WooCommerce admins and store managers can set the product visibility to “Private“. This is helpful if they need to hide certain products from the public, while keeping them available for manual invoicing or other purposes.
The problem, however, is that if admins or store managers are logged in, private WooCommerce products (as well as private WordPress posts, private WordPress pages, etc.) are actually visible on the Shop, Category and product loop pages.
The “Private: ” prefix is added to the product title (see screenshot), but there is usually no need to alter the frontend with products that are not going to be added to the cart anyway!
So, let’s hide private products for WooCommerce administrators from the frontend. Enjoy!

WooCommerce powers over 26% of global eCommerce websites and is an excellent and convenient way to create your online shop without writing a single line of code.
But besides its convenience – another factor that makes WooCommerce a popular choice is its flexibility. While the core WooCommerce installation helps you create a basic online store with ease – specific paid WooCommerce plugins make it easy to create a customized and ideal business model of your choice.
For instance, several businesses prefer a private WooCommerce store model to grant access or sell products and services to specific customers and hide from the others. This is where a private store for WooCommerce plugins comes into the picture.
A great example is Oriflame – a direct sales leading beauty company that sells products for everyone and reserves some for specific VIP members on their website. They offer benefits like exclusive discounts, access to a complete range of products, and fast delivery to these VIP members.
There can be multiple other reasons behind creating a private WooCommerce store. In this article, we’ll briefly touch on those reasons and share some of the best WooCommerce private store plugins you can use for your WooCommerce store. Let’s go!

While WooCommerce is one of the most powerful and flexible ecommerce platforms on the market today, it was built for retail, and therefore it’s missing many important features for business buyers.
If you are setting up a wholesale store with WooCommerce, you will find many of these features fulfilled by small individual plugins. However, that approach comes with large disadvantages: reduced site performance caused by running a large number of plugins, and plugin conflicts that can lead to technical issues and errors.
One solution can be replacing several wholesale plugins with a single all-in-one WooCommerce wholesale suite solution. By doing that, you avoid cluttering the site with a large number of plugins, as well as avoid conflicts and errors, since all features are running under the same extension.
In this article let’s explore some of the best plugin suites on the market for wholesale sites, by looking at features, use cases, pricing and support.

The default WooCommerce Dashboard Products page (/wp-admin/edit.php?post_type=product page) shows the list of products in a table. Default fields are: Image, SKU, Stock, Price, Categories, Tags, Featured and Date.
Sometimes, these columns are not enough and you need more. For example, you might want to quickly take a look at a product custom field, such as “visibility” (whether the product is hidden or not).
So, here’s the snippet for that. Of course, you can adapt it to show your own custom field, an ACF field or whatever product-related information you require.

While working on a workaround for a client, I had to hide a hidden product from the cart, checkout, order received and emails. Hidden products already don’t show on the shop and category pages, but they do show on the cart if they’re added to cart “programmatically”.
A tough task, but as usual here I come with the solution 🙂
