Now you can use the WordPress Dashboard for adding products to your WooCommerce store. Follow these steps to add a simple product in WooCommerce:

  • Log in to WordPress.
  • In the left-hand menu, click Products, which will expand and give additional
  • options.
  • Click Add New in the expanded Products menu.
  • Fill-out the Product name field with the name of your product.
  • In the large text box, enter a Description of the product.

In the Product data section, complete the following:

  • Check the virtual or Downloadable box, if either applies to your product.
  • On the General tab set a price for the product in the Regular price box.
  • Look through the remaining tabs and complete any parts that are relevant to the
  • product.
  • Next, enter a Product short description, which will typically appear next to an image
  • of the item on your store.
  • On the right-hand side of the page, in the Product categories section, check the
  • box for any related categories.
  • Note-If you have not already added a section, then click Add a sector to do so
  • Click the Save Draft or Publish button near the top-right.
  • You can make changes to the product’s settings at any time.
