How to Get Attribute Values from WooCommerce

Table of Contents

Attribute values are used to customize the appearance and functionality of a website. They can be used to create interactive elements, manage product options, and many other things. If you own a website that uses WooCommerce, you may be wondering how to get attribute values. This guide will walk you through the process step-by-step.

What is an Attribute?

An attribute is a piece of data associated with an item on your site. For example, if you are selling clothes on your website, colour may be an attribute of each item—you could have multiple sizes of t-shirts in different colours available for purchase. Attributes can also include additional information such as fabric type or country of origin.

Using Attributes in WooCommerce

Attributes allow you to provide users with more specific information about each product or service you offer on your site. This helps customers make informed decisions about their purchases and makes it easier for them to find exactly what they’re looking for quickly and easily. To use attributes with WooCommerce, first log into your WordPress dashboard and navigate to “Products” > “Attributes”. Here you can add new attributes or edit existing ones by clicking the “Edit” link next to the name of the attribute you want to edit.

Getting Attribute Values from WooCommerce

Once your attributes are set up in WooCommerce, it’s easy to get their values using PHP code. You’ll need access to either your theme’s functions file (functions.php) or a custom plugin file (pluginname.php). Then, simply paste this snippet into either one:

$attribute_values = wc_get_product_terms( $product->id, ‘pa_<attribute name>’, array( ‘fields’ => ‘names’ ) ); // Replace <attribute name> with your actual attribute name! foreach ( $attribute_values as $value ) { echo $value; }

This code will loop through all the attribute values associated with a given product and print them out for display on your site! Note that if you’re using this code within a loop that iterates over multiple products on a page (e.g., related products), make sure to replace `$product` with the correct variable that corresponds with each individual product being iterated over in the loop (e.g., `$related_product`).


Utilizing attributes in WooCommerce allows website owners greater control over how they present their products or services online while providing users important information about each item they might want to purchase from the store. Getting attribute values is quick and easy thanks to some simple PHP code that can be added directly into themes or plugins files within WordPress Dashboard menu option “Appearance” > “Editor” then select template file functions.*php*. With just a few lines of code, owners can start taking advantage of all the benefits attributes offer!
