WooCommerce is the largest ecommerce platform by sheer number of stores and it doesn’t look like things are slowing down. In fact, it seems like the fun is just beginning. The platform isn’t even a decade old and it was only acquired by Automattic (the parent company of WordPress) in 2015. Despite the fact that […]
WooCommerce coupon settings allow you to define allowed products (or product categories). What’s missing, however, is the other way around: how to set up a product so that it can never be discounted? Thankfully, a handy WooCommerce filter comes to the rescue (“woocommerce_coupon_is_valid_for_product“) and we can therefore make all coupons “invalid” when a given product […]

The year is 2001 and every Stanford MBA is a dot-com startup founder. Online shopping is a brave new world teeming with new entrants boasting dubiously high valuations. Online shoppers are easily elated, not nearly as fickle as those of today. They are overjoyed merely at being able to buy something without leaving the comfort […]

If you’ve taken the ConfigureWoo online course, you’ll know that WooCommerce adds its own “WordPress Customizer” section called “WooCommerce”, indeed. From there you can manage some settings such as the store notice, product images, checkout fields and so on. What if you want to add your own settings, and let yourself or your client toggle […]
We’ve already seen how to update user meta after a successful order, but this time our goal is to “correct” or “edit” a checkout field value after the order is placed. You could for example add a phone number prefix if it’s not there, and by doing so, correct the phone number before sending it […]

Testing the WooCommerce checkout is extremely important for your ecommerce business. Every time you install a new plugin or update WordPress you might run into issues: for example, the cart and payment pages could stop working until you fix the problem. You don’t want to lose sales and undermine your website reputation, do you? So […]
The WooCommerce plugin fully integrates with the WooCommerce Stripe Payment Gateway plugin, developed by Automattic itself. With this free plugin, Stripe payment gateway can be enabled via the WooCommerce settings and once your Stripe “Live Publishable Key” and “Live Secret Key” are set, your WooCommerce shop is ready to take credit card payments powered by […]
The WooCommerce plugin comes with its own free version of PayPal Standard. PayPal can be enabled via the WooCommerce settings and once your PayPal email is entered your WooCommerce shop is ready to take PayPal payments. Now, there is extensive documentation online which explains, with a little bit of code, how to switch PayPal account […]
If you’re familiar with HTML, you can add “maxlength” and “minlength” attributes to an input field in order to force its value to be min X and max Y characters long. This is all good and easy, so we might as well see what happens on the WooCommerce Checkout page once we apply such attributes […]

I had the honor to speak at WCEU 2020 thanks to WooCommerce, who hosted me in their Sponsor track. It was a short and sweet lightning talk on the first day (Friday), called “Customizing The WooCommerce Checkout To Improve Conversions“, followed by a live coding session on Saturday. Here’s the video recording of the lightning […]

We already saw a lot of examples e.g. hiding checkout fields if a product is virtual or hiding checkout fields if a checkbox is manually checked… but this time I want to hide a field dynamically – automatically – based on whether another checkout field is empty or no value is entered in it. In […]

We already saw how to hide Order Notes on the WooCommerce checkout page. This time around, however, our goal is to “move” them – and specifically remove them from their default position (under the shipping form) and add them back under the billing form. As you can imagine, this is a combo snippet: (1) we […]
By default, the WooCommerce Checkout page redirects you back to the (empty) Cart page in case there are no products in the Cart. Now, there are times when you still need users to see the Checkout page and avoid this redirect. And thankfully, WooCommerce provides us with two filters that we can use to immediately […]
Here’s a super quick snippet you can use to rename the WooCommerce checkout “state” field label for both billing & shipping. Of course you can learn by example and apply the same snippet to other checkout fields, all yopu need to change is the field ID. Enjoy! PHP Snippet: Rename State Label @ Checkout Page […]
I’m surprised WooCommerce doesn’t offer this field out of the box. Most ecommerce websites actually require a shipping phone to organize delivery and communicate with the end customer in case there are problems. Thankfully, there is a hook (filter) for that. It’s called “woocommerce_checkout_fields” and can be used to remove, move or add checkout fields […]
If you want to increase your AOV (Average Order Value), you can definitely start from the WooCommerce Checkout page. A client asked me to place a “Donation Area” close to the “Place Order” button (so at the bottom of the page, once customers are ready to pay) to drive more awareness around this add-on. All […]
I had the pleasure to speak at WordCamp Prague 2019. I spoke about “10 PHP Snippets to Increase WooCommerce Sales” and managed to show some simple coding to the audience.

If you’re familiar with the upcoming Gutenberg editor, you’ll know there have been a million doubts in regard to accessibility. So, accessibility matters – and WooCommerce has a few issues as well. One interesting accessibility fix is the error notification system on the checkout page. Yes, the missing fields error show on top of the […]

A WooCommerce email notifications pops up – yet another new order, money, revenue, happiness. However, hold on a second – money is not technically in your bank account until you’re forced to give a refund. Even worse, until you realize not only you had to give a refund, but also getting the item back costs […]

Coupons: the good, the bad and the ugly. WooCommerce coupon codes are great to convert more sales – but sometimes they get users to pause / stop placing the order until they find a coupon code online (you did it too, I know). One good workaround that the internet giants such as Amazon and eBay […]

This is your ultimate guide – complete with shortcodes, snippets and workarounds – to completely skip the Cart page and have both cart table and checkout form on the same page. But first… why’d you want to do this? Well, if you sell high ticket products (i.e. on average, you sell approximately one product per […]
This is a great WooCommerce snippet (or plugin, if you wish to call it like that) for those who want to provide conditional checkout fees. For example, you might need to display custom checkout radio buttons to pick premium packaging types, gift wrapping options, specific services or whatever can increase your AOV (Average Order Value).

If you sell downloadable/virtual products and need to simplify your WooCommerce checkout when such product type is in the Cart, you’ve come to the right place! Here’s a simple snippet to check if there are only “virtual” products in the Cart and if yes, all the billing fields and order notes are hidden (but name […]

All WooCommerce orders go to either “processing”, “completed”, “on-hold” and other default order statuses based on the payment method and product type. Sometimes these statuses are not enough. For example, you might need to mark certain orders in a different way for tracking, filtering, exporting purposes. Or you might want to disable default emails by […]

Less is more (sometimes). On this website, I’m already forcing max 1 product in the Cart and automatically redirecting users to Checkout upon add to Cart. As a result, I definitely didn’t need the whole “Mini-Cart Widget Dropdown Content” either. To test, try to “hover” onto the shopping cart icon on the top right, and […]
The “Place Order” button is the call to action you want ALL customers to take, right? Well, changing its label to a more specific, custom message could mean a small increase in sales conversion. Thankfully, you can try this with as low as 4 lines of PHP, even if you don’t know coding. Just copy […]

When going legal… you need proof. Accepting the “Terms and Conditions” on the checkout is required in order to placer an order – but how can you, WooCommerce store admin, “prove” that the Terms and Conditions were actually ticked by the customer? One of the solutions might be to save such acceptance in the database […]

If you decide to delete or reorder checkout fields, you probably also need to change the checkout field with “autofocus”. In plain English, this is the checkout field where the keyboard cursor goes automatically to on checkout page load (by default, this is the Billing First Name). As usual, changing this default behavior is very […]
Ok, we all know that the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will come into force on the 25th May 2018.
