How to Create a Custom Product Form (with Pro)?
All the procedures are the same as in the free version. But, you can explore all the features with the pro.
Now, visit the product form we created earlier with the basic version (you can build a new product form). You can see all 16 types of custom product fields displayed on the fields sections of the page.
Allow your customers to select more than one option. Just enable the multiple selection checkbox.
Let’s look at the product page.
On that page,
Windows Users: Hold the Ctrl button and select multiple options you want.
Mac Users: Hold the Command button and select multiple options you want.
Set Price Option
The set price option is available only in Select, Checkbox, and Radio Group custom product fields. We can see the changes on the Cart page.
Here, I choose the Select option to show you some examples.
The set price option has two choices:
- In Price
- In Percentage
1. In Price:
It specifies the value based on the options selected & price rate of the product.
On the Backend Page, set the price values for the respective colors. And select the Fixed Price option on the Set Price field.
Note: You can change the Currency in the Settings.
On the Product Page, select the Blue color.
On the Cart Page, you can see the price value was increased based on the given value.
Price of T-shirt ($18) + Price of Blue color ($3) = Total price ($21).
2. In Percentage:
It specifies the value based on the options selected & price rate of the product in percent.
On the Backend Page, set the percentage values for the respective colors. And select the Percentage option on the Set Price field.
On the Product Page, select the Red color.
On the Cart Page, you can see the price value was increased based on the given value.
Price of T-shirt ($18) + Percentage (5%) of Red color ($0.90) = Total price ($18.90).
The dynamic field feature helps you to show product fields only if the customers select the respective option.
We created a form with the Name, Delivery to, Home Address, and Office Address fields. Enter the suitable placeholders to display what value should enter.
After that, scroll down the page to configure the created product form.
In the Form Configuration section, enter the Rule Name, and Choose the product field you want to set the rule. Select the Action to Show or Hide that field, and apply When or Initially to move further.
Set the Target Field, Condition, and the Value. Click the Add Rule button to add another rule. After setting up all the rules you want, click the Update button to save the changes.
Note: Don’t forget to select the created product form on the Products page.
Visit the product page and perform some actions to see the changes.
Here, I clicked the Home delivery, and the Home Address field displays based on the rules provided.
File Upload & Help Text
Now, we add the Logo field by picking the File Upload.
Edit the label to Logo. Make the field optional (I said above that uploading texts or logos is not mandatory for every customer).
In pro, we can add the Help text for the product field.
Here, I put an explanation for the logo uploading product field. A small question mark icon displays the right side of the product field. If you hover the mouse over that icon, the message pops up.
It helps many customers by telling them what the product field is.
Also, we can allow our customers to upload multiple files as they want.
Save the changes you made by clicking the Update button.
The procedure of adding the created custom product form to the product is the same as mentioned in the free version.
After adding the form to the product, visit the product page.

Also, you can optimize your page with its basic version if you feel enough with its free features.
