Welcome back to WooWeekly, your weekly appointment with WooCommerce tutorials, tips and updates handpicked for you (and the other 17,497 subscribers) so that you can learn something new.
The weather is still a bit crazy down here in Sicily, and with the summer approaching this is a tad unusual. At this stage, I don’t know what the weather will be in Athens in a few days – seems pretty hot alright, not sure if I’m ready for that!
Business-wise, I actually haven’t done much this last week as my brother came over for a few days. It’s nice to be flexible and spend time with loved ones when you can. I will get back to my WooCommerce Mini-Plugins challenge from tomorrow onwards – expect an update next week for the first June issue!
Back to WooCommerce tips now – enjoy.

1. WooCommerce Tips & Tutorials
You know, that’s one of the biggest WooCommerce display issues. Products have images of different proportions, different title lengths, some have review stars and some don’t, making the “product grid” layout a big mess in regard to height. In this fully revised tutorial, you have 2 possible solutions – give one of them a try! ~ Rodolfo Melogli, Business Bloomer
When logged out or if the logged in user has never done a purchase before, the WooCommerce Checkout page fields are possibly autofilled by the browser based on saved data / addresses. Let’s disable this. ~ Rodolfo Melogli, Business Bloomer
In this guide, we’ll cover everything you need to know to successfully transfer your Shopify store and all its products to WooCommerce and also share some tips to help make the process run smoothly. ~ Maddy Osman, Nexcess
Whether you’re a seasoned email marketer or just getting started, we’ll explore actionable tips and practical techniques to help you level up your communication game. ~ Rodolfo Melogli, Business Bloomer
2. ICYMI: WooCommerce Articles
This is an amazing way to save time for the customer, as they don’t need to manually add each product to the cart. In the background, after a successful purchase, some magic code adds products to the order, sets their price to $0.00 (so that the order total is not altered), and saves the order. ~ Rodolfo Melogli, Business Bloomer
Thankfully, WooCommerce gives us a nice prebuilt function so that we don’t need to create the array of EU countries manually. On top of that, it’s easy to manipulate that array in order to add / remove countries for different uses, such as getting the list of EEA (European Economic Area) countries or SCA (Strong Customer Authentication) countries. ~ Rodolfo Melogli, Business Bloomer
This time I want to show you how I programmatically define the price of my WooCommerce Mini-Plugin All-Access-Bundle product… based on other products. As of today, I sell 18 WooCommerce plugins, so, I came up with a custom bundle product where the regular price is the total price of all plugins, and the sale price is calculated with a fixed percentage discount. ~ Rodolfo Melogli, Business Bloomer
If you registered your WooCommerce website on Google Search Console for monitoring your SEO efforts and search appearance errors, you probably got this “No global identifier provided (e.g. gtin, brand)” email notification at some stage. I got it too. Here’s the smart workaround. ~ Rodolfo Melogli, Business Bloomer
For some reason, this information is only visible to the admin. It would be awesome to show the “sale price end date” to customers as well, don’t you think? So, let’s do it! ~ Rodolfo Melogli, Business Bloomer
WooCommerce gives us helpful shortcut functions that we can reuse in our code to get cart, checkout, account and product URLs without wondering if they have been modified by the website owner. In this way, you can always make sure you’re getting the correct URLs without wasting time looking for page/product slugs. ~ Rodolfo Melogli, Business Bloomer
