How to Remove Related Products from your WooCommerce Site
By default, many WooCommerce themes show customers a list of related products on the individual item pages of your store. This is meant to give visitors a quick way to continue browsing your products and, ultimately, add some more to their cart before checkout.
Related products are a great way to increase sales and grow exposure for your catalog of goods. Unfortunately, if your site doesn’t have a lot of products or the matches WooCommerce considers “related” don’t make a lot of sense it’s usually best to disable this feature entirely.
You could hire a WooCommerce developer to take care of removing these related products for you. It’s a matter of modifying your theme with some new code or writing a brand new plugin and installing it on your site. If you don’t have the time or inclination for hiring someone you can use our plugin instead and get the same results in minutes.
