How Do I Set the Shop Page in WooCommerce?

Last updated on January 17, 2023 @ 5:55 pm

When you first install WooCommerce, the shop page is set to display your latest products. You can change what products are displayed on this page by going to WooCommerce > Settings > Products.

Under the ‘Default Product Sorting’ dropdown, you can choose what order you would like your products to be displayed in. The options are:

  • Default sorting (custom ordering + name)
  • Popularity (sales)
  • Average rating
  • Date (newest first)
  • Date (oldest first)
  • Price (ascending)
  • Price (descending)

To change the number of products that are displayed on the shop page:

1. Go to WooCommerce > Settings > Products.

2. Under the “Products Per Page” dropdown, select the number of products you would like to display on the shop page.

PRO TIP: When setting the shop page in WooCommerce, be sure to check the “Discourage search engines from indexing this page” box. Otherwise, your WooCommerce shop page will be indexed by search engines and may come up in search results.


In conclusion, you can change the shop page in WooCommerce by going to WooCommerce > Settings > Products and changing the default product sorting, number of products per page, and product order.
