How to add a product in wooCommerce

Adding a simple product

Adding a Simple product is similar to writing a post in WordPress.

  1. Go to WooCommerce > Products > Add Product > Add New. You then have a familiar interface and should immediately feel at home.
  2. Enter a product Title and Description.

 

Note: Virtual products don’t require shipping — an order with virtual products won’t calculate shipping costs.

 

Product data

The Product Data meta box is where the majority of important data is added for your products.

General section

  • Price
    • Regular Price – Item’s normal/regular price
    • Sale Price – Item’s discounted price that can then be scheduled for certain date ranges. The sale expires at 11:59pm of the specified end date
  • Tax
    • Tax status – Taxable / Shipping only / None
    • Tax class – Choose which tax class should be applied

Inventory section

The inventory section allows you to manage stock for the product individually and define whether to allow back orders and more. It enables you to sell products and allow customers to add them to the cart to buy.

Enable Stock Management must be selected in otherwise, only the ‘Stock status’ option is visible in the Product Data Inventory box.

Options when stock management at product level is disabled. You are responsible for updating the Stock Status.

 

Options when stock management at product level is enabled.

  • Enter the Stock Quantity, and WooCommerce auto-manages inventory and auto-updates Stock Status as Stock, Out of Stock or On Backorder.
  • Select whether to Allow Backorders.
  • Low stock threshold – Enter a number upon which you are notified.
  • Tick the Sold Individually box to limit the product to one per order.

Shipping section

  • Weight – Weight of the item.
  • Dimensions – Length, width and height for the item.
  • Shipping Class – Shipping classes are used by certain shipping methods to group similar products.

 

Tag Category on product

On the right-hand side of the Add New Product panel, there are product categories in which you can place your product, similar to a standard WordPress post. You can also assign product tags in the same way.

You an check whichever category you want to tag on the product or instantly create new a category from there to tag the product.

Variable Product

Variable products are a product type in WooCommerce that lets you offer a set of variations on a product, with control over prices, stock, image and more for each variation. They can be used for a product like a shirt, where you can offer a large, medium and small and in different colors.

Adding a Variable Product

Step 1. Set the Product Type

To add a variable product, create a new product or edit an existing one.

  1. Go to: WooCommerce > Products.
  2. Select the Add Product button or Edit an existing product. The Product Data displays.
  3. Select Variable product from the Product Data dropdown.

 

Step 2. Add Attributes to Use for Variations

In the Attributes section, add attributes before creating variations — use global attributes that are site-wide or define custom ones specific to a product.

Global Attributes

  • Adding a global attribute
  • Select one from the dropdown and click Add.
  • Choose Select all to add all attributes to the variable product (if applicable).
  • Enable the Used for variations checkbox to tell WooCommerce it’s for your variations.
  • Click Save attributes.

Step 3. Add Variations

To add a variation, go to the Variations section in the Product Data meta box.

Creating All Possible Variations

Select Create variations from all attributes to have WooCommerce create every possible combination of variations and click Go:

It will create a new variation for each and every possible combination of variation attributes (max 50 per run). If you have more possible combinations you can run it again.

Editing Many Variations

If you have more than 15 variations, use the buttons to navigate forward and backward through the list. Each time you navigate to a new set of variations, the previous set is saved. This ensures that all data is saved.

 

Now need to go to each variation and input the details like: upload pics, put price, manage stock etc.

You an check whichever category you want to tag on the product or instantly create new a category from there to tag the product.
