WooCommerce allows you to add extra tabs on a product page alongside description, reviews and additional information with the filter, woocommerce_product_tabs.

Let’s say you wanted 2 extra tabs – ‘Ingredients’ and ‘How To Use’ as the heading, you can use the filter woocommerce_product_tabs like so…

add_filter( 'woocommerce_product_tabs', 'woo_new_product_tab' );
 * Add 2 custom product data tabs
function woo_new_product_tab( $tabs ) {
	// Adds the new tab
	$tabs['ingredient_tab'] = array(
		'title' 	=> __( 'Ingredients', 'woocommerce' ),
		'priority' 	=> 15,
		'callback' 	=> 'ska_ingredients_callback'
        $tabs['work_tab'] = array(
		'title' 	=> __( 'How To Use', 'woocommerce' ),
		'priority' 	=> 15,
		'callback' 	=> 'ska_works_callback'

	return $tabs;


The array values are title for the Tab Title, the priority for how early it appears in the tab tow, lower numbers appear earlier and the callback which is the function called to output the tab’s content. Also checking first to see if the field exists – if(get_field(‘ska_works’)) so will not output tab is empty.

For the content of the tab you may wish to use a custom field as a text area with ACF – then echo the field name in the function callback…

function ska_ingredients_callback() {
        echo the_field('ska_ingredients');

function ska_works_callback() {
        echo the_field('ska_works');


This is how it will look

Woocommerce Tabs Extra Product

Here is how you can remove or re-order the tabs.

    Thanks for sharing. The Ingredients tab. What not all of the products have ingredients can the tab be hidden and only show if the data is in the field.

      I have updated the code with an if conditional so not to output if the field is empty

    It works but how to hide the tab if empty?

    What if title key value is spanish with special character. as in that case its showing blank tab without title.
    $tabs[‘ingredient_tab’] = array(
    ‘title’ => __( ‘Ficha técnica’, ‘woocommerce’ ),
    ‘priority’ => 15,
    ‘callback’ => ‘ska_ingredients_callback’

    Hi, i have problem like Ayah,
    the tabs are showing, but the content no. Thank you.

      Check all code is in functions.php – test with a simple string (See below response)

    I am using ACF and the content of the text area won’t show on the site even though I added the second code you provided, could you advise me further please?

    Thank you

      Both code snippets go in functions.php – to rule out an ACF issue – just echo out a string…

      function ska_ingredients_callback() {
      echo ‘what the blazes’;
