ADDING A VARIABLE PRODUCT
Step 1. Set the Product Type
To add a variable product, create a new product or edit an existing one.
Go to: Add Product
Select the Add Product button or Edit an existing product. The Product Data displays.
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.
Choosing Global Attributes
To use a global attribute:
Create global attributes.
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.
Adding Custom Attributes
To add a new attribute specific to this product:
Select Custom product attribute and click Add.
Name the attribute (e.g., Size).
Set values separated by a vertical pipe,
|(e.g., Small | Medium | Large).
Enable the Used for variations checkbox.
Click Save attributes.
2: Select attributes for your variation. To change additional data, click the triangle icon to expand the variation.
Step 3. Add Variations
To add a variation, go to the Variations section in the Product Data meta box.
Manually Add a Variation
1: Select Add variation from the dropdown menu, and select Go.
3: Edit any available data. The only required field is Regular Price.
4: Click Save changes.
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.
If you have two attributes – color (with values blue and green) and size (with values large and small) it creates the following variations:
- Large Blue
- Large Green
- Small Blue
- Small Green
Adding Variation Data
Each variation can have the following properties.
Enabled – Enable or disable the variation.
Regular Price (required) – Set the price for this variation.
Sale Price (optional) – Set a price for this variation when on sale.
Inventory for variable products can be managed on product and variation level.
Сhoose how to manage stock by toggling Enable stock management at product level on the Inventory tab.
The following settings are available if you choose to manage stock on a product level:
SKU – If you use SKUs, set the SKU or leave blank to use the product’s SKU.
Manage Stock? – Tick the box to manage stock at the variation level.
Stock Quantity – Shows if Manage Stock is selected. Input the quantity. Stock for the specific variation, or left blank to use the product’s stock settings.
Allow Backorders – Choose how to handle backorders.
Low stock threshold – Enter a number to be notified.
Sold Individually? – Allow only one to be sold in one order. (This setting is used for the product itself. You cannot set a specific variation to only be sold once per order.)
Choosing to manage stock for variations individually allows you to edit the same properties for each variation.
