We can collect item specific information by asking a checkout question during a purchase on your Cart. For example, you can ask a dinner preference on a ticket purchase, or a size for a t-shirt.
First, you will need to create a user defined field to track this data inside your database. For additional help on creating this field, please see How to create a User Defined Field. These checkout questions can apply towards user defined fields with a field application of Transactions. Checkout questions for a specific item, will be asked during checkout only when that item is in the purchaser's shopping cart. If you would like to create a checkout question for an entire cart, not item specific, please see How to add a checkout question for your entire Cart.
