3. Setting individual product & variation lead times

The WooCommerce Lead Time plugin allows you set individual lead times per product, or even per variation. To set this, navigate to any product under Products in the WordPress admin to get to the Edit Product view.

Adding a product lead time

In the Product Data metabox, under the Inventory tab you will find a field to set the lead time for the product:

Setting the lead time here will take precedence over the global lead time, if you have one set in the main settings page.

Note: Your lead time will still only display for the stock statuses selected on the plugin  settings page under the ‘Display lead times for’ option.

Adding variation lead times

For variable products, you can set the lead time individually for each variation. Go to the Inventory tab in the Product Data section of the Edit Product screen, and click to edit a variation. You will see a lead time field for that variation:

WooCommerce variation lead time

If you do not set a lead time for a variation then when a user selects the variation, they will see the lead time for the overall product, if this is set. If there is no variation or product lead time then they will see the overall site lead time, if this is set.
