WooCommerce: Move & Customize Upsells @ Single Product

Keeping WooCommerce upsells at the very bottom of the single product page it’s kinda boring. In my view, WooCommerce users want to know there are upsells even before they scroll down (you also might want that: upsell means more profit). Amazon does that too.

In this tutorial, we will see not only how to move them to the top, right below the Add to Cart, but also how to customize the upsells output to show just 2 columns and remove default WooCommerce “loop” elements such as the Add to Cart. Enjoy!

Move WooCommerce product upsells under the “Add to Cart” button and customize them

PHP Snippet 1: Move (a.k.a. remove, then re-add) Product Upsells Under Add to Cart @ Single Product Page

/**
 * @snippet       Move upsells - WooCommerce Single Product
 * @how-to        Watch tutorial @ https://businessbloomer.com/?p=19055
 * @author        Rodolfo Melogli

 */

remove_action( 'woocommerce_after_single_product_summary', 'woocommerce_upsell_display', 15 );

add_action( 'woocommerce_single_product_summary', 'woocommerce_upsell_display', 39 );

PHP Snippet 2: Change Product Upsells Output to 2 Columns @ Single Product Page

/**
 * @snippet       Edit upsells columns - WooCommerce Single Product
 * @how-to        Watch tutorial @ https://businessbloomer.com/?p=19055
 * @author        Rodolfo Melogli

 */

add_filter( 'woocommerce_upsell_display_args', 'bbloomer_change_number_related_products', 9999 );

function bbloomer_change_number_related_products( $args ) {
	$args['posts_per_page'] = 2;
	$args['columns'] = 2; 
	return $args;
}

PHP Snippet 3: Remove Default Elements From Product Upsells Output e.g. Add to Cart @ Single Product Page

/**
 * @snippet       Remove upsells Add to Cart - WooCommerce Single Product
 * @how-to        Watch tutorial @ https://businessbloomer.com/?p=19055
 * @author        Rodolfo Melogli
 * @compatible    WooCommerce 3.5.7
 * @donate $9     https://businessbloomer.com/bloomer-armada/
 */

add_action( 'woocommerce_before_shop_loop_item', 'bbloomer_customize_single_upsells' );

function bbloomer_customize_single_upsells() {
	global $woocommerce_loop;
	if ( $woocommerce_loop['name'] == 'up-sells' ) {
		// remove add to cart button
		remove_action( 'woocommerce_after_shop_loop_item', 'woocommerce_template_loop_add_to_cart', 10 );
	}
}


Where to add this code?

You can place PHP snippets at the bottom of your child theme functions.php file (before "?>" if you have it). CSS, on the other hand, goes in your child theme style.css file. Make sure you know what you are doing when editing such delicate files - if you need more guidance, please take a look at my free WooCommerce Customization video tutorial.

Does this snippet still work?

Please let me know in the comments if everything worked as expected. I would be happy to revise the snippet if you report otherwise (please provide screenshots). I have tested this code with Storefront theme, the WooCommerce version listed above and a WordPress-friendly hosting on PHP 7.
