The latest WordPress editor has brought some flexibility with what you can do via posts and pages. With that comes eight blocks that help you sell your products from your WooCommerce store on any page or post.
Eight WooCommerce Product Blocks for Pages and Posts
With these blocks you are not limited to only the product archive pages, nor do you need a special page builder. Used wisely, these come in handy for content based around specific products, giving more flexibility to smaller shops.
Products by Category Block
This has been a favorite for archive pages and on homepages of themes like Storefront, but categories are such an easy way to group your products and now display them on pages and posts.
Hand-picked Products Block
This one is very useful for showing a single product or a group of products specifically.
Best Selling Products Block
Again, the theme Storefront lets you pick up something similar to this on the homepage, but now you can list these on any post or page. They are automatically pulled in based on your sales. You can also filter them by categories.
Newest Products Block
Again, pulling in your most recent added products and allowing you to filter them by category.
On Sale Products Block
Similar to the last two blocks, but only for products on sale.
Top Rated Products Block
Based on reviews that include ratings.
Products by Attributes Block
You can also pull in products based on attributes if you are using variable products or some other aspect that uses attributes.
Featured Products Block
And lastly, the good old Featured products. What’s nice about this block is the product does not have to be set as a featured product in the WooCommerce settings. And it also doesn’t automatically tag the product as a featured product when you use this.
And since this is a pretty slick format, here is what the featured product looks like when we add it to the block with the options.
As we moved forward with the new editor, more plugins that integrate with WooCommerce will take advantage of blocks. Since this post, the cover block was added to the popular Storefront theme to give you even more design flexibility. I’m sure we can expect to see some great stuff around the corner.
