Some shortcodes in WooCommerce will ask you to enter a product category ID. This might be required in order to display specific product categories on a page, for example.

Finding Product Category IDs

To find your product category IDs, use the WordPress navigation menu and browse to Products -> Categories.

On the Product Categories page, hover over a product category and click on the “edit” link.

Once you’re on the Edit Category page, take a look at your web browser’s address bar. 

The ID= is followed by a number, which is your product category ID! There you go. Now use shortcodes to your heart’s delight.
