  1. Why would you only save the last name to billing last name? Shouldn’t it be added to the native last name field as well?

    Here is how to have the new “lastname” field be saved in both places…

    add_action( 'woocommerce_created_customer', 'bbloomer_save_name_fields' );
    function bbloomer_save_name_fields( $customer_id ) {   
        if ( isset( $_POST['lastname'] ) ) {
            update_user_meta( $customer_id, 'billing_last_name', sanitize_text_field( $_POST['lastname'] ) );
            update_user_meta( $customer_id, 'last_name', sanitize_text_field($_POST['lastname']) );
    1. Yes, you’re correct!
