WooCommerce: Display & Save WP User Field (e.g. user_url) @ Checkout

I’m curious to know how many had the same problem. At WooCommerce checkout, some user fields such as billing_name, shipping_address_1, etc. are automatically saved into the “WordPress User Profile” upon processing.

But what if we also wanted to display and save another existing user field, such as “user_twitter”, or “user_url”, which you can find in the WP User Profile by default? Well, this is very easy: first, we add a custom checkout field; then, we make sure that when the checkout is processed we save that field correctly!

WooCommerce: Enable Payment Gateway Only for “Order Pay Checkout”

A video tutorial will be done soon, but I’ve basically started invoicing my own clients with WooCommerce itself. I was using a third party system and I said to myself – why not using WooCommerce instead? So I did it, it’s actually pretty straight forward.

One of the most important functionalities I needed to customize was the “Bank Transfer” (bacs) payment option. Of course I don’t want this to be visible on the standard checkout page, however for those clients I invoice manually I definitely needed it.

We’ve seen in the past how to disable payment gateways given certain conditions… but how do we “enable” one? Continue reading WooCommerce: Enable Payment Gateway Only for “Order Pay Checkout”

WooCommerce: How to Remove “What is PayPal?” @ Checkout

One of my premium course students had an apparently simple requirement. Her client didn’t want to show the “What is PayPal?” text (and link) on the checkout page. In fact, why sending users away from the checkout? And who doesn’t know what PayPal is nowadays? Well, let’s see how this is done via a simple “filter” – but this time I’d like to show you a step-by-step tutorial! Let me know what you think about this in the comments 🙂 Continue reading WooCommerce: How to Remove “What is PayPal?” @ Checkout

WooCommerce: Add House Number Field @ Checkout

A Dutch fan told me in Holland they’re really strict about addresses 🙂 In particular, all Dutch billing/shipping addresses require the “House Number”.

This must be therefore placed on the checkout, AFTER & BESIDE the Address_1 field and made required. Also, it’s a good idea to make this show in the Admin Order, the thank you page and the notification Emails. Continue reading WooCommerce: Add House Number Field @ Checkout

WooCommerce: How to Add a Custom Checkout Field (PHP)

A client of mine runs online courses for acupuncturists via Sensei LMS. US Law requires an “Acupuncture Registration Number” in order for students to get the final online certificate. So, this task was a little bit more complex than usual as it had two major issues:

1) This new checkout field does not belong to billing or shipping (order information), but instead it’s a unique user field that needs to be saved and retrieved multiple times if necessary

2) This field does need to be shown at checkout only if a certain product category is in the cart (“online courses”, as opposed to e.g. “books”)

So, here’s how you do it – hope it helps you understand that anything is possible via PHP! Continue reading WooCommerce: How to Add a Custom Checkout Field (PHP)

WooCommerce: Disable Postcode/ZIP Validation @ Checkout

An annoying thing for sellers based in Ireland (for example), is that we still don’t use post codes (they recently introduced them, but nobody’s using them). So, in today’s task, I want to show you how to disable the “REQUIRED” feature of the postcode on the checkout page.

We already saw how to completely remove the PostCode/ZIP field… but this time we wish to leave it on the checkout, and just avoid a validation error if we don’t enter anything. Continue reading WooCommerce: Disable Postcode/ZIP Validation @ Checkout

WooCommerce: Add Privacy Policy Checkbox @ Checkout

Here’s a snippet regarding the checkout page. If you’ve been affected by GDPR, you will know you now need users to give you Privacy Policy consent. Or, you might need customer to acknowledge special shipping requirements for example.

So, how do we display an additional tick box on the Checkout page (together with the existing T&C checkbox)? Continue reading WooCommerce: Add Privacy Policy Checkbox @ Checkout

WooCommerce: Add Checkout Fee for a Payment Gateway (e.g. PayPal)

Here’s a simple PHP snippet to add a fee to the checkout for every payment or for a specific payment gateway. Please do remember that for certain payment gateways such as PayPal, adding checkout fees is currently against their Terms of Service so make sure to check this first. As usual, this needs to be copied and pasted in your child theme’s functions.php file. Enjoy! Continue reading WooCommerce: Add Checkout Fee for a Payment Gateway (e.g. PayPal)

WooCommerce: Set Default Billing State / Country @ Checkout

This is a simple PGP snippet that I successfully used on a bunch of websites in order to set the default Billing country or state. This is a great way to save the user some time during checkout (and therefore increase your conversion rate) in case you almost exclusively sell to customers located in a given country or state. Nothing else to say, just… enjoy! Continue reading WooCommerce: Set Default Billing State / Country @ Checkout
