Adding WooCommerce Memberships Restriction Notice Merge Tags

We got an interesting question this week from a developer: Is there a way to show Membership Plan Names in a “content restricted” notice instead of products to buy? In this case, the site wasn’t selling Memberships, but rather taking applications for them, so the plan names made more sense. This question can show us a couple interesting concepts today to look at: (1) creating a helper method to get Keep Reading…

Repeating a Fixed Date Membership with WooCommerce Memberships

Howdy and happy new year, folks! The new year partly inspired this Memberships post, as an year cycle ends, and it’s likely that many of you Memberships users might have set up membership plans that are a year long. But how about plans that are set to start exactly on the 1st of January of any given year? Since fixed dates memberships were introduced in version 1.7.0 there is the Keep Reading…

Automatically Link WooCommerce Orders at Customer Registration

We got an question from Rob in our comments section on our post about adding registration prompts to WooCommerce emails that makes for an interesting tutorial. To summary Rob’s question: How would you reconcile a previous order when a guest user registers? In other words: say I buy from your store and use my email (test@test.com) at checkout.

Get all WooCommerce Refunded orders

Disable Repeat WooCommerce Purchases for a Product Category

We previously wrote up a tutorial on preventing repeat purchases for a particular WooCommerce product, or for any product in your store. However, based on the comments there, some merchants wanted to disable repeat WooCommerce purchases for a set of products, but not all products. In order to do so, you could use a product category to check whether repeat purchases should be allowed or not. This would let you Keep Reading…

Hide WooCommerce Product Reviews Until Purchase

We’ve got an Ask SkyVerge questions queued up for today from Sam: Is there a way to display the WooCommerce review tab only for customers who bought the product? That way users who never bought the product will not be able to see the review tab. Product reviews are one of the most important indicators of social proof for an eCommerce site, and they’re an excellent tool to help customers Keep Reading…

Prevent WooCommerce Checkout for Add-on Products

Today’s Ask SkyVerge question comes from Ian (I’m paraphrasing it a bit though): Is there a way to prevent purchase if a customer only has certain products in the cart?
