WooCommerce Tips

WooCommerce: Rename The “Add to cart” Button Label

The “Add to Cart” button label cannot be changed from the WooCommerce settings unfortunately. Thankfully, this simple code will allow you to change it to whatever you wish e.g. “Add to Basket” or “Add to Order”. by Rodolfo Melogli, Business Bloomer

WooCommerce: Hide “View Cart” Button Upon Ajax Add to Cart

WooCommerce has a built-in AJAX functionality for adding products to the cart on archive pages (Shop page, product category pages, tag pages, etc.). Once you add a product, WooCommerce displays a “View Cart” button beside the “Add to Cart” one. With this snippet you’ll learn how to remove this button! by Rodolfo Melogli, Business Bloomer

ICYMI: WooCommerce Snippets

WooCommerce: Product Category Counter Shortcode

Today, we’re looking at a way to add product category counters on the product category page, wherever you wish – in the title, inside the description, in a second description, in a custom block. All you need is a simple shortcode. Enjoy! by Rodolfo Melogli, Business Bloomer

WooCommerce: Show Shipping Class ID @ Shipping Class Admin Table

What if you need to actually display the IDs inside the shipping class table, so that it’s easier for the store admin to get and use such data? Well, this snippet will help you do that. And thanks to Peter for sharing most of the code! by Rodolfo Melogli, Business Bloomer

WooCommerce: Set Default Shipping Class For All Products

Manually assigning a shipping class to each product can be tedious and time-consuming. Here’s where default product shipping classes come to the rescue! by Rodolfo Melogli, Business Bloomer

WooCommerce: Remove “incl. tax” “ex. tax” Labels From Cart / Checkout / Order Totals

This code tutorial is your guide to removing the “incl. tax” and “ex. tax” labels from your cart, checkout, and order totals in WooCommerce when your “Prices entered with tax” tax option is set to “Yes, I will enter prices inclusive of tax“. by Rodolfo Melogli, Business Bloomer

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
