Link directly to a specific WooCommerce product variation using get variables -yoursite.com/your-single-product/?size=small&color=blue

This is useful if you want to send an email to customers and send them directly to a specific variation without them having to enter it in themselves.

Usage/Examples:

Attach: ‘?[variation_name]=[variation_value]‘ to the end of your product link to have the variations automatically appear on the user’s screen.

  • mysite.com/product/happy-ninja/?color=blue
  • mysite.com/product/happy-ninja/?color=blue&size=small (additional variations should be separated by ‘&’)
  • mysite.com/product/happy-ninja/?color=blue+green (where the variation value is “Blue Green” with the space replaced by a ‘+’)

Features:

  • No configuration needed, just install and start using
  • Supports an infinite number of variations
  • Fails gracefully, if the option or value doesn’t exist, the default value will appear instead
  • Default selected variations work if no product is specified in url
  • 100% case insensitive
  • Works with any variation settings you have ie. custom images, prices etc.
