Selling variable products? It’s likely WooCommerce doesn’t handle your variations how you want it to. It hides away variations, such as colours and sizes, on single product pages – with barely any control over their display.
That’s where WooCommerce Show Single Variations comes in: this plugin gives you complete control over how, and where, variations display in your store. You can easily show product variations on your shop page, with clear images and their own add to cart buttons.
Your customers can see exactly what your products look like and what options are available, without having to dig around for details.
With WooCommerce Show Single Variations, you can:
- Show WooCommerce variations on the shop page.
- Increase chances of a successful sale when filtering products.
- Choose where you’d like each variation displayed: catalog, filtered listings, and/or search results.
- Enable variations to be added to cart directly from the catalog.
- Show specific product variations in your featured product listings.
- Customise your variation titles.
- Hide the parent product from listings or just when filtering.
Picture you own a clothing store selling t-shirts online. WooCommerce Show Single Variations lets you easily display variations alongside each other, so your customers can see everything you have on offer.
In just a few clicks you could display three different colour t-shirts sharing the same design – each with multiple sizes and different stock counts.
Whatever your WooCommerce store is selling, this plugin works seamlessly.
Our customers see results: a better user experience, improved search presence, and more sales. Your store can enjoy these benefits too by using WooCommerce Show Single Variations.

When I first set up my online store almost five years ago I realised that while the default variable product option for WooCommerce is great, not being able to display these individual variations on the front end in my store catalog was far from ideal and could limit sales.
Comic books are often released with variant covers, these covers are generally completely different from the standard ones and more often than not have limited release amount and different prices to the standard covers.
The Show Single Variations plugin allows me to show all available options at once, allowing customers to add them to their cart directly from the catalog view.
The difference in variable product sales was immediately noticeable. I’m a big believer that less required clicks makes for more sales and this plugin goes a long way to prove it.
Being able to add variations to cart from the catalog view, rather than having to ‘Select options’, load the products main page and then chose which variation(s) the customer wants has led to a dramatic increase in sales.
I would recommend the Show Single Variations plugin to anyone who uses variable products in their WooCommerce store. For me being able to show all variations on the front end is an absolute must.
I had created a pottery site and many designs were not different enough to warrant their own separate product listings, so it made sense to add them as product variations.
A few hours of adding products later, I realized, to my great dismay, product variations do not display in WooCommerce category lists, shop and search pages.
I was on the verge of preparing to muscle through breaking out all of my product variations to separate listings, until a WooCommerce support person steered me in the direction of a nice little plugin called “Show Single Variations”.
With this plugin installed, all I have to do now is select the relevant options inside the product variation’s drop-down to have that product variation display on product listing pages.
If you have a WooCommerce store with lots of products with variations that you don’t want hidden from shop displays and other listings, the elegant “Show Single Variations” is going to make you a very happy camper.
As our product pallet is not huge, we needed a way to show visitors on the shop page the various options in one view. WooCommerce Show Single Variations offers a practical solution to show the individual product variations with the relevant image and title on the shop page.
Not only could we differentiate the product through images, but also through the text; for example, “Stand-up Candle Holder – Brass” and “Stand-up Candle Holder – Nickel”.
I see two main advantages to using the plugin; user experience and product management.
Users today look at pictures first. If they cannot instantly see what’s available, they will most likely not take the time to click and learn more about the product. With Show Single Variations, customers can browse the shop page and be aware of all the product variations for a single product before clicking on it to learn more.
It is far easier to manage our products in the backend as a single variable product, rather than a single product for all possible variations.
I’d recommend WooCommerce Show Single Variations to anyone who works with variable products that have noticeable physical differences. In the example of our candle holder, many people don’t like gold colored metals and prefer silver. If the visitor only saw the brass version on the shop page, they’d rarely click on it as they may not realise there are further options available.
WooCommerce Show Single Variations simply makes sense.
After working with hundreds of WooCommerce extensions that are slow and bloated, it's been a pleasure working with Iconic. The code is clean. The features are focused. And best of all, they help grow your store's revenue!
Before buying a premium WooCommerce plugin, you usually weigh its code quality, performance, support responsiveness, and compatibility. Thankfully, with Iconic's quality products, there's no need to worry at all.
I love this plugin – the best I can recommend. If you have product variations and want to show all of them in the product overview this is the perfect solution. Thank you so much!
Words cannot express how much I love this plugin for my site. I am a small batch maker who creates products with variations like color, finish, etc. Being able to create a single listing and show variants as separate products really helps my clients visualize finished goods without me having to spend extra hours crafting copy for SEO, managing separate instances when details change, etc. Iconic ROCKS!!!
Well worth the investment! This plugin helps us showcase our many variations in ways that were previously not possible.
Will it work with my theme?
Yes, WooCommerce Show Single Variations will work with any well-coded WooCommerce theme.
Will my variations show as related products?
Yes, if they are set to visible in the catalog.
How is this different from your other plugin, WooCommerce Linked Variations?
The two plugins give a similar final result, but each would be used for a different scenario.
If you have variations of a product with the same (or very similar) titles and descriptions, then WooCommerce Show Single Variations is for you. Google would only index the parent product, and you won't be flagged for duplicate content.
If you have variations with different titles and descriptions, you may find WooCommerce Linked Variations better. Each variation (single product page, in this case) would then be indexed separately and will give you more results in Google.
Will this plugin affect my SEO negatively?
No. WooCommerce uses canonical links for variable products, which means Google will be given only 1 official URL for the parent product and all of its variations.
Can I still use the plugin when my licence expires?
Can I use my licence in a development environment?
Do you offer refunds?
Is this a lifetime licence, or will it stop working after 1 year?
Why do I need a subscription?
Will it work with my theme?
Will my subscription renew automatically?
