Woocommerce is one of the best WordPress plugins for online stores. It offers you so many features and functionalities to manage your products and sell them online. When users search for any product on your websites, they need to check many things. They need to compare one item to others and also look for other variations of that product like size, color, features, and many other factors.
WooCommerce gives you the opportunity to manage your products with different variations by using attributes. So here in this article, you will show how easily you can add and manage products attributes in WooCommerce.
What are Woocommerce Attributes
Attributes are the features that add extra data and information about your products. It is also helpful for filtering and searching. If your products have different attributes, it will be easier for your customers to search for any specific products they want.
Many people are confused about variations and attributes, but they are not the same. Variations have nothing to do with searching and filtering. Variation helps too, choose from the different options like different colors or sizes. Variations are based on attributes. Creating attributes is an essential first step before creating variations.
Setting Up WooCommerce Attributes
Suppose you are selling mobile devices in your online shop. You are selling different brands, different models, and different features: for mobile. You want your customer to choose the perfect device for their needs. You can do this by adding attributes and adding variations using those attributes.
To set up distributes login to your WordPress dashboard and go to Products > Attributes. By default, you don’t have any attributes. Suppose you need to add attributes based on your mobile device’s RAM version.
- Add the attribute name as “RAM”.
- Slug will automatically be created, and we can leave the rest of these options untouched.
- Click the “Add attribute” button and your attribute will be added.
Configure The Attributes
After creating our attribute RAM, now we can add different RAM versions to your devices. Click on the Configure Terms option.
Now add our different RAM versions. We can add all the versions at a time.
- Enter the RAM version
- Add some short description
- Click on the Add New Ram tab
If you now go to the attribute page then you can see your recently created attributes and their variations.
Add Custom Attributes to Individual Products
Sometimes it is important to add any custom attributes for unique products as needed rather than going through the above-described procedure of setting pre-configured attributes. When you have different products with different attributes then you need to add custom attributes for individual products.
- Go to WordPress dashboard.
- Select the specific products.
- Scroll down to the Product Data section and find the attributes option
- Click Attributes. The drop-down menu for “Custom product attribute” is already selected. Click Add.
- Name your attributes and add values.
- Save attributes
