1. Brand New WooCommerce Content

WooCommerce Snippet: Remove “Clear” Button @ Variable Product Page

As soon as you select a product attribute, a “Clear” button appears beside the dropdown/s in order to reset the selection/s and start anew. As usual, why “display:none” stuff with CSS when there is a PHP way?

2. David’s WooCommerce Highlights

Here are a few notes written by David of PeachPay, WooWeekly co-author:

Returning to the Topic at Hand:

If you work with a retailer who has a brick-and-mortar presence or if you are such a retailer yourself, then you should keep apace with the most recent developments regarding PayPal. For context, last year, PayPal acquired Happy Returns for an undisclosed amount. Happy Returns focused on leveling the playing field for retailers competing with Amazon & Walmart on facilitating painless returns. As someone working on leveling the playing field for retailers in a different arena — checkout & payments — I loved the company’s mission. But given that most acquisitions end up going nowhere, I was skeptical about where the PayPal deal would lead. 

Well, as it turns out, that skepticism may not have been warranted in this instance. PayPal recently announced that it is rolling out Happy Returns’ services for free with PayPal Checkout to over 5000 locations. That’s a lot. Apparently 78% of Americans already live within a 10-mile radius of at least one of these locations. So definitely look into this if you fit the bill. 

Learn.WordPress So You Can Learn WooCommerce:

In case you’re rusty on your WordPress core, let this serve as a reminder that staying up to date on WordPress developments will help you become a better WooCommerce builder. Don’t take it from me, just listen to Courtney Robertson explain why on Do the Woo and check out learn.wordpress.org if you haven’t already.

WooCommerce Snippet: Display Prices Inc + Ex Tax

The WooCommerce settings allow you to show prices including OR excluding tax. But what if we want to show both at the same time e.g. “$100 inc. tax – $89 ex. tax”? In this tutorial, we’ll see how to add a suffix via PHP, and specifically at how to add the price including tax if your store displays prices excluding tax.

WooCommerce Function of the Week: wc_get_customer_last_order
