 remove_action( 'woocommerce_after_shop_loop_item', 'woocommerce_template_loop_add_to_cart');
remove_action( 'woocommerce_single_product_summary', 'woocommerce_template_single_add_to_cart'); 
  • After adding those lines the function becomes like this
 function wc() {

  remove_action( 'woocommerce_after_shop_loop_item', 'woocommerce_template_loop_add_to_cart');
    remove_action( 'woocommerce_single_product_summary', 'woocommerce_template_single_add_to_cart');
