Create a private store in WooCommerce

WooCommerce Members Only gives you the ability to create a private store in WooCommerce. Only the users that you choose can access. You can decide to hide all products and store content, or just products in certain categories.

How does it work?

When you install WooCommerce Members Only, you get a new tab in WooCommerce Settings.

This gives you all the options you need to start operating a private or members-only store or website.


WooCommerce Members Only has really simple settings.

Restriction Method

Choose from:

  • Log In Status – users need to be logged in to access the restricted content
  • Password – users need to enter a password to access the restricted content
  • User Role – users need to belong to a specified user role to access restricted content


Enter a list of passwords for users to access content.
