Bulk edit products with variations should be standard in Woocommerce!!
I am more than surprised a good e-commerce such as this had no abbility to bulk edit products with variations. An e-commerce that says it can handle thousands of product with ease, can not do without this option. Please add this soon!
For core this doesn’t scale well, and how it works well would be very subjective. We prefer the CSV/smart manager extensions for this type of management.
We will however be looking at improved bulk management tools within variable products which can work well.
It's been 4years since this topic was posted and It's painful to say that I'm actually going with Magento. I have 3 clients two of them have a WC store, with over 17K products combine, one of the stores has 214 Out Of Stock Items, we had to manually restock them in variations, another one has 147 out of stock...this is torture!
Absolutely agree. The functionality of Smart-manager should be standard in a good system, without paying extra $100 to 3rd party developer. How did they think people should work with WooCommerce if there are more than 5 items?
Complete agreement here. Without this, WooCommerce scalability is seriously limited. Thanks for considering it.

I have 2 customers that will go with magento now, only because this feature is not included. The plugin that fixes this issue don't work for my clients as they need the option to click the products the want the changes on and to be able to set the sale price as a percentage of the regular price as you at the moment can we simple products.
Add bulk edit custom attributes to that as well .... should be standard.
Thanks matt that seems to have done the trick
There is one plugin that does this here:
