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 or install a mini-plugin. Enjoy!

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.

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. At the same time, variable products with a single price (i.e. all variations have the same price) will keep their original format, so won’t display the “From: ” prefix.

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

WooCommerce: Hide Sale! Badge If Product Is Out Of Stock

If a product cannot be purchased because it is out of stock, why would you want to tell people that it’s on sale – only because it has a sale price?

That would probably clutter your shop and maybe get the customer to click on the wrong item just because it was standing out, only to find out they can’t purchase it!

So, let’s fix this little “design bug” in WooCommerce – let’s make sure the Sale! badge gets hidden in case the product is out of stock. Enjoy!

WooCommerce: Set Different Currency For Manual Orders

Business Bloomer website sells in USD only for the time being, as that seems to be the standard for WordPress plugin / products stores.

However, I prefer to invoice clients in EUR (I also switch PayPal and Stripe keys on the go). Which means, I needed to find a way to “set” a different currency whenever I create a manual order (which, by default, is in USD). So, here’s the fix!

Tax display by customer role?

In a WooCommerce store, I have two roles: Customer and Professional. In the WooCommerce options, I have selected to display prices in the cart and checkout with taxes included.

Now, I need for the Professional role to have the opposite setting, that in the cart and checkout the prices are displayed without taxes included.

Is there a way to modify that option depending on the role? If it is possible to do so, is there a filter or a clue from which I can start researching?

WooCommerce: Preparing Your Site for Black Friday / Cyber Monday

Black Friday and Cyber Monday (BFCM) are just around the corner. Is your WooCommerce site prepared? I hope so!

While time is running out, there are a number of things you can do to get ready. In this post, we’ll cover eight of the most important ones.

The potential of a Black Friday / Cyber Monday deal shouldn’t be underestimated. Indeed, many eCommerce sites report that a significant percentage of their annual revenue comes from sales during this brief period of time. 

Additionally, it’s important to remember that nearly all businesses run a BFCM sale, which means that anyone who doesn’t have an offer is missing out.

Before we jump into the eight important things you can do, a final note: failing to prepare may cost you a serious amount of missed revenue. Amazon, for example, stands to lose $13.22 million per hour of downtime! While that’s an extreme example, it is a reminder that downtime should be avoided as much as possible during once-a-year sales events.

WooCommerce: “Bulk Edit” > Remove Categories @ Admin Products List

Go to WordPress Dashboard > Products, select more than one product, and then go to the Bulk Actions dropdown and choose “Edit“.

You’re now presented with a simple yet effective bulk edit window, where you can do basic product fields editing such as changing the price in bulk, assign the same tag in bulk, set a sale price percentage in bulk, and so on. You can even assign one or more categories to the selected products.

But wait – it seems you cannot remove product categories from all selected products, which is a bummer! Well, I’m not sure if this is a WooCommerce choice, but honestly it’s such a basic thing that I’m surprised there is no bulk edit option for that.

So, let’s fix this. Let’s add a custom select dropdown with a list of product categories – whenever a category is selected, this will be removed from all checked products. Enjoy!

“Inconsistent tax settings” error

Entering prices exclusive of tax while displaying the shop price inclusive of price brings on this notification “Inconsistent tax settings”. Is this really a problem if a shop mostly sells in their own country? Okay, there could be some very small rounding problems, i guess. But i guess it’s mostly safe to enter prices exclusive tax to avoid tax changes. How do you handle this?

WooCommerce: Get Order Tax Percentage

You’d think WooCommerce had an easy way to get the order tax rate percentage, the same way as you can get almost everything inside the “order object” with a single line of PHP. Well, that’s not the case unfortunately.

The reason is that probably each order can have multiple tax rates, and that tax is not only applied to product prices, but also optionally to shipping, fees and more.

So, how do we get the list of tax rates in a WooCommerce order? Here’s a quick snippet that you can use – enjoy!

Navigating the landscape of WooCommerce can be made significantly easier with a dropshipping agent, especially when sourcing products from China.
