How to Add Product Specific Swatches

If you want to use swatches for a specific product only or override the styling for your global swatches, then you can do so with WooCommerce Attribute Swatches.

To add product-specific swatches, take the following steps:

Note: This guide presumes you already have a variable product set up and saved with attributes already assigned.

  1. From your WordPress dashboard, go to Products > All Products and click to edit the product you want to edit or add custom swatches to.
  2. Scroll down to the Product data section of the Edit Product page and click the Swatches tab.
