WooCommerce: Sort Shipping Costs from Low to High

A client had several shipping rates on the cart page automatically generated by FedEx, USPS, UPS and similar plugins via their API. Problem was, they wanted to sort them by price as opposed to grouping them by provider.

Thankfully, with a simple “uasort” PHP function, it’s possible to take the shipping rates array and sort it by amount before returning it back to the screen. If you don’t know PHP, simply copy/paste!

WooCommerce: Only Allow 1 Product in the Cart

Here’s how to limit your WooCommerce Cart to just one product at a time.

This simple PHP snippet can be used for many applications. For example, your store may only allow to buy one subscription at a time. On this same website, on the other hand, customers can only purchase one product at a time so it’s easier for me to manage invoicing and payments, given that I switch PayPal and Stripe accounts based on what’s inside the cart.

Here’s the quick fix – enjoy!

WooCommerce: Apply Coupon Programmatically if Product @ Cart

WooCommerce: Remove Shipping Labels @ Cart (e.g. “Flat Rate”)

WooCommerce functions add the shipping method label on the Cart totals, on the left hand side of the price. This ruins the price amounts alignment (subtotal, shipping, taxes, total) and many clients have asked me to remove it completely. Also, it could be that sometimes you don’t want to show the name of a shipping rate on the front-end. So, here’s how you do it!

WooCommerce: How to Fix the “Cart is Empty” Issue

For some reason, sometimes you add products to cart but the cart page stays empty (even if you can clearly see the cart widget has products in it for example).

But don’t worry – it may just be a simple cache issue (and if you don’t know what cache is that’s no problem either) or a theme / plugin “conflict”.

The WooCommerce Cart page is extremely delicate; it displays dynamic content based on cookies and PHP sessions, is coded with PHP but also JS and Ajax, requires to be excluded from cache and is subject to problems in case of out of date software.

So, here’s your “Empty Cart” troubleshooting checklist you can follow without any technical knowledge.

I also recommend you read through the (many) comments, because many developers shared what worked for them too. Good luck!

This is a very cool snippet that many of you should use to increase your average order value. Ecommerce customers who are near the “free shipping” threshold will try to add more products to the cart in order to qualify for free shipping. It’s pure psychology.

Here’s how we show a simple message on the WooCommerce Cart page. Enjoy!

WooCommerce: Hide Shipping Rates if Free Shipping Available

If Free Shipping is available, you possibly don’t want to show the other premium shipping options. WooCommerce shows by default all shipping rates that match a given shipping zone, so it’s not possible to achieve this from the settings alone.

Thankfully, the “woocommerce_package_rates” filter allows us to manipulate the shipping rates before they are returned to the frontend. In this example, we will disable all shipping methods but “Free Shipping” so that free shipping remains the only possible choice.

Here’s the code to add to your functions.php. Enjoy!
