Table Content ↑ Back to top
The settings under this section let you control what content you want to display in your product tables.
This setting allows you to choose what product data you want to display in the product table. A dropdown menu allows you to choose different product attributes you can display like product image, add to cart button, product description, etc.
- Column Names
Product Tables for WooCommerce allows you to be creative with your titles and table headings. You can give your own custom titles here.
- Image Size
You can set the image size of the Product Image section. The minimum size (in pixels) for the product image is 50px, while the maximum is 250px. Anything above or below that threshold will render this setting back to its default settings.
This checkbox enables Lightbox feature. When a user clicks on the Product Image, the product image is displayed in a modal popup.
You can configure your product table to cater to multiple product categories in your store. By segmenting products according to a category, you are essentially allowing your users to segment, view, and eventually add products to cart according to their preferences.
A simple yet powerful feature: price-based segmentation allows you to segment products based on minimum and maximum price level; thereby allowing people to view only those products that fit their budgetary requirements.
Individual Product Selection
Only need to add a select few products to cart? The plugin’s got you covered! A checkbox is provided at the end of each product field that allows your customers to check only products that catch their fancy. Once they are finished, they just have to click on the “Add Selected to Cart” and then checkout.
Note: The “Add Selected to Cart” button is also present at the bottom. With it, you won’t have to scroll back up if you’ve set the list of default entries to more than the default value.
Customer Friendly Product Table
The Product Table comes equipped with a diverse range of columns that you can show or hide from the front-end through the back-end settings. Again, the whole product table can be customized according to your preferences, and what you might want to show to your customers.
The Columns section has a list of product columns at the back-end that you can add or remove from the front-end at your convenience.
From “Product Name” to “Cart Actions”, if you don’t like the name of a particular product column, then fear not, because you can change the column name according to your preferences from the back-end.
You can set the image size of the Product Image section. Bear in mind, however, that the minimum size (in pixels) for the product image is 50px, while the maximum is 250px. Anything above or below that threshold will render this setting back to its default settings.
Description Text Length

If your store has products that come in different shapes or sizes you can enable the Variation Product checkbox to display a dropdown that showcases the product variations.
