Creating Brands in Product Brands for WooCommerce
To add a brand, you need to go to Products >> Product Brands. Under the tab, you will see “Add New Product Brand”. Here you can add your brands; and once you are done, the brand will be listed in the list right beside it. This works the same as adding product attributes, categories or tags.
You can add the brand name, slug, description and assign a brand logo. Also, you can edit or delete any of your previous brands added.
Below is all your listed brands on the list.
Assign Brand to Product
To assign a brand to your product, you need to go to Products >> Add Products, or edit an existing product. Under the product add/edit screen, you will see the Product Brand tab on the left side of your page.
After clicking the publish button you will see the result on your WooCommerce web store. The image below represents how your WooCommerce online store will look like with the featured brand.
Including products under certain brands and those brands in the navigation can enhance the user experience of a customer on your site. If you have a WooCommerce store that offers multiple brands, then this strategy will be useful.
And that’s not all if you want your WooCommerce store to stand alone in the market, here is a list of my top favourite WooCommerce Plugins of 2016.
