WooCommerce: JetPack Sharing Not Showing? [resolved]

Yes, Jetpack Sharing has an option to show the Sharing buttons on the WooCommerce Single Product page. But this does not mean your template is compatible with that! If you have ticked “products” and JetPack Sharing buttons are not showing, you can use this simple snippet.

1. Tick “products” under Settings / Sharing

WooCommerce: enable sharing buttons on product page
WooCommerce: enable sharing buttons on product page

2. If sharing buttons don’t appear on the product pages, add this PHP snippet

// add Jetpack sharing on the right of the product image
add_action('woocommerce_single_product_summary','addshare', 40);
function addshare(){
echo sharing_display();

Where to add custom code?

You should place custom PHP in functions.php and custom CSS in style.css of your child theme: where to place WooCommerce customization?

This code still works, unless you report otherwise. To exclude conflicts, temporarily switch to the Storefront theme, disable all plugins except WooCommerce, and test the snippet again: WooCommerce troubleshooting 101

  1. Hi Rodolfo:

    As you know, the JetPack Sharing buttons do not show on WooCommerce Shop / Category pages as they are of the page type is_post_type_archive.

    Although a plugin is available to change the behavior using shortcodes, I thought I’d give this a try with your snippet and simply replaced:

    add_action('woocommerce_single_product_summary','addshare', 40);


    add_action('woocommerce_after_main_content','addshare', 10);

    However, if you hover over one of the sharing buttons you’ll see it has picked up the URL for the last item on the page … instead of the page itself. Any thoughts as to whether can be adjusted?

    1. Good point – but that function probably looks for a product and does not share the “page” it’s embedded on. You’ll need to find an alternative. I know JetPack Sharing can be shown on pages and posts as well, so you need to find that function and use that instead

  2. may I know where should I put the php snippet?

    1. Hey Yew, I explain everything in my WooCommerce Customization Video Tutorial here. Hope this helps!

  3. Hi! I added the snippet and it still does now show. Any tips?

    1. Hey Austin, can you show me your website – maybe that can help me understand the situation better? Thank you ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. Thanks alot, it worked like charm
