WooCommerce: Add Product to Cart Programmatically

Quite an interesting functionality! a WooCommerce client required to have the cart pre-filled with one product as soon as the customer accessed the website. I don’t remember the exact reason, but this could be useful when you want to give them a free product by default, or you want to send your visitors straight to checkout with a product already in the cart. Let’s see how this snippet works! Continue reading WooCommerce: Add Product to Cart Programmatically

WooCommerce Visual Hook Guide: Cart Page

I’ve put together a visual (yet, you can copy/paste!) hook guide for the WooCommerce Cart Page. If you like this and it is helpful to you, let me know in the comments and I’ll create another one for the checkout, single product page and my account page.

You can find WooCommerce Cart hooks quickly and easily by seeing their actual locations. Great thing is – all you need to do in your functions.php is “add_action(‘place-hook-here’,’your-PHP-function-here’);” and you can place your custom functions anywhere on the WooCommerce Cart Page. Enjoy!

WooCommerce: How to Hide a Cart Table Column

There are many reasons why you may want to do this. Sometimes you just want to make it easier for your customers. The less information you show the better 🙂

Some other times,  you may have specific requirements. Well, hiding a Cart Table column is actually very easy – and despite this can be done with PHP I believe the CSS way is way faster. Here’s how it’s done! Continue reading WooCommerce: How to Hide a Cart Table Column

WooCommerce: Apply Coupon Programmatically if Product @ Cart

Users can manually enter a coupon code, refresh the Cart and see their discount apply… or you can do that automatically (or “programmatically” as we say in the dark web) when a user adds a product to the WooCommerce Cart 🙂

All you’ve got to do is creating a coupon, and then a PHP function will do the whole work. Automation is the best thing in the world! Continue reading WooCommerce: Apply Coupon Programmatically if Product @ Cart

WooCommerce: edit or translate “Shipping and Handling” on the Cart & Checkout page

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.

WooCommerce: Solving the “Cart is Empty” issue

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

WooCommerce: “You Only Need $$$ to Get Free Shipping!” @ Cart

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!

WooCommerce: Save & Display Order Total Weight

For tracking purposes, or maybe because your shop manager needs to be aware of this, saving the total weight of each order and displaying it on the single order admin page is quite simple.

That’s right – WooCommerce does not save this value by default. You either need to save it yourself into the “order meta” or recalculate the weight based on the order items and their quantities. Here, we’ll cover option one (saving is better than calculating in regard to performance).

Enjoy 🙂
