WooCommerce: Rename The “Add to cart” Button Label

The “Add to Cart” button label cannot be changed from the WooCommerce settings unfortunately. Thankfully, the simple code below will allow you to change it to whatever you wish e.g. “Add to Basket” or “Add to Order”.

We saw in the past how to rename the “Add to Cart” label conditionally or how to add an icon to it, but this time I’d like to change the whole wording.

By customizing the “Add to Cart” button label, you can influence user behavior and potentially increase sales in your WooCommerce store.

The new label should clearly communicate the action the user takes when clicking the button, and possibly use strong verbs and persuasive language to encourage users to add products to their cart. Besides, you have the chance to maintain consistency with your overall brand voice and tone.

So, let’s see how it’s done. Enjoy!

WooCommerce: Hide “View Cart” Button Upon Ajax Add to Cart

WooCommerce has a built-in AJAX functionality for adding products to the cart on archive pages (Shop page, product category pages, tag pages, etc.). Once you add a product, WooCommerce displays a “View Cart” button beside the “Add to Cart” one.

The “View Cart” button is a way to improve user experience, so that customers can quickly access their cart after adding a product. However, I’ve noticed on some client websites that this can mess up the product grid layout, confuse users and – sometimes – hurt the overall UX instead of improving it!

With the snippet below you’ll learn how to remove this button – surely you’re familiar with the CSS display:none method, so we will see a different approach here, so that the button doesn’t even load. Enjoy!

WooCommerce: Add to Cart Form @ Shop Page

We’ve already covered a similar customization on Business Bloomer: how to display Ajax quantity selectors on the WooCommerce Shop page. The problem there was that that only works for simple products, and only when Ajax add to cart is activated via the WooCommerce settings.

Today I’d like to experiment a little, and see what happens when we include the “add to cart template” (i.e. the one you see on the WooCommerce Single Product page) under each product on the WooCommerce Shop page.

This *should* work with all product types – especially variable products – because you will see the attribute dropdown selectors in such a case, as if you were on the single product page.

I haven’t tested this with grouped, bundle, and special product types, so feel free to share your findings in the comments below. Enjoy!

WooCommerce: Pre-defined Add to Cart Quantity Selectors

I seriously spent more than usual trying to write a decent title. Still, I’m not 100% sure I’ve explained it well – so here’s some more context.

The WooCommerce Single Product Page add to cart form features a quantity input and an add to cart button. Super simple. Customers can define a quantity and add the current product to the cart.

Now, let’s imagine you want to change this experience based on your business requirements, and instead of the quantity input and add to cart button you want to show 3 buttons: “Add 1x to the cart“, “Add 2x to the cart“, “Add 3x to the cart.

And if you can match this with a bulk quantity discount functionality, you can even change the messaging to e.g. “Add 1x to the cart“, “Add 2x to the cart and save $X“, “Add 3x to the cart and save $Y“…

So, let’s see how to hide the default add to cart form, and instead show buttons that allow the customer to add to cart a pre-defined product quantity (for simple products). As per this screenshot:

WooCommerce: Duplicate Add to Cart Button @ Single Product Page

In case you have very long single product pages, it may be helpful to show the Add to Cart form at the bottom of the page or even inside the description tab.

Thankfully this is pretty easy and only requires one line of code. The only thing that you may want to change is the hook name, which defines the position of the button, and the priority, which defines the relative position of the element in case there are other ones “hooked” onto the same hook.

In this example, we will place the button at the very bottom of the page, below tabs, upsells and related products. Enjoy!

WooCommerce: Add to Cart Quantity Suffix

On a default WooCommerce install, we add X products to cart by defining the add to cart quantity on the single product page.

But what if your shop sells spices? It’s likely that those quantities are actually pounds / kilograms / or whatever weight unit you require. And what if your WooCommerce business is entirely focused around Italian extra virgin olive oil (asking for a friend!), that you’d sell per liter?

In such custom cases, it’s nice to specify the unit beside the add to cart quantity, so that customers know how much and what they are buying. So, let’s see how to add an add to cart quantity suffix beside the quantity input field on the single product page. Enjoy!

WooCommerce: Ajax Add to Cart Quantity @ Shop

As you know, you can tick the “Enable AJAX add to cart buttons on archives” checkbox in the WooCommerce settings in order to add products to cart from the Shop / Category / Tag / loop pages without refreshing the page.

This is great for certain businesses, especially those who sell in bulk and where customers know exactly what they need to buy without the need of checking the single product page.

The bad news is that the Ajax Add to Cart button only allows you to add 1 item to the cart i.e. there is no quantity input field. The other bad news is that the Ajax Add to Cart button only works for simple products, while for variable ones it will turn into a “Select options” link without the possibility of adding a variation to cart from there.

