WooCommerce: Hide Price If Product Out of Stock @ Frontend

Sometimes, the nature of ecommerce businesses requires some extra features. Thankfully, WooCommerce allows to customize pretty much everything based on whatever condition.

Today, we’ll see how to hide prices for out of stock items, on the shop, categories, archives, loops and single product page.

Think of an art gallery which sells unique art pieces, and doesn’t want to let users know for what price sold an item. Or maybe an online business that often runs discounts – why reveal at which price sold an item that is now out of stock? Of course, there are way more case scenarios – I’d be curious if you shared yours in the comment area.

But for now, copy and paste the snippet and that’s it, you’re good to go. Enjoy!

In this example, “Simple 2” is out of stock, and therefore its price is not visible. This works on the WooCommerce Shop page but also…
…on the WooCommerce Single Product page. Code below works also for variations that are out of stock!

	return $price;

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

    Interesting WooCommerce customization here.

  1. This doesn’t work correctly if you have the Pagination option set to ‘Load More’ (Under Appearance -> Customise -> Shop Settings -> General).

    It will only be applied on items shown when the page loads, items that appear after clicking ‘Load More’ will still show the price.

    1. Hi John, Appearance -> Customise -> Shop Settings -> General is not default WooCommerce so it’s probably your theme or a plugin

  2. Hi Rodolfo,
    Thanks for this useful snippet! Would it be possible to show a specific text (‘sorry, out of stock’ for example) in stead of just hiding the price in case an item is out of stock?

    1. Niels, thanks so much for your comment! Yes, this is definitely possible, but I’m afraid it’s custom work. If you’d like to get a quote, feel free to contact me here. Thanks a lot for your understanding!

  3. Hello Rodolfo Melogli

    1-What if about a simple product that has 2 prices {Regular price and Sale price}?
    2-What about if the product is variable?

    1. Should work for those case scenarios as well

  4. It’s not working in my css file. It’s given an error.

    1. Hi Emily, this goes in the functions.php file or in a Code Snippet
