Product Extras is a WooCommerce product addons plugin which allows your customers to customise your products. You can add extra options to your products like text boxes, dropdowns, checkboxes and radio buttons – and you can add as many additional fields as you like, giving you and your customers fine-grained control over configuring products.
Every field can be assigned a price, which either adds or even subtracts from the original product price, so you can charge your customers extra for personalizations. This allows you to add value to each of your products and increase your profitability.
Certain fields, like dropdowns and radio buttons, can have different prices associated with each option.

Add option fields globally or per productProduct Extras makes it easy for you, especially if you’ve got hundreds of products because you can add extras to individual products or globally.
When you’re adding fields globally, you can specify conditional rules for which products display a field: either all products, by product ID, or by category
Conditional logicShow or hide options with conditional logic. For example, you can choose to display a field only if another field has been selected
Apply the cost of options by quantity or just once
Product Extra’s flat rate option lets you choose to apply the cost of field once only, whatever quantity the customer selects, or to multiply the cost of the field by the quantity.
You can even choose to set fields that are only applied once per order, not just once per product

You can use Product Extras for WooCommerce to let your clients add custom information to a product, for example:
- Adding personalized messages
- Uploading images to be printed, e.g. on teeshirts, mugs, etc
- Adding gift messages
- Adding dedications or engravings for jewelry and other gifts
- Gift cards with their recipient’s name, a custom message, even a special photo
- Greetings cards with customized message and image
- Adding gift wrapping option
- Adding options to subscription products
- Custom menus, e.g. build your own pizza or build your own sandwich products
Fields can be organized into groups: for instance, so, if you would like to allow your customers to create tailor-made greetings cards, you could have a group of options for the front of the card and a group of options for the message inside. Having groups ensures that it’s clear for your customers where to enter information.
Product Extras has an extensive number of custom fields to add to your products. You can add as many of these custom product options as you wish to each product. Take a look at a product with examples of all fields here.
Each field has a label or heading and you can specify whether the field is required. You can also add an optional description that will appear under the field, allowing you to provide the user with some further explanation and guidance.
Crucially, you can assign a price to each field. The price will be added to the product total if the field is completed by the customer. Product Extras has a useful feature that allows field prices to be set as flat rate. This means that the field price is only added once to the product price, whatever quantity the customer has set. Find out more about flat rate prices here.
The Basic licence entitles you to support and updates for one site.
The Pro licence entitles you to support and updates for an unlimited number of sites. You also get the following additional features.
Use products as addons to other products, so customers can add multiple products to their cart from one page
Radio button image swatches
A picture is worth a thousand words. Product Extras Pro allows you to upload images to accompany your radio buttons to let your customers see what options they are adding.
Group toggles and tabs
Product Extras let you add an unlimited number of fields and organise them into groups. With the Pro version you can keep your groups neat and arrange them into Accordions or Tabs
Percentage based pricing lets you set the value of an option as a percentage of the product price. This works especially well with variations when each variation has a different price.
Percentage based pricing allows you to charge for extras according to the value of the product and its variations.
Create groups of checkboxes and specify the minimum and/or maximum number of checkboxes that the user should select
As well as entering your addons on individual products, you can save time by adding them at a global level. You can also set rules for what products display each field, e.g.:
- On all products
- On a list of specified products
- If the product belongs to a list of specified categories
Product Extras supports conditional logic so you can display different fields depending on the information provided by the user. It’s the only WooCommerce product addons plugin that supports this feature.
Show or hide fields
Conditional logic works by showing or hiding a field based on one or more conditions that you specify. A simple example of this would be a checkbox that, when clicked, revealed another field. A more complex example would be to only display a field if several other fields contained specific information.
Product Extras for WooCommerce is integrated with WooCommerce Subscriptions, allowing you to offer addons to your subscriptions. The cost of the addons are added to the subscription cost and charged as part of the recurring payments.
Product Extras is also integrated with Bookings for WooCommerce so you can offer additional services and products to your bookable products.
Product Extras works seamlessly with many, many other plugins. If you have a question, please get in touch.
Product Extras integrates into the WooCommerce Product Data section. It doesn’t add any ugly looking new interface styles so it blends in perfectly with your WordPress dashboard.
The plugin adds a new ‘Product Extras’ tab to theProduct Data section which allows you to set up which groups and fields you want.
Extras are divided into groups, which are then divided into fields.
This allows you to segment your additional fields according to whatever way you like. For example, if you’re accepting online submissions for an exhibition you may wish to allow users to submit two images each with a title. To do this, you’d create two groups. Each group would have a field for the upload and a field for the title.
You can add as many groups to products as you wish. Each group can be given a title which is displayed on the product page to help your users. Remember – the Pro version also allows you to present your groups in accordions or tabs.
It goes without saying that you can style extra fields in any way you like to match your theme. However, the plugin uses neutral styles that should fit nicely with any theme without the need for further styling.
Any options that the customer selects on the product page are saved in the cart and listed with each item in the cart. The same applies at checkout, on the order confirmation page, and on customer and admin emails.
Some aspects of Product Extras can be configured in the Customizer – for instance, you can specify how to display option price subtotals and price labels easily from the Customizer.
As well as adding all selected fields to the product order, the extra product content is saved separately in a custom post type, containing meta data linking it to the original product, the order, and the user. It also displays the field data submitted by the user. This is helpful if you need to extract this information from the order – for instance, if you are using Product Extras to collect customer submissions for a competition.
You can export your product extra fields to CSV file for Excel, Numbers or comparable spreadsheet program.
The plugin can also be used as part of a submissions process and is therefore ideal for:
- Artist submissions for galleries and exhibitions
- Photography competitions
- Competition entries
- Applications to take part in expositions or trade shows
- Event applications
In fact, any process where you want to take payments from users but require additional information:
- See an example of an online call for artist submissions
- See an example of accepting online competition entries
Product Extras is full of hooks and filters that allow you to extend it for your own needs. If you find you need another action or filter adding, let me know and I’ll include it in the next update.
