Hello Magento Friends,

Today, I will show the steps for How to Display a Prefix Field in Magento 2.

A prefix is added at the beginning of the name that describes a person’s marital status like Mr., Mrs., or Miss and academic qualification like Dr.

Knowing a person’s prefix, you can target customers based on their marital status or educational qualification depending on the type of business or products you sell.

You can add the Prefix field to different data forms to gather extra information from users of your Magento 2 store. Let’s look at the steps

  • Log in to the Admin Panel of your Magento 2 store.
