Product Input Fields for WooCommerce

Overview #

Display custom fields on the product page, allowing your customer to fully customize their order on your WooCommerce-powered store.

With the WooCommerce Product Input Fields feature enabled, your customers can give you more information before they add an item to their cart so that they always get exactly what they want, whether it’s gift wrapping, different sizes or the quantity of the product. For example, adding a custom message for gift-wrapped orders. As the admin, you can add a placeholder message to give your customers an example of what to type or to prompt them to provide more info (i.e. “Please enter more details” or “Please ensure that you have filled out all fields”).

Add custom input fields globally (all WooCommerce products at once) or on a per-product basis.

Each field can be customized with the following settings:

  • Type: Text, Textarea, Number, Checkbox, File, Datepicker, Weekpicker, Timepicker, Select, Radio, Password, Country, Email, and Phone
  • Checkbox type only: text value for ON
  • Checkbox type only: text value for OFF
  • Checkbox type only: default value (checked or not checked)
  • File type only: accepted file types
  • File type only: max file size
  • Datepicker and weekpicker types only: date format
  • Datepicker and weekpicker types only: min date
  • Datepicker and weekpicker types only: max date
  • Datepicker and weekpicker types only: year selector
  • Datepicker and weekpicker types only: year range (if year selector is enabled)
  • Datepicker and weekpicker types only: first week day (Sunday, Monday, Tuesday etc.)
  • Timepicker type only: time format
  • Timepicker type only: interval (in minutes)
  • Select and radio types only: selectable options list
  • Is required
