How to Output the WooCommerce SKU via Function or Shortcode

We use WooCommerce for many of the simple e-commerce websites we build. It’s a simple yet powerful WordPress plugin, and a pleasure to develop with.

Here’s a handy tip for anyone wanting to create a function and shortcode to display a product’s SKU code.

Simply copy and paste the following code into your functions.php file:

function display_woo_sku() {

	global $product;
	return $product->get_sku();

add_shortcode( 'woo_sku', 'display_woo_sku' );


This function can either be used in a template file or within an actual product/post.

To use it within a template:

echo display_woo_sku();

To use it within a post, just use the shortcode: [woo_sku]
