To make a required field not required in WooCommerce, you will need to modify the code in your website’s functions.php file or by using a plugin. Here are the steps:

  1. First, backup your website’s files and database in case anything goes wrong.
  2. Install and activate the Code Snippets plugin or similar.
  3. Go to “Snippets” in your WordPress dashboard and click “Add New”.
  4. Give your snippet a name, such as “Make a required field not required”.
  5. Copy and paste the following code into the “Code” section:
add_filter( 'woocommerce_checkout_fields' , 'remove_required_fields' );

function remove_required_fields( $fields ) {

    // Remove the required attribute for the field you want to make not required
    $fields['billing']['billing_email']['required'] = false;

    return $fields;
  1. Replace the field name with the name of the field you want to make not required. In this example, we are removing the “required” attribute for the “billing_email” field.
  2. Click “Save Changes and Activate” to save your snippet.

That’s it! The field you specified should no longer be marked as required during the checkout process. You can use this same code snippet to remove the required attribute from other fields as well.
