WooCommerce: Disable Jetpack Publicize for Products

When you enable the Jetpack plugin and its “Publicize” module, WordPress posts get automatically shared to the social media you pick.

This, of course, includes also WooCommerce posts -> “products”. Well, what if you want to deactivate this function?

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. This worked great, thanks!

    1. Excellent 🙂

  2. Should I replace the bbloomer with my own social media accounts? Does it do all of them or only Facebook?

    1. Hey Linda, thanks for your comment! No, you can leave the snippet as-is. It will disable any social sharing
