How to add a new product using WooCommerce

From this tutorial, you will learn how to add a new product using WooCommerce plugin.

The process of adding a new product to an online shop has become easier thanks to WooCommerce. You don’t need to have any coding skills or to hire a developer to code for you. Let’s walk through the process of creating a new product in WooCommerce.

Adding a new product

Step 1 — Firstly, log in to the WordPress Dashboard and proceed to the Products > Add New tab.

Step 2 — Then, type the product’s title into the Product name field and add the description to the field below.

Step 3 — After that, proceed to the Product data block. Here select the type of your future product from the Product data dropdown.

Step 4 — Afterward, set the Regular (the normal price) and Sale (the discounted price that can then be scheduled for certain date ranges) prices for a product.

Step 5 — Later, switch to the Inventory tab where you can manage the stock for the product individually, allowing customers to add only the certain number of products to the cart, etc.
