WooCommerce: How to Remove Related Products

Some store owners like to keep their product pages as clutter-free as possible. They want to remove all the unnecessary stuff and keep the focus of the page about the particular product.

On the WooCommerce single product page, you will find 3 (or more) related products. In this tutorial, we will show you how to remove these related products using a simple code.

PHP Snippet: Hide Related Products @ WooCommerce Single Product Page

remove_action( 'woocommerce_after_single_product_summary', 'woocommerce_output_related_products', 20 );

Where to add custom code?

You should place PHP snippets at the bottom of your child theme functions.php file and CSS at the bottom of its style.css file. Make sure you know what you are doing when editing such files - if you need more guidance, please take a look at my guide "Should I Add Custom Code Via WP Editor, FTP or Code Snippets?" and my video tutorial "Where to Place WooCommerce Customization?"

Does this snippet (still) work?

Please let me know in the comments if everything went as expected. I would be happy to revise the snippet if you report otherwise (please provide screenshots). I have tested this code with Storefront theme, the WooCommerce version listed above and a WordPress-friendly hosting.

  1. Thank you for the great article!

    I found a way to remove the related products when using the Avada Theme:
    Add this code snippet here to your functions.php

    And then add this also to your functions.php:

    function avada_lang_setup() {
        remove_class_action('woocommerce_after_single_product_summary', 'Avada_Woocommerce', 'output_related_products', 15);
    add_action( 'after_setup_theme', 'avada_lang_setup' );
  2. Hi, PHP Snippet: Hide Related Products @ WooCommerce Single Product Page doesn’t work anymore, I don’t understand why. May be because of the theme (I use a child theme, child of AVADA).

    1. Yes, it could be because of your custom theme. It would need to be edited to make it work
