Woocommerce product addon linking

John Scarborough asked 3 weeks ago

Hi there, everyone, I have searching on the net for my problem but I can't seem to find an answer.

I have a product, a chair SKU 1234
I have options for that product like, back pad SKU 2345, Pad SKU 345, and Side pod sku 456.
But I want to link these other products to that original product when the order comes through, so the full details of the extras come through as well?

Can anyone tell me how to do this?

Thanks Heaps John

Hi Darrel,
Thanks for the reply, I will try to explain a different way.
I have a product, a chair SKU 1234
I have options for that product like, back pad SKU 2345, Seat Pad SKU 345, and Side pod sku 456, which I have setup on the product page as optional extras no worries.
But I also sell these items separately without that chair as as separate item, when I try to add them as another product, it won’t let me because it has the same SKU Number as the add -on the the original chair.

Is there a way I can link a product to an add-on for a another product? or is there a plugin that will do this?
So I want a product for sale in the store on its own and also as a optional extra for another product, using the same SKU number.

Cheers John

why dont you install the woocommerce product addon plugin, offer the products as an additional addons ( see my woocommerce product addon tutorial) than also list them as seperate products like usual
