Fields created in the Users -> Profile Fields section of your Website Toolbox account have their own unique extension (or field name), which can be determined by viewing the HTML source code of the registration page.

Note that the query string values must be URL-encoded.

If you need to update a user's information once their account has already been created, please use our API.
