How do I use product personalization for WooCommerce?

1. Make sure your Printful WooCommerce plugin is at least version 2.1

Firstly, the integration only works in plugin version 2.1 or later, so make sure that your plugin is updated.

2. Create a new product for personalization (currently DTG products, embroidery text, and wall art)

Once your plugin is updated, you need to create a new product for your store. In your dashboard, click add next to your WooCommerce store, and pick the product you want your customers to be able to personalize. Remember that personalization only works for our DTG products, embroidered text, and our wall art.

3. Create the section of the design you wish to keep fixed

Once you have chosen a product, add all the parts of the designs you want to keep fixed.

4. Choose the design elements for personalization (texts, images, or both)

You can let your customers add their own text or their own image to your design. To let them add their own text, create some example text using our text tool, and then click the “Allow text personalization” box here. We also recommend you set the “Customizable text area” as large as possible, so your customers can fit any text they wish in the box. Be mindful of the digitization fee that would apply to each unique embroidery design.

To let your customers add upload their own image to your design, add an example image to your product, and then click the “Allow image personalization” tool. Note that you will have to let your customer know about the requirements of the uploaded image, such as file size and the acceptable content guidelines.

5. Push the product to your WooCommerce store

Once you are happy with your product, add it to your store as usual. We recommend you write in the description that your product is customizable!

6. Your customer personalizes the product, buys it, and we fulfill it

Once the product is added to your store, you will see a new “personalize design” button.

When a customer clicks it, a popup with a basic version of the Printful mock-up generator will appear.

Here, your customer will be able to personalize their product by adding the text or images you made customizable!

And that's it! We will fulfill and ship the order as usual.
