    • Regular Price – Item’s normal/regular price
    • Sale Price – Item’s discounted price that can then be scheduled for certain date ranges. The sale expires at 11:59pm of the specified end date
  2. Tax
    • Tax status – Taxable / Shipping only / None
    • Tax class – Choose which tax class should be applied

Inventory section

The inventory section allows you to manage stock for the product individually and define whether to allow back orders and more. It enables you to sell products and allow customers to add them to the cart to buy.

Enable Stock Management must be selected in Products Inventory Settings; otherwise, only the ‘Stock status’ option is visible in the Product Data Inventory box.

Options when stock management at product level is disabled. You are responsible for updating the Stock Status.

Options when stock management at product level is enabled.

  1. Enter the Stock Quantity in field, and WooCommerce auto-manages inventory and auto-updates Stock Status as Stock, Out of Stock or On Backorder.

  2. Dimensions – Length, width and height for the product.

Related/Linked Products section

Using up-sells and cross-sells, you can cross promote your products. They can be added by searching for a particular product and selecting the product from the dropdown list. You can add multiple products by selecting them one by one:

Up-sells are displayed on the product details page. These are products that you may wish to encourage users to upgrade, based on the product they are currently viewing. For example, if the user is viewing the coffee product listing page, you may want to display tea kettles on that same page as an up-sell.

Cross-sells are products that are displayed with the cart and related to the user’s cart contents. As an example, if the user adds a Nintendo DS to their cart, you may want to suggest they purchase a spare stylus when they arrive at the cart page.

Advanced Options

  1. Purchase note – Enter an optional note to send the customer after they purchase the product.
  2. Menu order – Custom ordering position for this item.
  3. Enable Reviews – Enable/Disable customer reviews for this item.

Product short description

Add an excerpt. This typically appears next to product imagery on the listing page, and the long description appears in the Product Description tab.

Taxonomies/Categories

On the right-hand side of the Add New Product panel, there are product categories in which you can place your product, similar to a standard WordPress post. You can also assign product tags in the same way.

Product images

You can add a main product image and a gallery of images.

Setting catalog visibility options and feature status

In the Publish panel, you can set Catalog Visibility for your product.

  1. Shop and search – Visible everywhere, shop pages, category pages and search results.
  2. Shop only – Visible in shop pages and category pages, but not search results.
  3. Search only – Visible in search results, but not in the shop page or category pages.
  4. Hidden – Only visible on the single product page – not on any other pages.

You can also set whether the product is promoted in product categories, up-sells, related products as a Featured Product. For example, you could tick the Featured box on all bundles you sell.

Changing the currency for the products.

Prices shown in US Dollars. You can convert to your own currency after selecting a product.
