You may want to send something to them later, or use it just for gathering customer data. In a case like this, weForms has you covered. Our WordPress contact form plugin has a pre-built custom Address Field which can be easily tailored to your needs. From street address to city or zip code, every detail can be collected by you to fit your needs.

The following article will outline how that can be leveraged for your marketing needs and walk you through using the weForms drag and drop contact form builder to achieve exactly what you need for lead capture, the first time.

The Address field type lets you easily insert an address collection section in your form where site visitors can input their Address. It is divided into six sections by default:

  • Address Line 1
  • Address Line 2

  • Country

To add the address field type to your form,  you need to click on the Address Field from Custom Fields section or simply drag and drop it on the builder.

Address Field Options

The Address Field has multiple Field Options, such as:

  • Field Label: This gives you the option to change the name of the field. You can set it to what you want
  • Meta Key: A meta key will be auto-generated but you have the option to change it.
  • Help Text: This will show text in the field to make the user more aware of what information to give.
  • Required: This gives you the option to make the field required or not for submission
