WooCommerce - Creating/editing a Payment Product (Simple Method)
Creating/Editing a Payment "Product" In WooCommerce
The payments for various actions in the Payments add-ons are connected with the virtual products created in the payment system.
There are two ways of creating the products allowing for the payments: the simple way, by doing it from inside the add-on, and the advanced way, by doing it from WooCommerce.We will cover the simple method in this documentation. Read about the advanced method.

Note on WooCommerce Product Fields
WooCommerce supports additional information, such as if the product is physical or not, its weight and shipment information. However, the only information that is relevant to the add-ons is the product's Name, Short Description, and Prices (Regular and Sale). Other data will not be fetched.
Method for Business Directory, Expert Directory, and Product Directory
Navigate to the Admin Dashboard → Plugin Name → Settings.
Click on the Payment Labels tab.
Here you can see the Easy Digital Downloads Product Association section near sections where it applies, such as payments for Pay-per-view plans and payments for adding new items.
Below: This is an example of how to create a WooCommerce product with Product Directory Payments:
In the section you have two options:
- Selecting the existing product - in this case, you just need to select it from the list.
- Creating a new product (described below)
All you need to do add a product is to fill two text fields:
- Name - Should be something informative for the users so they know what they're paying for.
- Price - Respects the currency set on WooCommerce. Note: inputting characters other than numbers will cause the product not to be created.
Then click on the Create new WooCommerce Product. The page will refresh and the new product will be automatically selected in the box.
