How to Change the Featured Image on WooCommerce

Table of Contents

If you’re an online retailer using WooCommerce, one of the features you probably love is the ability to put a featured image on your product pages. This photo is the primary visual that grabs your potential customer’s attention and lets them know what your product is all about. However, sometimes you’ll need to swap out or update that image to make sure it stays relevant and effective. In this post, I’ll break down the simple steps to change the featured image on WooCommerce, so you can keep your site looking fresh and inviting.

Step One: Find Your Product

To change the featured image in WooCommerce, you’ll need to start by finding the product you want to edit. Go to your WordPress dashboard and click on Products. Look for the product you want to edit and click on it to open it up for editing.

Step Two: Replace the Image

Once you’re in edit mode for your product, scroll down a bit until you see the Product Image section. There you’ll see the featured image for your product with the option to change it. Click on the button that says “set product image” and choose the image you’d like to replace it with from your media library or upload a new one. Be sure to make any additional updates, like cropping or adjusting the size before you save your changes.

Step Three: Check Your Work

Once you’ve swapped out your image, take a quick look at your product page to make sure everything looks good. Your new featured image should appear in place of the old one in the same spot on the page. If something didn’t quite work out the way you wanted, you can always go back and tweak your changes.

Step Four: Update or Publish Your Product

After you’ve made sure everything is looking great, it’s time to update or publish your product. This will make your changes go live on your site for all your visitors to see. Check out your page one more time to make sure everything is working as it should be!


Changing the featured image on WooCommerce is a quick and simple process that can be done in just a few clicks. This enables you to keep your site looking fresh and up-to-date, which is essential for attracting and retaining customers. By following the four simple steps outlined in this post, you can swap out the primary image on any product page in no time at all. Whether you’re updating your site regularly or just need to make an occasional change, you now have the tools and knowledge you need to get the job done!
