WooCommerce: Emails are not sending

W

One of the more frequent issues that we hear about day to day is that WooCommerce is not sending emails for new orders (or any emails at all). There are several reasons that this may be happening. The most common reason is that the status of order is such that an email is not going to be sent. Some times the email may not even be enabled, or the server is not sending the emails. While we do have...

WordPress: Adding custom fields

W

Every day that I get a CrossFit workout in, I like to record that on my site, Level Up CrossFit. But that is a time consuming task that I have less and less time for. I don’t want to stop doing that, so I decided to add some custom fields so that entry is easier and formatting is all done. Enter Advanced Custom Fields. This plugin makes it very simple. Just add the custom fields in the...

WooCommerce Services and the Nexus: Tax calculations are not shown

W

In WooCommerce you can use WooCommerce Services to make tax calculations easier. This uses the TaxJar API to do that for you. Sometimes though, you will have everything configured correctly, but taxes still show as $0 or not at all on the front end of your site. This is often because there is no Nexus available. To confirm this, make sure you have Automated Taxes enabled. Now let’s check...

What once looked like this: Now looks like this: The change is that these two settings have been hidden. Main image width and Thumbnail width If you see these missing, this...

WooCommerce Subscriptions Not Renewing

W

Often times WooCommerce Subscriptions will fail to renew for a recurring Subscription because Cron is either not working correctly on a site or because of this. For traffic based firing of Cron, I suggest using JetPack Monitor. It solves this limitation easily and effectively. For troubleshooting when WooCommerce Subscriptions Not Renewing (or other Cron based scheduled events) I like to use WP...

WooCommerce Subscriptions Can I Remove Product?

W

If I remove a product or a product variation from my store, will that effect past Subscriptions based on the product I removed? I get this question a lot, and it makes sense. If you run out of stock, you don’t want to sell it anymore. Or what if you just want to discontinue a product, but still plan to sell it to folks who already have a Subscription? The answer is yes, removing the product...

WooCommerce Multiply all costs by person count

W

Today I had a really great question about the Multiply all costs by person count option in WooCommerce Bookings. This can be a pretty confusing option. So no worries. If you got confused by this one, you are not alone. So you check the check box next to Multiply all costs by person count thinking “great, now the price will be multiplied per person”. In our example the Alien person...
