Show product variations on shop page
I would love to have the possibility to show product variations (with their own image) as separate products on the product listing pages (main shop page, category page, etc). That way visitors would be able to see the right product images when they use the layered nav filters.
Let's say I have a product that is available in both blue and white. I dont want to create two separate simple products, as I want the customer to be able to see and choose between the available colors on the product page. So I create a variable product using a color attribute, and assign a product image to each variation. But since the visitor only see the product once (the featured product image showcasing one of the availabe colors) on product listing pages, he might miss that it's available in another color. Or if he uses the layered nav filters to view products in the other color, he will still only see the product's featured image, which might be a bit confusing.
Please add the ability to show variations as separate products (but leading towards the same product page). I would definitely be willing to pay for it as an extension, if it isn't something that will be added to WooCommerce. I am really happy with all the other features of WooCommerce, but might have to change to a different e-commerce solution just cause I cant find a solution to this as I need it for my ongoing project.
This can be done with extensions, rather than core. There is also the option of using simple products instead which may make more sense.
Yes this shuld be a standart in Woo!
Is there a plugin that can manage this?

Guys... That's not funny - I'm willing to pay A LOT for just this one... desperate here !
Need this badly
Most ecommerce platforms have this ability built within them as a standard feature. How comes woocommerce is still lacking it.
This should be a standard feature...

Showing *all* product variations wouldn't be too hard..... a quick filter on `pre_get_post`. I think the tricky part would be picking the variations to show. If you had T-shirts in Red and Blue and in Large and X-Large, how do you decide whether to show the Red Large or the Red X-Large? Would a checkbox in the admin work?
