WooWeekly #501: Automatic Upsells | Paid Ads Tracking

Hello there,

Welcome back to WooWeekly, your weekly appointment with WooCommerce tutorials handpicked for you (and the other 19,227 subscribers!), so that you can learn something new.

Spoiler alert – please skip the next couple of paragraphs if you’re having a bad day.

Well, the sad day has come. My best friend here in Sicily, after a few weeks in hospital, has passed away. When something like this happens to a person of the same age, also a dad, and a very close friend, I guess you tend to “project” this on yourself, and wonder “what if this happens to me?“. Your brain starts spinning.

But I’ll try not to think about this, and accept an unacceptable death. I will always remember him – it happens that he was also my graphic designer, and helped me with the Business Bloomer rebranding back in 2019. So, his legacy lives on. RIP, my friend!

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

ICYMI: WooCommerce Snippets

WooCommerce: Remove Second Item When Item Removed From Cart

This approach might be relevant for specific promotional offers (e.g. BOGO) or custom coded product bundles. In this case, you may want to remove a second item from the cart – programmatically – once a product is removed. [Business Bloomer]

WooCommerce: Deposit Payment @ Order Pay Page

What if we want the customer to pay a deposit / first installment / partial payment on the Order Pay page (say the order total is $999, and you want them to pay $111 only)? Well, we could use a URL parameter – if that’s present and the value is lower than the order total, we can “filter” the order total and let the customer pay whatever amount. [Business Bloomer]

WooCommerce: Add Content To “New Account” Welcome Email

First impressions matter, especially in ecommerce. When a customer creates an account on your WooCommerce store, the “Your {site_title} account has been created!” welcome email is your golden opportunity to solidify a positive connection. However, the standard WooCommerce email might fall short… [Business Bloomer]

WooCommerce: Simple Add To Cart Click Counter

By implementing an Add to Cart click counter, you gain a crucial piece of the puzzle, allowing you to calculate your conversion rate more accurately. You already have the number of product sales available, so with this additional piece of data you can assess how effective your product pages are. [Business Bloomer]

WooCommerce: Send Default Order Email For Custom Status Transition

What if you want to trigger the “Order Completed” email if the order status transitions from your custom order status to the “completed” one? Or what if you want to trigger the “Order On-hold” email beyond its default triggers? [Business Bloomer]

WooCommerce: Add Content To The “Order Pay” Page

The “Order Pay” page serves a specific purpose – allowing customers to complete payment for manually created orders. Let’s add some HTML content above the table, like a heading, some text, a banner, or whatever you may need to help the customer submit their payment asap! [Business Bloomer]

WooCommerce: Display Cross-Sells For All Purchased Products @ My Account

Are you looking to enhance the shopping experience for your customers on your WooCommerce store? One effective strategy is to display cross-sells for all purchased products on the “My Account” page. [Business Bloomer]
