    You start off describing the frustration I have had today trying to find a way to produce a downloadable or printable catalogue from Woocommerce. This look like exactly what I am looking for and your video / tutorial is very helpful in confirming that. I have sent links off to my client.
    I will share this on my network

      Hi Christopher, I’m glad it was helpful for you. Yes it’s surprising that there aren’t more WooCommerce plugins available to create a catalogue like this. And the best thing is that you can either use it as a printable catalogue or you can include ‘Add to Cart’ buttons and let people buy online. If you’re recommending the plugin to others then it’s worth signing up for the affiliate scheme as you can get 13% commission.

        Can you advise how you use it as a printable catalogue?
        Better yet, how do you create a pdf of the table so customers can download the whole list or per category/filter?

          Hi Mark, your customers can print the product catalog page directly from their browser.

          The plugin doesn’t come with a feature to save the product catalog as a PDF. There are various WordPress plugins that let you save a page as a PDF – I don’t know whether these will work with the product table, but it’s worth trying.

    Can I add columns with custom fields? I’m interested to include a column where the user can to download a PDF document directly (e.g. technical data sheet), And… I will use just catalog mode. Thanks!

      Hi Martin, yes you can show custom fields as columns in the table. Here’s a link to the instructions for this in the product catalog plugin knowledge base – https://barn2.co.uk/kb/product-table-columns/#custom-field-columns. You can use custom field columns to add download links to technical documents and data sheets.

      To do this, you need to add the full HTML for the download link into the custom field for each product – don’t just add the URL of the PDF. That way, the plugin will show it as a proper clickable link in the table.
