Please make sure to buy the right plugin for WordPress (posts, pages, custom post types) and WooCommerce (products). Both plugins can also be installed at the same time.

How the plugin works is explained (see also the video):

  1. Use the filter and search function via "Expand Filters" and make a preselection (optional!)
    1. Preferred way of working: Show all products and use the "Selection Manager" to mark special products
  2. Click “Get products” and leave variants active
  3. Use "Show/Hide Fields" to display required table columns
    1. For custom fields, click on “Find Custom Fields” below the table and display the field/s as column/s
  4. Editing within the fields (like Excel)
  5. Perform bulk edits via "Bulk Edit" (if required)
  6. Save after change "Save Changes"

Note: If you make a mistake, marked lines can also be reset.

Have fun with the plugins and enjoy editing the products in the shop using the simple table.
