WooCommerce Catalog Visibility Options allows you to transform your WooCommerce store into an online catalog mode by removing eCommerce functionality. It may sound strange, but it’s the perfect solution for showcasing a catalog of products which aren’t currently for sale online. When you want to start selling, you can do so with the flick of a switch.

Woocommerce Catalog Visibility Options – Settings
In other words, there are plenty of options. In order to get started, you should go to Woocommerce -> Settings. Then start configuring the settings:
From here, you can enable and disable the purchases. You can enable them for Logged In Users, too. This means that you can allow or not the users to buy things from your store.
If you click on prices, you can either enable, disable or enable them only for logged in users, just like above. Hiding the prices can be a great idea if you don’t want your users to know how much the next available product costs.
Going further, you can add a text to the catalog add to cart button and add text next to the price text. Write down something like “Get it now”.
What is more, you can add alternate content to your products, which is an awesome feature.
This can be great idea if your store has some products which are unavailable yet. So make an awesome user experience and hide the catalog if you really need to do so. Meanwhile, you can work on your products’ availability and then show the catalog when you really have all the products available.
Above, there are some location filter options. You can disable or enable the location filter functionality and set the location filter type: either by countries or by regions. Also set the location selection page: Your Location or any other page. Moreover, you can make the location selection required or not and allow changes to location after selection. The default is set to No, but if you really want to, you can set these to yes.
As for the location detection, you can either use Geo Location or not. The last setting deletes the cart upon location changes, but we’d recommend you to do not clear cart, because, sometimes, the location is not so essential.
In conclusion, you can set your available and unavailable products’ catalog and hide it from the rest of your shop. Begin making sites that convert with Woocommerce Catalog Visibility Options. Also check EffectIO for more awesome plugins that help your site rank & gain relevant traffic!
