Customer Attribute Magento 2 extension:
This is the most convenient option that facilitates users to add the attributes during the registration on the site. This way, the store manager is able to collect important customer information data by collecting the filled attributes on the page.
This attribute is a boon because the default registration page doesn’t allow the collection of various other attribute information other than first name, last name, and email address. However, this basic information doesn’t allow store owners to create a personalized experience for the user journey. The admin is allowed to add various attributes in the registration form, and these fields are visible on the grid.
Again, the final authority of creating and deleting the attribute lies in the hands of admin only. They can enable or disable the customer attribute option on the registration form.
Hence, this extension satisfies the store owner’s needs of collecting extra information and in the end, benefits the customer in getting customized shopping experience.
