Important Notes

  1. If you’re using a page builder plugin to showcase your products, please be aware that this plugin may not be compatible. We recommend reaching out to the developers of your page builder plugin for further guidance.
  2. It’s important to note that once you deactivate or delete the plugin, any rearrangements of all products cannot be reversed.
  3. If you’re reordering products by categories, please keep in mind that the rearrangements WILL BE reversed upon deactivating or deleting the plugin.


If the sort order you changed is not working on your Shop page, please check below is set properly.

  1. Go to WordPress Admin > Appearance > Customize
  2. Select “Woocommerce” from left and go to “Product Catalogue”
  3. Now here check for “Default Product Sorting”.
  4. Make sure it is set to “Default sorting (custom ordering + name)”

If you have huge list of product and the plugin is not saving the sort order changes

Then it may be issue with PHP configuration done on your server for memory_limit and max_execution_time.
Ask your web hosting provider to increase memory_limit and max_execution_time and try updating sort order after that.

This will fix the issue.

Click on “Sort by Categories” tab to arrange products by Categories.

Can I undo the changes I have made after deactivating or deleting the plugin?

  1. Products rearranging CAN NOT be undone after deactivating or deleting the plugin if you are doing sorting on all products. As it directly updates the “menu_order” property of the products.
  2. Products rearranging WILL BE undone after deactivating or deleting the plugin if you are doing sorting on products by categories.

Can I also update the sort order of products added using woocommerce shortcode ?

Yes, you can override the default sort order of the products added using shortcode like this [product_category category="my-category-slug"]. To do that Go to “Admin > Rearrange Products > Settings” and enable/check the option that says “All Loops (including shortcodes)”.
