WooCommerce: Add “Confirm Email Address” Field @ Checkout

A correct email address is worth a thousand dollars, some ecommerce expert would say 🙂 So, you don’t want your WooCommerce checkout visitors to mess up with that, do you?

What about adding an “Email Verification” field? In this way, we can make sure they double check their entry – and also show an error message in case they don’t match!

Let’s see how I implemented this for a freelancing client of mine – I’m sure you will be grateful!

WooCommerce Checkout Fields Customization Guide

Checkout page plays a huge role in your eCommerce success. It is one of the most important part of your conversion funnel. This is the page that brings revenue.

It doesn’t matter how many people are visiting your website if no one makes any purchase. Complicated checkout process is one of the main reason of high shopping cart abandonment.

You should always look for ways to make your checkout process as simple as possible. If you are using WooCommerce as your eCommerce solution you can easily change the checkout page design, remove or change the existing checkout fields order.

WooCommerce: Checkbox to Hide/Show Custom Checkout Field

This snippet could come really handy for several reasons. When you’ll need to do advanced customization of the checkout and its fields, hopefully you’ll thank me then 🙂

In today’s snippet, we will add a new checkbox and another new “hidden” field – then, if the checkbox is ticked, the field will show, otherwise it will disappear again.

WooCommerce: Tax Exempt User Based on Checkout Field Value

There is a nice WooCommerce function you can use to exempt someone from Tax/VAT calculations. You could, for example, enable exemption once they enter a Tax/VAT number, or maybe if they specify a given ZIP code.

Such function is called set_is_vat_exempt(), and together with a little trick to “get” a checkout field on the go, the snippet is pretty simple to build and test. Enjoy!

WooCommerce: Display Total Weight @ Cart & Checkout

Following up from the other day’s snippet (deny checkout based on cart weight), you might want to show what is the current Total Weight on the cart and checkout page in case this is useful to your customers.

Of course, in order for this snippet to work, all your products must have a weight, otherwise the total will always be equal to 0. So here you go – enjoy!

WooCommerce: Deny Checkout Based on Cart Weight

A WooCommerce fan asked me: “How do you deny checkout if the cart weight is above a certain threshold?“.

Well, this is straight forward thanks to a WooCommerce core function called “cart_contents_weight” which allows you to get the total weight of your cart, and then the “wc_add_notice” function which shows a notification error.

Enjoy!

WooCommerce: Display & Save WP User Field (e.g. user_url) @ Checkout

I’m curious to know how many had the same problem. At WooCommerce checkout, some user fields such as billing_name, shipping_address_1, etc. are automatically saved into the “WordPress User Profile” upon processing.

But what if we also wanted to display and save another existing user field, such as “user_twitter”, or “user_url”, which you can find in the WP User Profile by default? Well, this is very easy: first, we add a custom checkout field; then, we make sure that when the checkout is processed we save that field correctly! Continue reading WooCommerce: Display & Save WP User Field (e.g. user_url) @ Checkout

WooCommerce: Enable Payment Gateway Only for “Order Pay Checkout”

I invoice clients via WooCommerce, and then send them the “Invoice Email”, which takes them to the “Order Pay” page. Of course, I want to give them the option to pay via “Bank Transfer” (bacs), but I don’t want this to be visible on the default checkout page.

We’ve seen in the past how to disable payment gateways given certain conditions… but how do we “enable” one? Here’s a snippet for that – enjoy!

WooCommerce: Set Default Billing City (or other fields) @ Checkout

We’ve already seen how to set the default values for certain dropdowns (country and state default: https://businessbloomer.com/woocommerce-set-default-state-checkout-page/). But what can we do when we want to define the defaults for the other “text” inputs, such as the billing_city? Continue reading WooCommerce: Set Default Billing City (or other fields) @ Checkout

WooCommerce: How to Remove “What is PayPal?” @ Checkout

One of my premium course students had an apparently simple requirement. Her client didn’t want to show the “What is PayPal?” text (and link) on the checkout page. In fact, why sending users away from the checkout? And who doesn’t know what PayPal is nowadays? Well, let’s see how this is done via a simple “filter” – but this time I’d like to show you a step-by-step tutorial! Let me know what you think about this in the comments 🙂 Continue reading WooCommerce: How to Remove “What is PayPal?” @ Checkout

WooCommerce: Add House Number Field @ Checkout

A North European client told me they’re really strict about billing and shipping addresses over there. Couriers usually require a separate “House Number” in order to dispatch packages within those countries.

This must be therefore placed on the checkout, BESIDE the “Address_1” field and made required. Also, it’s a good idea to make this show in the Admin Order, thank you page and notification Emails.

WooCommerce: How to Add a Custom Checkout Field

Let’s imagine you want to add a custom checkout field (and not an additional billing or shipping field) on the WooCommerce Checkout page. For example, it might be a customer licence number – this has got nothing to do with billing and nothing to do with shipping.

Ideally, this custom field could show above the Checkout page order notes – right after the shipping form. It will feature a label, an input field, and will be required.

So, here’s how you do it – hope it helps you understand that anything is possible with WooCommerce!

WooCommerce: Display Total Discount / Savings @ Cart & Checkout

If you love Ecommerce as much as I do, and are passionate about Sales Conversion Rate and reducing Shopping Cart Abandonment, today’s snippet will come in handy.

Besides, this is officially the first guest blog on Business Bloomer (have ideas? Send me your proposal here)… so let me officially introduce you to today’s author: Jamie Gill, a WordPress & WooCommerce enthusiast from Bradford, UK.

Jamie managed to code a handy snippet to display inside Cart and Checkout totals the total amount of money a customer saved (sale prices plus coupon discounts). Over the years this snippet went through several revisions, but it’s still working smoothly – enjoy!

WooCommerce: Disable Postcode/ZIP Validation @ Checkout

An annoying thing for sellers based in Ireland (for example), is that we still don’t use post codes (they recently introduced them, but nobody’s using them). So, in today’s task, I want to show you how to disable the “REQUIRED” feature of the postcode on the checkout page.

We already saw how to completely remove the PostCode/ZIP field… but this time we wish to leave it on the checkout, and just avoid a validation error if we don’t enter anything. Continue reading WooCommerce: Disable Postcode/ZIP Validation @ Checkout

WooCommerce: Add Privacy Policy Checkbox @ Checkout

Here’s a snippet regarding the checkout page. If you’ve been affected by GDPR, you will know you now need users to give you Privacy Policy consent. Or, you might need customer to acknowledge special shipping requirements for example.

So, how do we display an additional tick box on the Checkout page (together with the existing T&C checkbox)?
