How To Easily Find the Product ID in WooCommerce

- written by

When it comes to finding your product ID, well, if you are building sites and are still discovering some of Woo’s nuances, they may be the reason you are here.

Why Do I Need to Know My Product ID?

You may be here already because of the frustration of needing to find your product ID in WooCommerce and Google sent you this way. But if not, often there will be settings in some themes or plugins that will ask you for this.

An example might be a plugin that list WooCommerce categories. It may give you the option to exclude certain categories in that list, but it doesn’t allow you to do it by the category name, but by the category ID. Or maybe the same applies for listing some products. In any case, if you don’t know where to find it, it can be a pain.

Finding Your WooCommerce Product ID

WooCommerce makes it simple. All you need to do it rollover the product, as you can see here on your products page.

Now if you are in editing the product, and don’t want to have to head back there to find its ID, there is another shortcut.

Just highlight the URL in your browser and and it will show you the post number in the long URL. That post number is your product number.

Sequentially Set Up Your Product Order Numbers

The thing with WooCommerce product ID’s are they will not be sequential. This can be very frustrating when you are importing, exporting or working with stored data. To solve that problem, you might want to consider checking out the WooCommerce Sequential Order Numbers Pro extension. Here is a post that will show you how it works.
