How to bulk enable reviews in WooCommerce


  1. Paul

    Thanks for the info! I was looking for a way to bulk enable reviews in WooCommerce and as you mentioned, I was surprised as well to see that there was no way of doing it by default. This did the trick!

    Where exactly inside Woo do I find this new ability to bulk edit? Spent the last 20 minutes looking for where to change the setting after installing and activating the plugin. Might have been some good info to include in your article.

    1. I assumed that ‘bulk editing’ products would be self explanatory, but I can see why it’s confusing. I’ve updated the article, adding instructions on bulk editing.

    Installed and activated the plugin, when I am using it it errors my products page to ‘503 Service Unavailable. The server is temporarily busy, try again later!’. I click the back button and it has bulk updated the products so it is working, do you have any ideas on how to stop getting the 503 message? Thank you

    1. Hi Ellie,

      I’m assuming you activated WooCommerce here… If you’re running into 503 errors I’d guess your server is struggling to keep up. Check your error logs – they should give you a solid hint.

  4. Wonderful you saved my life

  5. Thank you for sharing! :)

    Thank you, works great…

  7. You can add the code snippet to your functions.php file rather than create a plugin if you’d rather.

    1. Yes, that certainly works as well. If you go this route and use an actively developed or premium theme, be sure to add it to functions.php in a child theme.

    Could you suggest to me a trick or plugin for WordPress:⁣

    Once the customer submitted a review – it’ll go across all selected products automatically.⁣

    Thank you in advance.

    1. Hi Ariel,
      I’m not aware of a current plugin that will do this, sorry. BTW, why would you want someone to write a single review on multiple products?

  10. It works like a charm! Thank you, you saved me from hours editing …

    1. Nice, glad it worked for you :)
