Using Product Condition For WooCommerce

Product Condition for WooCommerce allows you to set a condition (new, used, like new, etc.) for all of the products on your site. The settings for Product Condition for WooCommerce lets you set a single “default” product condition for all of your products. It also lets you set a unique condition for each individual product, which overrides the default product condition.

For example, if your site sells products that are mostly in “new” condition,  you would set the default product condition to “new”. However, it is possible that from time to time you might have a few products that are in “used” or some other condition. In that case you can set the “used” condition on the specific products that are used.

Setting a Default Product Condition ↑ Back to top

Product Condition for WooCommerce Main Settings Page

To set a default product condition, navigate to WooCommerce > Settings > Products tab > Product condition sub tab.

On this settings page there is only one field that should be set, which is the default product condition. Select the option that makes the most sense for your store. The option you select should be the product condition that the majority of your store’s products will be in.

Please note that you can change this setting at any time and any product that does not have an overriding product condition set will be updated to reflect this default product condition.

Setting a Product Condition for Individual Products ↑ Back to top

Quick Edit Product Condition for Individual Products ↑ Back to top

Product Condition for WooCommerce Quick Edit

To quickly set a product condition for an individual product, you can utilize the Quick Edit link under the product name on the Products > All Products page. This means you don’t have to open every product individually following the steps above just to edit the product’s condition.

After clicking on the Quick Edit link, you will see a screen that looks similar to the screenshot above. Near the bottom you will see a drop down menu next to the Product Condition label.

Select the product condition you wish to set for that product, then click the Update button.

Bulk Edit Product Conditions for Multiple Products ↑ Back to top

Product Condition for WooCommerce Bulk Edit

To quickly set a product condition for multiple products at once, you can use the bulk edit feature. This way if you have many products that all have the same product condition, you can edit them all at once.

  • Navigate to the Products > All Products page.
  • Check the box next to all of the products you want to change the product condition for.
    • Note: All of the products you select will get the same product condition. If you need to set several product conditions for different products, you should repeat this process for each condition.
  • Select “Edit” from the Bulk Actions drop down menu at the top or bottom of the page. Then click the Apply button.
  • Select the product condition you wish to set for that product, then click the Update button.

Where is the Product Condition Displayed? ↑ Back to top

The product condition is shown on the single product page in two places. One is readily visible to your customers, and the other is designed for search engines to read in a structured format so they can understand the general condition of your products.

What the Customer Sees ↑ Back to top

The output may look different depending on the theme you are using. Product Condition for WooCommerce hooks into the end of the product meta section to add the product condition, which will look like the section in the red box below. Please note that the red box is just for illustration purposes. The red box is not a part of the plugin and will not be displayed on your site.

What Search Engines See ↑ Back to top

 

Search engines look for what is known as Schema markup, or structured data. Part of this markup for products includes the product’s condition.

There are four product conditions that are expected to be included in this markup, which include:

  • NewCondition
  • UsedCondition
  • RefurbishedCondition
  • DamagedCondition

Product Condition for WooCommerce provides over 20 different product conditions. In order to display a result that search engines are expecting, we group each of the product conditions included in the plugin with one of the above product conditions. Those groupings include:

  • NewCondition
    • Brand new
    • New
    • New other
    • New with box
    • New with defects
    • New with tags
    • New without box
    • New without tags
  • UsedCondition
    • Acceptable
    • Certified pre-owned
    • Good
    • Like-new
    • Pre-owned
    • Used
    • Very good
  • RefurbishedCondition
    • Manufacturer refurbished
    • Remanufactured
    • Retread
    • Seller refurbished
  • DamagedCondition
    • Damaged
    • For parts

Examples:

  • If your product’s condition is set to “Brand New”, the markup will show NewCondition.
  • If your product’s condition is set to “Good”, the markup will show UsedCondition.
  • If your product’s condition is set to “Remanufactured”, the markup will show RefurbishedCondition.
  • If your product’s condition is set to “For parts”, the markup will show DamagedCondition.
