WooWeekly #467: Variable Stock | Image Uploads | EU VAT Validator | Single Variations

Hello there,

Welcome back to WooWeekly, your weekly appointment with WooCommerce tutorials, tips and updates handpicked for you (and the other 18,348 subscribers) so that you can learn something new.

Yet another busy week at Business Bloomer HQ, with lots of client work that kept me away from building in public and focusing on my own business. Thankfully, life goes on, and I’ll catch up with all the items on my to-do list as soon as possible. In this logic, spending some more time on Twitter in the last few days really helped me figure out some important business decisions – you will definitely hear about them soon.

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

1. WooCommerce Tips & Snippets

WooCommerce: Variable Product “Cumulative” Stock Quantity

When a variable product stock quantity is managed at variation level, the stock status is either “In stock” or “Out of stock” without any mention of the quantity. It would be cool, however, and in certain cases only, to show the total stock quantity for all single variations. By Rodolfo Melogli, Business Bloomer

WooCommerce: Super Simple EU Vat Number Validation (VIES)

As an EU merchant dealing with VAT customers, I often find myself doing manual checks on the VIES VAT number validation website. By studying the available options on various online forums, I found a super simple workaround that doesn’t even require signing up for an API. By Rodolfo Melogli, Business Bloomer

How to Add Image Uploads for Your WooCommerce Products

Do you want to add image upload capabilities to your WooCommerce products? Then read this step-by-step tutorial to allow customers to upload images on your product pages. The uploaded images are added to the order and store administrators can download them from the order admin backend screen. By Maarten BelmansStudio Wombat

WooCommerce: How to Split Variable Products Into Simple Products

By default, WooCommerce displays all your variable products as just that – products with multiple different variations on its shop page. However, you might need a way to display each product variation as an individual product on your WooCommerce shop page to improve customer experience, search functionality and increase overall sales. By Rodolfo Melogli, Business Bloomer

How to Add Radio Buttons to Variations in WooCommerce

In a standard WooCommerce install, radio buttons, color, and image swatches aren’t used for products. Instead, customers are faced with dropdowns that take longer to flick through and hide all possible options until you click on them. By Gina Lucia, IconicWP


Advanced Product Fields for WooCommerce by Studio Wombat is the market’s fastest product options plugin. It allows you to easily add extra options to your products, such as text boxes, file uploads, swatches, date pickers, and more! Store owners can easily create product configurators and customers can effortlessly customize your products and select additional options and add-ons. The plugin is developed to be lightweight, yet feature-complete!

2. ICYMI: WooCommerce Articles

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: 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
