I’ve been working online while travelling throughout South America for almost 3 months so far and I’ve had a lot of time to think about solopreneurship. After 5+ years as a sole trader, it’s now the right time to write my thoughts. I really hope to give you at least one idea, one tip you can take away.
I would love if you could spend some time to think about it, and leave your comment below to tell me what your thoughts are.

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!

There is a slightly annoying thing on the WooCommerce Thank-You Page and WooCommerce emails. Users looking at the order table can actually click on the Products they just purchased and abandon the page before taking the action you want them to take (see image below).
So, I coded a simple PHP snippet to remove such links. As usual, 1 line of code is more than sufficient:)

We’ve already seen how to set the default values for certain dropdowns (billing country and state, precisely). But what can we do when we want to define the defaults for the other “text” inputs, such as the billing_city?

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.

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!

Hey WooCustomizers, the Visual Hook Guide is back 🙂
In this episode, I’ve created a visual HTML hook guide for the WooCommerce Account Pages (there are multiple pages such as the My Account as logged in user, My Account as logged out, etc).

Let me know in the comments what you think about this resource!

On a recent job, a client asked me to get the logged in username in WooCommerce. Interesting task! He needed to show that on the checkout form page and also on the order email. Actually, this is quite simple to do and can be used for several applications. Continue reading WooCommerce: Get/Edit Logged in Username @ Checkout
