File Attachments

Heads Up! This is a PRO feature. You must have an active membership to use this feature.
<input type="file" name="attachment" />
You will need to add enctype="multipart/form-data" to the Form Element to make the attachment work.
<form action="https://api.web3forms.com/submit" enctype="multipart/form-data" method="POST">
...
<input type="file" name="attachment" />
...
</form>
If you are using Javascript / Ajax to submit the form, make sure you set the Headers accordingly. Setting wrong headers will throw an error.

Advanced File Uploader

Our Default HTML5 File uploader works only for single files up to 5 MB only. To upload multiple files or larger attachments, we recommend using our Advanced File Uploader. Please see the guide here

File upload with Javascript

Here's an example code with Javascript

<form id="myForm" method="POST">
...
<input type="file" id="attachment" name="attachment" />
...
<button type="submit">Submit Form</button>
</form>
const form = document.getElementById("myForm");
form.addEventListener("submit", function (e) {
e.preventDefault();
const formData = new FormData(form);
formData.append("access_key", "YOUR_ACCESS_KEY_HERE");
formData.append("subject", "New Submission from Web3Forms");
const file = document.getElementById("attachment");
const filesize = file.files[0].size / 1024;
if (filesize > 1000) {
alert("Please upload file less than 1 MB");
return;
}
// Don't add `headers` or `content-type` in this fetch call
// Since it contains attachments, the browser auto-adds them.
fetch("https://api.web3forms.com/submit", {
method: "POST",
body: formData
})
.then(async (response) => {
let json = await response.json();
if (response.status == 200) {
console.log(json.message);
} else {
console.log(response);
}
})
.catch((error) => {
console.log(error);
})
.then(function () {
form.reset();
});
});
