1. Brand New WooCommerce Content
The WooCommerce “Order Again” button displays for ‘completed’ orders on the Thank You page and View Order page. That’s a pity, because it would be useful to show it on the My Account > Orders page as well. The good news is that we can code it ourselves!
What if you want to show hidden information only to “administrators” or “shop managers?” What about displaying a custom “My Account” tab just for logged-in customers?
This article takes you through some of the best free and premium WooCommerce Stripe plugins for your store. But first, let’s learn more about the advantages of using Stripe as a payment option for WooCommerce.
In this post, we’ll show you several ways to customize the WooCommerce shop page to better highlight your business’ unique offering.
2. David’s WooCommerce Highlights
Here are a few notes written by David of PeachPay, WooWeekly co-author:
WooCommerce POS Gets a Boost
Exactly a week ago, WooCommerce announced expanded functionality for its card reader, which works with WooCommerce Payments & the WooCommerce mobile app. You can expect more synchronized inventory management between the 3 channels: in-person, website, and mobile app. The reader also now supports “Simple Payments,” which allow merchants to collect payments without making any inventory changes.
Paul Maiorana Talks Social Commerce
Late last week also saw Paul Maiorana speak to PYMNT’s Karen Webster about social commerce. This comes on the heels of WooCommerce’s recently announced partnership with TikTok. In the words of Maiorana: “Obviously social commerce is a big part of the evolution of commerce and the future of where folks are spending their time. There’s an opportunity for them to be influenced by the videos on TikTok or other social platforms, by their friends or folks in their network, not to mention advertising playing an important role in all those things as well”. Still waiting on Woo to support in-app purchases through Instagram though (which Shopify has supported for a while now)!
Shipping Rates by User Role
Offering different shipping rates based on user roles allows you to convert guests into customers. Fish and Chips allows you to do just that with the all-new selector: user role. This means that you can set a condition combining any role (or roles), with any other selector: shipping class, price, weight, quantity, volume, measures, category… and set any shipping cost and/or perform any special action: messages, coupons, blocks…
By default, when you search for orders in the WordPress > WooCommerce > Orders backend, using a SKU will give you 0 results. Which is pretty poor for a store manager.
Storefront is missing an important feature: the top bar. That’s a pity, because most ecommerce themes have either a dedicated widget area or somewhere you can add content in the theme options.
[Fully revised] So, what’s the solution for WooCommerce merchants, and is there any way to provide an equivalent checkout experience as ShopPay or Amazon? Let’s find out.
Here are two super simple snippets to achieve just that: reorder the My Account tabs, so your customers never miss that super important My Account section. Enjoy!
You got it — in this issue we’ll study the add_fee WooCommerce function, which indeed gives us the power to add custom fees to orders at checkout based on any criteria you define.
How to display all the discounted products in a custom category called “Sale”, without doing any manual work?
