Can multiple files be uploaded by customers using the "File" add-on?

Each File add-on will only allow a single file upload. However, you can include multiple File add-on fields if necessary. Alternatively, you can encourage ZIP file uploads to include multiple files using only one File add-on field.

Do add-ons only appear when customers are purchasing certain products?

By default, add-ons and their associated pricing apply to the entire cart. Display rules can be set so that an add-on only appears when specific products or categories are in the cart, but the add-on and its associated discount or fee will still be applied to the entire cart.

If you need product-specific add-on options and price settings, consider adding the Product Add-ons extension to your site.

Can the way add-ons appear on the checkout page be changed?

Add-on fields inherit the styling set by your site's main theme, and therefore should match the rest of your styling by default.

Target #wc_checkout_add_ons with some CSS to add different styling. Learn more about custom CSS styling in WooCommerce.

Can HTML be used in add-on field options?

HTML can be used in the options of Radio and Multi-checkbox add-on types. The HTML elements should be individually wrapped in double braces:

{{<a href="link">}} Link Text {{</a>}}

Can placeholders and descriptions be added?
