Does this plugin allow me to set a weight based upon Brand? I have Brand set up as an attribute. And I would like for products to display with certain brands by default ahead of others… And where would the setting be done? In attributes..

Hey there,

Just purchased the Sorting WooCommerce Pro plug-in, and was hoping to use it to sort products by categories.

However, when we installed the plug-in and activated it, when going to WooCommerce > Products > Categories, we just see a “Please wait” message appear in a modal window and whatever is going on never completes.

Did you happen to have any ideas as to why this might be happening?

I will very much look forward to hearing from you.



I haven’t mentioned deactivating other plugins. I requested admin access to fix the conflict in my plugin :)

Hi Gal,

Thanks for the message, and done! I have set you up with an admin account and messaged you the details via the support form on – hope that will be OK, and please don’t hesitate to get in touch if you need any further information from me!

With best wishes,

Hi Gal, just wondering if you received the login details I sent you alright? It’s just that it doesn’t appear you’ve logged in to the site as yet! Perhaps you could let me know?

Hello galalaly,

with your plugin can I have sorting such first with custom ordering using menu_order and second by newness?

I have added with ACF a extra custom field called ‘sort’ The value could be like ‘44.544’ or ‘45.00’. I use Meta Data, and meta key is ‘sort’. Type of data is Numeric data. Think this is ok, but it won’t work. Is the problem that I use ACF for the extra custom fields or something else?


Can you please email me through the form in my profile for support? There should not be any problems with ACF unless there are other query overrides.

Hi, presale cuestion : not clear about the plugin allow. I’m just looking a way to sort products on shop page by category, without displaying category name. Did it works for that ? Thanks by advance. Regards.

The category order is as follows: 1. You go to categories page 2. You drag and drop them 3. When these are dragged and dropped, make sure you save them via clicking the bulk actions button. 4. Then sorting by category works by checking the order that you dragged and dropped.

Hope this is clear.

Hi There.

We are trying to sort by an attribute (type of leather) and its not bringing up any products.

Please assist.

Many Thanks iKmsa

Hello, Please send me a message from the form in my profile with admin details to check it out please. If you can also provide FTP access to check for conflicts please do as well. Thanks Galal

pre sale question: in woocommerce 2.6.14 for example if in sorting i put at the top a product (associated at different categories) in a category it goes on top also in the other category of the product right? with your plugin can i sort all products for each category right? thanks

Hello, I am not sure I understand the question, can you please elaborate?

example: i have a Gucci t-shirt and a Versace t-shirt, they are both present in 2 categories. if i sort order in one category the order changes also in the other category in woocommerce right? does your plugin sort a different products order for each category?

Thanks for the example. It’s clear now.
You can create 2 attributes, one called order for category A and one called order for category B. You can place the order you want per product for the attribute and then use the plugin to sort per category using the attributes that you created.
Does this answer your question?

Very cool plugin. I have a pre-purchase question. Does this plugin has the option to show ‘in stock / out of stock/ products? Thanks

Can you please advise? Very interested in your plugin. Thanks so much in advance.

Hi, Apologies for the late reply. You can sort using the stock status meta key alphabetically (instock, outofstock). But there is no builtin option that does it automatically meaning that you will need to setup the settings yourself.

Pre-sale question: where’s the live demo? Very interested in purchasing this plugin, even just to test it out.


Hi, Right now I only provide screenshots for this plugin. I may provide Live Preview in the future without an admin dashboard though. You can also purchase the plugin and ask for refund if you face problems with it.

1) Is this working in latest WP and woocommerce version? 2) Is this plugin sort the attributes in the product page? 3)Is this plugin will work if the attributes displayed in loop archive?

Thank you

1. The plugin works with latest WP and WC at the moment of writing this comment.
2. The plugin sorts the products in your shop page according to attributes.
3. The plugin does not sort the attributes themselves but the products based on their attributes.

Pre purchase question: I want to short my products in the archive page and categories page by a custom attribute. e.g. oz. My products are bottles and I want my customers to order the products by oz. is it possible to do that with your plugin? Thank you in advance.

You can sort the products using oz. The plugin does not affect the purchase/cart/checkout functionality. The plugin is only used for sorting products in the shop and categories pages.

Have you added the ability to sort by multiple attributes yet? If not – can you stear me towards a solution?

Hello, I haven’t got the time to implement this feature, sorry. You may ask a developer to customize the plugin or your store as you wish :-)

Can you sort by customer name alphabetically?

Hello, The plugin only sorts products via different criteria. If you have the customer name somehow related to the product, can you please let me know how (either here or privately via the form in my profile) so that I can reply to your question?

Is it possible to set default sorting to custom ordering + price? We’d like the menu_order products to show first and then the rest of the products to be displayed after these by ascending price.

Many thanks.

Hello, The fallback does not support price at the moment. Sorry.

Please can we get instructions on how to add an option to sort by category. We have two categories that we want to add to the sorting options.

Many Thanks Ikmsa

Hello, you need to arrange the products categories (via drag and drop) from Products -> Categories page from the dashboard, assign the products to the categories, and create the sorting option and choose “Category Order”. This will make the products appear on your shop according to the category sorting that you set via drag and drop.

Hi, is it possible to sort the assigned product attributes values, which are displayed on the product single pages with this plugin? Thank you.


No, it is not possible to do that with the plugin. The plugin is only used to sort products on the shop age using their attributes but has nothing to do with the order of the attributes themselves.

Thank you
