Hence, in order to make the work easier, we have provided these fields where you can add selectors for various fields & buttons by yourself. In case, if you face any difficulty while adding selectors, please raise a ticket here. We would be more than happy to assist you.
Add customization fields
In order to let your customer, add customizations to the product, you will need to add the fields for it. For this, Prestashop basically offers you to add two types of fields. The first one is the text field & the other one is the file field.
So, just to make it clearer, I’ll explain what each of these fields is for?
Text field allows your customer to add custom text messages/information that he/she wants to convey to you. Apart from this, it can also be the text that he wants to add/print on the product.
The file field allows your customer to add the following file types for customization information.
Now, let’s just see how can you add these fields to a product. To add the customization field to a product, firstly go to the edit product page at the backend.
After that, go to the ‘Options’ section. Here, in this section, you will find a part of ‘Customization‘. Please refer to the screenshot below. Under this part, you can add multiple customization fields. Also, set their file type(text/file) & whether they will be mandatory field or not.
Now, after saving the above settings, your customers can view the customization fields on the product page. So, this was all about the process to add a customization field on the product page.
Product Page View
Earlier, the customers would need to upload the customization information & click on the ‘save customization’ button. This process is used to save the customization information only. And after this, a customer must click on the “add to cart” button to add the product to the cart along with customization.
Now, after the integration of this module, customers would no longer need to save the customization first. Info regarding this displays on the product page too. (Refer to the screenshot below)
Add the product customization directly into the cart
In order to add the customization to the product, upload the text & images in the relevant fields. After that, simply click on the ‘add to cart button. No need to save them first. All thanks to this module.
Now, the product will be added to the cart along with the customization.
A customer may view the files added by him/her by clicking on the button available on the cart page.
Afterward, the customer can edit the customization data on the cart page as well as shown in the below screenshot.
Finally, the edit text is updated in the cart.
Checkout with product customization
To place the order, select a payment method of your choice to proceed.
Order Confirmation Page
Customers would also be able to view customization information even on this page. Just click on the ‘Product customization‘ button available below the product name to view the files.
Admin order details page
The customization information is available at the admin end too.
So, this was all about the process to checkout with the customization.
Hide the customization button & disable customization fields
In the earlier sections, I already explained the significance of the options available in configuration settings. So, let’s just not get into that again. Rather, let’s just see what happens when we hide the ‘Save Customization‘ button & disable ‘Customization Fields‘.
Following is the view of the page, when both options of configuration settings are set to “Yes“. As you may notice that there is no save customization button & fields are disabled too.
So, this was all about the Module. I hope this document will help you in checking the functionality of the module in a better way. Also, do let us know about your views in the comments.
