WooCommerce: Change “Return to Shop” URL

This simple snippet will make sure you can send users back to a custom page as opposed to the shop page when the Cart is empty. In this particular project, client had no shop page so we wanted to send users back to the homepage instead.

As usual, it’s a couple of lines of PHP, without the need to override templates or even worse to edit core WooCommerce. Enjoy!

WooCommerce and Divi: how to override !important CSS

I am a big fan of Elegant Themes, but a lot of CSS styles (mainly in Divi) contain “!important” in order to override WooCommerce styles when using the two in a combo. Now, the big problem is that we can’t override !important with another !important. Divi will win. But no matter whether Divi has been developed in a good or not so good way, there is something we can do. (NOTE: using !important is a horrible thing in CSS. Use at your own risk) Continue reading WooCommerce and Divi: how to override !important CSS

WooCommerce: Hide Prices on the Shop & Category Pages

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

WooCommerce: Hide Shipping Rates if Free Shipping Available

If Free Shipping is available, you possibly don’t want to show the other paid shipping options. WooCommerce shows by default all shipping rates that match a given shipping zone, so it’s not possible to achieve this from the settings alone.

You need PHP for that. In this example, we will disable all shipping methods but “Free Shipping” so that free shipping remains the only possible choice. And here’s the code to add to your functions.php 🙂

WooCommerce: Disable Payment Gateway for a Specific Country

You might want to disable PayPal for non-local customers or enable a specific gateway for only one country… Either way, this is a very common requirement for all of those who trade internationally.

Here’s a simple snippet you can further customize to achieve your objective. Simply pick the payment gateway “slug” you want to disable/enable (“paypal”, “authorize”, “stripe”, etc.) and the country code (US, ES, IE, etc.) and then apply your conditional rules in the plugin below.
