WooCommerce Products Per Page


WooCommerce Products Per Page is a simple plugin that adds a very valuable feature to your site; the ability for you and the customer to change the products listed per page.

When your customers are shopping online they want the best experience possible, for some this means to have a small amount of products per page, while others like to have a long list of many (all) products available.
Using the WooCommerce Products Per Page your customers can choose how many products they want to see per page.

WooCommerce Products Per Page dropdown is easy to use and has several other product page settings available.
When activated the plugin already works and has multiple settings you can set to your desire.

Options like:

  • Dropdown position (top or bottom, top and bottom)
  • List op options products per page to show to your visitors
  • Default number of products per page
  • Columns per page

Can this be used with shortcodes?

At this moment the plugin doesn’t work with manual shortcodes that list products, only on the official WooCommerce shop page (this includes category archives etc).

The number of products per page isn’t changing when using the dropdown, why?

There’s a chance that your theme or another plugin is overriding the number of products per page. This functionality may need to be disabled in order for the plugin to work.
First try to determine what is causing this, your theme or a plugin. This can be done by switching themes / enable/disable plugins to see when the dropdown starts to work.
When determined what is causing it, it is possible to figure out what code is executed and how to disable that.

Feel free to open a support thread if you need any further help. Please do note that I cannot help everyone and every theme to be compatible.

This plugin works with WooCommerce 4.3 It says it has not been tested. But I tested after upgrade and it is great. If it does not work it might be your theme. Test that by changing theme. Storefront is a good theme to test against.

This is a great plug in. Thank you for your work. Works great with WOOF - WooCommerce Products Filter by setting HTTP method to GET from settings page.

Hi, I would like to use it but unfortunately the plugin stops working when a customer use the Woof - Product filter. It is like the filter reset the number of product per page. When do you plan to fix that problem ? Thanks

It's have to be plugin in every woo store. But there is a thing that has to be fixed. When there are > 1000 products and the user choose show all he will catch the Fatal error: Allowed memory size of 134217728 bytes exhausted (tried to allocate 20480 bytes) I think show all option must work via Ajax, which will work when the user reaches the bottom of the shop page.
