Now, we need to hide a few things so that the WooCommerce price matrix will give an excellent look on the product page.
5.1. Hide the Page Length
First, we need to hide the ‘Show [x] products’ dropdown list. To hide it select the “Hidden” from the dropdown.
5.2. Hide the Search Box
As we are displaying the price matrix on the product page so I have hidden the search box so that users won’t be able to search within this. To hide the search box select “Hidden” from the dropdown.
Similarly, I have hidden the “Product Totals” and “Pagination Buttons” too. And also make sure that the “Reset” button is disabled.
3. Enable the Bulk Variations
Now, expand the Bulk Variations tab by clicking on the (▾)

Once you open the Bulk Variations tab, you’ll see a toggle button from where you can enable the variations grid instead of the default table. To enable it, click on the toggle button.

2. Select Vertical and Horizontal Attributes
From these toggle buttons, you need to select the attributes. You can select vertical attribute and horizontal attribute.
I have selected “Size” as the Vertical Attribute and “Color” as the Horizontal Attribute. You might have created different attributes on your store so there’s no need to worry, you can select the attributes you have created.
4. Save the Changes
Once all the settings are done, click the green “Save Changes” button at the top right corner of your screen to save all the settings.
5. Set Woosuite Product Table as the Variation Table
To set the Woosuite product table as the default shop page layout, go back to the plugin’s General Settings by clicking on the back arrow at the top.
Now select the table you just created, from the Enable Variation Table dropdown and click on the Save Changes button to save the changes.
6. Final Results
Now let’s visit the product page of any of the variable products on the store. As you can see from the screenshot below, the prices of all the variations are displayed in a matrix.
Now users can also select multiple variations at a time and add them to their cart easily by clicking on the Add all to Cart button.
Note: Add all to cart button is by default enabled. If you want to change this text, you can change it by going into the “Bulk Add to Cart” tab.
