This snippet will help you synchronize all your cart items’ quantities with a given product ID quantity. When you add a second product to cart, therefore, it will get the same quantity of your product ID. Also, if you update the quantity of product ID, the other cart item quantities will automatically update accordingly.
Applications are quite niche, but it’s great to learn how to programmatically set the quantity of a cart item. As usual, each snippet of this website has got something that sooner or later you may need to use. Enjoy!
We already studied how to set min/max WooCommerce add to cart quantity programmatically. That was an easy one. This time, I want to expand on the topic, and define a “minimum order amount on a per-product basis”.
Which, translated in plain English, would be something along the lines of “set the minimum purchase amount for product XYZ to $50”. And once we do that, I expect that the add to cart quantity does non start from 1 – instead it defaults to “$50 divided by product price”. If product price is $10, I would want to set the minimum add to cart quantity to “5” on the single product and cart pages.
Because “split” might not be the correct term, let me explain this better.
Let’s imagine your WooCommerce cart table is sorted by A>Z (with my WooCommerce cart sorting snippet for example). If your business model and/or UX requires it, then you might need to “add a cart table row” to communicate the fact those items belong to that letter:
Item 1 Title: “AAA”
Item 2 Title: “ACC”
Item 3 Title: “BDD”
Item 4 Title: “BEE”
Once again, this might sound incomprehensible so you’d better look at the screenshot below. Enjoy!
By default, the WooCommerce Checkout page redirects you back to the (empty) Cart page in case there are no products in the Cart.
Now, there are times when you still need users to see the Checkout page and avoid this redirect. And thankfully, WooCommerce provides us with two filters that we can use to immediately disable this default behavior. Enjoy!
This becomes a little complex – while adding an item to cart requires just its product ID, removing it from the cart forces you to know the “cart item key”. Japanese, I know, but just copy the snippet and you’re done!
You’re looking to assign different unit prices based on the quantity added to Cart, for example from 1-100 price is $5, from 101-1000 price is $4.90 and from 1001 units ordered price becomes $4.75.
There are many “Dynamic Pricing” plugins out there (and the number #2 on this article would suit complex pricing rules and dynamic discounts), but this time I want to teach you a simple code to DIY WooCommerce quantity-based pricing.
As usual, comments and shares are much appreciated. Enjoy!
I had the pleasure to speak at WordCamp Prague 2019. I spoke about “10 PHP Snippets to Increase WooCommerce Sales” and managed to show some simple coding to the audience. Trust me – increasing your WooCommerce sales can also be done with a free, short, easy PHP snippet.
So, given that I want to share all the snippets I talked about, this is a quick recap. Copy them, test them (a must!) and then use them. And let me know if your conversion rate and/or AOV (average order value) increased!
Coupons: the good, the bad and the ugly. WooCommerce coupon codes are great to convert more sales – but sometimes they get users to pause / stop placing the order until they find a coupon code online (you did it too, I know).
One good workaround that the internet giants such as Amazon and eBay have implemented is to hide the coupon form until an email is entered, or alternatively to move the coupon code to the bottom of the Cart page. This is a very smart move, and gets the user to concentrate on the Cart / Checkout details before entering or searching for a coupon.
We’ve already seen how to remove the product permalink from the “order table” (the one you see on the Thank you page, My account pages and emails). Thsi time, we’re looking at doing the same thing on the Cart page, which uses different “hooks” than the order pages and therefore requires its own snippet.
This is your ultimate guide – complete with shortcodes, snippets and workarounds – to completely skip the Cart page and have both cart table and checkout form on the same page.
But first… why’d you want to do this? Well, if you sell high ticket products (i.e. on average, you sell approximately one product per order), if you want to save an additional step (two steps convert better than three: “Add to Cart” > “Cart Page” > “Checkout Page” – and this is not rocket science), if your custom workflow and ecommerce objectives require you to manage Cart and Checkout all together, well, this tutorial is for you.
There is a mix of shortcodes, settings and PHP snippets you can use to make this work out of the box. And trust me, this is easier than you think.
While many developers decide to turn the checkout process into a “Multi-Step Checkout” (ehm, not sure why – the more steps the more likely it is to have a cart abandonment), in here we’ll see the exact opposite.
When you add a hidden product to Cart, either manually or programmatically, this will be displayed in the Cart, Checkout and Order details pages (I’m not sure why a hidden product behaves like that… but thankfully you can hide hidden products from the Cart/Checkout/Order page with this snippet).
Problem is, even if you hide hidden products from the Cart page, the “Mini-Cart” product counter icon or text (it depends on your theme) will still count them as products (see the screenshot below). So the question is: in conjunction with the snippet aforementioned, how do I exclude hidden products from being counted in the “menu cart” (also called Mini-Cart Widget)? Continue reading WooCommerce: Exclude Hidden Products from Mini-Cart Counter
As a result, I definitely didn’t need the whole “Mini-Cart Widget Dropdown Content” either. To test, try to “hover” onto the shopping cart icon on the top right, and you’ll notice there is no cart dropdown 🙂
If you wish to test, go to my free video tutorial page called “How to Customize the WooCommerce Single Product Page“. As soon as the page loads a product is magically added to cart, so that the WooCommerce Checkout on that same page is populated with the hidden item. If you go to my Cart page right after visiting that landing page, you can verify there is a product in there.
The “Shipping Calculator” can be enabled via the WooCommerce settings in order to give the user a way to calculate their shipping fees before getting to the Checkout Page. Usually they fill out the country, state, city and postcode form fields and click on “Update Totals” in order to calculate the shipping.
However, what if you only calculate shipping based on country? Or what if you only charge by zip code / postcode? In this case, you will need to hide the input fields you don’t need, and make UX better.
When talking about UX, or for very specific WooCommerce shops, you might need to “communicate” to the user a product is already in the Cart before re-adding it or increasing its quantity from the Shop/Category/Loop and Single Product pages.
The “Add to Cart” button label comes with a filter (actually 2 filters, one for the Single Product page and another for the other pages such as Shop), so all we need to do is targeting those two, “filter” the label text in case the product is already in the Cart, and return that back to WooCommerce. If this looks like Japanese to you don’t worry – simply copy/paste the snippet below! Continue reading WooCommerce: Rename “Add to Cart” Button if Product Already @ Cart
Your WooCommerce shopping cart might look messy when it contains many products. Your specific business, besides, might require you buy “Part 1” first and “Part 2” after.
A way to tidy up the WooCommerce shopping basket is – for example – to sort products based on their title, from A to Z. As usual, this can be done with a few lines of PHP, even if you have no clue about coding… feel free to copy, paste, and enjoy the snippet 🙂
I’m pretty sure that during one of those Black Friday sales all you wanted to do was to apply a bulk discount to your WooCommerce products without having to generate a coupon code.
Let’s not forget that despite coupons are trackable and you can assess your marketing efforts with their usage statistics, requiring the user to take one additional step at checkout (entering the correct coupon code) reduces your sales conversion rate (the same applies with useless checkout fields by the way – less work to do, higher conversion rate).
In today’s post, we’ll see what are the 3 options I recommend in order to apply bulk store discounts. It pretty much depends on your product types (simple vs variable for example) and whether you want to do this via the settings or with a little bit of PHP.
