Change WooCommerce Product Order

Ordering WooCoomerce products within the product catalogue (Shop, Category and tag pages) is quite straightforward.

Set Sort Order in the WordPress Customiser

  • Navigate to Appearance > Customise
  • Select WooCommerce
  • Select Product catalogue
  • In Default product sorting, select your order preferences, there are several options, most of which are self explanatory

What does "Default sorting (Custom ordering + name)" mean?

Under Product data > Advanced is an entry field: Menu order. By default this is set to 0 (zero).
  • Any products with the menu order set to 0 will appear first, ordered alphabetically by Product Title.
  • Remaining products will be ordered by menu order
