WooCommerce: Hide Price & Add to Cart for Logged Out Users

You may want to force users to login in order to see prices and add products to cart. That means you must hide add to cart buttons and prices on the Shop and Single Product pages when a user is logged out.

All you need is pasting the following code in your functions.php (please note: your theme may have overwritten some default WooCommerce functions, hence the code below may not work. Contact me if you need custom code). Enjoy!

WooCommerce: Disable Variable Product Price Range $$$-$$$

You may want to disable the WooCommerce variable product price range which usually looks like $100-$999 when variations have different prices (min $100 and max $999 in this case).

With this snippet you will be able to hide the highest price, and add a “From: ” prefix in front of the minimum price – variable products with a single price (i.e. all variations have the same price) will keep their original format.

Simply paste the following code in your child theme’s functions.php and enjoy!

WooCommerce: Display Product Grid @ Order Emails e.g. Related Products

Bad news first – we’ve seen how to add content to any WooCommerce order email, however I did not specify that if you use the [products] shortcode that’s not going to work unfortunately. The reason behind this, in plain English, is that… it just doesn’t work, and it outputs a weird list of “Sale!” list items (see screenshot below)!

So, I want to fix this, and find a WooCommerce email-compatible way to show a grid of products based on a list of product IDs (for example, the list of related products based on the ordered items), and make sure I can actually see product images, titles, prices and a link. Enjoy!

WooCommerce: Item Custom Field @ Edit Order Page

Alright, this title may not really help you understand what I mean, so let’s put it in another way. When, as an administrator, you edit an order and are in the Order Items table, you have the chance to edit the item quantity, subtotal and discounted price (see screenshot below).

Now, what if you also want to have the freedom to display and edit another custom field, so that it is saved inside the order once you hit the “Save” button?

This could be useful for custom setups – for example let’s imagine the admin has the necessity to also define the “shipped quantity”, so that they know exactly if a specific order has been entirely fulfilled or requires a second shipment to get completed.

Either way, see the screenshot below, play with the snippet, and see how it goes. Enjoy!

WooCommerce: 4 Ways to Grow Your Sales With Omni-Channel Marketing

The goal of marketing automation is to help you save on effort. However, sometimes it comes at the price of poorly targeted campaigns and half-baked marketing content, which can be outright damaging to your business.

The other problem with most of WooCommerce marketing automation tools is that they have a one-off approach to marketing that aims to get as much as possible from one user interaction – during checkout, for example – without providing for loyalty or retention. This goes against the golden rule of marketing, where your biggest asset is your leads and customers and your biggest mission is to retain them.

The solution is to use a omni-channel marketing approach, where a central tool collects and enriches user behavior and history in a unified profile and then uses that profile to deliver relevant campaigns across all user touchpoints. 

This ensures more harmonized marketing, a seamless experience for your users and eventually more trust and engagement with your brand. These are all the ingredients you need to increase the loyalty lifetime value of your users and customers.

WooCommerce: Turn Checkout Into a Quote System

There are certainly ways and plugins to turn WooCommerce into a quote engine, but today I want to share a super simple workaround that could be helpful to many.

In a nutshell, we’ll use the same WooCommerce cart/checkout flow, rename a few strings and buttons, enable an offline payment gateway (so there is no actual payment), let the admin revise the order and send back the final invoice, and finally get the customer to pay for their order.

Enjoy!

WooCommerce: Why Variable Products Are Too Limited (and How Add-Ons Can Help)

WooCommerce is rich with customization options for different kinds of eCommerce businesses. However, it’s quite limited when it comes to certain shopping solutions your online business may need – such as displaying product variations.

For instance, a customer may need to choose RAM size, storage size, and device color before buying a mobile phone. In this case, using the default WooCommerce variations will require you to create a variable product with hundreds if not thousands of attribute combinations.

This can be exhausting, and despite all that work, the result is often a slow and difficult to manage product backend due to a huge number of variations . Besides, your customers would have a hard time finding the exact variation when the only option they have are dropdowns with dozens of options.

The best way to give your customers a seamless user experience is to allow them to customize their products on the same page without using variations. Now, you can’t do that with WooCommerce alone. This is where WooCommerce product add-ons plugins come in.

In this article, we’ll show you the easiest way to create and sell variable WooCommerce products using WooCommerce Product Options. But before that, let’s talk about why you need additional product options in your store.

