How can you redirect customers to a beautifully looking, custom, product-specific thank you page?
Thankfully you can simply add some PHP code to your functions.php and define a redirect to a custom URL (as opposed to the default order-received endpoint). This is a great chance for you to add specific up-sells, social media share and other information that could help you convert additional sales. Continue reading WooCommerce: Redirect to Custom Thank you Page
WooCommerce functions add the shipping method label on the Cart totals, on the left hand side of the price. This ruins the price amounts alignment (subtotal, shipping, taxes, total) and many clients have asked me to remove it completely. Here’s how you do it! Continue reading WooCommerce: Remove Shipping Labels @ Cart (e.g. “Flat Rate”)
A client, clearly from a European English-speaking country (not many, uh?), wanted to change the cart page when it says “Shipping” or “Shipping and Handling” in the totals table. The same string appears on the checkout page. As it’s only 1 string, my favourite method is by implementing a very simple PHP function, that needs to be placed in your functions.php file. Continue reading WooCommerce: edit or translate “Shipping and Handling” on the Cart & Checkout page
Sometimes you may want to add a prefix or a suffix to your prices. It could be something like “From…”, “Only…”, “…tax free” and so on. The first good news is this is very easy to do with a WooCommerce filter (remember, filters change the value of an existing variable, while actions add content). The second good news is that you don’t need to know PHP, just copy/paste my snippet! Continue reading WooCommerce: Add Prefix / Suffix to Product Prices
For some reason, sometimes you add products to cart but the cart page stays empty (even if you can clearly see the cart widget has products). But don’t worry – it might just be a simple cache issue (and if you don’t know what cache is that’s no problem either).
Here’s your “Empty Cart” troubleshooting check-list you can follow without any technical knowledge. Continue reading WooCommerce: Solving the “Cart is Empty” issue
In some countries there is no Postcode/ZIP (such as Ireland!). How do we make the Postcode/ZIP field not required, or how do we completely remove it? The answer is very simple. Continue reading WooCommerce: Disable PostCode/Zip Field on the Checkout Page
Interesting issue. A client found out that if you push the “enter” on your keyboard while on the WooCommerce Checkout page, the form will be automatically submitted. Ouch! What if the customer wanted to use a different shipping method? What if “enter” is pushed by mistake? So, here’s how you disable it. Continue reading WooCommerce: Disable Keyboard “Enter” on Checkout Page
On a website using USD and WooCommerce Subscriptions, a weird error showed up. After doing a bit of research, I found out that orders above $999.99 were showing as $1 on the Cart and Checkout page. Pretty weird! Here’s how I fixed it. Continue reading WooCommerce: Fix for Wrong Order Total
A very common issue: sometimes (mostly with affiliates online stores), WooCommerce product titles are way too long. On top of this, you may also want to keep the shop experience consistent, and make all the WooCommerce product titles of the same length. This is how you do it. Continue reading WooCommerce: How to Shorten Product Titles
This is a very cool snippet that many of you should use to increase your average order value. Ecommerce customers who are near the “free shipping” threshold will try to add more products to cart in order to qualify for free shipping. It’s pure psychology.
Here’s how we show a simple message on the WooCommerce Cart page. Enjoy! Continue reading WooCommerce: “You Only Need $$$ to Get Free Shipping!” @ Cart
When importing a big export file from another site, or when installing dummy data from your template developer, the error “the uploaded file exceeds the upload_max_filesize directive in php.ini” is likely to show. Here’s what you can do to fix it. Continue reading WooCommerce: Fix the “uploaded file exceeds the upload_max_filesize directive in php.ini” error
I think this is a major flow in WooCommerce and I’m surprised they still haven’t thought about it! A client of mine had to create a brand new payment gateway – but unless you login to WordPress you can’t find out what the payment method was from the order emails. Here’s how to fix it. Continue reading WooCommerce: Add Payment Method to Order Emails
Interesting WooCommerce customization here. A client of mine asked me to hide/remove prices from the shop page and category pages as she wanted to drive more customers to the single product pages (i.e. increasing the click-through rate).
As usual, a simple PHP snippet does the trick. I never recommend to use CSS to “hide” prices, as they would still be visible in the code – PHP stops the prices from loading, so they’re invisible to the user. Continue reading WooCommerce: Hide Prices on the Shop & Category Pages
If the WooCommerce product sorting functionality (“Default Sorting” dropdown) is a waste of space or you don’t need that select box at all, you may want to remove it.
This PHP solution is simply cleaner than CSS – and no matter if you code or not, you just need to copy/paste my snippet in your theme’s functions.php. Continue reading WooCommerce: How to Remove the “Default Sorting” Dropdown
When you run the WordPress Import Tool from an .xml file belonging to another website (included dummy data from template developers), WooCommerce product images don’t get imported! HOW ANNOYING! Here’s how I fixed it. Continue reading WooCommerce: How to Export/Import Product Featured Images
Mostly when the long description and additional information are short, you may want to move this block of content to the right hand side of the product image – as opposed to “waste” a lot of space underneath it. Here’s how you move the product tabs! Continue reading WooCommerce: Move Product Tabs Under the Short Description
A very annoying thing this is. If one of your WooCommerce shipping methods is Free, a label (Free) will appear next to it. It cannot be deleted via CSS as some WooCommerce function adds it via code to the shipping method label. So how do we deactivate it? Continue reading WooCommerce: Remove (free) in Shipping Method Label @ Cart
A client of mine asked me to add some additional text to the thank you page and the customer order email. In both cases, my client wanted to show an immediate upsell to get buyers to go back to the website and buy again with a coupon code. Continue reading WooCommerce: How to Add Content to a Specific Order Email
A client of mine wanted to add some text to the thank you page, the page that customers see after they place an order on WooCommerce. In her case, she wanted to add a special offer in order to entice buyers to go back to the website and buy again. Continue reading WooCommerce: Add Content to the Thank You Page
This is a cool function you can apply to any payment gateways for any order threshold. for example, you may want to disable bank transfers if orders are below $10, or disable PayPal payments if orders are above a certain cart total. Here’s what I did. Continue reading WooCommerce: How to Disable PayPal on Orders Above $100
