** We are discontinuing support of this plugin **
Due to many themes and caching plugins either having support for Lazy loading or overriding the hooks that this plugin uses, we have decided to no longer support this plugin
Lazy Load for WooCommerce includes the functionality to properly append Lazy Load into the image loop for WooCommerce in product listings (shop category and product listing). It has been tested against WooCommerce 2.6.4 and should work back to WooCommerce 2.1.0 (untested). This does not apply to the individual product image, but anywhere they are used in the loop (by default, the unordered list).

Setting up the placeholder for the category and product images that will be used for Lazy Load (it will match the shop catalog image dimensions).
Does this plugin work with the newest WP/WooCommerce version and also older versions?
Since it’s fairly basic it should. It’s a very lightweight plugin.
You will need to manually call in jQuery support if you don’t already have it running (see Installation Instructions).
Your WooCommerce installation needs to support
shop_catalog which has been an initiated image size since WooCommerce 1.6.2 at least.
Secondarily, there should be support for WooCommerce’s placeholder image (not an absolute requirement for loading since you can put in your own, but the tab may not be visible or in the same location in older versions of WooCommerce). The placeholder image function for WooCommerce has been updated to
wc_placeholder_img_src so previous instances of
woocommerce_placeholder_img_src have been deprecated as of 2.1.0.
What is WooCommerce’s image loop?
We are basically replacing WooCommerce’s hook of
woocommerce_template_loop_product_thumbnail with our own (for Lazy Load). This is used in the
content-product.php template file. If your WooCommerce theme has been customized (YOURTHEME/woocommerce/content-product.php) then in some cases this has been altered. The hook runs as part of
do_action( 'woocommerce_before_shop_loop_item_title' ).
We’ve done the same in version 1.3 of our plugin with
If I have a custom image loop, can I still use the plugin?
It would probably be best if you were to manually configure the source LazyLoad script (http://www.appelsiini.net/projects/lazyload) to reduce code bloat. It is possible to use our plugin and then add the class “lazy” to your image and replace the image src with your placeholder image and add
data-original to link to your thumbnail. You would also need to add width/height to the image element.
