WooCommerce: Exclude Shipping Method From Specific User Role

WooCommerce offers a robust shipping system, but what if you want to tailor it based on the logged in user role?

In this blog post, we’ll show you how to exclude specific shipping methods from users with a particular role. This allows you to, for example, offer free shipping only to VIP members or restrict express delivery options to regular customers.

All you need is the user role slug (WordPress Dashboard > Users -> All Users > above the user list table you’ll see a horizontal list displaying the current user roles available on your site (e.g., Administrator, Editor, Author). Hover on one of them and see the URL, which will contain the exact slug e.g. “customer”) and the shipping rate ID you wish to disable (e.g. “flat_rate:9”. For more info you can find out how to find IDs here: https://businessbloomer.com/woocommerce-disable-free-shipping-if-cart-has-shipping-class).

Display WooCommerce Analytics by user role?

Is there a way to create a type of WooCommerce user who can only see the Sales Reports (or only the Woo Analytics Area)?

We have a partnership with a direct sales network for one of our websites and they would like to be able to see the sales figures in real time without calling us.

Tax display by customer role?

In a WooCommerce store, I have two roles: Customer and Professional. In the WooCommerce options, I have selected to display prices in the cart and checkout with taxes included.

Now, I need for the Professional role to have the opposite setting, that in the cart and checkout the prices are displayed without taxes included.

Is there a way to modify that option depending on the role? If it is possible to do so, is there a filter or a clue from which I can start researching?

WooCommerce: Switch User Role If Customer Spent More Than $

Many businesses allow their customers to unlock benefits and discounts once a certain spend amount is reached.

Think about a “VIP club“, where members can get an exclusive 20% discount once they reach $1,000 worth of store purchases.

Let’s also say that, when the threshold is reached, you want to promote users from the “customer” role to a custom “VIP customer” role, so that it’s easier to segment your email marketing and overall targeting.

Well, the snippet below will allow you to switch user role once a certain spend is reached. The function will trigger when a customer places an order, so that we can calculate the total spent, and possibly switch their role. Enjoy!

WooCommerce: How to Create A Private Store

WooCommerce powers over 26% of global eCommerce websites and is an excellent and convenient way to create your online shop without writing a single line of code.  

But besides its convenience – another factor that makes WooCommerce a popular choice is its flexibility. While the core WooCommerce installation helps you create a basic online store with ease – specific paid WooCommerce plugins make it easy to create a customized and ideal business model of your choice. 

For instance, several businesses prefer a private WooCommerce store model to grant access or sell products and services to specific customers and hide from the others. This is where a private store for WooCommerce plugins comes into the picture. 

A great example is Oriflame – a direct sales leading beauty company that sells products for everyone and reserves some for specific VIP members on their website. They offer benefits like exclusive discounts, access to a complete range of products, and fast delivery to these VIP members. 

There can be multiple other reasons behind creating a private WooCommerce store. In this article, we’ll briefly touch on those reasons and share some of the best WooCommerce private store plugins you can use for your WooCommerce store. Let’s go!

WooCommerce: How to Offer Advanced Discounts

Offering discounts is a powerful, time-tested strategy to entice customers and boost sales. 

That’s because customers always appreciate a good deal – and helping them save money on products/services they’re interested in is a sure-fire technique to attract them. In fact, nearly 90% of shoppers used a coupon code last year, which shows how much customers value discounts. 

Discounts can also help you bring more traffic to your website, encourage shoppers to buy more, and thus, increase sales and revenue. So, they’re a win for both sides. 

The good news is WooCommerce offers a solid coupon functionality by default to help you create discounts on your store. 

While it’s great to get started, WooCommerce Discount plugins can come in handy for more advanced features like bulk-generating coupons, restricting discounts to specific users, or creating deals like Buy One Get One (BOGO).

This article will explore some plugins that can help you implement a discount strategy on your store in just a few clicks and “woo” your customers. 

Let’s dive in!

WooCommerce Wholesale: All-In-One Plugin Solutions

While WooCommerce is one of the most powerful and flexible ecommerce platforms on the market today, it was built for retail, and therefore it’s missing many important features for business buyers.

If you are setting up a wholesale store with WooCommerce, you will find many of these features fulfilled by small individual plugins. However, that approach comes with large disadvantages: reduced site performance caused by running a large number of plugins, and plugin conflicts that can lead to technical issues and errors.

One solution can be replacing several wholesale plugins with a single all-in-one WooCommerce wholesale suite solution. By doing that, you avoid cluttering the site with a large number of plugins, as well as avoid conflicts and errors, since all features are running under the same extension.

In this article let’s explore some of the best plugin suites on the market for wholesale sites, by looking at features, use cases, pricing and support.

The same is true for B2B ecommerce, yet there aren’t many good platform choices available for small-to-medium businesses that want to sell wholesale.
