Comparison: Posts Table Pro and WooCommerce Product Table plugins

We have two dynamic WordPress table plugins, each designed to meet a specific need:

  • Posts Table Pro is our generic table plugin, perfect for listing WordPress pages, posts, or any custom post type (products, documents, jobs, members, events, etc.). While you can use it to display WooCommerce products in a basic list, it is not really designed for this purpose and is missing the dedicated features of our WooCommerce Product Table plugin.
  • WooCommerce Product Table is our dedicated WooCommerce table plugin, perfect for listing WooCommerce products in a one-page order form. It has extra features specific to WooCommerce, including add to cart buttons, product reviews, stock column, product variations, product filter widgets, and full support for all the standard product data in WooCommerce.

Need the features of both plugins? Posts Table Pro and WooCommerce Product Table are fully compatible with each other, so you can use both on the same site!
