WooCommerce: Always Show Variations’ Price @ Single Product

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!

Where to add this snippet?

You can place PHP snippets at the bottom of your child theme functions.php file (before "?>" if you have it). CSS, on the other hand, goes in your child theme style.css file. Make sure you know what you are doing when editing such files - if you need more guidance, please take a look at my free video tutorial "Where to Place WooCommerce Customization?"

Does this snippet (still) work?

Please let me know in the comments if everything worked as expected. I would be happy to revise the snippet if you report otherwise (please provide screenshots). I have tested this code with Storefront theme, the WooCommerce version listed above and a WordPress-friendly hosting on PHP 7+.

  1. Hi:
    I’m using woocommerce 3.8.1 and It’s not working.
    Thanks

    1. Screenshot please?

  2. Is it possible to get this to show on the product archive page? So that it shows the lowest variation with each product on the archive pages?
    Thank you!

    1. Hello Kodi, thanks so much for your comment! Yes, this is definitely possible, but I’m afraid it’s custom work. If you’d like to get a quote, feel free to contact me here. Thanks a lot for your understanding!

  3. Hello,

    It is also possible to create something where you can show the lowest price and highest price but separately?

    So for in my case where someone can rent a product for a specific time:

    Buy product: €500 = highest price
    rent 10 months: €60 = lowest price

    Regards,

    Melle

  5. Hi Rodolfo,
    It does not work either on Storefront

    A greeting

  6. Hi
    I tried this snippet on my website but it does not work.

    using storefront.

    1. Hey there, works for me on Storefront. Please note this snippet: “shows the variation price AFTER SELECTION every time, no matter the conditions”

  7. Hai, I already tried this snippet on my website but it does not work.

    I am using Ocean WP theme for your information.

    Is there is additional code should I add in order it to work.

    By the way, cool stuff ..

    Thank you

    1. Hi Mark! I’m not familiar with Ocean WP, anyway you need to check if they override default WooCommerce functions including this one, and in that case slightly modify the snippet accordingly. Hope this helps
