The one thing that has the potential to attract customers is enough information on the product page. Hence, a merchant should always aim to provide sufficient information about the product on the product page. Thus, Prestashop product custom field becomes an inevitable tool for the merchants to provide as much information as they want on their product page.
Let’s understand how inadequate information could arise problems. Suppose, a customer wants to buy a bed from your shop. He lands on the product page of a bed after crawling through the website up and down. On the product page, he finds that there is no info about its dimension, material, installation on delivery, etc. This might result in customers leaving the website without placing the order. And, you can not even assess the loss incurring from such instances.
Most customers who prefer to buy products online like to go through the product details before placing the order. Hence, it becomes even more important for a merchant to outline the product details clearly.
Add multiple custom fields on the product page: text, text area, checkbox, file type, radio button, dropdown, and TinyMCE.
Set text, email, or number to validate the fields(text and text area).
Add custom fields(text and text area) in multi-language.
Enable/disable or edit/delete the custom fields.
Admin can set the character limit within which an admin can enter the text in the field.
Add various types of image and document files to provide extra information.
How to install the Product Custom Field
Firstly, Go to Module Manager in Back office and click on ‘upload a module’.
Now, Drag and drop the module file or select the file from the system.
In this way, the module installation will be successful.
Workflow – Product Custom Field
After installation of the module, a new tab “Manage custom field” gets added under “Catalog” from where admin can add and manage product custom fields.
Types of Custom Fields
Admin can add seven types of custom fields to a product page. These are:
Radio Button and
Validation Type – Admin can set text, email, or number to validate the custom field.
Attribute Name – In this field, admin can set a unique identity for the custom field.
Once admin has added a custom field then he cannot change the custom field type.
Text Area Field
Adding text area field is very similar to adding text field. While adding text area field, admin does not have to set the validation type.
File Type Field
Radio Button Field
After saving custom fields, admin can view all the custom fields he has added under “Manage Custom Field” tab. Admin can:
View label name and default value of custom field.
Edit/Delete the custom field, and
Enable/Disable the custom field.
After adding the custom fields, admin can view these fields on the “Edit product” page and set the values which will be displayed to users on the product page at front end.

When a user visits the product page on the store he can view custom fields and the values added by admin under “Additional Information”.
