How to Remove the Add to Cart Button from Your WooCommerce Store

WooCommerce, by default, places simple “Add to Cart” buttons on the category and product pages of your site. There is no way within the WooCommerce admin interface to hide or disable these buttons from being displayed. So if you want to prevent your items from being purchased you are going to have a hard time coming up with an easy solution.

Thankfully, it is possible to remove all of the “Add to Cart” buttons on your site to temporarily stop your visitors from being able to buy anything on your WooCommerce store.

You can go out on to the Internet and find a WooCommerce developer or WordPress theme designer to go into your store’s file and remove the Add to Cart button with some custom code. This can get expensive, depending on who you find to handle the job for you, and there are some risks involved with long term maintenance of your site through theme updates in the future.

The fastest, cheapest and safest way to remove the Add to Cart button from your site is to use our Remove WooCommerce Features plugin.
