If you’re running an online store with Woocommerce, you may want to add attributes to your products to make them easier for customers to find. Attributes can include things like size, color, material, and more. In this beginner’s guide, we’ll walk you through the process of adding attributes to your Woocommerce products.
Step 1: Create Attributes The first step is to create the attributes that you want to add to your products. To do this, go to Products > Attributes in your Woocommerce dashboard. Click on the “Add New” button and enter a name for your attribute (e.g. “Size”). Then click the “Add Attribute” button.
Step 2: Add Attribute Values After creating your attribute, you need to add values to it. These are the specific options that customers will be able to select when browsing your products. To do this, click on the name of your attribute to open its settings. Then, under “Values,” click “Add New.” Enter the name of your value (e.g. “Small”) and click “Save.”
Step 3: Assign Attributes to Products Now that you have created your attribute and added values to it, you can assign it to your products. To do this, go to Products > All Products in your dashboard. Click on the name of the product that you want to add the attribute to. Then, under the “Product Data” section, click on the “Attributes” tab. Select the attribute that you want to add and click “Add.” Then, select the value that you want to assign to the product and click “Save Changes.”
Step 4: Display Attributes on Your Storefront Once you have assigned attributes to your products, you may want to display them on your storefront so that customers can easily filter and find products based on their desired attributes. To do this, you can use the Woocommerce Layered Nav widget. Simply go to Appearance > Widgets in your dashboard, drag the “Woocommerce Layered Nav” widget to the desired widget area, and configure its settings to display the attributes that you want.
In conclusion, adding attributes to your Woocommerce products can help improve the user experience on your store and make it easier for customers to find what they’re looking for. By following these simple steps, you can easily create and assign attributes to your products and display them on your storefront.
