    How can I make the file upload form submit when a file is uploaded?

    Asked by Annie on June 06, 2016 at 01:47 PM

    Hi I am using Shopify Plus and would like to put a file upload form on the checkout page. My problem is I don't want to have a "submit" button. I would like the form to email me the file immediately when the customer uploads it, so that it doesn't have to bring them off of the checkout page. Please let me know a simple way to do this.

    Thank you!

    Unfortunately it is not possible to submit the form when file is uploaded without using submit button. You need to have submit button on your form. Considering that you have embedded your form, once your users submit the form thank message will be shown on your webpage. You can also redirect your users to same page once the form is submitted. To achieve that you need to enter url of your webpage inside of "Redirect to a external link" option on your thank you page settings inside of Form Builder. Inside of this guide you can find how to do it: https://www.jotform.com/help/38-Redirecting-Users-to-a-Different-Page 

    Hope this will help. Let us know if you need further assistance.
