If you frequently need your customers to upload a file on your WordPress site, you’ll likely want to place them on a cloud storage provider like Google Drive.
By sending your file uploads to a cloud storage provider such as Google Drive or OneDrive, you will not only have a backup if a disaster, but you will save a lot of time downloading and organizing files.
In this article, we’ll show you how to easily send any file uploads from your WordPress form directly to Google Drive using File request Pro
Why Create a Google Drive Upload Form?
There are situations where users need to send you files securely, like bank statements, payment record, etc. or big files where using email is not an option.
Having a contact form with a file upload feature will make that process much easier for both you and your users. But, why connect it to Google Drive?
You are already using Google Drive internally, but in order for others to share files directly with you, they need a different method. By using File Request Pro, you can keep all files in one place, Google Drive. All you need is to create drive upload from the widget and share it with your customers.
Before diving into the implementation, take a look at this sample form.
