It’s live. And it’s alive and kicking.
#CustomizeWoo, my flagship Advanced WooCommerce Online Course for designers and DIY store owners, is now live.
In this post, I’m about to show you why I invested 151hrs 39mins 1secs of my time to build #CustomizeWoo and another 50+ hours to publish the updated version in June 2019, who I’m willing to help, and what the course looks like from the “inside”.
So, here’s the story. Here’s why #CustomizeWoo was born. Continue reading #CustomizeWoo: a WooCommerce Online Course for Designers
Our goal is to check if a Product with a specific Shipping Class is in the Cart, and consequently disabling Free Shipping if this is true. This is super useful when there are multiple items in the cart and you don’t want to give free shipping for certain orders. Continue reading WooCommerce: Disable Shipping Rate if Cart has Shipping Class
Today we take a look at the WooCommerce Checkout page and specifically at how to add a Custom Extra Fee for Non-Continental US States. You can do the exact same thing for a non-US State, as long as customers will feel comfortable in paying extra! Continue reading WooCommerce: Add Shipping Fee for Non-Continental States
Today we take a look at the WooCommerce Checkout page and our goal is to disallow placing an order to customers that enter a PO BOX address. I don’t remember where I got this snippet from, but either way I’m glad to share it again! Continue reading WooCommerce: Disallow Shipping to PO BOX Address
Today we take a look at the WooCommerce Minimum Order Amount. This snippet displays an error notification on the Cart Page and an error message @ Checkout Process if the order is below a set threshold. Continue reading WooCommerce: Define a Minimum Order Amount
Today we take a look at the WooCommerce Checkout and specifically at how to disable a payment gateway (e.g. PayPal) if certain product categories are in the cart. Continue reading WooCommerce: Disable Payment Method for Specific Category
Today we take a look at the WooCommerce Checkout Page and specifically at how to disable a payment gateway (for example PayPal) when a specific shipping method is selected (e.g. “local_pickup”). Enjoy! Continue reading WooCommerce: Disable Payment Gateway For Specific Shipping Method
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
A WooCommerce Customization client wanted to add some text above the “Login” and “Register” boxes on the My Account page. Understandably, users may need a bit of an explanation before they take action. Here’s how you do it! Continue reading WooCommerce: Add Content @ My Account Register / Login 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!
Continue reading WooCommerce Visual Hook Guide: Cart Page
This is a workaround to Limit Shipping and Billing to One State Only. In two of my previous posts (Limit Shipping to One State Only and Limit Billing to One State Only) we’ve seen similar functionalities. In this case, let’s imagine we want to avoid that the user selects unwanted states. Continue reading WooCommerce: Limit State Dropdowns to One State Only
A client needed to disable all shipping methods but Local Pickup for a certain variation ID. This may come useful if you’re looping through the variations on the cart/checkout page (check if variation ID is in the cart for example), so here you go! Continue reading WooCommerce: Disable Shipping Rate if Variation ID @ Cart
A client had several shipping rated on the cart page, automatically generated from FedEx, USPS, UPS and similar plugins via their API. Problem was, he wanted to sort them by price as opposed to grouping them by provider. Continue reading WooCommerce: Sort Shipping Costs from Low to High
I developed a custom payment gateway plugin for a client, who wanted to add a similar method to “cod” (cash on delivery). FYI, he wanted to add a method called “card on delivery”. I simply duplicated the code, added the PHP to a file, made a plugin and gave him the plugin zip file. And everything was working great… until he did a test checkout. Continue reading WooCommerce: Fixing Fatal error Call to undefined function wc_get_order()
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”)
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
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
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
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
You may want to disable payment gateways depending on the user role or user capability. For example, you may want to disable PayPal for “user role: shop_manager” or enable a specific gateway for “user role: customer”. All you need is pasting the following code in your functions.php Continue reading WooCommerce: Disable Payment Gateway for Specific User Role
