If you sell products that you can make engravings on, you have to add the WooCommerce product engraving feature to your store! We value unique things. That's why we like to personalize things we own or the ones we give to others as gifts. Such a feature as engraving can provide a perfect personal touch.
Do you think WooCommerce products lack the option to personalize items with extra product options?
Let's use a FREE plugin to customize WooCommerce products, and add custom product fields, for example, the engravings field. Sell customizable products and increase your sales!

WooCommerce Product with the Engraving field - Plugin Configuration
Install the plugin
1️⃣ First, you need the free Flexible Product Fields plugin.💡 You can also install it right from your store's plugins section by searching for flexible product fields:
Add product custom fields
2️⃣ Once you have the plugin installed and activated, let's configure it.
Choose Products → Product Fields in your WordPress menu. Then you need to add a new field group:
✅ You need to specify the product(s) for which a customer will be able to order a gift message.💡 In the free version of the Flexible Product Fields, you have to specify products one by one while in the PRO version, you may select more products at once.
Decide about the product engraving field type
You may use the free version of the plugin to add custom fields including engraving. ↪️It's also possible to charge customers an extra fee (in PRO).↩️
- Let's see both options now.

3️⃣ The next thing you need to do is to configure the engraving text field. Just add a text field in the Fields section below the Settings section.
✅ You can set a character limit if you want to. There's also an option to set a placeholder. That's how the engraving text field looks on the product page:
👉🏽Here you can see what it looks like in the cart. I typed To my loved one in the engraving text field before adding the watch to the cart.
WooCommerce product engraving at an additional cost
Although the previous example is completely fine, sometimes you may need something more. Of course, some brands would like to make engravings for free.💡 If you want to charge a customer for it, you need some additional configuration. You can set any price you want for engraving so you can make some profit out of it, too. If you want to add price to the fields, you need the PRO version of the Flexible Product Fields plugin.
✅After installing and activating the PRO version you will see the Price type and Price options. Look how I configured them:
That's how it looks on the product page. The cost of engraving is not added to the product cost when the field is empty.
As soon as a customer types something in, both the engraving cost and the product cost are summed up.💡 See all configuration options in the plugin documentation.
Conditional Logic in WooCommerce Product Engraving
Maybe you don't want to show the engraving text field on the product page for every customer. It takes up some space and may distract your store's visitors. The best way to hide this text field is to use a checkbox.
👉🏽 So, if a visitor clicks on the checkbox, the engraving text field shows up. You'll need two fields (checkbox field and text field) where the second one uses conditional logic:
Here's how it works on the product page. Neat!
In the settings, I set a price on the checkbox (£10) which is added to the product price right after your customer clicks on the checkbox.
