How do I change the default sort in WooCommerce?

Last updated on September 24, 2022 @ 10:17 pm

Changing the default sort in WooCommerce is simple, but it can be a little hidden. To change the default sort, you first need to open the WooCommerce settings page. On the left-hand side of the page, you will see a tab called “Sorting”. Under this tab, you can choose between several different sorting options.

PRO TIP: If you are using WooCommerce to manage your online store, you may want to change the default sort order for your products. By default, WooCommerce sorts products by price, from lowest to highest. However, you can change this setting to sort products by name, date, popularity, or rating.

To change the default sort order in WooCommerce:

1. Go to WooCommerce > Settings in your WordPress dashboard.
2. On the Settings page, go to the Products tab.
3. Under the Default Product Sorting dropdown, select the sorting option you want to use.
4. Save your changes.

The default sorting in WooCommerce is by product name, but you can change this to by product price, product category, or product type. You can also choose to have the products sorted in reverse chronological order, or in alphabetical order. The last option, “Custom Sort”, allows you to create your own custom sorting order. Simply enter the name of the column in which you want the products to be sorted, and WooCommerce will take care of the rest.
