Use the videos and links on this page when you need information about setting up your WooCommerce products.

Here is a link to the WooCommerce website that is a complete overview of setting up a standard product from start to finish.

Once you set up a product, you may want to set up GLOBAL attributes that you can use with ALL your products with options – called VARIABLE PRODUCTS.

You have already set up global variable attributes, so this is just a reminder in case you need to add more.

Set global attributes

Go to Products > Attributes to add, edit, and remove attributes.

Here you can quickly and easily add attributes and their terms.

  • Add a Name.
  • Add a Slug; (optional); this is the URL-friendly version of the name.
  • Enable Archives if desired. If enabled, you can view a page with all products having this attribute. For example, if you have this enabled, and “black” is one of the options under “color”, you can add http://yourstore.com/pa_color/black/ to your menu to only display black clothing – pa stands for “product attribute.”
  • Select a Default sort order. Choose between “Name”, “Name (numeric)”, “Term ID” or “Custom ordering” where you decide by dragging and dropping the terms in the list when configuring the terms (see below). “Name (numeric)” is relevant if the values are numbers. If you select “Name”, it sorts alphabetically with 1 and 10 preceding 2. If you select “Name (numeric)” it sorts based on numerical value. 

Select Add Attribute.

The attribute is added in the table on the right, but without values.

Select the “Configure terms” text to add attribute values.

Next Add New “Attribute name”, where “Attribute name” automatically takes the name you gave the attribute in the previous step.

Add as many values as you wish. If you selected “Custom ordering” for the attribute, reordering your values can be done here.
