WooCommerce module overview
Use the WooCommerce module to insert WooCommerce content into any page.
Here are some ways you can use the WooCommerce module to display products on regular pages. Note that the WooCommerce module comes with standard Page Builder – you don't need to have Beaver Themer installed to implement these ideas.
- Display a single product
- Display a single product page
- Display multiple products, all or a subset
- Display price and the Add to Cart button for a single product
- Display subcategories in a parent category
- Display the cart
- Display the Checkout content area
- Display order tracking
- Display the My Account area
- More WooCommerce options
Display a single product
For example, you might want to display a featured product each month that you select, as shown in this screenshot:
The product is identified by its ID number in the WooCommerce module, and in the screenshot there's a Heading module above it to identify the product.
The display is what you'd see on an archive page, not on a true product page. There's the title of the product, the price, and an Add to Cart button displayed under the featured image. Clicking this item takes you to the product page.
To display a single product:
- Add a WooCommerce module to the layout.
- In the Layout field choose Single product, then enter the product ID. Mouse over the question mark in the Product ID field for how to find the product ID.
Display a single product page
You can display the same details that you'd see in a true product page, as shown in the following screenshot.
The single product page display is identical to what you'd see on an actual single product page, but you can embed it anywhere in a layout on another page.
To display a single product page:
- In the Layout field choose Single product page, then enter the product ID. Mouse over the question mark in the Product ID field for how to find the product ID.
Display multiple products, all or a subset
You can display all of your products, or display a subset of products based on various sources, described below. The module displays the products themselves, and in most cases you'll want to add a Heading to describe the set of products you're displaying. For example, in the screenshot below, the WooCommerce module displays the products with basic product information, and there's a Heading module above the WooCommerce module that says "Our products."
To display multiples products (all or a subset), drag a WooCommerce module into your page layout and in the Layout field choose Multiple products.
To display the entire set of products:
- In the Products source field, choose Products IDs, then leave the Product IDs field blank.
To display a custom list of products:
- In the Products source field, choose Products IDs, then in the Product IDs add a list of product IDs, separated by commas.
To display the products in a particular category (or combined categories):
In this case, you'd most likely add a Heading module to display the category name.
- In the Products source field, choose Product category, then add the category's slug. You can display products from more than one categories by entering multiple category slugs separated by commas, but note that the products will still be grouped into a single display, not broken out by category.
Tip: If you want to display multiple categories of products, use a WooCommerce module for each category, and use a Heading module to name each category.
Other displays of multiple products:
You can display multiple products in any of the following ways:
- Best selling
- Top rated
Note: These categories are determined by WooCommerce and cannot be individualized. If you want to display a different set of items, follow the procedure above for inserting a custom list of multiple products.
- Drag a WooCommerce module into your page layout.
- In the Layout field, choose Multiple Products.
- In the Products source field, choose how the products will be selected.
- Products IDs
To display all products, choose Products IDs for Products Source, then leave the Product IDs field blank.
- To display a custom list of products, choose Products IDs for Products Source, then in the Product IDs field, add the list of Product IDs you want to display, separated by a comma.
- Products IDs
Display price and the Add to Cart button for a single product
In the WooCommerce API, the product price and Add to Cart button are displayed as a unit, and you can display this part of an individual product without showing the rest of the product, as shown in the following screenshot, in which there's a Heading module that says "Our price," then a WooCommerce module with Layout designated "Add to Cart" button.
Display subcategories in a parent category
You can display your entire set of top-level categories, or if you have a hierarchy of categories, you can display all the subcategories of a particular category that you identify by its ID number.
To display the entire set of top-level categories:
This is equivalent to what you see on the standard WooCommerce Shop page when you have selected Categories as the Shop page display preference in your WooCommerce settings.
- In the Layout field, choose Categories, then leave the Parent category ID field as the default value
To display all the subcategories of a category:
This is equivalent to what you see on a standard WooCommerce category archive page when you have selected Subcategories as the default category display as the preference in your WooCommerce settings. When you click one of the subcategories, it takes you to a list of products within that subcategory.
- In the Layout field, choose Categories, then in the Parent category ID field add the ID for the parent category. Mouse over the question mark in the Parent category ID field for how to find the category ID.
Note: The behavior when you click a category in the display is the same as for standard WooCommerce pages. If you click a top-level category, you'll get a display of the subcategories, if there are any. If you click a top-level category with no subcategories, you'll see a display of products within the category. It's a good idea to not have more than one level of subcategory, because WooCommerce doesn't handle the display of subsubcategories well without a plugin or custom coding. However, by using the WooCommerce module it's possible to display a subcategory's subategories by entering the ID of the subcategory in the Parent category ID field.
Display the cart
You can use the WooCommerce module to display what you'd normally see on the Cart page. In the Layout field, choose Cart and you'll see something like the screenshot example below.
Display the Checkout content area
You can use the WooCommerce module to display what you'd normally see on the Checkout page. In the Layout field, choose Checkout.
Display order tracking
You can display the normal WooCommerce order tracking, such as in this screenshot, with fields for the customer to enter Order ID and billing email.
Display the My Account area
You can display what the customer normally sees on the My Account page.
More WooCommerce options
Besides the options available in the WooCommerce module, you can use any WooCommerce shortcodes in an HTML module. See the WooCommerce documentation for a list of shortcodes.
When you have WooCommerce installed, all of the WooCommerce widgets appear in the WordPress Widgets group in the Content panel.
