WooWeekly #502: Visual Hook Guide | GA4 | Increase Sales

Hello there,

Welcome back to WooWeekly, your weekly appointment with WooCommerce tutorials handpicked for you (and the other 19,245 subscribers!), so that you can learn something new.

Everything is back to almost normal here. I realized it’s a nice thing to go to the beach with my son first thing in the morning, spend some time playing and swimming, and then get some work done in the afternoon (except today, as on Weds I’m off). In this way we’re all happy and productive at the right time. A “family-first” approach always wins!

Business-wise, it’s been quiet lately (because I’m working less hours), I still have to finish some major client work. Yet, I spent almost 5 hours on a single blog post yesterday, so I hope you can at least take a look and let me know whether I wasted time or it’s actually helpful: WooCommerce Visual Hook Guide: Cart Page (Block Version)

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

WooCommerce Tips

WooCommerce Visual Hook Guide: Cart Page (Block Version)

I’ve put together a visual hook guide for the WooCommerce Cart Block. Please note – as of the date above, you can’t really customize the Cart Block via PHP – if you need to personalize the Cart page, move elements around, hide default elements, add custom content, you can play on the Edit Page and do the usual manual work with blocks. But if you wish to do that via code (custom plugin, snippet, child theme), then you must revert to the shortcode version – unless you get to understand my workaround provided within this visual hook guide. [Business Bloomer]

ICYMI: WooCommerce Snippets

WooCommerce: Set Product Upsells Programmatically

Upsells are a powerful tool, but manually entering them via the Edit Product page can be tedious. This tutorial dives into the world of programmatic WooCommerce product upsells, empowering you to leverage code for a dynamic and data-driven upsell strategy. [Business Bloomer]

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]
