WooCommerce Extra Product Sorting Options

Rename the default product sorting option and add up to 5 new sorting options including alphabetical and on-sale sorting.

WooCommerce Extra Product Sorting Options provides options that extend the default WooCommerce orderby options on the shop page. You can optionally set a new name for the default sorting (helpful if you've used this to create a custom sorting order), and can enable up to 5 new sorting options: alphabetical, reverse alphabetical, on sale, featured, and availability product sorting.

Requires: WooCommerce 2.3+ and WordPress 4.0+


Includes options to:

  • rename default product sorting (i.e., change to "Our Sorting")
  • enable alphabetical product sorting
  • enable reverse alphabetical sorting
  • enable featured-first sorting
  • enable on sale sorting (note: works only for simple products)
  • enable sorting by inventory / availability

Rename Default Sorting

You can customize your product sorting order on your shop pages by clicking "Sort Products" or manually changin the "menu order" value. However, many shop admins like to then rename this from "Default Sorting" to something more descriptive, such as "Our Sorting" or "Our Selection". You can optionally enter a new name for this sorting order if desired.

Adding Sorting Options

When you create a customized sorting order, you lose the ability to sort products alphabetically. This plugin gives you the ability to add new sorting options to list products by title A to Z or in reverse order (Z to A).

Want to show items with the highest stock first? You can enable sorting by availability, which will enable sorting from high stock to low stock (See FAQ for more details). You can also show featured items first in your catalog.

You can add the option to sort items by sale status - there's a sorting option to show "On Sale" items first in the shop catalog. Please note that only simple products can be sorted by sale status, and variable products will display mixed with non-sale products.

Looking to remove sorting options?

We have a compatible plugin that will let you remove core WooCommerce sorting options, such as the default sorting method. You can check out the WooCommerce Remove Product Sorting plugin page for more details.
