WooWeekly #488: SKU Redirect | Sold Individually Error | Checkout Conversions

Hello there,

Welcome back to WooWeekly, your weekly appointment with WooCommerce tutorials handpicked for you (and the other 18,773 subscribers), so that you can learn something new.

I had a “very interesting” last few days, with 66% of the family down due to flu, so I had to look after them. This is never ending, I guess. Kiddo has gone back to school now, so let’s hope for healthier days now that the temperature is in the low 20s…

Anyhow, here’s your weekly round-up of WooCommerce tips and tricks. Enjoy!

WooCommerce Tips

WooCommerce: Redirect URL With SKU To Single Product Page

Let’s say your WooCommerce product has the following permalink: domain/shop/t-shirts-tops-and-blouses/t-shirt-casual-v-neck-longsleeve-green-medium-cotton-stretch. Wouldn’t it be shorter, more fun and neater if you could also reach the same exact single product page by using domain/sku00001 in the browser bar, where “sku00001” is the product SKU? by Rodolfo Melogli, Business Bloomer

WooCommerce: Customize The “You cannot add another to your cart” Notification

If a WooCommerce product is set to “sold individually” (i.e. the “Limit purchases to 1 item per order” checkbox is checked in the edit product page) and is already in the cart, the “You cannot add another product to your cart.” notification will appear if you try to add it to cart again, which is fair. This message appears by default in WooCommerce. There is a way to disable it completely, but you can also customize the wording. by Rodolfo Melogli, Business Bloomer

ICYMI: WooCommerce Snippets

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.).
