1. Adding a Product
Adding a simple product is a straight forward process that is not
very different from publishing a standard WordPress post. In the
Products menu click “Add Product”, you will be
presented with a familiar interface, and should immediately see where to
type the product title and full description.
Next is setting the Product Data tab. This is where the majority of the product data is input.
- SKU – stock keep unit, used to track products.
It must be unique for each product, and should be named so it does not
clash with post ID’s.
- Regular Price – The item’s main price.
- Sale Price – The item’s sale price. When adding a Sale Price, a “Sale” icon will automatically appear on your product image.
2. Product Variations
Variable products are a great feature of
WooCommerce for offering variations of your product with different
prices, stock and more. They can be used to offer variations of a
product, for example different sizes for a type of T-shirt. You can set
different properties and prices for each variation.
Set the product type: to add a variable product, first select the type ‘variable’ from the product type drop-down. The interface will change to reflect your selection.
Define variation attributes: on the
attributes tab add some attributes to your product. You can use global
attributes or define some custom ones specific for your product.
Add variations:Add variations: After saving your
product you can now begin to add variations, or link all possible
variations. To add a variation, click the ‘add variation’ button. A new
blank row will appear for your inputting of data.
3. Adding Product Galleries
Product galleries simply display all images attached to a product, with the Featured Image to be the primary image.
You can create a product gallery using the same method as adding a
featured image, rather than using the Product Gallery meta box instead.
Product thumbnails are the gallery thumbnails on your product details page (if you have a gallery).
Uploaded images will be resized to match your input value as
accurate as possible. For example, if your setting is 100×100 and you
upload a 300×600 image, it will be resized to 100×200.

5. Setting Product Image size
On the Appearance >> Customize
Select the WooCommerce >> Product Images settings you’ll see
three image dimension inputs. These are the dimensions we use for our
template product images.
Please remember that if you change these settings after uploading
product images you will need to regenerate your thumbnails within
WordPress for the changes to be applied to your current image. To do
this we recommend using the Regenerate Thumbnails plugin download here
Now that WooCommerce has been successfully installed and setup ,you
can start building the view of you shop and other components of the
