How Do I Bulk Edit WooCommerce Simple Products into Variable Products?

To bulk upload WooCommerce simple products into variable products, create an import file with your variations and define an existing simple product as the parent. Upload the new variations using the I'm importing new variations to existing products option.

Steps to Bulk Edit WooCommerce Simple Products into Variable Products

  1. Create an import file with the new variations to add. See example files here.
  2. Go to All Import › New Import, select WooCommerce Products and New Items as the import type.
  3. In the Drag & Drop screen, map the product title, price, and SKU.
  4. Also, choose Variable product as the product type and use the I'm importing new variations to existing products option in the Variations tab.
  5. Target the existing simple product using either its SKU or title.
  6. In the Attributes tab, map all attributes for the new variations as required.
  7. Run the import, and the simple product will be converted into a variable product.

How to Create A Valid Import File to Convert a Simple Product into a Variable Product

The import file needed to convert your simple products into variable products will require a couple of things:

  • The product title or SKU for the simple product to convert (to match that product)
  • The title for the variations (it would be the same title)
  • A unique SKU for each variation
  • The attributes of the different variations, along with all other details

For example, say you have the Soflyy T-Shirt simple product with an SKU of 999-X and a cost of $10 USD per t-shirt. You were previously selling a unique size and all in the same color.

However, you now have more colors to offer, so you want to convert that product into a variable product with color variations.

To do so, you would need to create a CSV file like this:

That's it! You can follow the instructions provided above to add the variations and create this new variable product.
