How to Allows Customers to Upload Files

Posted On: Sep 4, 2018

Understanding customers’ mind is the secret behind delivering exactly the same thing they have been searching for. People always like to have personalization in the items they order from an online store, that’s why they like to add comments and instructions for it.

On the product page, order or cart page, the customer often lacks the functionality to post instructions or upload images that perfectly define what they are asking. For example, a gift wrapping service provider can better serve if a customer provides a sample paper or a wrapping idea while placing the order.

In the same way, most of the women are careful about the garments and jewelry they wear. Unlike a great majority, they don’t like to follow trends, so they need slight modification that suits their taste and likeness. To allow the customers to easily post images and other documents in the product, order or cart pages, we have come up with a module, named as PrestaShop upload File.

How It Facilitates Your Customers?

The customers are provided with a My Account section, which allows them to upload a file that includes anything. It may include an image, a document or textual data that helps the store owners to take care of the end product.

Most of the customers buy products online with inspirations. They have either watched a costume design in a party or watched jewelry set in a TV serial. To make the supplier understand, the customer can instantly upload relevant files right on the product page.

The customers can add multiple files to an order to clarify the modification, whether it’s about wrapping a gift, combining it with other items or writing anything over it.

It’s one of the many examples that apply to the online stores offering great variety of products and services.
