How to create an option for customers to upload files / text on Prestashop.

You may run a shop that offers personalised products whereby customers can upload photos of their own designs to be printed on products. In order to do this, it is ideal that customers can upload their files as they order. This is preferable to customers emailing files after purchase as it means that everything is 'in one place' and there is little room for confusion. With this feature, customers can also upload extra text. This would be useful if they want something engraving etc. If you read this guide below, we can help you create this nifty little field as an extra option for your customers.

Step 1 Log in to your Prestashop Admin

Log into your admin and navigate to the 'products' section under Catalog > Products. Once you have done this, click on the product that you would like to add the upload option to.

Click on Prestashop Product

Step 2

Next, click on the 'Customization' tab on the left hand side column.

Click customisation tab

Step 3: Add text or file field

On the customization page, there are two boxes (one next to file fields and one next to text fields). As default, these boxes have 0 in them. If you would like to add either a text or file field, both or multiples of each, add the appropriate number in the box.

After you have entered your desired numbers, click 'save and stay' in the top right hand corner of the page. After clicking 'save and stay', two boxes will appear asking for labels for the text and file fields. Fill them in as neccesary.

Define Labels

Step 4: Preview your product

Preview the changes you have made to the product by clicking 'preview' in the top right hand of the page.
