Adding Spec Sheets to Product Description

My store requires some products to have Spec Sheet PDF's added below the description that a user can then click on. Is there a way to do this without having to edit the code or hire a developer?

Hi Casey,

This is May from Shopify.

You can definitely add a link on your product page that links to a PDF file. Let’s go through this together!

  • First of all, you will want to upload your PDF file to your store. To do this, you’ll need to go to your admin and click on ‘Settings > Files > Upload Files’ then, select the PDF file you wish to upload. We also have a guide that goes over how to upload files to your website on our Shopify help doc.

  • After you upload your file, copy the URL.

  • Go to ‘Products’ and select the product you wish to edit.

  • On the product description, type in the hyperlink text you wish to appear on your product page, then highlight it and click on this icon: to link the text.

 

  • Paste the URL on the ‘Link to’ field, and you can choose if you want the link to open on the same window or a new window by selecting the dropdown.

  • Finally, click ‘Insert link’ and ‘Save’ your changes.

Check out this link for a video tutorial on all the steps we went over above.

Hope this helps! If you run into any troubles or have any questions at all, feel free to reply to this thread or contact our 24/7 support!

Kind Regards,

May

The way I did this was by downloading a free pdf icon from here https://www.flaticon.com/free-icon/pdf_136522?term=pdf&page=1&position=79 then inserting it into the product description, then creating a hyperink to the datasheet page.

Hope that helps

If we have pdf uploading insertion button just near the product description editing page as we process in the Magento platform, it would be great.

According to your message, we can list pdf link. But it is very difficult. If you could provide more easy method, please advise

IS there actually a way to automatically generate a pdf by pulling the product fields instead of uploading every pdf for a product? Is this possible? I know we can pull in template fields or certain variable in email templates to customer. I know Craft Commerce allows this, If this is possible is there documentation to do this?

I know it's been a while, but if you are still looking, then Agile Attachments can generate PDF files based on the product attributes.

I am also looking for a PDF file to add to a product.

I like to drag and drop instead of putting it in the descriptions links which is too much work.

Hi @LUCIEN 

We have not seen such drag and drop pdf file adding app in Shopify

We have enough application in other ecommerce platforms such as Magento and Woocommerce. We are experienced in those applications

Presently we need to upload PDFs into "Files" section and include in description with "HTML" code. This is the only successful solution in Shopify. We have noticed few apps for this feature. But no one are satisfied using app

If any one has more experience and who are satisfied any of the app regarding the same subject, please share
