WooCommerce: Redirect to Custom Thank you Page

How can you redirect customers to a beautifully looking, custom, product-specific thank you page?

WooCommerce: Remove Shipping Labels @ Cart (e.g. “Flat Rate”)

WooCommerce functions add the shipping method label on the Cart totals, on the left hand side of the price. This ruins the price amounts alignment (subtotal, shipping, taxes, total) and many clients have asked me to remove it completely. Also, it could be that sometimes you don’t want to show the name of a shipping rate on the front-end. So, here’s how you do it!

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). The second good news is that you don’t need to know PHP, just copy/paste my snippet!

WooCommerce: How to Shorten Product Titles

A very common WooCommerce shop page issue: sometimes (and especially with affiliate stores), WooCommerce product titles are way too long and go over several lines, messing with the overall vertical alignment.

WooCommerce: Hide Prices on the Shop & Category Pages

Interesting WooCommerce customization here. A client of mine asked me to hide/remove prices from the shop page and category pages as she wanted to drive more customers to the single product pages (i.e. increasing the click-through rate).

As usual, a simple PHP snippet does the trick. I never recommend to use CSS to “hide” prices, as they would still be visible in the code – PHP stops the prices from loading, so they’re invisible to the user.

So, how do we remove the whole “Showing 1–15 of 178 results” element from the Shop, Category, Tag and product loop? Here’s the fix. enjoy!
