Adding an extra field for "Birthday"

Payolution requires all customers to enter their birthdays when using this payment. To collect this information, we are providing two options here. Please pick an option that works best for your shop, and ask your Shopgate support expert to add an extra field for entering customer's birthday with the following settings:

Option 1: Adding a birthday field at checkout

This option will show a field at checkout for your customers to enter the birthday. Only those who use payolution are required to enter their birthday. Anyone else can choose whether they want to enter this info or not.

Please ask your Shopgate support expert to add an extra field for entering a customer's birthday with the following settings:

Label Birthday
Internal Field Name birthday
Form Element Type Date
Validationrules(JSON) {"formattedDate":{"rule":["userDefined","CustomValidation","formattedDate"],"allowEmpty":true}}
Belongs to User


Option 2: Adding a mandatory birthday field to the registration form

This will require ALL of your customers to enter a birthday at registration.

Please ask your Shopgate support expert to check the option "Show mandatory birthday field", but no extra field needs to be added.


Payolution is now successfully set up as your payment service provider.
