What is WooCommerce?
There are many e-commerce plugins for WordPress, but the most popular is WooCommerce. It boasts forty-eight million downloads, and this isn't a coincidence. But adding custom fields or extra product options is complicated. It requires the use of an add-on to get this done with ease.
Add WooCommerce custom fields to your products
With Formidable, you can add fields to WooCommerce products. If you have products variable products (e.g. sizes, colors, and other product variations) then you need to expand your WooCommerce input fields.
Want to add text fields? Additional price calculations or billing fields? With Formidable's WooCommerce plugin, it's all possible. Selling products is easy when customers have more product attributes to choose from.
Build your form however you would like, add a calculation to generate the total, and select your form in the sidebar box on the WooCommerce page. Then collect custom data when a product is added to the cart. You can even include variable pricing based on the options chosen in the form.

These traits played a role in Amazon's success. And they continue to improve their growth. Adding options with a product configurator can benefit your store when used properly.
Customizing your customers' options with a product configurator can add an all-in-one quality. It makes customers feel involved. And it helps create the frictionless experience they want. The configurators make providing subscriptions and including a variety of products a breeze.
Upselling with a product configurator
It's easier to sell additional products when a customer is already making a purchase. By adding related options to the product page, you could save them ordering again later. Conditional logic dropdown menus are an excellent tool for this.
For example, let's say you sold laptops. By adding options for a wireless mouse, extra battery, or laptop bag, you enable them to enhance purchases. If it sounds useful and relevant, they will buy additional options without much thought.
Our add-on gives you greater control than WooCommerce alone. Do you need to configure pricing options for advanced product choices? It can be done just by adding simple calculations. The add-on offers customers immediate visual feedback. They can see the price change as they select options.
The Formidable Forms configurator can assist you in tracking your inventory as well. You'll know when product varieties sell and how many are left. This will give you more knowledge about your customers' buying habits too.
Formidable gives you the ability to collect needed information from the buyer. These values can be sent to the cart or order confirmation emails. Your site will send emails or text messages to the customer after they place an order. MailChimp integration means you'll receive an alert when customers place orders. Do you need customers to upload design or image files to place their order? It's taken care of with Formidable Forms.
Nowhere else is there such a powerful, easy-to-use package of add-ons for WordPress. When you combine this add-on with the rest of what Formidable Forms has to offer, it's no contest.

Add WooCommerce custom fields, but keep this in mind
Keep in mind that too many options can be as harmful as too few. Business Insider wrote about the phenomenon. The test found that when presented with too many options, customers had trouble making decisions. They were less likely to buy anything.
Examine which options may be excessive. Focus on offering a few high-quality options. Adding options wisely is vital to your success. You can check how customers react to your forms (and more) by using Monster Insights.
