The WooCommerce shop page displays variable products with a “Select Options” button by default. However, if you’re looking to change it to something else (such as “View Product“) then I’ve got a useful snippet you can put to use.

Of course you can change the text to anything you like, by simply replacing the relevant string inside the snippet below. Enjoy!

After installing this snippet, the WooCommerce shop variable products will show a “View Product” label instead of the default “Select Options” one. Easy peasy!

PHP Snippet: Change “Select Options” to “View Product” @ WooCommerce Shop / Category Pages

add_filter( 'woocommerce_product_add_to_cart_text', 'bbloomer_change_select_options_button_text', 9999, 2 );

function bbloomer_change_select_options_button_text( $label, $product ) {
	if ( $product->is_type( 'variable' ) ) {
		return 'View Product';
	}
	return $label;
}

Is There a (Reliable) Plugin For That?

If you’d love to code but don’t feel 100% confident with PHP, I decided to look for a reliable plugin that achieves the same result.

In this case, I recommend the WooCommerce Show Single Variations plugin. On top of “splitting” your variable products into simple products (and therefore with an “ADD TO CART” button on the shop page), you can also return variations as search results, filtered results, and much more.

But in case you hate plugins and wish to code (or wish to try that), then keep reading 🙂
