The customisation fields feature allows you to determine on each product if you want your customers to be able to enter text to go with the product. This is useful if you have customisable products (such as a T-shirt or a mug that they can have text printed on) or if you want them to be able to include a gift message:
You can add as many fields as you would like, and you can specify whatever label you would like for each text field. You can also choose what type of text field you want it to be (whether it be 1 line or multiple) and if you want to limit the number of characters your customer can input.
To allow for customisation fields you will need to change your product settings. To do this selectfrom the menu.
Find the setting that asks about customisation fields, as shown below:
Change the setting to ‘Yes’ and select save changes.
Adding a customisation field
To add a customisation field to a product use the section named ‘Customisation Fields’ when creating or editing a product:
Input what you want the label to be for the field, the type of field (meaning if you want it to be 1 line or multiple lines) and, if you want to, set a limit for the number of characters a customer can input in the field.
To add multiple fields select + add another as many times as you need.
When you have finished adding fields select save changes or save + close to complete the process.
Any text the customer enters will be on the confirmation email sent to both you and them.

Customisation Field Max Length
In this column enter the maximum number of characters the customer is allowed to enter in the field. If you do not want to place a maximum then leave this column blank.
If you are entering multiple customisation fields for a product enter them on one line but separate them with a comma, as shown below:
