WooCommerce. How to exclude subcategory products from category listing page

This means that when viewing a main/parent category you will only view products of this single category and not the products of all containing subcategories.

This can be resolved by editing a core file of the child theme. Please follow the steps listed below :

  1. Navigate to Appearance > Editor and locate custom-functions.php of your child theme:

    how_to_exclude_subcategory_products_from_category_listing_page.1

  2. Open it to edit and paste the following code before the closing tag ?>

    function exclude_product_cat_children($wp_query) {
    if ( isset ( $wp_query->query_vars['product_cat'] ) && $wp_query->is_main_query()) {
        $wp_query->set('tax_query', array(
                                        array (
                                            'taxonomy' => 'product_cat',
                                            'field' => 'slug',
                                            'terms' => $wp_query->query_vars['product_cat'],
                                            'include_children' => false
                                        )
                                     )
        );
      }
    }
    add_filter('pre_get_posts', 'exclude_product_cat_children');
