In this tutorial, I will show you how to create a WordPress Upload Form which will allow you to receive files, images and even videos from people via your WordPress form.

You can also collect additional info in the form from potential or current clients, job resumes, videos, audio, Word docs and more.

This has huge potential and could be used many different ways for businesses and personal sites.

I am using the paid version of WPForms which offers a suite of features and tools to create an upload form to receive files from clients or job resumes or whatever kind of files you may need.

    Great question! By default, the user-uploaded files are stored in the WPForms folder inside the Uploads directory of your site. If you’d prefer to upload the files to the WordPress Media Library, click on the File Upload field in the form builder. Then, under Advanced Options, check the box next to Store file in WordPress Media Library. To send a quote base on the form can be sent via email!
