The brilliance of the Bulk Table Editor’s integration with WooCommerce Brands lies in its simplicity and effectiveness. Here’s a step-by-step guide to adding brands to your products:

  1. Locate the Brands Column: Once you’ve enabled the brand integration, navigate to the Editor Home of the Bulk Table Editor. Here, you’ll find the newly added ‘Brands’ column, ready for your input.
  2. Select Your Products: Before adding brands, you may want to narrow down which products need updating. You can filter or search to find a specific selection of products. Alternatively, you can select products directly if you’re aiming to update in bulk. Remember, if no specific selection is made, all visible products will be adjusted.
  3. Add Brands: In the ‘Select Brands’ dropdown, choose the brands you wish to associate with your selected products. After selection, utilize the bulk select option below to ‘Add Brands.’ This action will link the chosen brands to every visible (or specifically checked) product/variation on the page.
  4. Save Your Changes: After adding the brands, a readonly input displaying the brands’ slugs will appear as a confirmation of your selection. To finalize, simply save your changes, and voilà – the brands will be added to the products on the current page.

By following these steps, you’ll not only enhance the visibility and organization of your products but also leverage brand recognition to boost customer engagement and satisfaction.

Practical Use Cases

The integration of WooCommerce Brands with the Bulk Table Editor opens up a plethora of opportunities for store owners. Here are a few scenarios where this feature can significantly impact your eCommerce strategy:

Tips for Optimizing Use

To make the most out of the Bulk Table Editor’s brand integration feature, consider the following tips:

This can provide valuable insights into customer preferences, allowing you to make informed decisions about future stock selections and marketing strategies.
