The importance of adding a weight parameter into Woocommerce product addons

I have anywhere from from 5-8 selection fields PER PRODUCT with options (values) ranging from 10 – 20.

I can’t use variations because it would result in thousands of variations across all my products. This is unmanageable because of everything being in one table in the database. Furthermore, his would result in an extremely long query which slows the front-end and back-end of the website massively. Finally, this many variations would be extremely cumbersome to manage and update on the back-end.

I simply need a the ability to assign a WEIGHT to each product option / value.

    Composite Products will not work for my business. Product Addons works perfectly except I can’t assign a weight to each value.

    Hiya! Thanks for taking the time to write this feature request.

    Product Add-Ons are product attributes and not products on their own, so they don’t have product properties like dimensions, weight or SKU.

    If you want to build a product customizer that is made of other products in the store that contains weight, then perhaps Composite Products is a better solution for you: https://woocommerce.com/products/composite-products/
