    Prestashop Product Custom Field

    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:

    1. Text
    2. Text Area
    3. Dropdown
    4. Checkbox
    5. File Type
    6. Radio Button and
    7. TinyMCE

    Text Field

    • 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.

    Dropdown Field

    Checkbox Field

    File Type Field

    Radio Button Field

    TinyMCE 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.

    Front End View

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

    This was all about Prestashop Product Custom Field 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.

    I have two queries about this module

    1. will it work in 1.7 version ?
    2. If i add dropdown field can i append dynamic options in that dropdown from another sections ? like i want to add Select Author dropdown in Add/Edit product form but don’t want to add static options so i have another Authors module where i am adding authors so just want to fetch those authors and add into dropdown options.
    Please advice

      Thanks for showing interest in our product

      Yes, the module is compatible with both Prestashop 1.6.x.x and Prestashop 1.7.x.x.

      For adding authors you are using a third-party module, while it is not possible to fetch the value from a third-party module. You need to add the Drop Down options from the “Manage Custom Fields” page.

      If you have any query then please raise a ticket at our support ticket system or you can mail us at

      Thanks & Regards

        Thanks For Reply

        OK but we can customize the module to fetch the dropdown options from other 3rd party module right ?

        I am Prestashop developer

          Well, if you made any third party changes with the module, then it will void the module support. 

          Further, I would recommend you let us know if you require any additional features/modifications with the module. 

          For that purpose, please raise a ticket at our support ticket system or you can mail us at

          Thanks & Regards
