WooCommerce Pay to Upload


Allow customers to pay to upload a file. Once a WooCommerce order has been marked as processed, a file upload screen will appear on the order details page.


  • Upload the plugin files to the ‘/wp-content/plugins/’ directory
    • Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress


Why would I want the user to upload a file once payment has been made rather than during the checkout process?

If you allowed every user to upload a file without yet making a payment then every time a payment failed or you used a payment method that waits for an IPN response, your disk space will be consumed by files you should not have received. By waiting until after payment this keeps things cleaner.

Where are files stored?

Uploaded files are stored in your wp-content/uploads folder, a new folder named “wc-pay-to-upload” will be created and within that each order will have it’s own folder based on the order ID.

How do I access the uploaded files?

Once files are uploaded you can view them from the admin view of the order. A meta box is added to the side with links to the files.
