Why I use WooCommerce

By The Socialite Media 1 month agoNo Comments

https://wordpress.com/?aff=5507Wondering why I use Woo Commerce? Being a WordPress user I have to say I love using Woo Commerce for my e-commerce solution!

Woo Commerce is the most popular shopping cart system in the world, powering over 30% of all eCommerce websites.  If your weighing up which e-commerce system to implement this is the article for you.  This post may contain affiliate links.

It’s Easy to Use

Being a digital marketer and not a web designer some WordPress plug ins can be quite challenging. Woo Commerce was so simple to set up.  It’s wonderful right out of the box, and it’s simple enough to configure without being a web expert.

It’s free

Woo Commerce is free. While there are upgrades for subscription services  or membership payments these are relatively low one off costs starting at $79.  While competitors like Sam Cart will charge you $90 a month to use their service or Shopifys lowest plan is $30 and up scales on the more products you sell.

Having a low investment is great especially when you are starting out or testing a product. Woo Commerce does not just handle small stores Woo Commerce drives the capability for major platforms.

It’s not all about the store

WooCommerce allows you to plug a store straight into your website. Other e-commerce providers make you build around the shopping cart. As marketers we know it is not all about the cart call to action. New users need to learn about the brand, perhaps see social proof and gain trust. All of these strategies can be built into your website and then you can add your woo commerce  store.

It Integrates seamlessly with powerful systems

An e-commerce store needs to offer a wide range of capabilities in order to meet the stores needs.   WooCommerce makes it easy to set up payment processing, shipping, tax levels, automatic emails, shipping, order fulfillment, refunds, customer service, merchant processing, all in one place.

Who loves accounting? Not me that’s for sure! Woo Commerce now integrates seamlessly with Quickbooks so you can save time by not having to enter that data! Win!!

It’s Easy to Add On To

There are so many add on’s to Woo Commerce today. Allow subscriptions and membership processing on your website. Wish lists and Loyalty programs!

How to remove the checkout fields easily

With an industry standard of cart abandon rate at 60%!!!! You want to make sure you do everything you can to make the check out process easy and seamless.

But let’s face it I am a marketer not a coder. I know what I need but the implementation of code is not my forte. I found this article today by Peter Starvaro

He is a complete star and can help the absolute beginner remove check out fields in your woo commerce plugin. Using this method you can configure your cart in five minutes.


If you are using WooCommerce for digital products then you obviously do not need all of the checkout fields (billing details) that are on the checkout page by default.

Seeing as multiple people have contacted me to fix their websites after following various guides on “How to remove the WooCommerce checkout fields”, I have decided to write a post on how to safely but very easily do this.

The thing is, all of these guides advise you to directly modify your functions.php file which I am highly against.
If you are not familiar with coding and you cluelessly follow their instructions there is a high chance that you will break your website.
Don’t believe me? Take a look at the user comments from these guides, I guarantee that there is at least one person that is upset because their website broke.

Below I’m going to show you the safest and quickest way to remove the checkout fields from WooCommerce and if you do make a mistake you can very easily undo the changes, unlike if you were to modify functions.php directly.

1. Install the plugin My Custom Functions.

This plugin allows you to easily and safely add functions, snippets or any custom code without directly editing your functions.php file.

The code entered in the plugin will run safely and will not generate any fatal errors, this means your website will not break if there is an error in your code.

Also, the custom code you add into the plugin will continue working, no matter how many times you update or switch your theme.

2. Once you have installed the plugin go to Appearances and then click on Custom Functions.
You will see a white text area where you can enter code.

3. To remove all of the checkout fields from WooCommerce, copy and paste the below code into the Custom Functions plugin.

/* WooCommerce: The Code Below Removes Checkout Fields */

add_filter( ‘woocommerce_checkout_fields’ , ‘custom_override_checkout_fields’ );


function custom_override_checkout_fields( $fields ) {
unset($fields['billing']['billing_first_name']);
unset($fields['billing']['billing_last_name']);
unset($fields['billing']['billing_company']);
unset($fields['billing']['billing_address_1']);
unset($fields['billing']['billing_address_2']);
unset($fields['billing']['billing_city']);
unset($fields['billing']['billing_postcode']);
unset($fields['billing']['billing_country']);
unset($fields['billing']['billing_state']);
unset($fields['billing']['billing_phone']);
unset($fields['order']['order_comments']);
unset($fields['billing']['billing_email']);
unset($fields['account']['account_username']);
unset($fields['account']['account_password']);
unset($fields['account']['account_password-2']);
return $fields;
}

4. If you take a look at the code, you will notice that it is fairly easy to understand which checkout field each line represents.

For example, the below code hides the fields:
– First Name
– Last Name
– Company

unset($fields['billing']['billing_first_name']);
unset($fields['billing']['billing_last_name']);
unset($fields['billing']['billing_company']);

If you would like to display any checkout fields that have been removed, you can simply delete the line of code that represents the specific field.

That’s all there is to it! Simple, Fast and Safe!
If you encounter any errors you can simply remove the code from the Custom Functions plugin and your site will go back to how it was.

How To Remove The Additional Information Tab

You may be wondering how to remove the Additional Information tab on the single product page.
You can easily remove it by adding the below code into the Custom Functions plugin (underneath your existing code).

/* WooCommerce: The Code Below Removes The Additional Information Tab */
add_filter( 'woocommerce_product_tabs', 'woo_remove_product_tabs', 98 );
function woo_remove_product_tabs( $tabs ) {
unset( $tabs['additional_information'] );
return $tabs;
}

If you prefer to use CSS to remove the Additional Information tab, you can add the below code to your style.css file.

/* WooCommerce: The Code Below Removes The Additional Information Tab */
li.additional_information_tab {
display: none !important;
}
