WooWeekly #466: A/B Testing | Variable Product Options | Quantity Discounts

Hello there,

Welcome back to WooWeekly, your weekly appointment with WooCommerce tutorials, tips and updates handpicked for you (and the other 18,310 subscribers) so that you can learn something new.

Yet another busy week at Business Bloomer HQ, where I finally caught up on client work after spending days exclusively on my own business. I also built a custom “Related Posts” engine, so I could get rid of a plugin (YARRP). I redesigned my own blog’s single post header after 3 split tests, and spent 8 hours writing the whole A/B Testing experiment thing for you. Finally, GoDaddy renewed its WooWeekly sponsorship up to December 2023 and another huge brand signed up for 2024… I’m so grateful I have the budget to publish new snippets every week thanks to them!

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

1. WooCommerce Tips & Snippets

WooCommerce: A/B Testing, Statistical Significance Formula, Case Studies

In this article, I’d like to introduce you to the concept of split-testing, go through some statistics formulas, describe my first ever A/B test here on Business Bloomer, and finally share the PHP snippets I use for running quick A/B tests on this same WordPress / WooCommerce website, so that you can learn a thing or two about this very important topic. By Rodolfo Melogli, Business Bloomer

WooCommerce: Programmatically Rename Variable Product Attribute Options

I think the easiest way to explain this customization is with a case study. I have a variable product where I sell sponsorship packages for the WooWeekly newsletter. The “Start in” attribute dropdown is where a company picks the month for when the sponsorship starts. So, instead of manually changing the attribute names to “Nov 2023”, “Dec 2023”, “Jan 2024” in October 2023, then changing them again next month, and so on – I’ve come up with a way to rename attribute options dynamically, so that I don’t need to do any manual work. By Rodolfo Melogli, Business Bloomer

WooCommerce Quantity Discounts, Rules and Swatches Review

The default WooCommerce plugin doesn’t let you offer customers discounts based on the total order quantity. In this article, we’ll take a closer look at the WooCommerce Quantity Discounts, Rules & Swatches plugin from the team at Studio Wombat and see how it lets you optimize the shopping experience on your online store. By Maria Pirzada Ansari, CommerceGurus

How to Flip or Change a Product Image on Hover in WooCommerce

By the end of this article, you’ll know exactly how to easily add product image hover effects to your category/shop page in WooCommerce. All so you can reduce clicks and increase sales. By Gina Lucia, IconicWP

2. ICYMI: WooCommerce Articles

WooCommerce: Switch User Role If Customer Spent More Than $

This snippet will allow you to automatically switch user role once a certain spend is reached. The function will trigger when a customer places an order, so that we can calculate the total spent, and possibly switch their role. By Rodolfo Melogli, Business Bloomer

WooCommerce: Filter By Featured @ Products Admin

Today, we will study how to add a new filter beside the existing ones (“Select a category“, “Filter by product type“, “Filter by stock status“) so that you are able to see all your WooCommerce featured products or – in alternative – all products that are not featured. By Rodolfo Melogli, Business Bloomer

WooCommerce: Split Revenue On Specific Products

Well, this is one of those “steal my setup” tutorials – because I’m going to share the system I use to generate commission/split revenue records when specific products (which are the result of business partnerships) are purchased on the Business Bloomer WooCommerce website. By Rodolfo Melogli, Business Bloomer

WooCommerce: Customize Product Search Form HTML

So, how do we customize the HTML of the “Search products…” WooCommerce form (so, not the CSS, but the actual HTML output)? Let’s go! By Rodolfo Melogli, Business Bloomer

WooCommerce: “Bulk Edit” > Remove Categories @ Admin Products List

It seems you cannot remove product categories from the Bulk Edit products window, which is a bummer! Well, I’m not sure if this is a WooCommerce choice, but honestly it’s such a basic thing that I’m surprised there is no bulk edit option for that. By Rodolfo Melogli, Business Bloomer

WooCommerce: Show Rating @ WooCommerce Product Review Admin Email

The email that WooCommerce managers get when a product review is posted does not contain any sort of information regarding… the WooCommerce product review, and especially the rating. As a store owner, I definitely want to know whether the comment I’m about to moderate is (1) a product review and if (2) I need to reply to unfair feedback, so, let’s change that. By Rodolfo Melogli, Business Bloomer
