How to Hide The Parent Product

If you’re using Show Single Variations to display your product variations as single products, you might want to hide the parent variable product to make things less confusing for your customers.

If so, you can hide each individual parent product by taking the following steps:

  1. In your WordPress dashboard, go to Products > All Products and select the variable product you want to edit.
  2. At the top right of the edit product page, you’ll find the Publish section. 
publish section woocommerce
  1. Click the blue Edit text next to Catalog visibility: Shop and search result, this will bring up a few options.

  1. Your variable parent product will now be hidden from the catalog. However, it still will be visible as a single product page.
