How to Add WooCommerce Additional Variation Images & Videos

WooCommerce additional variation images & videos offer your product page visitors a quick preview of different angles and a detailed display of a product variation. 

What is the product variation? 

You may sell some products that are similar in design but different in size, color, materials, etc. The product variation or swatch feature enables you to list and display your similarly designed products of multiple colors, sizes, etc., in an organized way that is more likely to match customers’ choices.
