I would like to know if there is a way to add a file upload option to a product purchase? So let’s say I have a product for sale and one of the options is that a customer needs to upload a file, like a jpeg, is this possible with eStore or would I have to use a separate plugin to go with that? If so, any ideas?
cheers and thanks a lot

Simply place a contact form on your “Thank You” page with the file upload option. This post will explain more:July 18, 2011 at 7:11 am #34367
Thanks again for this. I’ll give it a try. When the file is uploaded at the “Thank You” page, will it be associated in any way to the specific purchase? Or maybe I can use the “Collect Customer Input” checkbox as well to ask them for the filename they are going to upload?

You can use a email field in the contact form and match it up with the sales notification. Alternatively you can ask for the file name or some other reference number for matching purpose.July 18, 2011 at 11:50 pm #34369
OK, great. If it matches up with the sales notification, then that will be very good.

I added a test thank you page and was taken nicely to this page. I used Contact Form 7 to create it and used the file upload option. The file uploaded and was sent successfully, but I did not see anything in the backend, manage customers of the file.
I am also not getting emails sent to me after a manual purchase has been made.
Could it be because I am testing this locally in my iMac using MAMP?July 20, 2011 at 3:36 am #34371
When testing on local development the plugin can’t send emails to your real email account because the server is not live. It’s not even going to receive payment notifications form PayPal either.July 20, 2011 at 8:02 am #34372
ah ha, ok, that explains that part of not receiving emails.
I’ll install it on my live server and continue testing there.
Thanks a million

I installed the WP eStore plugin on my Live server and gave this a test and it works fine indeed. The file gets sent, however when you mentioned above, “You can use a email field in the contact form and match it up with the sales notification”, how would I go about doing this?
You know sometimes, when you make a purchase online, at the end after you have made the final payments, you get an overview of your purchase in a webpage to see? Is there a way to make something like this showing the Transaction ID? Maybe I could use that on the Thank You page or as the Thank you page and request the customer to enter the Transaction ID in a special email field?
