⚠️ Related Products for WooCommerce will be discontinued on 1 May 2022. We recommend switching to the Related Products feature that is built-in to PeachPay, an all-in-one checkout and product recommendation solution engineered to increase sales on your store.
Display fresh, random WooCommerce related products on every single product page load (in a slider or not) based on the current product’s category, tags, or attributes.
Related products can be configured to display in posts, pages, and sidebar widgets, and can be configured to exclude categories.
Use the shortcode
[woo-related] for product pages or
[woo-related id='XX'] /
[woo-related product-id='XX' show-title='no'] for posts, pages, and widgets.
Exclude taxonomies using the the option field in the settings page.
The shortcode accepts id, title and number.
will display related products based on product ID 15.
[woo-related id='15' title='no']
is the same as above but will hide Related Products title. For sidebars, etc. you can use the widget title.
[woo-related id='15' title='no' number='1']
is the same as above but will return only 1 product.
will use current product’s ID. This should be used on product pages only.
Related Products for WooCommerce can help you:
- Display real related products (using a slider or not)
- Set the related product’s heading text (you can use HTML)
- Set the number of related products you want to display or disable them
- Set category or tag based related products

Related Products block position
Move related products
Related Products for WooCommerce uses WordPress hooks to display related products on product pages. If you need to move the related products block you can remove the action and add it again using a different hook or priority. This is extremly helpful if you code your own theme or child theme.
To remove related products block you can use
remove_action( 'woocommerce_after_single_product', 'wrprrdisplay' );
in your theme’s functions.php file.
If you want to add it again you can do something like this
add_action( 'woocommerce_after_single_product', 'wrprrdisplay', 55 );
add_action( 'ANY-OTHER-HOOK', 'wrprrdisplay', PRIORITY );
Check GitHub for all single product page actions.
