Would you like Pizza as per your choice or others?
Take this case – You want to order a pizza and you have all customization in your hands – select size, toppings, payment options. Place an order and within minutes, you would be munching that cheese-loaded piece.
Now, the thing is such customization options are possible using WooCommerce, thanks to the WooCommerce Product Add-Ons plugin.
WooCommerce Product Add-Ons plugin allows your customers to personalize products while they’re shopping on your online store. Add options via textboxes, dropdowns, text areas, checkboxes, custom price inputs, even sample images.
This is great. But what will you do if u want to manage these add-ons repeatedly in a few minutes and not hours? What if there are 100’s of products? Are you willing to lose your productive time?

Smart Manager now integrates with WooCommerce Product Add-Ons plugin
Managing product add-ons can become a time-consuming task if you go inside each of them to make changes as and when required.
That was one of the primary reasons to make Smart Manager compatible with WooCommerce Product Add-Ons plugin.
If you heard about Smart Manager for the first time, Smart Manager enables the user to accomplish all the WooCommerce store management tasks in a few minutes which took hours earlier.
Bulk update, inline edit, advanced search and a lot more…
Why Smart Manager is a must if you use WooCommerce Product Add-Ons plugin
1. One-page management using Excel-Like spreadsheet
Simply update all your add-ons data in one go. Smart Manager provides you an excel-like spreadsheet to make changes to your add-ons.
Be it changing prices or adding a personal message, adding fees or shipping options, you have full flexibility to edit the add-ons directly using Smart Manager.
No need to dig inside each product to make a change.
That was the time-saving feature I was talking about.
2. Search any item and get it instantly to make an update
Another Smart Manager feature that saves you time is ‘Search’. Instead of going through thousands of items, simply search using keywords. Smart Manager will fetch you desired results in a blink of your eye.
Simply make a change and that’s it.
3. Export add-ons data as CSV
Export all your add-ons data for future reference. You can also Export data based on date and search filters.
Some practical examples to see how Smart Manager can be useful for your Product Add-Ons
1. Add shipping options directly
Say, you want to provide three courier options for shipping on only 12 out of the 50 shoe varieties on your store.
So, instead of going through each of the shoes, simply use Smart Manager, search for the desired shoes and add shipping option there itself.
2. Upsell higher plans, support or warranty
This is great for subscription products as well as physical.
You want to upsell a higher plan at 20%; ask customers to pay an additional $10 for email support or $15 for both email and phone support. For physical products, you pitch an extended warranty for 2 years at a nominal price.
And to do this for each product one-by-one is not a smart option. Simply use Smart Manager’s Excel-like spreadsheet to add this upsell options directly.
3. Add gift wrapping option at an extra buck
To delight customers, you plan to add gift wrapping option for just an additional $1 for all the watches (say 120) available in your store.
Again, if you want to save time and not repeat that process for each and every watch; search for ‘watches’ in Smart Manager, select all watches and add gift wrapping.
All your watches will now display ‘Add gift wrapping for $1’ on their individual product pages.
4. Show customization options for mobiles, t-shirts, and other products
Remember the pizza example at the start? Similarly, you can add customization options to any of your products or even all your products using Smart Manager in a few minutes.
WooCommerce Product Add-Ons is a good option for adding product customizations and encouraging your customers to buy more.
But using Smart Manager to manage those add-ons is even better. You’ll surely thank Smart Manager for saving you time.
So, if you are using both Smart Manager and WooCommerce Product Add-Ons plugins, update to the latest version and get this compatibility.
And if you are new to Smart Manager,
