Learn How to Add a Short Product Description in WooCommerce – Customers may be interested in your products and buy more if you write a short, interesting, and informative description of them.
We’ll demonstrate how to add a short product description to your WooCommerce shop in this post.
Why Would WooCommerce Add a Short Product Description?
Like a post snippet, a short product description might get a customer interested in a certain item.
Most WooCommerce WordPress themes put the product description right below the price of the product on each product page.
This description is ideal for providing crucial details about a product, such as its size or the material it is made of, as it is one of the first things customers will notice when they visit a store.
This may make it easier for customers to quickly determine if they want to scroll to the product’s entire description or go through its picture gallery to learn more about it. In other words, a compelling description could be the rest of your sales pitch on your product page.
Let’s look at how to write a succinct product description for WooCommerce.
How WooCommerce Adds a Brief Product Description
Go to Products » All Products in your WordPress dashboard to write a brief description.
Locate the product where you wish to provide a brief description, and then click the “Edit” option next to it.
When you’ve finished, scroll to the box marked “Product brief description.”
A description may now be entered into the text box.
Once you’re happy with the information you’ve given, you can edit or publish the page as usual.
You may find the brief description at the top of the screen if you visit this product page on your website.
The majority of themes will include this description next to the item’s price and the “Add to Cart” button. Depending on your WordPress theme, you could see something different, but often it will be shown at the top of the page.
How to Display Short Product Descriptions on Your Home Page
Most WooCommerce themes just show the short description on the individual product pages by default.
As you can see in the accompanying picture, they often don’t display the description on the product category pages or the main shop page.
On the store’s home page and category pages, however, you may sometimes wish to display this data. Customers may be able to figure out what items are by using this to learn more about them before looking at the full product page.
You will need to add some code to your website for the brief description to appear on the main shop page and product category pages.
You must copy/paste the following into the functions.php file of your theme or the WPCode plugin (recommended):
, 5 );
The short descriptions of your various items are now shown on the store’s home page and product category pages.
This information will often appear between the product’s price and the “Add to Cart” button in WooCommerce themes. This is seen in the picture below.
Just keep in mind that too much text on the pages for your shop and product categories might make your website seem crowded and perplexing.
You may always edit a brief product description if you don’t like the way it now reads by using the same procedure as before.
