WooWeekly #489: Empty Cart Redirect | Simple Currency Switcher | Multiple Payments Per Order

Hello there,

Welcome back to WooWeekly, your weekly appointment with WooCommerce tutorials handpicked for you (and the other 18,788 subscribers), so that you can learn something new.

My Q1 2024 stats are full of interesting data; the one that I’m happiest about is the average hours of work per week, down from 26 to 22, and the fact that plugin sales are finally picking up (+973%). Here’s a stats recap I posted on Twitter. Thoughts?

Also, I’m pretty happy I found the time to schedule 2 new masterclasses (hope to see you then!):

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

WooCommerce Tips

WooCommerce: Empty Cart Redirect

The redirect page can be used to showcase ongoing sales, promotions, or new products that customers might be interested in. This can help generate interest and encourage customers to make a purchase. So, let’s see how we can redirect users from the empty Cart page to another page on the same website. by Rodolfo Melogli, Business Bloomer

How Top Brands Organize Their eCommerce Pages

When it comes to eCommerce pages, what is the key element that determines success or failure? Product pages. When designing and launching an eCommerce website, it is thus essential to make sure your product pages are designed correctly. This is especially true if the appearance of the product is particularly important – with fashion and clothing brands, for example. In this study, we analyzed the leading online clothing brands, identifying key elements and tactics to implement on your own eCommerce website. by Convesio

ICYMI: WooCommerce Snippets

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

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

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
