WooCommerce: One Product Per Row @ Shop Page

By default, WooCommerce displays 4 products per row in the shop page. This is ok for almost any ecommerce website, however in certain cases you might want to change this setting in order to show full-width products (a.k.a. one product per row).

In this post we’ll look at the alternatives you have in regard to changing this setting, and also some CSS adjustments to make the 1-product-per-row shop page look better. Enjoy!

Our goal: a 1-product per row layout on the Shop page

add_filter( 'loop_shop_columns', 'loop_columns', 999 );

function loop_columns() {
   return 1; 

CSS Snippet: Centered Layout @ WooCommerce Shop Page

Once you have “1 product per row” in place, you might get a result similar to this (basically, despite you have one product per row, they don’t take full width and therefore the layout doesn’t look right):

Despite we have one product per row, they won’t take full width.

Which means we also need to make use of some CSS in order to move the products and center align them.

ul.products li.product .woocommerce-loop-product__link {
    margin: 0 auto;

ul.products li.product .button {
    margin: 0 auto;

The final result is shown at the top of this page.

If you also want to change the dimensions of your product images, go to WordPress Dashboard > Appearance > Customize > WooCommerce > Product Images and make sure the width of your Catalog images is at least 1000px.

Advanced Plugin: WooCommerce Product Table

For a code-free solution, I found a reliable plugin that achieves a similar result to this snippet (and much more). This is a great option if you don’t want to code or aren’t comfortable with PHP.

As we saw above, displaying one product per row using the normal WooCommerce store layout doesn’t look quite right unless you add some extra CSS to fix the alignment. The WooCommerce Product Table plugin fixes this problem in a way that makes much better use of space. 

It does this by displaying one product per row in a structured table layout. You can add multiple columns of product data to the table, which fills the width of the page while providing extra information for customers. For example, you can add columns for the product image, name, short description, add to cart buttons, and any other type of product data. 

The table layout also comes with extra features that can improve the customer experience. For example, you can add a search box and filters above the table to help customers to find products more easily. Overall, it’s probably a better way to display one product per row because the table layout lends itself perfectly to this format. 

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
