WooWeekly #399: Place Order, File Upload, AI

Hello there,

Welcome back to WooWeekly, your weekly appointment with WooCommerce tutorials, tips and updates handpicked for you so that you can learn something new.

Yesterday we celebrated our first wedding anniversary but we were too exhausted to enjoy that fully. The only one who had a great time was my 18mo-old son, LOL. Hopefully we’ll get some time off this coming weekend.

Anyhow, let’s get back to Woo. Enjoy!

1. Brand New WooCommerce Content

WooCommerce: Rename “Place Order” Based on Chosen Payment Gateway

We’ve already seen how to rename the “Place Order” button on the WooCommerce Checkout page, but today I want to find a way to rename it dynamically and conditionally i.e. based on the payment gateway that is selected while checking out. ~ Rodolfo Melogli, Business Bloomer

WooCommerce: File Upload Plugins For Order Personalization

This article shows the top solutions that make uploading images for products for customers a breeze and enhance their customization abilities.

2. David’s WooCommerce Highlights

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

The Future of Payments 

If you’re interested in the future of payments, at least as far as the WooCommerce ecosystem is concerned, then tune in to the most recent episode of Do the Woo, featuring Inpsyde’s Robert Windisch and yours truly. Bob Dunn called it a lively discussion, and both Robert and I certainly had a lot to say amid the giddy atmosphere that pervaded WCEU. In short, what began with WooCommerce Payments seems to be continuing apace with GoDaddy’s hosted SaaS offering, complete with a payment solution powered by Poynt. These developments beg the question: are more hosts going to roll out their own payment gateways/processors so as to cash in on basis points for every transaction? And, if so, what can they do to differentiate their offering in order to achieve more market share? Is it possible that one host will use another host’s payment solution? Lastly, what will WooCommerce, the company, make of all this? 

The Fastest WooCommerce Store That I Have Encountered 

The fastest store using WooCommerce that I have yet encountered is a premium wrestling gear brand called RUDIS. I had not heard of it until recently, and it turns out, perhaps unsurprisingly, that they are using a headless set-up instead of solely relying on WooCommerce. It’s a combination of Netlify, Gatsby, and WooCommerce for the checkout page… and it’s blazing fast. Props to the guys at Zeek for putting this masterpiece together. If you’re interested in hearing how they pulled it off, then you can read the full case study here.

It’s Not Just About 1-Click Checkout

As one of the co-founders of PeachPay, I have had to explain what we do again and again to clients, investors, and partners alike. What started out as a 1-click checkout offering is fast becoming a comprehensive checkout and payment solution for WooCommerce stores. In a tweet that got some attention in the WooCommerce space, I lay out everything that we have shipped in 2022 so far. Much more to come during the second half of this year! 


WooCommerce: Switch Shop Columns Responsively

What if I wanted to show 5 columns of products on large desktops, 4 columns on desktops, 3 on tablets and 2 on smaller devices? Well, this “dynamic” behavior is – this time around – managed by CSS. Let’s see how it’s done! ~ Rodolfo Melogli, Business Bloomer

WooCommerce Function of the Week: woocommerce_wp_text_input

Learn how to add custom fields to settings in WooCommerce meta boxes — and give back to WooCommerce when you find some code that can be improved. ~ Rodolfo Melogli, PostStatus

WooCommerce: Get List Of All Customers

Today’s snippet is a helpful shortcut for getting the list of customers in your WooCommerce website. This may be necessary during customization, especially if you need tailor-made features for administrators and shop managers in the backend or frontend. ~ Rodolfo Melogli, Business Bloomer

WooCommerce: The Need For Custom Order Tables

In this article, we introduce you to the WooCommerce custom order tables – what is it, the new tables added to the structure, and how they can benefit your WooCommerce store. Let’s begin! ~ David Mainayar, Business Bloomer
