Woo Additional Terms


This plugin will be most helpful for e-Commerce stores in Europe as many countries in the union require the cancellation or GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) policy to be displayed as a separate checkbox and agree by the customer before placing the order.

Linking an optional page to the additional term’s notice will allow you to present customers with Additional Terms and Conditions to accept during checkout. “Terms” open up on the page when the link is clicked, and customers can review without leaving checkout. As an example, you may want to include a cancellation policy and ask customers to agree to it before placing the order.

If the checkbox is not checked and the customer attempts to place an order, an alert box will be shown that prevents them from moving forward.

The plugin setup is minimal and requires no knowledge of HTML or CSS. It could not be simpler.


“Additional Terms” plugin has a premium version which comes with several extra benefits:

  • Display terms in a modal
  • (Not) Skippable checkboxes
  • Unlimited T&C checkboxes
  • Unlimited ToS page links
  • Smart conditional logic
  • Detailed acceptance summary

Smart logic conditions will allow you to define restrictions based on several complex rules, such as products in the cart, which categories, tags, shipping classes, etc., cart items belong.

Automatic installation

Automatic installation is the easiest option — WordPress will handle the file transfer, and you won’t need to leave your web browser. To do an automatic install of the plugin, log in to your WordPress dashboard, navigate to the Plugins menu, and click “Add New.”

In the search field type “Woo Additional Terms”, then click “Search Plugins.” Once you’ve found the plugin, you can view details about it such as the point release, rating, and description. Click “Install Now,” and WordPress will take it from there.

Manual installation

The manual installation method requires downloading the plugin and uploading it to your webserver via your favorite FTP application. The WordPress codex contains instructions on how to do this here.


Automatic updates should work smoothly, but we still recommend you back up your site.

Easy to use, even for a know-nothing like me! Perfect for my needs, no hesitation in recommending this.

The plugin has everything I needed. So simple that I did not have to use any instructions in adding the terms checkbox on my own.

Unfortunately this does not seem to work. Tried with WooCommerce v3.4.2 (WP v4.9.6) and no new settings appear. Also tried code fix on line 18 as suggested by another user but that did not do anything.
