The “Easy Digital Downloads” plugin doesn’t display a company name field during checkout. The disadvantage of this is that you won’t see company information in the payment history. But also on invoices created by the “PDF Invoices” plugin you won’t see an company name. For many Easy Digital Downloads users this is less convenient.
With the paid “Checkout Fields Manager” plugin it’s quite easy to add additional fields to the checkout process. This plugin however doesn’t add extra fields automatically to PDF invoices or the payments export functionality. That’s why Pronamic developed the “Easy Digital Downloads – Company Name” plugin. This plugin adds a company name field to the checkout process and displays it on the WordPress admin payment details page.
If you export your payments to an CSV file the company name will added the an additional column. And if you’re using the “PDF Invoices” plugin the company name will also be added to the PDF invoice.
