by | Feb 21, 2021 | E-commerce, SEO | 0 comments

If you have variable products on your WooCommerce store that have a lot of different variations and you wish to amend the price, it can be very time consuming to manually edit the price for each variation. For example, a single variable product such as a T-shirt may easily have 25 – 50 different variations related to its size and colour.

So imagine the frustration and time involved in editing the price of a T-shirt that has 5 different sizes and 5 different colours and you maybe have 20 t-shirts listed on your site!

In this blog, we help you change the price of all variations in WooCommerce product easily.

Instead of manually editing each variation – you can change the price of all variation in one go. Simply follow the steps below:

How to change the price of a variable product on WooCommerce: A step-by-step guide

For convenience, we have taken a T-shirt as the variable product and are going to increase its price by 5%.

Let’s get started.

This is the range of T-shirt price before the update.

Price before update

Step 1

  • Log in to your WooCommerce store’s dashboard
Log into your WordPress site

Step 2

  • On the dashboard, click products on the left panel
Step 2- select products

Step 3

  • Choose the product you want to edit
Pick the product to be edited

Step 4

  • Click the Variations tab from the Product data menu
Select Variations Tab

Step 5

  • When you expand the Add Variation dropdown list, you can see the changes that can be made to a product price under Pricing.
  • You can increase or decrease the price by a fixed amount or percentage.
  • You can set both regular price and sales price.

Step 7

  • Generally, we enter a value in the alert box (discount percentage/ offers) and save changes.
  • For example, if you want to increase a product’s price by a fixed value of $10, you can just enter 10 in the alert box as shown below.
  • Now, if you would like to increase the price of a product by a certain percentage you can enter the value with a % sign. Here we are going to increase the price by five percent. So just type 5% as shown below and press OK.

So, the 5% increase in price is applied to all variations in this category.
