Can Woo Do...This?? (5 posts)

    Have tried searching the forum but I'm not sure of the correct terminology to use so I will try and describe what I'm after!

    Imagine I had a Tshirt for sale, it comes in S,M,L,XL, and Blue, Green, Black, Red, there is also an option for embroidery. Black embroidery is £1.20 extra, green embroidery is £1.50 extra, Red is £2.50 extra.

    My question is will WooCommerce handle all those choices for one product, with some choices carrying additional costs if selected?

    I'm hoping the answer is yes and could someone give me a link to a help file where it shows how to set this up.

    Looking forward to starting my first WooCommerce store... assuming it can do the above!!

    Many thanks

    I know you can do all of the color and size product variations, as a variable product. You can (and must, actually, I think) set the price for each variation combination.

    I've only set up one product so far that has a matrix of two variables (color and size) but it is here:


    I think I remember seeing something about a custom field that would let a user enter text that could be used for customization, like embroidery, but I didn't implement that myself ... someone else recommended a special plugin that does that:


    ... but I'm still wondering if it can't be done with just the basic plugin. I'll keep looking.

    Basic instructions for setting up variable products are located here:


    hope this helps.

    Thanks for that citynode.

    I've been reading and playing since I posted and have managed to set up a multiple variations, with different prices set on the variation properties.

    Still not quite there yet, but think I might be on to something!!

    Thanks for your input.

    I think I found it.


    From the main dashboard, Products -> Atributes, create a product attribute of type "Text" ... it at least suggests it is possible. I'm not sure how to add it to the product page completely, yet, but the text in that dialog makes me think it can happen.

    There seems to be a thread going here that talks about it, and they sound like ... it requires getting under the hood just a little bit
