To sort WooCommerce products by Advanced Custom Fields (ACF) value, you can use the following steps:

  1. Install and activate the "Advanced Custom Fields" plugin on your WordPress site.
  2. Add a custom field to your products using ACF. For example, you can add a custom field called "price" to store the price of each product.
  3. Edit each product and enter the value for the custom field you created using ACF.
  4. Use the following code snippet in your theme's functions.php file to modify the product query and sort products by ACF value:
add_filter( 'woocommerce_get_catalog_ordering_args', 'custom_woocommerce_get_catalog_ordering_args' );

function custom_woocommerce_get_catalog_ordering_args( $args ) {
    $args['meta_key'] = 'price'; // Replace 'price' with the name of your ACF custom field
    $args['orderby'] = 'meta_value_num';
    $args['order'] = 'ASC'; // You can change this to 'DESC' for descending order

    return $args;

  1. Save the changes in the functions.php file and refresh your site to see the products sorted by the ACF value you specified.

By following these steps, you can easily sort WooCommerce products based on the values stored in ACF custom fields.
