How To Bulk Add Categories To Products In Woocommerce

If you weren’t aware, Woocommerce has the ability to do this built in!

You don’t need a plugin to bulk add categories to products in Woocommerce!

I spent a few minutes today looking for a plugin that could do this and was not able to find an answer. So I looked around Woocommerce itself and tada! it’s already there. So if you’re like me and had no idea this was a thing, this is for you.

If you have a lot of products and don’t want to do this manually (I had 200 products on a client website), follow this quick and simple guide. Seriously, it’s very simple.

  1. Go to the list of products in the backend of WordPress/Woocommerce.
  2. Select all of the products you want to add a category to.
  3. Above the table of products, there’s a dropdown named “Bulk actions”
  4. Choose “Edit” then hit “Apply”
  5. A new section will open up and let you choose which category (or other details) you want to add to all the products you selected.
