Introduction – Why it’s important to customize the WooCommerce Product Page
The WooCommerce Product Page is one of the most important pages in your WooCommerce store, but normally you have little control over the design of this page.
Subsequently all WooCommerce Product pages tend to look exactly the same.
But not all products are the same, some Product Pages demand their own unique layout to really sell them.
Here’s two examples: the first one on the left is the default WooCommerce Single Page layout, the second one on the right has been customized.
Customizing the WooCommerce Product Page has two major benefits
1. More Sales

The Science behind making a better WooCommerce Shop Page
The Baymard Institute are the World’s leading research company on ecommerce design, and have analyzed thousands of ecommerce websites.
These is what they say about the Product Page.
‘Nearly all users go through a product page before making any purchase, and it’s often on the product page where users make up their mind on whether or not they want to purchase the item.
The product page is the centerpiece of your users’ e-commerce experience. Yet at the same time, the product page layout and features tend to be under a lot of strain as they often rely on the same template re-used across the entire site’s product catalog.
It’s often on the product page where users make up their mind on purchasing the item or not. Hence, we’ve observed that even small UX issues in a site’s product page implementation will often cause direct site abandonments. For example, the single most critical issue is that 51% of sites do not offer a shipping estimate or a shipping calculator at their product pages, this is despite the fact that a majority of users will try to seek out this very information.’

Whether you need to add a shipping estimate, an awesome product video, or much larger product images, or more SEO friendly text – this method makes it all possible.
The beauty of this approach is that there are no limitations on the design of WooCommerce Product page layout.
Here’s just some of the things you’ll be able to customize with the WooCommerce Product page.

The WordPress plugin I used to customize the WooCommerce Product page
Introducing WooBuilder Blocks
Each of the WooCommerce Product Pages examples above have been customized and built in a matter of minutes with the WooBuilder Blocks plugin.
WooBuilder Blocks is a WordPress plugin that lets you customize the WooCommerce Single Product Page for a single product, a category of products, or for all your products.
WooBuilder Blocks is built to be super fast and lean, and because it’s designed to be used with the WordPress Block Editor (Gutenberg), no Page Builder is required, so it won’t slow down your website.
WooBuilder Blocks works on any WordPress theme!
You can customize the layout of the WooCommerce Product Page using any WordPress theme. WooBuilder Blocks has been tested with Divi, Storefront, Astra, Ocean WP, Avada, Enfold, Flatsome, Genesis, BeTheme, Twenty Nineteen, Salient, Sydney and more.
Important note: Divi and Avada disable the new Block Editor (Gutenberg) so you’ll need to re-enable Gutenberg in the theme settings. Once Gutenberg is re-enabled WooBuilder Blocks will work as expected.
