How to Change The Catalog ‘Add to Cart’ Button to ‘Select Options’

By default, with Show Single Variations installed, your new individual variations are shown with a ‘Add to cart’ button below them. 

However, in some cases, you might want to change this ‘Add to Cart’ button to ‘Select Options’. This will indicate to your customers that there are more options available for your product.

This can be changed for each individual product.

To make the change, take the following steps:

  1. In your WordPress dashboard, go to Products > All Products and select the variable product you want to edit.
  2. Scroll down to the Product Data section of the page (usually found below the main text/product description area).

  2. Click the checkbox next to this option to change Add to Cart to Select Options.
