Without further ado, let’s get down to business.
What is WooCommerce Product Table?
Before we get lost in the list of features and whatnot, let us talk a bit about WooCommerce Product Table. What is it and what does it do?
In a single line, WooCommerce Product Table is a nifty WordPress plugin that helps you to create amazing product tables. Shown below is an example of a product table you can create using the plugin.
Traditional WooCommerce store layouts don’t cut it anymore. As a matter of fact, they put off customers and decrease your sales. The WooCommerce Product Table plugin offers you a modern way of displaying products.
The product tables you create using this WooCommerce add-on are searchable, filterable and offer plenty of options to showcase your products in new irresistible ways. Unlike traditional layouts, the WooCommerce Product Table plugin offers you the opportunity to boost sales without breaking a sweat.
The plugin is packed with all the features you need to create beautiful tables and streamline the customer’s journey from the beginning to the end. At the same time, it is easy to configure and use, making it one of the best tools you will ever have.
Now that you have an idea of what this plugin does, let us have a look at the features that will make your WooCommerce store an overnight success.
WooCommerce Product Table Features
The WooCommerce Product Table plugin ships with over 50 features at the time of writing. The developers, Barn2 Media, keep updating the plugin with even more features, meaning you will never run out of the options you need to create powerful product tables.
Below, we cover a couple of features to give you a glimpse of what to expect when you install the WooCommerce Product Table plugin.
We live in the age of smartphones and mobile devices of all shapes and sizes. Your customer spends a lot of time on their mobile devices, which means you need a fully responsive store that fits all types of devices.
The WooCommerce Product Table plugin is 100% responsive, meaning your product tables will look great and function well regardless of the device the customer is using.
On top of that, you can choose which columns take priority, allowing you to offer your customers the best user experience you possibly can.
Add Multimedia Content
Traditional product tables are severely limited as far as displaying multimedia content goes. The WooCommerce Product Table plugin doesn’t have the same limitation.
Now, you can display product images with lightbox zoom and embed audio, video and media playlists to promote your products right from within the product table. How nice?
Search Filters & Widgets
Wouldn’t it be nice if your customers could search and filter products without opening extra pages? Well, the WooCommerce Product Table plugin ships with search filters to sort products by attribute, category, tag or taxonomy.
That’s not all. You can add custom search widgets that help you to filter products by rating, price or any other custom attribute. Your customers won’t have to sweat to find the perfect product on your store.
Additionally, you can add an instant search box to your product tables, so your customers can find products using a keyword. You can even pre-search that table, so yeah!
100% WPML Compatible
The best part about running an online store is the fact that the entire world is your marketplace. You can sell to anybody anywhere on the globe. And since we all speak in different languages, we now have multilingual websites.
Are you worried your product tables won’t look great in Mandarin Chinese or Hebrew? Worry not, the WooCommerce Product Table plugin is 100% compatible with the WPML plugin, which means you can create product tables in whichever language you prefer.
Out of the box, the plugin comes with translations for French, German, Dutch, Italian, Greek, Portuguese, Swedish, Spanish, Hebrew, Norwegian, Polish and Finnish.
Add Multiple Products To Cart
Let’s say, for a minute, you sell food items. You would like to sell a combination of items at once, say, a bucket of fries, soda and chicken wings.
Instead of sending the customer to different order forms, you can show checkboxes next to each product allowing customers to quickly select multiple products at once and add them to cart in bulk.
On top of that, customers can select quantities, colors and other product attributes right from within the product tables. This saves you a great deal of time and the customer enjoys faster ordering.
Barn2 Media are well known for their superior plugins. The WooCommerce Product Table plugin, just like their other plugins is well coded to load quickly and efficiently, which minimizes the load on your server.
Additionally, the plugin comes with a lazy loading option, which is particularly helpful for large tables. Thanks to this option, you can list thousands of products without hurting your page speeds.
Other than that, WooCommerce Product Table has built-in cache, meaning you can decrease load times even further. Don’t you just like it when a developer is mindful of how their plugin affects your site speed?

Already have a WordPress theme you love? Well, the WooCommerce Product Table plugin has been expertly designed to work great with just about any theme. This makes it a great choice to complement any WooCommerce or page-builder theme – including our own Total WordPress theme.
