Why Is My Product Not Showing on WooCommerce?

Last updated on October 1, 2022 @ 4:11 pm

If you’re asking yourself “Why is my product not showing on WooCommerce?” then this article is for you. There are a few common reasons why your product might not be appearing on your WooCommerce store, and we’ll go over each one so that you can troubleshoot and get your products back up and running.

1. Incorrect Product Category

One of the most common reasons why a product might not show up on WooCommerce is because it was assigned to the wrong category. When setting up your products, be sure to double-check the categories you’re assigning them to. If you have a lot of products, it’s easy to accidentally assign one to the wrong category.

2. Incorrect Visibility Settings

Another reason your product might not be appearing on WooCommerce is because of the visibility settings. By default, WooCommerce products are set to “Catalog” visibility, which means they will only show up in your shop page and catalog pages. If you want your product to appear in search results and on other pages on your site, you’ll need to change the visibility settings to “Search” or “Public”.

PRO TIP: If you are using a WooCommerce plugin and your product is not appearing on your website, this could be due to a number of reasons.

First, check to make sure that your product is published and not set to draft mode. If it is in draft mode, you will need to publish it in order for it to appear on your website.

Next, check to see if your product is assigned to a category. If it is not, then it will not appear on your website. You can assign your product to a category by editing the product and selecting the appropriate category from the drop-down menu.

Finally, check the WooCommerce settings to make sure that products are set to be visible on the front-end of your website. You can do this by going to WooCommerce > Settings > Catalog and selecting the ‘Show products on the shop page’ option.

3. Out of Stock

If your product is out of stock, it will not appear on your WooCommerce store. This is because WooCommerce hides out of stock products by default.

To change this setting, go to WooCommerce > Settings > Products > Inventory. From there, you can choose to show or hide out of stock products.

4. Product Not Yet Published

If you just created a new product and it’s not showing up on your store, it’s likely because it’s not yet published. By default, new products are set to “Draft” status, which means they won’t be visible on your front-end store.

To publish a product, go to WooCommerce > Products > All Products. From there, find the product you want to publish and change the status from “Draft” to “Published”.

There are a few common reasons why your product might not be appearing on your WooCommerce store: incorrect product category, incorrect visibility settings, out of stock, or not yet published. Be sure to double-check each of these before assuming there’s something wrong with your store.
