There is an easy way to implement WooCommerce upload checkout feature. In this article, I'll show you the method! This is a step-by-step guide.
First, I want to show you the final effect. I just want you to be sure that this is what you are looking for.
We will use a plugin. Using it, WooCommerce upload checkout field looks like this:
You can use CSS styling to change the field's look. I'll show you that later.
Also, look at the 'Here you can Upload the File'. This is the Label. You can set your own label.
The method (that I want to show you later) has the endless possibilities.
Now, I changed labels. Also, I created two WooCommerce upload checkout fields in a row. Look:
Also, you can use a checkbox like me:
Your customers will see which file they upload:
You can limit what type of files they can upload to your store. Also, you can set the maximum file size. Here is the error message for the file type that I don't allow:
Now, a few words about the design. I use the default WooCommerce theme: Storefront. That's why my checkout page looks so raw and so does the WooCommerce upload checkout field.

Let me introduce The Plugin
Standard WooCommerce doesn't let you add upload checkout field. Also, you won't be able to customize your checkout in a way you want to. That's why we created the Flexible Checkout Fields.
People love it because it helps them a lot! That's one of many reviews:
Just for you know, almost 30,000 stores use it on a daily basis!
You can use it to create WooCommerce upload checkout field. However, you can do much more with this plugin!
In general, Flexible Checkout Fields lets you:
- easily add custom fields to the checkout,
- edit the present ones,
- rearrange fields in the checkout
- and much more!
You can download this plugin for free but you will need the PRO version. We limited the free version to two types of custom fields only:
- Single Line Text
- Paragraph Text
However, check out this plugin for free before you buy!
Configuration of the upload checkout field
Let's start with the configuration.
Just go to WooCommerce → Checkout Fields:
You will see the Billing section. You can edit this section or add a new field.
All you have to do is:
- to choose a File Upload field type
- then to provide a Label
- and just click Add Field.
Next, select the new field in the Edit section column.
You can set here the:
- Allowed file types
- and Maximum file size

Next option is the Appearance:
That is optional, of course. You can provide any CSS Class here. This way you can set styling for the field.
