Add WooCommerce Email Recipients Conditionally

This comes from an interesting question we got from Helmar: Is it possible to send an “order received” email to a second recipient only if the order contained a tangible product? Background: If I receive orders with tangible products, my shipping company gets a CC of that order in order to fulfill it. If the order contained no tangible product, there’s no need for them to receive a copy of the order. This is definitely…

Add a Registration Link to WooCommerce Customer Emails

I got a purchase receipt email recently that had a lot of great details, such as the shipping status of each item ordered, along with some related items that I might be interested in. However, there was one section that I found kind of interesting: the email had a registration prompt telling me all of the benefits of creating an account with the site. I thought this was pretty neat, and adding a prompt like…

Add Plugin Settings to WooCommerce, Part 2

This is post 6 of 8 in the series “Build a WooCommerce Extension” In part 1 of “Adding plugin settings to WooCommerce”, we showed you how to add plugin settings to an existing settings section (e.g., “Products > General”) or to an existing settings tab in a new section, such as a new section under “Products”.

Change the WooCommerce Price Display

Here’s an interesting question we got from Mike: I sell grass fed beef skewers, and there are a certain number of skewers per pound. Customers should be able to select the number of skewers, but I want to show them the cost per pound so they can compare them. Is this possible? There are a couple moving parts to this question, but the optimal solution here would be to change the WooCommerce price display. As…

How to Add WooCommerce Delivery Estimates

Showing a delivery estimate for WooCommerce shipping methods can help your customers determine which method is best for the order. For example, while free shipping may be available, what if this takes longer and the customer needs the package by a certain date? To avoid situations like this which may result in an abandoned cart, you can communicate the estimated shipping time up front during the cart / checkout process instead. While you can show…

Prevent Repeat Purchase with WooCommerce

Depending on what kind of products you sell, you may want to prevent customers from purchasing a WooCommerce product more than once from your store. For some shops, you may want to disable any repeat purchases at all, or you may want to prevent repeat purchase only for a specific product. We’ve seen this most commonly with WooCommerce Memberships, as shops may want to restrict a free trial membership from being “purchased” again, or restrict…

Four Years of WooCommerce

Congratulations to our friends at WooCommerce this week! In case you didn’t know, WooCommerce is just about 4 years old, with the first release on September 27, 2011. Since they wrote about WooCommerce turning 1 on September 24, we decided we could post this a bit early as well 🙂 First, we couldn’t be happier to be a part of the WooCommerce ecosystem, and it’s hard to believe four years have gone by. Our founders…

Default to a WooCommerce Customer Order Note

Here’s a question we came across on the WooCommerce repository recently: “The default behavior before the update was for the Add Note section to default to Note to Customer. We have part of our workflow expecting this and now there is an additional step changing the type of note. Is there a way for us to change the default back to Note to Customer?” The default option for adding an order note was changed in…
