WooCommerce: Remove “add-to-cart=123” URL Parameter After Add to Cart

The “add-to-cart” parameter in WooCommerce is used to create a custom URL that adds a specific product to the shopping cart. The “123” value is the product ID, and you can even specify a custom quantity. By clicking a link with this parameter in the URL, the user can add the specified product (ID# 123 in this example) to their cart without having to navigate to the product page itself.

The problem is that WooCommerce itself doesn’t automatically remove the “add-to-cart” parameter after a successful add to cart, and if you reload the page you will add to cart again! So, let’s see how we can remove this parameter in case you disabled the “redirect to cart” option.

WooCommerce: Empty Cart Redirect

An empty WooCommerce Cart page can be frustrating for customers, especially if they’ve been browsing and adding items to their cart.

Redirecting them to a relevant page, like the Shop page, can help them continue shopping and potentially complete a purchase.

The redirect page can be used to showcase ongoing sales, promotions, or new products that customers might be interested in. This can help generate interest and encourage customers to make a purchase.

So, let’s see how we can redirect users from the empty Cart page to another page on the same website. Enjoy!

WooCommerce: Customize The “You cannot add another __ to your cart” Notification

If a WooCommerce product is set to “sold individually” (i.e. the “Limit purchases to 1 item per order” checkbox is checked in the edit product page) and is already in the cart, the “You cannot add another product to your cart.” notification will appear if you try to add it to cart again, which is fair.

This message appears by default in WooCommerce. There is a workaround to disable it completely, but you can also customize the wording (which is what we’re covering next).

In fact, this notification comes with a PHP filter, which means we can override the content and adapt it to our user base and/or brand tone. Enjoy!

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: Remove “incl. tax” “ex. tax” Labels From Cart / Checkout / Order Totals

Do you want to simplify your WooCommerce prices by removing confusing tax labels?

This code tutorial is your guide to removing the “incl. tax” and “ex. tax” labels from your cart, checkout, and order totals in WooCommerce when your “Prices entered with tax” tax option is set to “Yes, I will enter prices inclusive of tax“.

Whether you find them unnecessary or want to create a cleaner pricing display, this tutorial will walk you through two effective snippets to achieve this customization.

Enjoy!

WooCommerce: Add Shipping Rate Description @ Cart & Checkout Page

Each payment method on the WooCommerce Checkout page comes with a description right below the label. What if we could achieve something similar for the shipping rates, so that we can explain to the customer the difference between each method?

This question came up today in our private Slack channel for Woo developers, and we were able to write a quick snippet that does the trick. Here’s the complete code – enjoy!

WooCommerce: Split Cart Into Packages

There are a million plugins out there that allow you to make the most of WooCommerce “cart packages” – this is a short way to say that you have the chance to assign cart items to multiple “packages“, so that the customer can pick different shipping methods for each package.

For example, imagine you sell products that are only available for “pick up in store“, and others that are shippable. By splitting the cart into 2 packages, the customer can place both product types in the same cart, but will be able to choose “Local pickup” for package 1 only, while for package 2 they’ll select one of the available delivery rates.

Splitting the cart into multiple packages is as easy as looping through the cart items, and assigning them to its own package array based on shipping class. Enjoy!

Cart item data from an external API?

I would like to save metadata in each item in the cart (collecting item data from an external API) and I would like this data to be maintained in the order.

I’m not interested in viewing it because it’s a metadata that serves me in the backend to process the order in the internal ERP.

Are there already any example snippets that can help me?

WooCommerce: Disable “You cannot add another __ to your cart” Message

When a WooCommerce product is set to “Sold Individually”, you can only add 1 item to the cart. If you try a second time, you will get the “You cannot add another “%s” to your cart” error message, so that the customer is aware that there is already that product in the cart.

However, you may want to either edit the message wording or completely remove it, especially if you automatically redirect to cart or checkout upon add to cart.

So, let’s study how to do the latter, which is much more complex than using the ‘woocommerce_cart_product_cannot_add_another_message‘ filter for editing the message content. Enjoy!

Cart slide-in?

How can I show a slide-in the appears after the user clicks the “Add to Cart” button, offers two options – Show Cart and Finish Order, and disappears after a specified time interval, let’s say 5 seconds? Somethinf like this: https://share.getcloudapp.com/YEuzmkDp

WooCommerce: Add Hyperlink to Shipping Method Label @ Cart & Checkout

Let’s say you want to help customers understand your shipping rates and benefits right on the WooCommerce Cart and Checkout pages, by adding a link to each shipping option (e.g. “View shipping FAQ“).

As you can see from the first and second screenshot below, if you enter any HTML within the WooCommerce shipping zone -> shipping method settings, this will be stripped out, and HTML tags such as hyperlinks won’t work.

So, how can we add a clickable text link to each shipping method, given that we can’t use the WooCommerce settings? Well, as usual, a quick PHP snippet can help us with that. Enjoy!

WooCommerce: Apply Discount to Cheapest Cart Item

If you run WooCommerce store promotions, this little snippet will help you with that. For example, how to run a “Buy 2 products, get one half off” or a “Buy 3 products, get the cheapest one for free” campaign?

The trick behind this workaround is to find the cheapest item by looping through the cart, and then to set its price so that it’s lower than the regular price. 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:
