Hide WooCommerce for Unregistered Users in WordPress

You can hide the core pages of WooCommerce from unregistered users using a simple WordPress redirect function called template_redirect.

This may come in handy if the woocommerce component is still in development or has a delayed release or is for WordPress registered users only.

Add to your functions.php file

//Dont copy the above opening php tag
//Hide WooCommerce from non-logged in users
function woocommerce_hide_non_registered() {
if( ( is_shop() || is_product() || is_product_category() ) && ! is_user_logged_in() ) {
wp_redirect( site_url( '/' ) );
add_action( 'template_redirect','woocommerce_hide_non_registered' );
view raw woo.php hosted with ❤ by GitHub

The code will essentially redirect any user that is not logged in to a redirect page – this is declared in the wp_redirect() component which above is set to the home page, to set it to another page just change the value for the site_url()
