Are you still using dropdowns for your variable products?
Don’t you want to provide a more clear and natural way for your buyers to select product options?
Did you know that WooCombinator can turn your boring selects into clickable buttons?
WooCombinator is a plugin for WooCommerce.
This plugin turns the boring select elements of variable products to buttons.
Tested with latest WordPress (5.3.x) and WooCommerce (3.9.x) on 09/03/2020.
Updated on 3th October 2018 with version 1.0.7 now comes with 17 styles and 2 experimental transition effects to choose from.
What is a variable product?
A variable product is a standard product type in WooCommerce. A variable product has multiple attributes and the customer select one from each attribute.
For example a shoe has size and color attributes – the customer can select these parameters.
WooCombinator hides the select elements and renders buttons instead – but the controlling logic is still handled by WooCommerce.
You can set your own classes and/or select from the 17 pre-defined styles. Also you can write your own inline CSS styles (if there are no other option to include/edit a custom CSS file).
By default WooCombinator try to re-use the button element of your theme but maybe you will need some CSS tweaks.
