WooWeekly #485: Shipping Class | Tax Labels | Conversion Optimization

Hello there,

Welcome back to WooWeekly, your weekly appointment with WooCommerce tutorials handpicked for you (and the other 18,727 subscribers), so that you can learn something new.

Kid is at home again, so this is yet another non productive week for yours truly. Apparently, some classmates have been sick, so we’ve been recommended to stay away for a while. This is never ending, LOL.

Anyway, there is great news indeed! We have an amazing new stage sponsor starting today – feel free to check out convesio.com when you get a chance. Business Bloomer has been running on Convesio for a couple of years and I’m very happy to see they’re willing to give back to the community. Thank you, Tom!

But now it’s time for your weekly round-up of WooCommerce tips and tricks. Enjoy!

ICYMI: WooCommerce Snippets

WooCommerce: Retrieve Paid Orders Only

At the moment there is no way to filter out free orders with a wc_get_orders parameter, so we need to find a workaround. My solution uses the “payment_method” parameter, which accepts a payment method ID; clearly, an order that comes with a specific payment method is a paid order. by Rodolfo Melogli, Business Bloomer

WooCommerce: Edit User Field @ My Account

WooCommerce users (customers) can edit some user data from the My Account page: name, email and password (Account details tab); and also billing and shipping addresses (Addresses tab). But what if we want to let customers set/edit their bio or their website URL, which are only editable from the WordPress edit profile page? by Rodolfo Melogli, Business Bloomer

WooCommerce Without Product Images

This is an edge case, however it may happen that a B2B business requires no product images and doesn’t want to use the WooCommerce image placeholder either (this shows on shop/category pages and the single product page when no featured image is added). by Rodolfo Melogli, Business Bloomer

WooCommerce: How To Set Up CRM & Email Marketing Integrations

In this post, I’ll walk you through the steps of connecting your WooCommerce store to top CRM and email service providers using the FuseWP plugin. You’ll learn how to automatically sync your customer data to your email list and assign tags and categories based on the products they purchase. by Rodolfo Melogli, Business Bloomer

WooCommerce: “Order Again” Button For Cancelled Status

The “ORDER AGAIN” button shows on the Thank You page after completing an order and on the individual View Order page within the customer’s My Account page, but only for completed orders. What if we want to enable this feature for processing orders as well? Or maybe for cancelled ones? by Rodolfo Melogli, Business Bloomer

WooCommerce: Send Cancelled Order Email to Customers As Well

The customer receives no cancelled order notification. So, let’s change this, and let’s add the customer email address to the list of people that receives this WooCommerce email. by Rodolfo Melogli, Business Bloomer

WooCommerce: Send Pending Order Email Automatically

The “Customer invoice / Order details” WooCommerce email notification is often used for manually sending payment requests to customers – it’s not automatically triggered like other WooCommerce emails. So, let’s fix it: if you create a manual order from the backend, set it as pending, add some products to it and “Save”, the email notification will trigger on its own thanks to this snippet. by Rodolfo Melogli, Business Bloomer
