How to Control Product Visibility in WooCommerce Store

How to Control Product Visibility in WooCommerce Store

In competitive markets, it may be necessary to control product visibility to ensure that your products have a better chance of standing out from the competition. Your product can become more exclusive by controlling its visibility, limiting access to only privileged customers. By setting user roles, you can reward customers who spend more by granting them privileged access. With WholesaleX’s User Role Feature, you can even automatically upgrade customers to a higher user role once they spend a certain amount, giving them access to. And, if you want to make your entire store private, you can also do that with WholesaleX.

Benefits of Controlling the Visibility of Your Products

One aspect of managing inventory involves determining the appropriate quantity of inventory to keep at every location consistently. Regulating inventory visibility facilitates the maintenance of adequate inventory levels across all channels.

Having greater control over inventory visibility makes it simpler to oversee stock levels across multiple channels and ensure adequate inventory to fulfill customer demands.

How to Control the Visibility of Your Product

Now, we will show you the multiple options to control the visibility of products. With WholesaleX, you can control the visibility of your products in four different ways. You can control the product visibility from:

  • Category Page: To control the visibility of all product under a category

In order to control the visibility of your products on a global level, such as hiding them from B2C or guest users. We need to do so, from WholesaleX’s settings page. Here you can find the option to hide all your product from B2C users and Guest users.

Step 1: Select the users you want to hide the products from.

  1. All Users
  2. All Roles
  3. Specific Users
  4. Specific Roles

Similarly, select the product filter from the dropdown menu to which you would like to control the visibility. Because not just users and user roles, your visibility control can be product specific, so you need to select them for better visibility control.
