WooCommerce: Always Display Single Variation Price

When a variable product has the same price for all variations, a unique price is shown to website users i.e. the one at the top of the page. However, this behaves differently when each variation has its own unique price – in this case the single variation price shows after a variation is selected.

Now, this can be good or this can be bad – it depends. So in this snippet we’ll see a quick fix to make this behavior consistent i.e. showing the variation price after selection every time, no matter the conditions.

Thankfully, it’s literally one line of PHP. Enjoy! Continue reading WooCommerce: Always Display Single Variation Price

WooCommerce: How to Enable Catalog Mode?

One of the most common WooCommerce questions is: can I use WooCommerce to build a catalog of products (without add to cart, price… basically a product gallery)? Using WooCommerce for this case scenario is indeed very helpful – you can make the most of all the inbuilt features such as single product gallery and carousel, image zoom, product description tabs, attributes, categories, tags and related products. Basically a much better version than a standard image gallery.

Another question might be: can I disable the WooCommerce add to cart / cart / checkout functionality until the time I am able to sell my products? This is another common scenario that many WooCommerce store owners require.

Besides, certain products in your WooCommerce website might be for sale and others might not. In this case, you’d want to disable the add to cart functionality from specific categories or products.

Finally, you might want to restrict the cart / checkout functions to logged in, registered users only. This is if you run a wholesale business for example, and wish to hide your prices to the public.

Either way, when the “Add to Cart” button gets hidden, a contact form might be required – this is what I call a “Product Inquiry” form.

Good news is there are snippets and plugins that can make your life easier, your admin time more efficient and your product management simpler. And today we’re taking a look at the best options. Continue reading WooCommerce: How to Enable Catalog Mode?

WooCommerce: Display Prices as “Was $$$ – Now $$$ – Save $$$”

Many retailers use this price tag strategy quite successfully. And displaying the amount of savings can increase your ecommerce store conversion rate as well ๐Ÿ™‚

So, turning simple product default pricing from “$30 $20″ to “Was $30 – Now $20 – Save $10” is quite easy. With a little CSS you can also style the display and customize it according to your brand guidelines! Continue reading WooCommerce: Display Prices as “Was $$$ – Now $$$ – Save $$$”

WooCommerce: Display “FREE” Instead of $0.00 or Empty Price

In older versions of WooCommerce free prices used to display as “FREE!” and products with empty prices were not publishable. Now they’ve changed this around, but I still believe “FREE” looks much better than “$0.00”. It’s much more enticing, isn’t it?

Well, here’s how you restore the old functionality – as usual it’s as simple as using a PHP filter provided by WooCommerce and overriding the default behavior. Continue reading WooCommerce: Display “FREE” Instead of $0.00 or Empty Price

WooCommerce: Display Cart Item Subtotal With Coupon Discount

This is a nice follow up from last week’s snippet “WooCommerce: Slashed Cart Subtotal if Coupon @ Cart“, where I showed how to display original/discounted cart total on the same totals table row.

WooCommerce: Easily Get Product Info (ID, SKU, $) from $product Object

I’ve been wanting to publish this guide for a long while. As a freelancer, every day I repeat many operations that make me waste time – and one of them is indeed “How to get ____ if I have the $product variable/object?”.

For example, “How can I get the product SKU”? Or “How can I get the product short description”? Or maybe the product stock level, shipping class, tax class, price, regular price, sale price, and so on… hopefully this article will save you time ๐Ÿ™‚ Continue reading WooCommerce: Easily Get Product Info (ID, SKU, $) from $product Object

WooCommerce: Force Cart to Specific Amount (Deposit)

Here’s a very simple snippet that achieves a very complex task – what if you wanted to force your Cart to charge a deposit or a fixed fee, no matter the product price?

Well, thankfully WooCommerce is pretty flexible and a lot of workarounds can be found. In this case, forcing the checkout to a fixed amount (e.g. $100) is as simple as applying a negative “cart fee” to make the total become $100.

Sounds like Japanese? Great – here’s why you’re on Business Bloomer. Copy the snippet, apply it to your test WooCommerce site and see the magic happen – without knowing anything about coding! Continue reading WooCommerce: Force Cart to Specific Amount (Deposit)

WooCommerce: See What’s Inside the Cart Array (print_r)

So many times I needed to “play” with Cart contents in order to modify the default behaviour (such as removing a columns, hide the sale price to prices, hide an item, etc.).

There is a great PHP function that always helps – it’s called print_r and you can use this to “see” what’s inside the cart array, so that you can return certain information in a message for example.

A bit advanced, but as you grow your WooCommerce coding skills, you will use this a lot ๐Ÿ™‚ Continue reading WooCommerce: See What’s Inside the Cart Array (print_r)

WooCommerce: Add RRP / MSRP to Products (Without a Plugin)

The manufacturer’s suggested retail price (MSRP), or the recommended retail price (RRP), it’s the price at which the manufacturer recommends that the retailer sell the product. You might have seen this in an ad, on a magazine, on a price tag: “RRP: $50. Our price: $39!”.

WooCommerce entrepreneurs can take advantage of this “marketing trick” too. The only problem is: how do we show this “extra field” on the single product page AND in the product edit page, so that the website owner can add this easily? Continue reading WooCommerce: Add RRP / MSRP to Products (Without a Plugin)

So, what about 10 PHP lines in exchange for an increase in sales? Great! Here’s the snippet ๐Ÿ™‚ Continue reading WooCommerce: Display Regular & Sale Price @ Cart Table

WooCommerce: Add Prefix / Suffix to Product Prices

Sometimes you may want to add a prefix or a suffix to your prices. It could be something like “From…”, “Only…”, “…tax free” and so on. The first good news is this is very easy to do with a WooCommerce filter (remember, filters change the value of an existing variable, while actions add content).
