, Lemme break it down.
I created a VIP section in my forum. I also created a VIP group. Now, I restricted Registered Users from accessing the VIP section as only VIP members (users in VIP group) can access that forum (which they have to pay for) then I will move them manually to the group.

I created a membership page (membership.php) where users who are willing to pay for the VIP section can see it features and pay for the membership. I will like to add a field in the membership page where users will enter their name, username and email before the can make payment for the membership plan.

Hope it is clear to you now?

And what do you propose doing with the data that is entered in these fields?

Yes, this was a question I have been asking myself, this shows you know what I want. I want their data to be saved!

Why do you want them to enter their username and email, which you are going to save, when that data is already in the database. As for their name that can be achieved by using a CPF

Since you're requesting AND storing Real Names, make sure your TOR reflects that (and what you do with the info (visibility, etc...).

The first golden rule of computing is that you do not store the same data more than once - it leads to confusion.

So next question - having stored this "personal" data what are you going to do with it.

I don't need to store their data any longer since I have them already. So what I need I just a field, where all users (name) & email will be shown as a drop-down, then they can select there's before the payment (checkout).

That does not make sense.

A member has logged into your site and wants to join your VIP area so they go to a page and on that page is a drop-down list of all members from which they can select one and the same for the email address which means that johndoe who has an email of johndoe@mysite.com could select marysmith with an email of fredjones@anothersite.com

What possible use can that be.

And you still have not told us what you are going to do with this data

This is a requirement the payment gateway requires me to provide on the payment page.
For the data, I think it should be sent to them or my email.

Hoping on you for this help, bro!

I seriously doubt that your payment processor requires this. It is such a major privacy issue.

you probably misunderstood what your payment processor is asking for.

maybe you should contact them and get that cleared up and then whatever it really is that you need we can help you figure it out.
