See Also: Profile module on Drupal.org
The Profile module provides the profile entity type used to collect customer information. In Commerce 1.x, we called these entities “Customer Profiles” and for Commerce 2.x we have moved to where the community has extended user profiles to include fieldable entity bundles.
The fieldable Profile entity allows administrators to define different sets of fields for user profiles, which are then displayed in the My Account section. This permits users of a site to share more information about themselves and can help community-based sites organize users around specific information.
