Variation Max for WooCommerce


Update the default number of variations allowed in WooCommerce.

You no longer need to edit wp-config.php directly which reduces the chance of causing errors on your WordPress site.

Another added bonus is that the option is located intuitively in the
WooCommerce > Settings > Advanced > Variation Max tab so that users can easily and quicly locate the option.

This plugin filters WC_MAX_LINKED_VARIATIONS, the constant that holds the variation max value.

Ordered list:

  1. Edit variation maximum easily
  2. Less error prone than editing wp-config.php
  3. Intuitively placed in WooCommerce > Settings > Advanced > Variation Max
