As a WooCommerce user, WooCommerce blogger and WooCommerce developer I often hear this question: “What’s the best hosting for WooCommerce?“.
Well, first and foremost, there is no “best” hosting for WooCommerce (and WordPress in general). There are so many choices out there that defining the “best” is impossible. Besides, if there were a “best” hosting platform, there would be only one hosting company left in business. Continue reading What’s the Best Hosting for a WooCommerce Website?
Recently I was on a coaching call with a client and the “Free Sample” challenge came up. Client has 400+ products on the website and had no intention of adding a free variation to each product manually.
So, I promised to myself I was going to study a different approach. And today you get it for free – nice! Needless to say, a comment and a social media share are much appreciated 🙂
Here’s the story: I’m working with one of my freelance clients and I need to show certain content in the Checkout (a product-specific “Terms and Conditions”) if such product is in the Cart.
Now, I’ve always looked for products in the Cart by “looping” through the Cart with a foreach (here, for example: Apply a Coupon Programmatically if a Product is in the Cart). But as I said, after some random research, I found out about another magic WooCommerce function: “find_product_in_cart()“. Which means finding a product in the Cart doesn’t require custom loops or complex PHP… it’s just a “one liner”. Enjoy!
Here’s a very simple snippet that achieves a very complex task – what if you wanted to force your Cart to charge a deposit or a fixed fee, no matter the product price?
Well, thankfully WooCommerce is pretty flexible and a lot of workarounds can be found. In this case, forcing the checkout to a fixed amount (e.g. $100) is as simple as applying a negative “cart fee” to make the total become $100.
While working on a workaround for a client, I had to hide a hidden product from the cart, checkout, order received and emails. Hidden products already don’t show on the shop and category pages, but they do show on the cart if they’re added to cart “programmatically”.
This is a very common task. As a WooCommerce store manager, sometimes you need to hide the SKU field on the single product page, while keeping it in the backend (Product Edit page) for order tracking and product import/export purposes.
Here’s a simple snippet you can use to remove the SKU immediately 🙂
A WooCommerce freelance client had a special request for their online store. And sometimes, just like physical stores, your WooCommerce website need to go on holiday! This means disabling cart, checkout and show a little notice on every WooCommerce page. Continue reading WooCommerce: Holiday/Pause/Closed Mode
The conditional tags of WooCommerce and WordPress (also “WooCommerce and WordPress Conditional Logic”) can be used in your functions.php to display content based on certain conditions. For example, you could display different content for different categories within a single PHP function.
Today we’ll focus on the “You may be interested In…” section, also called the “Cross-Sells” area. If a product that is in the cart has cross-sells (Edit Product > Product Data > Linked Products), this section will appear by default. Problem is – it is pretty ugly where it is now and distracts the user from identifying the “Proceed to Checkout” button, the most important CTA (Call To Action) of the Cart page.
