WooCommerce is one of the best e-commerce solutions that gives you complete control to sell anything. WooCommerce’s biggest benefit is that user has nearly endless customization options to exercise with their products, without having to know too much about the technical side of things. If you want to increase the features and capabilities of your online store, you may need to install extensions or sometimes we use code snippets to customize the functionalities.

In this post, I’ve shared some code snippets to hide or remove the quantity (number of items) field from WooCommerce Product. This may require when you want your customers to order or buy only one item at a time that is disabling the ability to add or subtract quantity. Let’s find how we can hide or remove the quantity field from WooCommerce Product.

Method 1: Using Option Sold Individually in Edit Product Page

How to disable the quantity field To Sold Individually - Hide or remove the quantity field from WooCommerce Product


Method 2: Using WordPress built in hook or filter, When you already added lots of products

This code snippets can be used when you realize, you need to hide or remove the quantity but there are lots of products.

/** * @desc Remove in all product type */
function woo_remove_all_quantity_fields( $return, $product ) {
  return true;
add_filter( 'woocommerce_is_sold_individually', 'woo_remove_all_quantity_fields', 10, 2 );

Method 3: Hide or remove the quantity field from particular type of product

/** @Hide from different product type group */
function woo_remove_all_quantity_fields( $return, $product ) {
    switch ( $product->product_type ) :
        case "variable":
            return true;
        case "grouped":
            return true;
        case "external":
            return true;
        default: // simple product type
            return true;

add_filter( 'woocommerce_is_sold_individually', 'woo_remove_all_quantity_fields', 10, 2 );
Warning: using this option will makes it impossible to have a product more than once in your shopping cart. Subsequently clicking on “Add to cart” button will trigger a warning that this product can be added only once in your cart.

Method 4: Hide Woo-commerce quantity field using CSS

/** @Hide quantity using CSS */
function hide_quantity_using_css() {
    if ( is_product() ) {
    <style type="text/css">.quantity, .buttons_added { width:0; height:0; display: none; visibility: hidden; }</style>
add_action( 'wp_head', 'hide_quantity_using_css' );

  • How can I add
    the quantity of 2 products per purchase ?

    the woocommerce standard is the quantity of 1 product individually
    but I want to put the quantity of 2 products per purchase

    Do not let the customer change the quantity
    the customer can only buy 2 products per purchase
    without decreasing or increasing the quantity
