WooCommerce: Display Sale Price End Date @ Shop & Single Product Page

WooCommerce allows you to “schedule” the product sale price – you can define a start date and an end date, so that you can run your promotion automatically.

However, for some reason, this information is only visible to the admin. It would be awesome to show the “sale price end date” to customers as well, don’t you think? So, let’s do it!

The “ends 31 May” is the result of my customization. It reads the “sale price end date” and prints it beside the Sale badge. Cool, isn’t it?

function bbloomer_sale_end_date( $html, $post, $product ) {

	return $html;

Where to add custom code?

You should place custom PHP in functions.php and custom CSS in style.css of your child theme: where to place WooCommerce customization?

This code still works, unless you report otherwise. To exclude conflicts, temporarily switch to the Storefront theme, disable all plugins except WooCommerce, and test the snippet again: WooCommerce troubleshooting 101