In this tutorial, we will see how to turn the WooCommerce shop into an… Ajax cart with quantity inputs. Enjoy!

WooCommerce: Hide Add to Cart If Already Purchased

We already saw how to hide add to cart for logged out users and how to find out if a user has already bought a given product – so I said why not combine the two snippets and figure out how to hide the add to cart button if a logged in customer has already purchased a product?

After that, however, I realized that the “woocommerce_is_purchasable” filter offered by the WooCommerce plugin makes the task much easier than just combining the two mini-plugins above.

So, here’s how it’s done – enjoy!

WooCommerce: Add to Cart Quantity Plus & Minus Buttons

Here’s a quick snippet you can simply copy/paste or a mini-plugin you can install to show a “+” and a “-” on each side of the quantity number input on the WooCommerce single product page and Cart page.

The custom code comes with a jQuery script as well, as we need to detect whether the plus or minus are clicked and consequently update the quantity input. jQuery might look difficult to many, but the beauty of this is that you don’t need to have a degree in jQuery – just copy/paste the code or install the lightweight plugin and see the magic happen.

WooCommerce: Rename “Add to Cart” Button if Product Already @ Cart

When talking about UX, or for very specific WooCommerce shops, you might need to tell the user a product is already in the Cart before re-adding it or increasing its quantity from the Shop/Category/Loop and Single Product pages.

The “Add to Cart” button label comes with a filter (actually 2 filters, one for the Single Product page and another for the other pages such as Shop), so all we need to do is targeting those two hooks. We will “filter” the label text in case the product is already in the Cart, and return that back to WooCommerce. If this sounds like Japanese to you (hey, unless you’re from Japan!) don’t worry – simply copy/paste the snippet below as per below instructions.

Enjoy!

WooCommerce: Add an Icon to the Add to Cart Buttons

Ecommerce is all about user experience, and making it easier for people to add to cart and checkout smoothly. Reducing the number of checkout fields is a great idea for example – as well as graphically communicating your number 1 objective: “please add to cart now!”.

So, how do you add an icon (or an HTML symbol) to the add to cart buttons in WooCommerce? This can be done in two ways – via CSS if you want to show Fontawesome Icons or via PHP if you prefer to use a simple HTML unicode symbol.

Let’s take a look at both methods!

WooCommerce: How to Add to Cart Multiple Variations at Once?

This is a very common issue for B2B / Wholesale WooCommerce website managers. In these case scenarios, clients usually need to add to cart multiple variations to cart on the same page, without refreshing it each time.

For example, a clothing wholesale client wishes to order 100 Medium, 150 Large and 50 Small t-shirts without having to switch dropdown/swatch choice, click on 3 add to cart buttons and wasting time.

Thankfully, there are WooCommerce plugins for that. And today I give you a few premium choices.

No matter whether each variation is displayed in a table and has its own add to cart button or there is a single add to cart button for all variations – ordering more products at the same is a breeze!

WooCommerce: Change Add to Cart Quantity into a Select Drop-down

The default WooCommerce Add to Cart “Quantity Input” is a simple input field where you can enter the number of items or click on the “+” and “-” to increase/reduce the quantity.

A freelance client hired me to turn that input into a “Select” drop-down. For their audience and UX requirements, it makes sense to let their customers choose the quantity from a drop-down instead of having to manually input the number.

Online there are complex snippets, but I decided to make things easier. The WooCommerce function responsible to generate the quantity input is called “woocommerce_quantity_input“.

Luckily, it’s a pluggable function – which means we can simply add this exact same function name to our child theme’s functions.php to completely override it. Enjoy!

WooCommerce: Edit Add to Cart Default, Min, Max & Step Product Quantity

Yes, there are many plugins that already achieve this. But my goal at Business Bloomer is to save you from plugin conflicts, delicate updates and to make you learn some PHP.

So, here’s how you can add, with a few lines of PHP, a minimum, maximum, increment and default value to your Add to Cart quantity input field on the single product and cart pages. Who knew it was this easy?

WooCommerce: Custom Add to Cart URLs – The Ultimate Guide

In WooCommerce you can add a product to the cart via a custom link. You just need to use the “add-to-cart” URL parameter followed by the product ID.

This tutorial will show you how to create custom URLs to add simple, variable and grouped products to the cart – as well as defining the add to cart quantity and an optional redirect.

You will be able to see each possible scenario, and also copy/paste the custom URLs so that you only need to replace product IDs and quantities.

I strongly recommend you read through all the post comments in case you’re not sure about something – many people have asked the same questions over and over again e.g. “Is it possible to add more than 1 product to the cart?” (to which the answer is “no”, unless you install a custom plugin) or “Why does my product get added twice?

With this guide it’s much easier to place WooCommerce add to cart buttons on custom landing pages, pricing tables, blog posts, external websites, and so on. Enjoy!
