WooCommerce: Move Social Sharing @ Single Product Page

JetPack sharing (and other social media sharing plugins) allow you to add social media sharing to your woocommerce products. However, the sharing buttons will only show at the bottom of the “Long description”.

How to move that up a bit, say between the short description and the product tabs? Simply add this function to your functions.php file editor:

// Remove them from under short description
remove_action( 'woocommerce_single_product_summary', 'woocommerce_template_single_sharing', 50 );

// Readd above product tabs
add_action( 'woocommerce_after_single_product_summary' , 'woocommerce_template_single_sharing', 5 );

Where to add this snippet?

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 files - if you need more guidance, please take a look at my free video tutorial "Where to Place WooCommerce Customization?"

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+.

  1. hi,

    i get the share buttons double when i use this fix. 1 on the old position and 1 on the new position.
    does anyone know how to delete the old position?

    thanks!

    1. Hey Jerry thanks for your comment! Weird, this should work properly. Can you do me a favour and temporarily switch to another theme like 2016, to see if the “duplication” still happens on the single product page? Thank you!

    2. Hi Jerry, I encounter the same issue here using the Divi Theme. Did you solve your issue without changing your theme?

  2. I’ll second that was magic!!!
    Thanks!

  3. awesome!!!! thank you

    1. You’re very welcome Mary!

  4. .. thanks Rodolfo, that was magic ..

    1. You’re welcome ๐Ÿ™‚

  5. Anyway to move these below the variations? Right now they appear below short dec. but above variation options? Thanks!

    1. Hey Brad, thanks for your comment. Just play with the number “33” and increase it gradually until the sharing goes under the variations ๐Ÿ™‚

  6. Thanks this was the only site that had the correct code to add to functions.php and helped find the proper woocommerce hook. It is missing the Likes code, however, which is explained on the JetPack site and might be useful for some people.
