To create an e-commerce add product form using ReactJS for the frontend and PHP with MySQL for the backend, you’ll need to follow these steps:

Frontend (ReactJS)

  1. Create a React project:
   npx create-react-app ecommerce-app
   cd ecommerce-app
  1. Set up the form component:
    Create a file named AddProductForm.js in the src directory.
   import React, { useState } from 'react';
import axios from 'axios';
import './AddProductForm.css';

const AddProductForm = () => {
  const [productName, setProductName] = useState('');
  const [description, setDescription] = useState('');
  const [price, setPrice] = useState('');
  const [image, setImage] = useState(null);
  const [errors, setErrors] = useState({});

  const validateForm = () => {
    const newErrors = {};
    if (!productName) newErrors.productName = 'Product Name is required';
    if (!description) newErrors.description = 'Description is required';
    if (!price) newErrors.price = 'Price is required';
    if (!image) newErrors.image = 'Image is required';
    return newErrors;

  const handleSubmit = (e) => {
    const formErrors = validateForm();
    if (Object.keys(formErrors).length === 0) {
      const formData = new FormData();
      formData.append('productName', productName);
      formData.append('description', description);
      formData.append('price', price);
      formData.append('image', image);'http://localhost/ecommerce-api/addProduct.php', formData)
        .then(response => {
        .catch(error => {
          console.error('There was an error adding the product!', error);
    } else {

  return (
    <form onSubmit={handleSubmit}>
        <label>Product Name:</label>
          onChange={(e) => setProductName(} 
          className={errors.productName ? 'error' : ''}
        {errors.productName && <span className="error-message">{errors.productName}</span>}
          onChange={(e) => setDescription(} 
          className={errors.description ? 'error' : ''}
        {errors.description && <span className="error-message">{errors.description}</span>}
          onChange={(e) => setPrice(} 
          className={errors.price ? 'error' : ''}
        {errors.price && <span className="error-message">{errors.price}</span>}
          onChange={(e) => setImage([0])} 
          className={errors.image ? 'error' : ''}
        {errors.image && <span className="error-message">{errors.image}</span>}
      <button type="submit">Add Product</button>

export default AddProductForm;
  1. Add the form component to your main app:
    Update App.js to include the AddProductForm.
   import React from 'react';
   import './App.css';
   import AddProductForm from './AddProductForm';

   function App() {
     return (
       <div className="App">
         <h1>Add Product</h1>
         <AddProductForm />

   export default App;

4. Create a CSS file: Create a file named AddProductForm.css in the src directory.

/* AddProductForm.css */

form {
    max-width: 600px;
    margin: 0 auto;
    padding: 20px;
    border: 1px solid #ddd;
    border-radius: 8px;
    box-shadow: 0 2px 4px rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.1);
    background-color: #fff;
  form div {
    margin-bottom: 15px;
  label {
    display: block;
    font-weight: bold;
    margin-bottom: 5px;
    color: #333;
  textarea {
    width: 100%;
    padding: 10px;
    border: 1px solid #ccc;
    border-radius: 4px;
    box-sizing: border-box;
  input[type="file"] {
    padding: 3px;
  textarea.error {
    border: 1px solid red;
  button {
    padding: 10px 15px;
    background-color: #28a745;
    color: #fff;
    border: none;
    border-radius: 4px;
    cursor: pointer;
    font-size: 16px;
  button:hover {
    background-color: #218838;
  .error-message {
    color: red;
    font-size: 12px;
    margin-top: 5px;

Backend (PHP & MySQL)

  1. Set up your database:
    Create a MySQL database and table to store your products.
   CREATE DATABASE ecommerce;
   USE ecommerce;

   CREATE TABLE products (
     name VARCHAR(255) NOT NULL,
     description TEXT,
     price DECIMAL(10, 2) NOT NULL,
     image VARCHAR(255)
  1. Create the PHP script to handle the form submission:
    Create a file named addProduct.php in your server directory.
   $servername = "localhost";
   $username = "yourusername";
   $password = "yourpassword";
   $dbname = "ecommerce";

   // Create connection
   $conn = new mysqli($servername, $username, $password, $dbname);

   // Check connection
   if ($conn->connect_error) {
     die("Connection failed: " . $conn->connect_error);

   if ($_SERVER['REQUEST_METHOD'] === 'POST') {
     $productName = $_POST['productName'];
     $description = $_POST['description'];
     $price = $_POST['price'];
     $image = '';

     if (isset($_FILES['image']) && $_FILES['image']['error'] === UPLOAD_ERR_OK) {
       $imageTmpPath = $_FILES['image']['tmp_name'];
       $imageName = $_FILES['image']['name'];
       $imageSize = $_FILES['image']['size'];
       $imageType = $_FILES['image']['type'];
       $imageExtension = pathinfo($imageName, PATHINFO_EXTENSION);
       $newImageName = md5(time() . $imageName) . '.' . $imageExtension;
       $uploadFileDir = './uploads/';
       $dest_path = $uploadFileDir . $newImageName;

       if (move_uploaded_file($imageTmpPath, $dest_path)) {
         $image = $newImageName;

     $sql = "INSERT INTO products (name, description, price, image) VALUES ('$productName', '$description', '$price', '$image')";

     if ($conn->query($sql) === TRUE) {
       echo "New product added successfully";
     } else {
       echo "Error: " . $sql . "<br>" . $conn->error;

  1. Ensure the server is running:
    Make sure your PHP server is running. If you’re using XAMPP, MAMP, or similar, place your addProduct.php file in the appropriate directory (e.g., htdocs for XAMPP).
  2. Test the form:
    Start your React app:
   npm start

Navigate to the URL where your PHP server is running (e.g., http://localhost/ecommerce-api/addProduct.php), and you should be able to submit the form and add products to your MySQL database.

Additional Considerations

  • Validation: Add validation to the form inputs.
  • Security: Ensure that the backend script sanitizes inputs to prevent SQL injection.
  • Feedback: Provide user feedback on successful/failed form submissions.
  • Styling: Add CSS to style the form and make it user-friendly.

By following these steps, you should have a basic e-commerce product form that communicates between a ReactJS frontend and a PHP/MySQL backend.

This is it guys and if you will have any kind of query, suggestion or requirement then feel free to comment below.
