As for me, this is an important part in the series Learning WooCommerce by yourself. In order to apply these tips in this article How to Add New Products in WooCommerce you should know about Product Attributes in WooCommerce because any product posting on a website requires elements: product image, category, price, type and even many attributes. However, on such simple level, like we are, I don’t require product attributes.
Adding a Simple Product
Adding a simple product can be very easy, especially for experienced WordPress users. Here are steps you need to do:
- First, click on “Product” and then “Add product”
- Second, you will see a board that is similar to one when you add a new post.
- Third, scrolling the below, a general tab fills out your regular price, sale price and tax of your product.
- In addition, on the right hand of the Add New Product panel, you can four meta boxes:
- Product categories
- Product Tag
- Product Image
- Product Gallery
To add a new product, you need to create a category. For example, if your new product is a White T-shirt for men, you need to create a new category with the name “Men’s T-shirt”. Then you can add the main image, a gallery of images and some product data.
Finally, click the button “Publish”. If you want to know whether your product has been uploaded or not, you can click on the button “Shop” on the menu bar, or go to the link: http://localhost/wordpress/shop You can see the result below.
And when you click on the image of this blue T-shirt, this product will be displayed on product details page like this.
