PrestaShop 1.7.x How to attach files to the products

When you are creating your products in PrestaShop 1.7, you may want to add a file attachment for your customers. This can be a PDF manual, a guide or even warranty information, or any other downloadable file.

Each product can have files, which can be individually set in the Options tab, under Attached files. That page gives you access to all the attached files of the shop: if you need to apply the associated file with many products, you will thus only have to upload it once: 

Note: Keep in mind, the files are no longer called “Attachments” in PrestaShop 1.7 what we can call Files in PrestaShop 1.7 used to be referred as Attachments in previous versions of PrestaShop. Except for the name, it all works the same!

The steps below will guide you on how to add your files before associating them with products:

  1. In your PrestaShop admin panel go to Catalog -> Files section: 
  2. Click Add new file button at the top: 
  3. Fill in the following options:
    • Filename – a file name, in all the needed languages.
    • Description – a quick description, in all the needed languages.
    • File – browse a file on your computer to upload.
  4. Once, all the information is entered and the file is uploaded, click the Save button to finalize the addition. You will return to the attachment list screen and will see your new attachment on the list. It is now available for all products, through their Attached files option.
