I would like to know how I can create upload only permission level so users are only able to upload documents.

  • Are you sure you want that? If you ever give those people access to a list with metadata you will need a curator to finalize the upload – Kasper Bo Larsen May 10 '18 at 15:56

Try to create a custom permission level with at least add and view items as the following;

Create a new permission level named Uploaders and check the permissions Open, Add Items, View Items and View Pages. Then grant the permission level to the users and groups who should be able to upload documents but not edit and delete them.

You can manage permission levels from Site Settings > Site Permissions > Permission Levels
