WooWeekly #458: Dynamic Email Recipient | Variation Sales Counter

Hello there,

Welcome back to WooWeekly, your weekly appointment with WooCommerce tutorials, tips and updates handpicked for you (and the other 18,184 subscribers) so that you can learn something new.

Not a good week for me, with my father-in-law who is not doing very well and is in hospital. Fingers crossed, prayers, positive thoughts, or whatever you prefer, are very welcome. Hope to have better news next week!

Anyhow, here are this week’s WooCommerce tips – enjoy.

1. WooCommerce Tips & Snippets

WooCommerce: “New Order” Email Recipient Based on Billing Country

By Rodolfo Melogli, Business Bloomer

The amazing thing about WooCommerce is that you can override any setting with a few lines of code. In today’s example we will try to code a solution where the “New Order” WooCommerce email will be delivered to a custom recipient based on the billing country. Read more

WooCommerce: Count Variation Sales (Shortcode)

By Rodolfo Melogli, Business Bloomer

This will require we either query the orders that contain such variation ID, and then calculate the sum – or that we install a snippet on day 0 so that we can count variation sales from that moment onwards, without having to query and calculate anything. We will study the latter, and then display the result via a shortcode, so that you can use it anywhere, even inside the variation description. Read more

By Maddy Osman, Nexcess

WooCommerce: Display Long Description Instead Of Short One @ Single Product Page

By Rodolfo Melogli, Business Bloomer

Now, what if you don’t use the “Short description” in your WooCommerce store, and you wish to display the “Long description” on the right hand side of the featured image instead? Well, here’s a simple snippet for you. Read more

WooCommerce: Hide SubCategory Products On Product Category Pages

By Rodolfo Melogli, Business Bloomer

You’d think that this was a core WooCommerce setting – it’s not. In fact, from the WordPress “Customizer“, you can set the product category page display to “Show products” only, “Show subcategories” only, or “Show subcategories and products” (see screenshot below). But these 3 options, in my opinion, could and should do much better. Read more

WooCommerce: Limit Daily Sales For Cheap Products (Anti-Spam)

Today, I’d like to share another anti-spam snippet that I’m currently testing on Business Bloomer. Most carding attacks, in fact, end up with the purchase of a single product in the $1-$9 range – which means that limiting the daily sales for specific, inexpensive, products may do the trick. Read more ~ Rodolfo Melogli, Business Bloomer

WooCommerce: Delete Customer After a Failed (Spam) Order

In today’s “episode” I will try to clean the WordPress User database table after a failed order, because I’m really angry when “17PmU3MmKZS9ZAy7 17PmU3MmKZS9ZAy7” manages to register an account on Business Bloomer after a carding attack! Read more ~ Rodolfo Melogli, Business Bloomer

WooCommerce: Checkout Anti-Spam Honeypot

Here’s my second attempt to fight against WooCommerce spam, without installing a captcha plugin. A few posts ago I covered the My Account user registration spam, so today I want to tackle the WooCommerce Checkout, and try to “trick” spam bots. ~ Rodolfo Melogli, Business Bloomer

WooCommerce: Disable “Password Changed” Administrator Emails

The “Password Changed” email is – actually – a WordPress core notification. It goes to admins when a WordPress user changes their password, and the email body says something along the lines of “Password changed for user: XYZ“. WooCommerce provides us developers with a handy filter, that we can use for this exact reason. ~ Rodolfo Melogli, Business Bloomer

WooCommerce: Add to Cart Form @ Shop Page

Today I’d like to experiment a little, and see what happens when we include the “add to cart template” (i.e. the one you see on the WooCommerce Single Product page) under each product on the WooCommerce Shop page. ~ Rodolfo Melogli, Business Bloomer
