There are certainly ways and plugins to turn WooCommerce into a quote engine, but today I want to share a super simple workaround that could be helpful to many.
In a nutshell, we’ll use the same WooCommerce cart/checkout flow, rename a few strings and buttons, enable an offline payment gateway (so there is no actual payment), let the admin revise the order and send back the final invoice, and finally get the customer to pay for their order.

The WooCommerce Order Pay page URL is generated by the store admin while creating a manual order from the backend. This URL is then forwarded onto the client, where they can pay for the order and complete their purchase.
The other annoying thing about the order pay page, together with strict page permissions, is the fact that the Order Pay page shows no customer billing/shipping address whatsoever. The customer needs to trust in you 100000%, because they’re about to submit a payment without knowing whether they’re paying for the right thing.
Let’s see how we can add the billing/shipping customer address at the top of the Order Pay page. Please note that printing personal data on a public URL is dangerous, so you need to make sure you don’t share the Order Pay URL with anyone but the customer in such case.
So, here’s a quick fix for you. Enjoy!

Some plugins such as “deposit” and “subscription” payments send customers to the “Pay for Order” page in order to complete a pending WooCommerce order.
In certain cases, also, the customer is forced to log in and this really affect sales conversion rate – instead of the checkout form customers see this notice: “Please log in to your account below to continue to the payment form“.
On top of that, there is another notification error for guest orders: “To view this page, you must either login or verify the email address associated with the order” – we’ll fix that as well.
Here’s a quick snippet to make sure customers do not have to log in when on the “Pay for Order” page, so that they can immediately go ahead with the payment.
The WooCommerce function in question is wc_customer_has_capability, and thankfully we can override this with the user_has_cap filter. Enjoy!

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!
