Add a Product With Variations In WooCommerce



Often, you have to add products to stores with a variation. For example, you may have different sizes for a shirt or colors for a mug. By selecting Variable Product from the Product Data menu inside your new WooCommerce product, you will be able to add these variations to your new product. First, add which variations you want to add in the Attributes tab, then use those saved attributes to create the variations.
