If the sort order you changed is not working on your Shop page, please check below is set properly.

  2. Select “Woocommerce” from left and go to “Product Catalogue”
  3. Now here check for “Default Product Sorting”.
  4. Make sure it is set to “Default sorting (custom ordering + name)”

If you have huge list of product and the plugin is not saving the sort order changes

Ask your web hosting provider to increase memory_limit and max_execution_time and try updating sort order after that.

This will fix the issue.
