How to add feature where user can customize its product like adding images

3 0 1

Hey there,

I am new into Shopify development and I will be creating an print on demand kind of ecommerce website. The main feature will be where the user can customize its product with the design provided in the website ( Eg: Uploading a photo into t-shirt ). 
My query is does this feature is available on themes or is there a different way to add such feature. 
Kindly help me out with this. Also if you guys can provide some theme in which this feature is present (free or paid) will be really appreciated. Thanks

Hello @Focalweb 

Customizing products with user-uploaded designs, like allowing customers to upload photos for printing on a t-shirt, is indeed possible with Shopify. While some themes may offer built-in customization options, the level of customization you require might require additional app integration or custom development.

To implement this feature, you have a few options:

  1. Theme customization: You can explore Shopify themes that offer product customization features out of the box. These themes often include options to upload images or add custom text to products. Some popular themes with customization capabilities include Debutify, Booster, and Shella. You can find these themes in the Shopify Theme Store or from third-party theme developers.

  2. App integration: If the theme you choose doesn't have the desired customization options, you can integrate third-party apps that provide product customization functionality. There are several apps available on the Shopify App Store, such as Product Customizer by W3Trends, Infinite Options by ShopPad, and Custom Product Builder by Buildateam. These apps allow you to set up custom fields and design options for your products.

  3. Custom development: For more complex customization requirements, you may consider custom development. This involves hiring a Shopify developer to build a bespoke solution tailored specifically to your needs. With custom development, you have full control over the design and functionality of your product customization feature.

When choosing a theme or app, ensure that it aligns with your specific requirements and has good reviews and support. It's also important to consider the scalability and performance of the solution, especially if you anticipate a high volume of customization requests. I recommend exploring the options mentioned above and assessing which approach suits your needs best.

Feel free to reach out to me if you're looking for a Shopify expert or developer for further guidance and assistance in implementing the product customization feature effectively.


Best of luck with your print on demand e-commerce website!

  • Choose the products where you want to offer the file upload option, and you're all set:



As you can see, this app is user-friendly and won't take up much of your time to set up. Give it a try and experience the convenience it brings 🙌!
