You create items to sell via Products > Add New. Clicking on it takes you to this familiar screen
At the top of the screen, you can give your product a title and description. This works the same way as creating a post or page, including that you can use the formatting options and add images and other media. All of this will appear on the main product page.
There are also a few other options that are very similar to what you find for posts and pages:
If you have ever worked with WordPress before, all of this should pose no challenge to you. However, there are a few additional settings.
2. Configure Product Data
You find the product data below the main editor window. Filling in this information is mandatory for your shop to work.
The first choice you need to make is for the type of product you are selling:
This happens via a drop-down menu at the top. Depending on your choice, you will have different configuration options below.
In addition, anything entered under Product short description will show up under the product title.
Once you are done and have saved, you can find your new product in the list under All Products.
3. Other Product Settings
There are a few more items under Products that are pretty easy to understand.
Categories and tags should be clear. Note that in WooCommerce you can add thumbnail images to product categories.
Shipping Classes allows you to create product groups by shipping and can be used for calculating shipping costs by class.
In Attributes, you may create sizes, colors, and other characteristics and apply them to products to create variations.
