Advaced Product Fields (Product Addons) for WooCommerce allows you to add extra product options (form input fields) to your WooCommerce product pages. Whether you want to create a pizza configurator or add extra options, this plugin has got you covered!
Allow customers to personalize their product with a handful of extra choices, input fields, etc… These product addons can increase the final product price too. The extra form data submitted by the customer will be shown on the cart and checkout pages and will be saved on the backend order.
The backend looks & works similar to ACF, so you are familiar with setting up the extra product options without a hassle.
This plugin is the best modern free WooCommerce Product Addons alternative currently available.

👉 How can our plugin be useful and what should you use it for?
WooCommerce only has limited features to display extra product options (often also called product addons) on your product pages. You can use their “variable products” which can add a few select (dropdown) lists to a product.
But what if you’re selling customizable t-shirts where customers can print their name on a t-shirt? Or what if you’d like your customers to build their own pizza where they can freely choose extra toppings?
These product types can’t be built with WooCommerce out-of-the-box. That’s where our plugin comes in. It allows you to build more complex WooCommerce products that can easily be personalized by your customer.
When should you use WooCommerce built-in variations versus our plugin? We wrote a handy blog post to answer that question.
👉️ What makes our plugin different from the competition?
During your research, you may have seen other plugins that do (more or less) the same. Here is how we are different:
✅️ Our plugin is younger than the competition. It does not have to support older WooCommerce or WordPress versions, so you benefit from modern code.
✅️ Quality above quantity. We carefully choose what & how we implement features so the plugin remains lightweight and fast.
✅️ The plugin’s frontend scripts are tiny (~7kb) and doesn’t impact your SEO score.
✅️ Easy-to-use modern backend (based on ACF) which follows WordPress & WooCommerce standards.
✅️ Regular updates to stay on top of new WordPress & WooCommerce versions.
✅️ Our plugin runs fewer database queries because we’ve spent time optimizing how data is stored.
✅️ No nags! We do not like to plaster your WP admin with unnecessary ads or asking for a review. We do hope you leave a review to help us grow.
We understand these statements are meaningless without additional proof to back them up, so here are a few links to help make up your mind:

👉️ Limitations of the free version
Our free version is great for small stores or stores that don’t need to add many complex options (product addons) to their products.
There are a few limitations of the free version that you should be aware about:
- The free version does not integrate with 3rd party plugins such as WooCommerce Subscriptions or a multi-currency plugin (unless they write an integration).
- The free version does not work with themes using Ajax technology for their product “add to cart” button.
The free version allows only allows you to add an extra flat fee ( = not quantity based) to your product price.
If you need those features, you may consider our premium version. You can read ahead what’s included with premium.
