looks like the issue was due to the fact your attributes are not assigned to the customer attribute set.

the following code is needed in your install: I added full code for you at https://bitbucket.org/magstaging/newcustomerattribute

$eavSetup->addAttributeToSet(
            CustomerMetadataInterface::ENTITY_TYPE_CUSTOMER,
            CustomerMetadataInterface::ATTRIBUTE_SET_ID_CUSTOMER,
            null,
            $attributeCode);

When adding new attribute in the database, you have to flush cache storage before data get persistently saved.

--> although you attributes are created, the cache is what triggers the data to be saved afterwards.

--> if data is still not saved, I'd look at php error log first

  • i have flushed all cache. attributes are display in magento database like "eav_attribute" table and after save data in "customer_entity_varchar" table data not save here. Jun 15, 2018 at 10:18
