WooCommerce: Add “Confirm Email Address” Field @ Checkout

A correct email address is worth a thousand dollars, some ecommerce expert would say πŸ™‚ 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

WooCommerce: Add a Checkbox to Hide/Show Checkout Field

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 πŸ™‚

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

WooCommerce: Remove Tax if Checkout Field Value Exists

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 πŸ™‚ Continue reading WooCommerce: Remove Tax if Checkout Field Value Exists

WooCommerce: Display & Save WP User Field (e.g. user_url) @ 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

WooCommerce: Enable Payment Gateway Only for “Order Pay Checkout”

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!

WooCommerce: How to Remove “What is PayPal?” @ 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?Β Well, let’s see how this isΒ 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 πŸ™‚ Continue reading WooCommerce: How to Remove “What is PayPal?” @ Checkout

WooCommerce: Add House Number Field @ Checkout

A Dutch fan told me in Holland they’re really strict about addresses πŸ™‚ 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

WooCommerce: How to Add a Custom Checkout Field (PHP)

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)

WooCommerce: Disable Postcode/ZIP Validation @ Checkout

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

WooCommerce: Add Privacy Policy Checkbox @ Checkout

Here’s a snippet regarding the checkout page. If you’ve been affected by GDPR, you will know you now need users to give you Privacy Policy consent. Or, you might need customer to acknowledge special shipping requirements for example.

So, how do we display an additional tick box on the Checkout page (together with the existing T&C checkbox)?
