WooCommerce Product blocks allow you to integrate content and commerce

WooCommerce and WordPress have long offered the benefit of combining content and commerce. WooCommerce 3.6 introduces eight new product blocks, which allow you to insert products on any page or post in your store.

This means that store owners no longer have to show products only in the product archive or on product pages. They can seamlessly integrate commerce and content across all their stores, on any page.

Note: WooCommerce 3.6’s new product blocks require store owners to have WordPress 5.0 installed.

There are eight new product blocks to choose from

Gutenberg introduced a new user interface in WordPress 5.0 that allows store owners to choose from a variety of predetermined groups and create a custom list with hand-picked products for display on any page or post.

This interface provides a preview of the selection once it is published. Store owners can adjust the order and layout to fine-tune the appearance.

The store owner can organize the layout in a certain number of columns and rows, and order products by newness or price.

The first WooCommerce products blocks was released as a feature plug to allow extensive test, but with 3.6 it will be integrated into WooCommerce core. Here is a breakdown of all eight new product blocks:

  • Featured Products: Choose and display one product in a new, high-impact format. You can adjust the text alignment, hide/show the price and description, add color overlays, change the button call to action, set a custom height and override product photographs.
  • Hand-picked, individual products: Display products of your choosing in a grid.
  • Bestsellers/top-rated: Display a grid of your best-selling products, filterable by category.
  • Latest products: Show a grid with your newest products. Filterable by category.
  • Products on Sale: Display a grid of products for sale, filterable by product category.
