How to move WooCommerce category description to bottom of page

May 22, 2019 | WooCommerce Tips | 9 comments

For SEO reasons you should have good text on your WooCommerce category pages. But, you may want to display your products first. Add the function below to your child theme functions.php file.
// move category description to bottom of pages
remove_action( 'woocommerce_archive_description', 'woocommerce_taxonomy_archive_description', 10 );
add_action( 'woocommerce_after_shop_loop', 'woocommerce_taxonomy_archive_description', 100 );


  1. Hi thanks for the tip. What would be the hook code for the same thing but for the description of the product tag taxonomies?

  2. Hmm. Splitting up the category description would be tricky. I’d probably try to use conditions in a layout maybe?

  3. I was searching for this but couldn’t find it until I reached your website. Thanks for helping
    I would also like to know that is there any way by that we can show some content above the products and the rest content after the products in the category?
    please, let me know if you have a way to solve this.

  4. Such a big help! I don’t think anyone wants to read a bunch of stuff before looking at the products…

  5. Awesome! Glad it worked for you!
