How to configure additional checkout fields?

FireCheckout includes the Checkout Fields module. It makes it possible to show additional fields on the checkout page. Your customers will be able to fill them thereby providing you with the additional information you might require.

The Checkout fields module includes a simple interface where you can customize additional fields according to your demands. First you have to go to Swissup - Checkout - Checkout Fields menu. Here you can add the new checkout fields as well as modify the existing ones.
