Setup and Configuration ↑ Back to top

  1. Go to: WooCommerce > Settings > General.

  2. Scroll down to the Quick View section where you can enable one of two methods for displaying the Quick View pop-up:


  • Quick View Button. Insert a quick view button to be appended to the product loop.
  • Any non-ajax add-to-cart button e.g. variation cart buttons

3. Save changes.

How do you know if a button is a ‘non-ajax add-to-cart button’? When you select a shop button, does it reload the page? If it does, that is a non-Ajax button, this excludes the add-to-cart button.
