Search By SKU In Woocommerce

If you would like your customers to be able to search by your product SKU field in Woocommerce then simply add this code to your theme’s functions.php file.

/* Add sku to product search */
function search_by_sku( $search, $query_vars ) {
    global $wpdb;
    if(isset($query_vars->query['s']) && !empty($query_vars->query['s'])){
        $args = array(
            'posts_per_page'  => -1,
            'post_type'       => 'product',
            'meta_query' => array(
                array(
                    'key' => '_sku',
                    'value' => $query_vars->query['s'],
                    'compare' => 'LIKE'
                )
            )
        );
        $posts = get_posts($args);
        if(empty($posts)) return $search;
        $get_post_ids = array();
        foreach($posts as $post){
            $get_post_ids[] = $post->ID;
        }
        if(sizeof( $get_post_ids ) > 0 ) {
                $search = str_replace( 'AND (((', "AND ((({$wpdb->posts}.ID IN (" . implode( ',', $get_post_ids ) . ")) OR (", $search);
        }
    }
    return $search;
    
}
add_filter( 'posts_search', 'search_by_sku', 999, 2 );
