WooCommerce PCI Compliance

WooCommerce PCI Compliance

As we’ve built almost 30 payment gateway integrations for WooCommerce, PCI compliance is a popular topic that we’re asked about frequently. Questions about PCI compliance with WooCommerce typically go along these lines: I’m concerned about PCI compliance with the {insert name} plugin. We have an SSL certificate and it sounds like that’s all that’s required. Does your plugin / {my payment processor} provide the rest of the secure environment or PCI compliance? To understand why…

How to Remove WooCommerce Tax Labels

This Ask SkyVerge question comes from Flora: Can I remove the “ex. tax” label that appears in the order details on invoices? I don’t need it to say this after prices. Shops that typically sell items excluding tax don’t require a notice that pricing is excluding tax, especially if the invoice contains a tax line item. For example, in the US, subtotals are usually displayed exclusive of tax, then tax is included as a line…

Happy Birthday, SkyVerge

2 years ago, Justin and I founded SkyVerge with the modest goal of taking over the world working for ourselves and building some plugins.

How to Hide SKUs on WooCommerce Product Pages

Here’s an Ask SkyVerge question from Marley: Is there a way for me to hide SKUs in WooCocommerce from the single product template without overriding it? I’m currently overriding the single product meta template and deleting the SKU from being adding, but I’d rather do this via a code snippet so I’m not overriding that template if it can be done. We covered this previously in our 20 WooCommerce How to’s, but I think it’s…

Overriding Templates in WooCommerce Extensions

WooCommerce has a system in place that will allow you to override core templates within your child theme. This means that you can copy a template file, edit it, and the edited version in your theme will be loaded instead of the core version of the template. We do encourage you not to do this, as most changes can be made via hooks (filters and actions) instead, and this method is far more upgrade-safe than…

Advanced Reviews: WooCommerce Product Reviews Pro

If you’ll humor me a moment, could you think about the last online purchase you made and where it was? For me, it’s easy — the answer is almost always Amazon 🙂 — but you may have to think a moment. You can even close your eyes if it helps! Now that you have it in your mind: when you made that purchase, what made you decide to buy the particular product you bought? Hold…
