What is a Drop-Down Menu? and its Importances
A drop-down menu is a group of items that open when anyone clicks the button or its text. The customers can select an option from the displayed list.
The drop-down menu helps the customers to navigate easily. You can present a variety of choices (options) for your customers to select.
At first, there is only one option gets displayed on the menu. When a user clicks on that, the others will be displayed. You can either provide a single or several choices.
Based on the input, it gets displayed. If a customer clicks on a specific value, it is automatically present at the top (menu).

How to Add Drop-Down Menu in WooCommerce Product Pages?
Just follow the below given simple steps to add the drop-down menu to your WooCommerce product page.
Step 1: The Plugin Page
After activating the plugin, go to your WordPress backend (dashboard). You can find the Extra Product Addons below the WooCommerce section. Click that, and the Forms page opens, as shown below.
Step 2: Adding a New Product Form
After that, you can click on the Add New Form button to create your product form. You can add the title to your product form and then drag and drop the custom fields based on your product niche on the form builder.
Step 3: Creating the Product Form
I have created a form for a T-shirt (product) and added the relevant product fields. On this, I used the Select (Drop-Down) for the color, neck type, and size fields.
If I used Radio Buttons or others, it should occupy more space. So, I’ve used the Drop-Down menu.
Click the Publish button to save the form.
Step 4: Adding the Form to the Product
Then, on the Products page, go to the product you want to add to the created form. On that page, scroll down to the Product data section, where you can see the Extra Product Addons option.
Click that, the Select Form opens, and select the form you’ve created. Save the changes by clicking the Update button (positioned on the right side of the page).
Step 5: The Product Page
Finally, visit the product page of your site. You can see the product fields displayed on the page to serve the customers.
Now, your customers can simply hit the button to select the options they want without going through the page. As I said, you must provide the best shopping experience for your customers.
