WooCommerce: Show In Stock Products First @ Shop

We’ve already seen how to add a custom “Product Sorting” option to the “Default Sorting” dropdown in the Shop page.

The task I was presented with, however, was to display items based on a custom “meta key”. Now, if you have no idea what a “meta key” is, don’t worry too much. For example, “stock status” is one of these keys, and therefore you can sort products by that.

Anyway, let’s abandon the Japanese for now (hey, unless you speak Japanese!) and get into the coding – as usual, simply copy/paste this little plugin in your functions.php and you’ll get the wanted result 🙂 Continue reading WooCommerce: Show In Stock Products First @ Shop

WooCommerce: Add Checkout Fees Based on Radio Button Choice (Ajax)

This is a great WooCommerce snippet (or plugin, if you wish to call it like that) for those who want to provide another layer of checkout fees. For example, you might need to display custom checkout radio buttons to pick packaging types, gift wrapping, specific services and whatever can increase your AOV (Average Order Value). Radio button selection must work with “Ajax” – which means as soon as the radio button is chosen, checkout must refresh in order to display the updated fees and totals.

Something similar (and also more complex, such as offering store products) is achieved by the WooCommerce Checkout Add-Ons Plugin sold on the official WooCommerce.com marketplace. But in this article, we take a look at custom coding – either way you’ve got something to play with! Continue reading WooCommerce: Add Checkout Fees Based on Radio Button Choice (Ajax)

WooCommerce: Show Custom Short Description When Empty

The WooCommerce product short description is that piece of content that appears on the right hand side of the featured image above the add to cart button. This is, of course, unless you forgot to enter the short description under Product > Edit Product!

But in case you forgot to enter it, or alternatively want to display a global short description, here’s a quick PHP snippet for you. Enjoy! Continue reading WooCommerce: Show Custom Short Description When Empty

WooCommerce: Add Column to Orders Table @ WP Dashboard

The WooCommerce Orders Table, which can be found under WP Dashboard > WooCommerce > Orders, provides us with 7 default columns: Order – Date – Status – Billing – Ship to – Total – Actions. This is used by shop managers to have an overview of all orders, before eventually clicking on a specific one.

So the question is: how can we display additional columns to that same orders table, so that we can immediately visualize an order custom field, a specific product contained in the order, or anything order-related that can be “calculated” once we have access to the $order variable? Continue reading WooCommerce: Add Column to Orders Table @ WP Dashboard

WooCommerce: Hide Checkout Billing Fields if Virtual Product @ Cart

If you sell downloadable/virtual products and need to simplify your WooCommerce checkout when such product type is in the Cart, you’ve come to the right place!

Here’s a simple snippet to check if there are only “virtual” products in the Cart and if yes, all the billing fields and order notes are hidden (but name and email address). Go test this on your development environment and let me know if this works! Continue reading WooCommerce: Hide Checkout Billing Fields if Virtual Product @ Cart

WooCommerce: Display Custom Filters @ WP Dashboard > Products

If you go to WordPress Dashboard > Products you will find default product admin filters such as “Select a category”, “Filter by product type”, “Filter by stock status”. What if you want to add more custom filters to let your shop managers find products easily?

For example, you could add “Filter by product tag” (“product tags” are one of the two default WooCommerce “taxonomies” together with “product categories”). Or, if you use custom taxonomies such as product brands, you could add a “Filter by product brand” dropdown.

Thankfully this is super easy – and here comes the proof 🙂 Continue reading WooCommerce: Display Custom Filters @ WP Dashboard > Products

WooCommerce: Set Custom Order Status for New Orders

All WooCommerce orders go to either “processing”, “completed”, “on-hold” and other default order statuses based on the payment method and product type.

Sometimes these statuses are not enough. For example, you might need to mark certain orders in a different way for tracking, filtering, exporting purposes. Or you might want to disable default emails by bypassing the default order status changes.

Either way, setting a custom order status automatically once the order is processed is quite easy. And today we’ll see which PHP snippets you need in order to make this work! Continue reading WooCommerce: Set Custom Order Status for New Orders

How to Improve the Speed of my WooCommerce Store?

This is a guest post by Simon Tomkins of CommerceGurus – if you like the article, make sure to thank him in the comments!

The speed of your WooCommerce store is incredibly important when it comes to converting visitors into customers. Research has shown that even a one second delay can result in 7% of lost orders.

If your WooCommerce site is making $1,000 per day, that one second delay in load time could potentially cost you $25,000 in annual lost sales – not small change! If you are the lucky owner of Amazon, a one second delay in 2017 could have meant a $178 billions * 0,07 = $12.5 billions loss in net revenue…

Once again, a slow WooCommerce website is costing you money.

I spent a great deal of time researching website speed and performance optimization before creating our Shoptimizer WooCommerce theme. Some of the statistics are staggering:

  • 73% of mobile users have abandoned a site due to it taking too long
  • 47% of people expect a site to load in 2 seconds or less
  • 79% of people who encounter a performance issue won’t return again to buy

So, a slow WooCommerce site means unhappy visitors and the loss of potential revenue to competitors.

And today we’ll briefly see what you can do to speed up your WooCommerce website – these are proven performance optimization tricks that can have an immediate impact on your sales conversion rate 🙂 Continue reading How to Improve the Speed of my WooCommerce Store?

