Need to create a private WooCommerce category that only authorized users have access to? With the right tools, you can make one or more categories on your store completely private.

Then, you can either give automatic access to certain user roles that you specify or give users a password that they can use to access the private category.

This comes in handy if you need to create a:

  • Separate category of wholesale products that only certain users have access to.
  • Private category that’s just for members, like if you’re running a membership site and want to offer a special set of products to just those members.
  • Your own niche use. I’m sure you can think up lots of other site-specific uses!