WooCommerce: Set Product Discount Percentage @ Product Admin

Let’s say you want to apply a 10% discount on a WooCommerce product. Its original price is $79.56. You go to the “Edit Product” page, go to the “Sale Price” input field, and enter ( $79.56 – 10% ) = $71.63. This is great as you can set the sale price, but this forces you to do some math and waste time.

What if there were a custom select dropdown, where you could directly define a fixed discount e.g. 10% or 25%, without having to calculate the final price?

Well, in today’s tutorial, we’ll see how we can display a dropdown in the Product Edit page, and at the same time how to edit the frontend price once a discount value is selected, so that you don’t need to worry about that manual sale price calculation. Enjoy!

WooCommerce: Purchasing Power Parity (PPP) Discounts

Since… today, Business Bloomer online courses are affordable for everyone.

It’s unfortunate that digital products (such as our WooCommerce online courses) are priced in USD dollars but there is no adjustment for less privileged countries.

This is a pity because content should be accessible to ALL WooCommerce developers around the world, no matter their income level. I receive dozens of emails per month from amazing people who can’t really afford a USD 397 course because they make that amount of money in 4 months if they’re lucky.

So, let’s change this. Here comes Purchasing Power Parity (PPP) to the rescue.

PPP is a special metric that tells us the real “purchasing power” of a given country. Take a basket of identical goods, pay in your local currency in your own country; purchase the same items in USD in the United States. Compare that difference to the actual exchange rate. Now you really have an idea of how much a country can afford to pay for that basket of goods.

Let’s talk in plain English. Are you from India? You may get up to 75% off our online courses. Are you from South Africa? Maybe a 59% discount! Are you from Argentina? 61% off on average. Are you from Norway? No discount, sorry (it seems you do better than the US). And so on…

In this post, I’ll go through a quick PPP math example to give you some context, and then I’ll tell you how I implemented PPP discounts in this same WooCommerce website.

Want to help me test the PPP discount functionality which is currently in beta? Add a course to cart e.g. CustomizeWoo PRO, select your billing country at checkout, and leave a comment below with the discount you got, if any.

Enjoy!

WooCommerce: How to Send Newsletters to Your Customers

Sending emails (newsletters, broadcasts or similar) to customers is an integral part of a WooCommerce marketing strategy. Email marketing is an outstanding tool that allows you to connect with your customers, keep them informed about your products, services, or discounts, get them to return to your site, and drive new sales. 

Unlike other popular channels, like social media – emails provide a personal touch and let you reach your target consumers directly in their inboxes. Statistics suggest that while 87% of B2B marketers leverage email as a distribution channel – 79% of B2C marketers use emails to promote their new blog posts and articles. 

And one such critical email marketing solution is email newsletters. They are extremely beneficial to stay in touch and build trustworthy relationships with existing and potential customers. 

So, if you’re looking for solutions to send automated newsletters to your WooCommerce customers – you’re at the right place. But first, let’s learn more about the benefits of actually sending newsletters.

WooCommerce: File Upload Plugins For Order Personalization

One of the biggest mistakes you can make as a WooCommerce store owner is offering limited product customization abilities. Product personalization is a critical component of online shopping that helps provide a better customer experience and results in a high retention rate.

75% of customers appreciate businesses that offer personalized offerings, and a Deloitte consumer review suggests that 1 in every 5 customers are willing to pay 20% more for a custom-designed and personalized product. 

A great way to do this is by offering an image upload solution for products for your customers to improve customer satisfaction and generate more revenue for your store. 

This article shows the top solutions that make uploading images for products for customers a breeze and enhance their customization abilities. But before we get into them, let’s look at more benefits of offering this capability in your store and how it affects your business bottom line.

WooCommerce: How To Enable Stripe Payments

Providing payment options on your WooCommerce store that your customers trust and meet their needs is the key to ensuring a satisfied customer journey and eliminating cart abandonments. 

According to the Baymard Institute’s research, the average cart abandonment rate amongst buyers is 69.8%, and 6 out of 10 times, it’s because of issues related to payments. 

While some shoppers abandon carts because of long checkout processes and the lack of simple payment options, others don’t find the payment site legitimate enough to provide their credit card information. Thus, the payment method plays a huge role in customers’ buying decisions. 

Stripe is a great option. It’s simple-to-use, flexible, and one of the most popular payment solutions for WooCommerce. It makes accepting and processing credit card payments a breeze and leaves your customers with a fast checkout process. 

This article takes you through some of the best free and premium WooCommerce Stripe plugins for your store. But first, let’s learn more about the advantages of using Stripe as a payment option for WooCommerce.