15 Best Food & Restaurant WooCommerce Themes

The most efficient way to turn your restaurant / food business into a money-making machine is to cater to your customer’s needs better than you do now. Supposing you have a modern interior design, tasty food, friendly atmosphere, professional personnel, etc… what else can you do for your business?

WooCommerce: Get Currently Selected Variation ID

We’ve seen a lot of PHP so far on Business Bloomer – WooCommerce after all is a bunch of PHP files! However, sometimes PHP is just not enough, mostly when you need to work with variable products and the “currently selected variation”.

In fact, WooCommerce uses jQuery (a JavaScript Library) to handle variations on the frontend and show conditional content (variation price, description, add to cart) based on the dropdown selection. So, to detect the current variation ID we must use JQuery as well. And here’s how! Continue reading WooCommerce: Get Currently Selected Variation ID

WooCommerce: Hide Mini-Cart Widget (Dropdown)

Less is more (sometimes). On this website, I’m already forcing max 1 product in the Cart and automatically redirecting users to Checkout upon add to Cart.

As a result, I definitely didn’t need the whole “Mini-Cart Widget Dropdown Content” either. To test, try to “hover” onto the shopping cart icon on the top right, and you’ll notice there is no cart dropdown 🙂

Well, this is how it’s done – I love when a complex thing is fixed with one simple line of PHP! Continue reading WooCommerce: Hide Mini-Cart Widget (Dropdown)

WooCommerce: Rename “Place Order” Button @ Checkout

The “Place Order” button is the call to action you want ALL customers to take, right? Well, changing its label to a more specific, custom message could mean a small increase in sales conversion.

Thankfully, you can try this with as low as 4 lines of PHP, even if you don’t know coding. Just copy and paste the snippet by following the instructions below and give your unique store a unique checkout message 🙂 Continue reading WooCommerce: Rename “Place Order” Button @ Checkout

WooCommerce: Add Product to Cart When Visiting a Specific Page

We’ve already seen how to add a product to cart automatically when a user enters your website. However, I needed a different functionality on this same website, and specifically I wanted a product added to cart only when a user like you visits a specific WordPress page ID.

If you wish to test, go to my free video tutorial page called “How to Customize the WooCommerce Single Product Page“. As soon as the page loads a product is magically added to cart, so that the WooCommerce Checkout on that same page is populated with the hidden item. If you go to my Cart page right after visiting that landing page, you can verify there is a product in there.

So, how did I do it? Continue reading WooCommerce: Add Product to Cart When Visiting a Specific Page

WooCommerce: Remove, Rename, Add “Default Sorting” Options @ Shop

We’ve seen in the past how to completely remove the “Default Sorting” dropdown that shows in the WooCommerce Shop, Category and Product Archive pages.

Sometimes, however, you might just need to remove one of the default options, rename a sorting option accordingly to your needs or even add a brand new sorting method. As usual, a few lines of PHP are sufficient to achieve anything, thanks to WooCommerce hooks and filters. Continue reading WooCommerce: Remove, Rename, Add “Default Sorting” Options @ Shop

WooCommerce: Add Content Below the Single Product Page Images

One of the latest WooCommerce versions introduced an optimized product gallery on the single product page. If your products have multiple images and therefore use the product gallery, you might want to also add content below the gallery itself. But…

If you’re familiar with WooCommerce customization and WooCommerce hooks (and specifically the ones of the Single Product Page), you’ll know it’s now impossible to add content under the image as it used to be done with the “woocommerce_product_thumbnails” hook.

In fact, the new gallery completely replaces the default content via JQuery, including that hook. Adding content is not as easy as it used to be. So, here’s the workaround (you might want to check how it behaves on mobile or maybe completely hide this for small devices – this has been tested on desktop only).

WooCommerce: How to Hide “Shipping Calculator” Fields @ Cart

The “Shipping Calculator” can be enabled via the WooCommerce settings in order to give the user a way to calculate their shipping fees before getting to the Checkout Page. Usually they fill out the country, state, city and postcode form fields and click on “Update Totals” in order to calculate the shipping.

However, what if you only calculate shipping based on country? Or what if you only charge by zip code / postcode? In this case, you will need to hide the input fields you don’t need, and make UX better.

Well, here are some WooCommerce filters you can use from WooCommerce version 3.4 onwards to hide the fields you like (apart from country, which is mandatory). Continue reading WooCommerce: How to Hide “Shipping Calculator” Fields @ Cart

WooCommerce: Detect if Current Category Page is a Subcategory

A client of mine had to style a WooCommerce product category page but ONLY if it was a subcategory. So I decided to add a “subcategory” class to the HTML body, so that they could target this in their custom CSS.

As usual, the PHP is quite easy: I check if the current page is a product category, then if the category has “parents” and only in this case add a body class. Pretty easy! Continue reading WooCommerce: Detect if Current Category Page is a Subcategory

WooCommerce: Disable Customer Order Email for Free Orders

There are times when you sell free products to give customers access to a membership, an online course, or for other reasons. In this cases, you might not want to send them the “Order Completed” email, as the follow-up work is done by your email marketing software or they are automatically redirected to the resource upon checkout.

Of course, you definitely want to keep the “Order Completed” emails for orders that are not $0. Unfortunately, the method suggested by WooCommerce which “unhooks the emails” cannot be used together with a conditional check (in our case we need to verify if the Order total is $0), so a workaround is needed. Here’s the fix. Continue reading WooCommerce: Disable Customer Order Email for Free Orders
