Step 4: Add Attribute and Variation for Product




In SW WooCommerce Swatches, we can create and add the attribute in 02 ways:

01 - the available attribute in Products (can be applied for all variable product)

and 02 - the custom attribute in a product (can be applied for the custom product).


01:  For Available Attribute in Products

When creating the attribute in the Products tab, the attribute will be available for all products in your site.

1. To create a new attribute, please Go to Products > Attributes > then add a new attribute as you want. To configure the attribute, choose Configure terms of an attribute.  


2. After that, you can create a term for the attribute.

To edit a term, hover on the term you want and choose Edit to edit the term.



When editing the term, you can add the Color and Thumbnail Variation for each term. Please note that if you do not add the color or thumbnail variation for the term, it will appear only text in the front end.

If you only add the thumbnail variation, only the image will appear in the front end.  


3. After all, you can add these attributes to your products.

After choosing Product data as the Variable product, click on tab Attribute > choose the available value in box Custom product attribute as Color or Size then click Add button.

Then you can configure the value for each term there.

Finally, Click Save attribute and Update product and see it in the front end.


02:  For Custom Product Attributes

For all custom product attribute, it will only be applied for a product.  In this way, we need to create custom attribute > create variation > add product data.  

1. Create Custom Attribute in tab Attributes

Click on tab Attributes > Click Add on box Custom product attribute then add Name, Values, choose option Used for variations and click on Save attributes button.

After that, click on Publish product then the attribute will be updated in the product.
