Google Shopping needs you to include a few additional product attributes if the products fall under the category ‘166 – Apparel & Accessories‘.
These attributes are as follows:
But, WooCommerce doesn’t provide fields to input these data by default.
With WPFM, you will be able to enable extensive custom fields for these important product attributes into your WooCommerce products.
Follow the steps below to enable the custom fields for these important product attributes into your WooCommerce products.
*Make sure you have the Pro version and license of the plugin activate.
1. Go to Dashboard > Product feed > Settings
On top, you will see a few tabs.
2. Click on the Controls tab to see more useful features.
3. Here, you will find the option called “Add Detailed Product Attribtues“. Enable it.
4. Once enabled, you will be able to find the following custom fields for important product attributes added to your products:
These custom fields will be added under the Product data section when editing a product.
However, there will be a slight difference in where the fields are based on the product type.
For a simple product, the fields will be under a menu called WPFM Custom Fields. But for a variable product, these fields will be added within each variant since each variant usually has unique values for these product attributes.
Here’s step-by-step instructions to find the fields for each product type.
1. Go to Dashboard > Products > All Products and edit a simple product.
2. Scroll down to the Product Data section.
3. Here, you will see that there is a tab called WPFM Custom Fields. Click on it.
As you can see, it’s a simple product. So all the custom fields are added under the WPFM Custom Fields tab.
1. Go to Dashboard > Products > All Products and edit a variable product.
3. Now, go to the Variations tab and you will find all the variants of this product listed there.
5. Click on a variant and scroll down to find the custom fields added.
That’s it. You can now input the values in the respective fields, and then use them when generating product feed.
Once you have inputted the values in the custom fields and saved them, you will be able to assign these values for attributes when generating product feed.
Simply click on the value for an attribute and look for the field names of the respective custom fields to assign the values.
For every custom field, there is a value tag that you need to assign.
For example, if you use the custom field to assign the Color attribute, then you need to choose the value tag ‘wpfm product color‘.
Likewise, as mentioned, there are unique field names or tags that you need to choose for the rest of the unique identifiers as well. Here’s the list:
Here’s how it looks when I use the custom field for Color and assign the value in the feed attribute:
Now that you know how to use these custom fields, you can use them effectively to add important detailed product attributes to your products and generate accurate product feed.
