How to Add Attributes to Products in Woocommerce
Here’s a step-by-step guide on how to add global attributes and assign them to products in WooCommerce:
Step 1: Log in to your WooCommerce Dashboard Navigate to your WooCommerce dashboard and log in.
Step 2: Go to the Attributes settings From the dashboard menu, click on Products > Attributes. This will take you to the Attributes settings page.
Step 3: Add a new attribute To add a new attribute, fill in the Name field and select the Attribute Type from the dropdown menu. The three types of attributes you can create are:
- Select: for attributes with a single value, such as “Color”
- Checkbox: for attributes with multiple values, such as “Size”
- Text: for attributes with a text value, such as “Material”
Once you have filled in the necessary details, click on the Add Attribute button to create the new attribute.
Step 4: Add attribute values Once you have created the attribute, you will need to add some values to it. To do this, click on the attribute name to expand it and then click on the Configure Terms link.
From here, you can add each value as a separate term. For example, if your attribute is “Color”, you could add terms such as “Red”, “Blue”, and “Green”. Once you have added all the necessary terms, click on the Add New XXX button (where XXX is the name of the attribute type, such as “Color”) to save them.
Step 5: Assign attributes to products To assign the attributes you created to your products, go to the Product Data section of the product you want to edit. From there, click on the Attributes tab.
In the Attributes tab, click on the Custom Product Attribute dropdown and select the attribute you want to add. Then, click on the Add button to add the attribute to the product.
Next, click on the arrow next to the attribute to expand it and select the term(s) that apply to this product. For example, if the attribute is “Color” and the product is available in both “Red” and “Blue”, you would select both terms.
Once you have added all the necessary attributes and terms, click on the Save Changes button to save your changes.
And that’s it! You have successfully added global attributes and assigned them to your products in WooCommerce.
