With the 'Van der Meer for WooCommerce' plugin, it is possible since version 1.0.6 to create product variations. With this you combine multiple products into 1 product with a choice of variety. Consider, for example, a bag of dog food of 200 grams, 1 kilo and 5 kilos. By combining these products, you have the product in your webshop where your customer can select the desired weight.
Go to the Settings of the 'Van der Meer for WooCommerce' plugin and click on Merge Products.
Wanneer je reeds producten geïmporteerd heb, krijg je een overzicht te zien van de mogelijke variaties. Wanneer er geen variaties gevonden zijn, zie je de melding 'No variations found!' staan.
Op de Merge Products pagina heb je een aantal opties voor het samenvoegen van producten:
Merge - Met deze knop worden alle geselecteerde variaties samen gevoegd tot een enkele product op je webshop.Add Variations - Met deze knop kun je nieuwe variaties toevoegen.Unselect all variations / Select all variations - Met deze knop kun je alle variaties deselecteren of alle variaties selecteren.
When you click on Add Variations, you will see a pop-up screen where you can add variations.
At Parent Product you look for the main product. You can add Variations on the basis of the information entered at Parent Product. For example, if you have an Antos product as Parent Product and you click in the empty field at Variations, then the Antos products will be selected for you. You then only have to specify the product you want to link. Of course you can scroll through the list for other brands and type of products.
Click Merge to merge the products. Once you clicked on this, the merge process will start and you will see a progress bar.
The progress bar is not shown in real time. To see the most recent progress status, you will need to refresh or change the page.
It can sometimes happen that the merging process gets stuck. In these cases you can stop the merging process.
Click on Click here to reset the merge process.
When the merge of the products is completed, you can recognize the products with product variations in your overview by the price range that is displayed.
When you open the product, you will see in the Product Data that the product is a 'Variable product'. If you open the Van der Meer tab, you will find sub-products in it, each with its own EAN code of the original product.
To adjust the price or product information of a product variation, you can click on the Variations tab.
Then you see on the right side click on the product line (for example # 12345 1.2KG) to see the product specifications.
You can then adjust the data of the relevant product variation, such as the price, stock quantity and weight. If the shipping or tax class differs from the main product, you can also adjust it here.
