Remove Additional Information Tab WooCommerce Product Page

Published Categorized as Ecommerce Stores

Removing or renaming the additional information tab in WooCommerce Product Pages can be achieved in a couple of ways – both with and without custom code!

The Additional Information tab with WooCommerce Product Pages is used to display the weight, dimensions or additional attributes of a product in WooCommerce.

If you enter a weight or dimensions for a product the additional information tab on product pages will automatically appear.

If you don’t enter any weight or dimensions data for a product the additional information tab is automatically hidden unless you also select product attributes with “Visible on product page” checked – in which case, the additional information tab will once again be visible.


It’s still possible to remove the additional information tab on product pages even if you have selected product attributes or entered a weight or dimension for a product.

The WooCommerce Documentation provides some code based solutions on how to remove the additional information tab on a WooCommerce Product page.

If you’re trying to remove the additional information field from WooCommerce Checkout, you should look at this article showing how to edit WooCommerce Checkout and remove the Additional Information Checkout Field.

How To Remove Additional Information Tab on WooCommerce Product Page

The WooCommerce suggested solution requires that you modify the functions.php file, or use the Code Snippets plugin to add some additional code php code.

Here’s the snippet:

 * Remove product data tabs
add_filter( 'woocommerce_product_tabs', 'woo_remove_product_tabs', 98 );

function woo_remove_product_tabs( $tabs ) {

    unset( $tabs['additional_information'] );  	// Remove the additional information tab

    return $tabs;

We’re not a fan of code based solutions, so we always advise customising the WooCommerce Product page with the Divi Builder plugin and Divi Theme from Elegant Themes…

You can however add the above custom code into your WooCommerce site using the Code Snippets plugin – even if you don’t know how to code or anything about php code.

It’s very easy to get things wrong or create conflicts between pieces of code, especially if you’re entering multiple pieces of custom code. If you don’t know php it’s also VERY difficult to debug or troubleshoot WooCommerce issues.

How To Rename Additional Information Tab in WooCommerce

To rename the WooCommerce additional information tab you can use the following code, inserted via the Code Snippets Plugin:

 * Rename product data tabs
add_filter( 'woocommerce_product_tabs', 'woo_rename_tabs', 98 );
function woo_rename_tabs( $tabs ) {

	$tabs['additional_information']['title'] = __( 'Product Data' );	// Rename the additional information tab

	return $tabs;


As always – we don’t recommend using custom code to achieve these sorts of changes in WooCommerce. We always recommend designing a custom WooCommerce product page with a page builder – we specifically recommend using the Divi Page Builder – check it out here.
