Pricing of a Product with Variations

When it comes to a product with variations, the pricing model becomes more complex. This typically involves offering thesame base product with different options, such as size, color, or features.

Let's consider a simple example of pricing for variants of a product, such as T-shirts:

  • Variant Type: Color

    • Red
    • White

For this example, we can use the tiered pricing approach:

  • Red color T-shirt: $10
  • White color T-shirt: $12

WooCommerce provides a built-in way to add these options to a product page. This system consists of two basic features: 'attributes' and 'variations'.
Attributes in WooCommerce refer to the characteristics of a product that can be used for creating variations.
Variations are the specific combinations of attributes that create different versions of a product.

For this example:
Attribute: Color
Variations: Red, White

A second feature can be added to this product, for example:
Attribute: Size
Variations: Small, Medium, Large

To use variations in WooCommerce, you first need to set attributes.
