WooCommerce: “Continue Shopping” Button @ Single Product Page

A freelance client hired me a while ago to display a “Continue Shopping” button on the Single Product Page, next to the Add to Cart. A simple way to send their users back to where they were coming from without clicking the “previous” button on the browser πŸ™‚

Here’s how it’s done, featuring an awesome WordPress function called “wp_get_referer()”! Continue reading WooCommerce: “Continue Shopping” Button @ Single Product Page

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: Get Product Data (ID, SKU, $) From $product Object

I’ve been wanting to publish this guide for a long while. As a WooCommerce development freelancer, every day I repeat many operations that make me waste time… and one of them is indeed “How to get ____ if I have the $product variable/object?“.

For example, “How can I get the product SKU“? Or “How can I get the product short description“? Or maybe the product stock level, shipping class, tax class, price, regular price, sale price, and so on… hopefully this article will save you time.

Of course, not always you have access to the $product global – but you may know the $product_id. In this case, you can use the wc_get_product WooCommerce function to calculate the $product object – you find this case scenario below.

Other examples might be the order or the cart page. Once again, in here you don’t really have a $product available, so you have to loop through the order/cart items and “get” it. After that, you can then calculate and get any piece of information you require out of $product. 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: Change No. of Thumbnails per Row @ Product Gallery

WooCommerce 3.0 completely revolutionized the single product page featured and product gallery images, including their PHP. If, in the past, a simple filter from WooCommerce was enough to change the number of thumbnails per row (https://docs.woocommerce.com/document/change-number-of-thumbnails-per-row-in-product-galleries/), this does not exists anymore πŸ™

So, let’s see how we can achieve this in WooCommerce 3.0 and above. For this example we’ll use two themes – in fact some theme-specific CSS is also needed together with the PHP.

WooCommerce: Rename “Tags” Label @ Single Product Page

A #CustomizeWoo student reached out for premium support in regard to “WooCommerce taxonomies”. The question was: How do I change the label “tag” into something else, for example “brand”? Well, this is how it’s done!

Please note that this does not change the “tag” permalinks (URL, slug, etc), but only the “Tags” label on the frontend, and only on the Single Product Page.

WooCommerce: Enable Payment Gateway Only for “Order Pay Checkout”

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!

WooCommerce: How To Change Product Image Sizes

WooCommerce lets you resize the product images on Single Product and Shop pages from Appearance > Customize > WooCommerce > Product Images.

Besides, you don’t have to manually regenerate the images after resizing them with an additional plugin, as WooCommerce can crop, resize and automatically regenerate image sizes out of the box.

Despite this seems easy enough, it often happens that themes or plugins may override the “Customizer” settings, and even hide them entirely, which causes a lot of confusion.

In this post, we’ll take a look at the default WooCommerce image settings, and finally with a list of FAQ we’ll try to cover all possible scenarios in case you can’t find a solution. Got a question? Feel free to use the comment area!

WooCommerce: Enable Holiday / Pause / Vacation Mode

Sometimes, just like physical stores, your WooCommerce website may need a few days off!

And instead of saying nothing and getting stuck with unwanted orders and tons of customer support, maybe you can temporarily pause your WooCommerce store.

In WooCommerce words, this means hiding the add to cart buttons (one line of code) and also show a little notice on every WooCommerce page (one simple setting).

In this way customers are informed that the store is on hold, preventing misunderstandings about order processing times.

Enjoy!

WooCommerce: Add Custom Product Fields (e.g. RRP) Without a Plugin

The manufacturer’s suggested retail price (MSRP), or the recommended retail price (RRP), is the price at which the manufacturer recommends that the retailer sells the product at. You might have seen this in an ad, on a magazine, on a price tag: “RRP: $50. Our price: $39!”.

WooCommerce entrepreneurs can take advantage of this “marketing trick” too. The only problem is: how do we show this “extra field” on the single product page AND in the product edit page, so that the website owner can add this easily?
