Do you want to add a new products WooCommerce section to your online store?

Showing new product arrivals in your online store is a proven way to boost sales. That’s why popular stores like Amazon, Walmart, and all others have a new arrivals widget.

In this article, we’ll show you how to display new products in WooCommerce, both with and without a plugin.

Why Display New Products in WooCommerce?

Displaying new products in WooCommerce helps potential customers find new arrivals more easily. For example, regular customers can easily find products they haven’t seen before, and new customers can tell the difference between your old and new stock.

Moreover, you won’t need to add a “new product” badge to your images. Instead, you can send visitors to a dedicated new products page or areas on your site separate from your older stock.

The advantage of this is it gets more eyes on your newest product arrivals, which can significantly boost sales.

How Do I Show New Arrivals in WooCommerce?

In this post, we’ll share 2 different methods to show new products in WooCommerce.

First, you’ll learn how to create a new products page with a popular landing page plugin. Afterward, you’ll learn how to use WooCommerce’s native WordPress block and shortcodes to display new arrivals in posts, pages, and widgets.

Let’s dive in!

Method 1: Add a New Products WooCommerce Page with SeedProd

The first method uses SeedProd to create a new products page for your WooCommerce store. SeedProd is the best drag-and-drop WordPress page builder used by over 1 million websites.

With this plugin, you can easily add new products to your WooCommerce product pages and create landing pages for your products to improve your conversions. For example, you can create a WooCommerce coming soon page in just a few minutes. In addition, It has several WooCommerce blocks that let you easily create and customize your product pages.

You can also use SeedProd to create an entire WooCommerce store without code.

1. Install SeedProd Landing Page Builder

The first step is to install the SeedProd plugin.

For help with this, see this step-by-step guide on how to install a plugin in WordPress.

Note: there is a free version of SeedProd that you can use, but we’ll use the Elite version for the advanced WooCommerce features.

After activating the plugin, go to SeedProd » Settings and enter your license key. You’ll find this information in your account area on the SeedProd website.

2. Choose a Landing Page Template

The next step is to navigate to SeedProd » Templates. On this page, you can choose from hundreds of pre-made landing page templates to use as a starting point.

You can filter the templates by clicking the tabs along the top, which include:

Each template is easy to customize in the visual page editor, so you’re not locked into one particular design.

When you’ve found the template, you want to use, hover over it and click the ‘Tick’ icon. For this guide, we’ll use the eCommerce Thank You Page template.

You’ll then need to give your page a name and click the ‘Save and Start Editing the Page’ button.

3. Add the Recent Products WooCommerce Block

After launching your template, it will open in SeedProd’s visual page editor. This is where you can list all of your latest WooCommerce product arrivals.

Navigating the visual editor is super easy.

You can see different blocks and sections on the left-hand side that you can drag and drop onto your page. And on the right, you’ll see a live page preview.

Whenever you add content to your page, you’ll see the changes in real-time. This makes it a lot easier to preview your finished page without navigating to a different screen.

To display new WooCommerce products, we’ll use one of SeedProd’s built-in WooCommerce landing page blocks.

So on the left-hand menu, head to the block section labeled ‘WooCommerce.’ From there, find the Recent Products block and drag it onto your page.

After, you can click anywhere on the recent products block to open the block settings on the right.

You can also change the query from recent products to:

For example, you can customize the product description typography, regular price font, and the sale price badge color.

Other advanced customization options include:

  • Button styles and typography
  • Image shadows and borders
  • Margin and padding spacing

Once you’ve finished adding your new products, make sure you click Save to save your changes.

4. Customize Your New Products WooCommerce Page

After adding products to your page, you can finish customizing your design to suit your brand. SeedProd offers several easy ways to do this, but first, we’ll start by removing page elements that we don’t need.

For instance, the page template comes with demo images and descriptions. To remove them, hover your mouse over the block and click the trashcan icon.

You can also edit any heading or text block by clicking inside it and entering your new content.

5. Publish Your New Products WooCommerce Page

Before you move on to publishing your page, let’s make sure it’s mobile-friendly. SeedProd has built-in mobile editing options to ensure your page looks great on any screen or device.

To check your page, click the mobile icon on the bottom navigation bar. From there, you can adjust your page to ensure it displays correctly on mobile screens.

Method 2: Use New Products WooCommerce Shortcodes

If you’d like to display new products in your existing WooCommerce pages or WordPress posts, you can. WooCommerce has dedicated WordPress blocks and built-in shortcodes you can use to customize your pages and other areas of your online store.

To add new posts with a block, edit any post or page in your store, and click the plus icon. Next, scroll down to the WooCommerce section.

In the block options on the right, you can configure your grouped products to show or hide:

Newest Products Shortcode for WooCommerce

If you’re using the classic WordPress editor, you can do the same thing with a WooCommerce shortcode. In the WordPress editor, paste this shortcode: [recent_products].

You can control the number of linked products and product columns by adding the following shortcode parameters: products limit=”3″ columns=”3″.
