How to add custom customer attributes / fields in nopCommerce

Categories: nopCommerce

There are times when some nopCommerce store admins finds themselves in a situation when the default registration form fields are not enough for their needs (if they would like to manage more information of the customers). In reality, it can be a very difficult task for a non-technical store admin to dive into the code and make the required modifications (in code and the database) for adding custom fields.
