A correct email address is worth a thousand dollars, some ecommerce expert would say 🙂 So, you don’t want your WooCommerce checkout visitors to mess up with that, do you?
What about adding an “Email Verification” field? In this way, we can make sure they double check their entry – and also show an error message in case they don’t match!
Let’s see how I implemented this for a freelancing client of mine – I’m sure you will be grateful! Continue reading WooCommerce: Add “Confirm Email Address” Field @ Checkout
As WooCommerce snippet requests by #BloomerArmada fans keep coming to my inbox, it’s time to publish a very useful functionality.
Today, we’ll see how to deny purchasing to a given billing email address, if this is a user and happens to have a pending order already! Continue reading WooCommerce: Deny Checkout if User Has Pending Orders
This snippet could come really handy for several reasons. When you’ll need to do advanced customization of the checkout and its fields, hopefully you’ll thank me then 🙂
In today’s snippet, we will add a new checkbox and another new “hidden” field – then, if the checkbox is ticked, the field will show, otherwise it will disappear again. Continue reading WooCommerce: Add a Checkbox to Hide/Show Checkout Field
You can use to exempt someone from Tax/VAT if they enter a Tax/VAT number, or maybe if they specify a given ZIP code.
When I discovered the WooCommerce function set_is_vat_exempt(), together with a little trick to “get” a checkout field programmatically, the snippet was pretty simple to build and test. Here’s the lovely piece of code 🙂 Continue reading WooCommerce: Remove Tax if Checkout Field Value Exists
Following up from the other day’s snippet (deny checkout based on cart weight), you might want to show what is the current Cart Weight on the cart and checkout page. So here you go! Continue reading WooCommerce: Display Weight @ Cart & Checkout
A WooCommerce fan asked me: “How do you deny checkout if the cart weight is above a certain threshold?“. Well, this is straight forward, so there you go! Continue reading WooCommerce: Deny Checkout Based on Cart Weight
When it comes to “editing” stuff, chances are WooCommerce gives us a “filter” we can use without overriding core. The more filters, the more customization we can do. In this case, I wanted to change the “Returning Customer?” message on my own checkout. Continue reading WooCommerce: Edit “Returning Customer?” Message @ 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! Continue reading WooCommerce: Display & Save WP User Field (e.g. user_url) @ Checkout
A Business Bloomer fan asked me a specific question via the blog comments, so I had to make a new snippet of course 🙂
Here’s how you force redirection to the checkout every time a product is added to cart, no matter if you do so from the loop/shop pages or the single product page. Continue reading WooCommerce: Redirect to Checkout on Add to Cart
I invoice clients via WooCommerce, and then send them the “Invoice Email”, which takes them to the “Order Pay” page. Of course, I want to give them the option to pay via “Bank Transfer” (bacs), but I don’t want this to be visible on the default checkout page.
We’ve seen in the past how to disable payment gateways given certain conditions… but how do we “enable” one? Here’s a snippet for that – enjoy! Continue reading WooCommerce: Enable Payment Gateway Only for “Order Pay Checkout”
I wanted to do something different on my own checkout page, and change the default “Have a Coupon?” message. Thankfully, WooCommerce gives us a filter we can use to accomplish anything we like – such as adding a FontAwesome icon or changing the text string completely! Continue reading WooCommerce: Edit “Have a Coupon?” Message @ Cart & Checkout
We’ve already seen how to set the default values for certain dropdowns (country and state default: https://businessbloomer.com/woocommerce-set-default-state-checkout-page/). But what can we do when we want to define the defaults for the other “text” inputs, such as the billing_city? Continue reading WooCommerce: Set Default Billing City (or other fields) @ 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
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
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)
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
We’ve already seen how to disable fields on the checkout page by using a simple snippet.
Given my ultimate goal of trying to do as much as possible without installing heavy-weight plugins, today we’ll take a look at how to move fields around inside the billing & shipping sections. Continue reading WooCommerce: Move / Reorder Checkout Fields (Email, Country, etc.)
Hey Woo Developers. I’ve created a visual HTML hook guide for the WooCommerce Checkout Page.
This visual guide belongs to my “Visual Hook Guide Series“, that I’ve put together so that you can find WooCommerce hooks quickly and easily by seeing their actual locations – and you can also easily copy & paste. Enjoy!
Continue reading WooCommerce Visual Hook Guide: Checkout Page
This challenging task (yet very simple at the end…!) was requested by one of my WooCommerce Support clients. As they trade in USA only, they wanted to force “numbers only” in the ZIP input field, so that letters would not be allowed. Strange WooCommerce doesn’t do this out of the box! Continue reading WooCommerce: Change Input Type @ Checkout Fields
