If you sell mattresses, you might consider setting up a WooCommerce mattress configurator product to let customers customize their order. In addition to this, it makes it easy to charge for customization and add-ons such as different types of mattresses or fitted sheets.

A WooCommerce mattress configurator product prompts customers to enter the mattress size or dimensions and select a firmness rating. You can also sell add-ons (such as a fitted sheet or pillows) with the mattress and let customers choose which ones they’d like to add to their order.

A mattress configurator product is similar to customisable products like custom face masks or meal subscription services. Customers can personalize their products before placing their order.

In this step-by-step tutorial, we’ll show you how to set up a mattress configurator product in WooCommerce. You can view the demo product here.

How to create a WooCommerce mattress configurator product using WooCommerce Add-Ons Ultimate

To sell mattresses, you’ll need to set up a mattress configurator product in WooCommerce. For this, you’ll need to get the WooCommerce Add-Ons Ultimate plugin.

Using this plugin, you can create a product that customers can customise before proceeding to the checkout page to place their order. Customers will be able to personalize the mattress they’d like to purchase directly on the single product page.

Step #1: Create a WooCommerce product for the mattress

Start by creating a new WooCommerce product for the mattress configurator and giving it a suitable title. Since the total price of the product will depend on the customer’s selection, we want to set the WooCommerce product’s base price and hide the price label from the single product page.

This way, we can calculate the price of the mattress the customers want to purchase dynamically based on their specific selection.

The WooCommerce Product Add-Ons Ultimate plugin automatically calculates and displays the product’s price above the ‘Add to Cart’ button on the single product page.

Step #2: Create fields for creating custom mattresses

The next step is to create add-on fields for the WooCommerce mattress configurator product. For example, you might want to let customers select the mattress size or set the dimensions, choose a firmness rating, and give them the option to include a fitted sheet with their order.

Here’s how:

Mattress dimensions

Mattress length field
  1. Go to the ‘Product Add-Ons’ tab from the ‘Product data’ section
  2. Click the ‘Add Group’ button and then the ‘Add Field’ button
  3. Give the field a title (e.g. Length) and set the ‘Field Type’ to ‘Number’ using the dropdown
  4. Enter a ‘Field Price’ and tick the checkbox next to the ‘Multiply Price?’ option
  5. Tick the checkbox next to the ‘Required Field?’ option
  6. Enter a ‘Max Value’. Optionally, you can also set a ‘Default Value’

Repeat these steps to create a field for the product’s width and thickness.

  3. Click the ‘Add Option’ button and enter the different firmness ratings you’d like to offer as separate options
  4. Tick the checkbox next to the ‘Required Field?’ option
