WooCommerce: Product Category Price Range

WooCommerce variable products display a price range by default, which goes something like this: $MIN-$MAX. Now, wouldn’t it be nice, on the Shop page or Category Widget, to show the price range for each category?

Well, as usual this is a customization that can apply to certain online businesses only, so hopefully you’re one of them. Either way, this is yet another chance for you to learn PHP applied to WooCommerce. Enjoy!

Here’s a nice snippet to show MIN and MAX prices for any given WooCommerce product category

PHP Snippet: Show Price Range Beside Product Category Names @ Shop Page

Note: this snippet replaces the the category product counter with the price range. In case you wish to display both, code changes slightly.

		} elseif ( $product->is_type( 'variable' ) ) {
			$prices = $product->get_variation_prices();
			$min = current( $prices['price'] ) < $min ? current( $prices['price'] ) : $min;
			$max = end( $prices['price'] ) > $max ? end( $prices['price'] ) : $max;
	return ' (' . wc_format_price_range( $min, $max ) . ')';

Where to add custom code?

You should place PHP snippets at the bottom of your child theme functions.php file and CSS at the bottom of its style.css file. Make sure you know what you are doing when editing such files - if you need more guidance, please take a look at my guide "Should I Add Custom Code Via WP Editor, FTP or Code Snippets?" and my video tutorial "Where to Place WooCommerce Customization?"

Does this snippet (still) work?

Please let me know in the comments if everything went as expected. I would be happy to revise the snippet if you report otherwise (please provide screenshots). I have tested this code with Storefront theme, the WooCommerce version listed above and a WordPress-friendly hosting.
