WooWeekly #425: Pick Your Price

Hello there,

Welcome back to WooWeekly, your weekly appointment with WooCommerce tutorials, tips and updates handpicked for you (and the other 17,405 subscribers) so that you can learn something new.

Well, sorry for the delay, as I usually send out WooWeekly earlier. In fact, I spent the whole morning waiting on Lorenzo to be released from his creche as he didn’t want to leave LOL. It’s only his 3rd day of school and he’s doing fine. I guess this is great news for him and also for his 2 parents, who can get back to life (and work) after 2 years…

Anyhow, back to Woo now – enjoy!

1. Brand New WooCommerce Tips

WooCommerce: Allow Customers To Define the Product Price

This is a great customization for those WooCommerce store owners who are willing to accept donations, custom amounts, or need anyway that the customer enters a custom price on the product page for paying an invoice or a bill. ~ Rodolfo Melogli, Business Bloomer

WooCommerce: Get Order Fees Total

Well, there is actually one line of PHP you can use to calculate the order total fees (despite I didn’t think so while I was writing this post). You will still find the original way to calculate order total fees (by looping through all order fees and adding up totals), as well as the one liner that can help you save time. ~ Rodolfo Melogli, Business Bloomer

Integrations for Managed WooCommerce Stores 

Beyond helping you run a more efficient business, these integrations come at no charge, helping to reduce the costly bloat that is often hidden when selecting a fully functional ecommerce solution. Bradley Taylor, GoDaddy

2. ICYMI: WooCommerce Articles

WooCommerce: Show Product Image @ Emails

With this little trick, you can revert this default behavior and indeed show images beside their product name inside the email order item table. ~ Rodolfo Melogli, Business Bloomer

WooCommerce: Item Custom Field @ Edit Order Page

When, as an administrator, you edit an order and are in the Order Items table, you have the chance to edit the item quantity, subtotal and discounted price. What if you also want to have the freedom to display and edit another custom field, so that it is saved inside the order? ~ Rodolfo Melogli, Business Bloomer

WooCommerce: Get Product Parent Categories

For example, it’s easy to “get the current product’s categories“, but how can we get the “parent product categories” only? In today’s snippet we will see how this can be achieved in 7 lines of PHP ~ Rodolfo Melogli, Business Bloomer

WooCommerce: Disable A Plugin For Customers / Shop Managers

There are a million reasons why this could be helpful. So, let’s see how to actually deactivate a plugin (not disable its scripts – but actually deactivate it) with a handy piece of code ~ Rodolfo Melogli, Business Bloomer

WooCommerce: Bulk Replace Product Inside Existing Orders

It’s a one-off operation that could take hours if it had to be done manually, based on the number of existing orders. With this simple snippet, however, you can edit an unlimited number of orders, and let the code replace ordered items. ~ Rodolfo Melogli, Business Bloomer

WooCommerce: Add Custom Meta Box @ Order Admin

So, here’s how we add a new “section” (meta box) to the single order edit page in the WordPress dashboard, and how we display some content in it. ~ Rodolfo Melogli, Business Bloomer
