Configuring WooCommerce Products that are both Physical and Digital
Recently I went through the process of building a new WordPress website for a client, complete with a small eCommerce (store) section. My client was selling books in both a digital and a physical format: certain books were downloadable PDFs, and others were only available in printed form. However, I ran into a small problem when he decided to sell just one of his products/books in both ways – in digital PDF form and in print. | WOOCOMMERCE DIGITAL AND PHYSICAL PRODUCTS
It took me a while to work out the kinks, but I finally did – and here are the instructions that I recorded along the way:
Configuring WordPress/WooCommerce products to be sold both digitally and physically
Look along with the left side menu of your WordPress dashboard, then click on Products:
There you should see a listing of all your products. Click on the specific product you would like to edit, then scroll down inside your editor until you see the Product data section (where all of the nitty-gritty product details are displayed).
Then change the product from a Simple product:
To a Variable product by changing the choice in the “Product data” drop-down menu:
Next click on Attributes, found in the box menu, along the left side:
Make sure “Custom product attribute” is selected in the drop-down menu, then click the “Add” button.
Name your custom attribute under “Name”, and add a short description in the “Value(s)” section:
Note: your two different values need to be separated by the vertical line symbol (“|”).
Make sure the options for “Visible on the product page” and “Used for variations” are checked, then click on the blue Save attributes button.
Next go into the “Variations” section (found along the left side of the Product data window), then next to the field where it says “Add variation” click the Go button, and choose an option from that drop-down menu:
To edit the details of your variable product, click on the “Expand” link over to the right of your screen:
In that expanded area, enter all of your price, stock, shipping, tax, and other information; then click the blue “Save changes” button.
Repeat the process to configure your virtual/downloadable product:
Then click again on the “Go” button next to the “Add variation” section to repeat this process for the digital, downloadable (or virtual) version of your product.
Below where it says “Downloadable files” click the “Add file” button to link to your digital product.
Fill in the Download limit and Download expiry fields if they apply in your situation and fill in the rest of the fields if applicable.
Click the blue Save changes button again. | WOOCOMMERCE DIGITAL AND PHYSICAL PRODUCTS
Scroll way up (outside of the Product data section) to the blue Update button and click that to save the product page itself.
Then, if desired click the “View Product” link to check out your changes:
You should now see a new Book Type option when viewing your product in your web browser (after you refresh your browser window). Of course “Book Type” in your case would be whatever you chose to name your custom attribute under “Name” (see details above). Read more. Click here!

“Quality in a product or service is not what the supplier puts in. it is what the customer gets out and is willing to pay for. A product is not quality because it is hard to make and costs a lot of money, as manufacturers typically believe.” -Peter Drucker
