Alter WooCommerce payment methods based on shipping

A few days ago we struggled with a WooCommerce webshop which had a specific payment method which was only valid for pick-up the products in the store. It took a while before we figured out how to make this work. At first we had a javascript / jQuery approach which did the job, but wasn’t that flexible and could lead to conflicts on different themes etc.

Thanks to a lot of Googling (we love that word) we found the solution which we’re going to share with you! The code below works for WooCommerce 2.1 and above.

How to change allowed payment based on selected shipping method

It’s easy to change which payment methods are allowed if you know how WooCommerce handles payment methods and shipping methods. You can use the code below in your (child) theme functions.php or in a custom plugin. In below code we remove the “Cheque” payment method (WC_Gateway_Cheque) when “Local Pick up” is NOT selected.

* Change payment methods based on shipping methods
function wpf_alter_payment_method($list){

// Get all available shipping methods
$chosen_rates = ( isset( WC()->session ) ) ? WC()->session->get( 'chosen_shipping_methods' ) : array();

// Check if the specific shipping_method ID is chosen.
if(!in_array( 'local_pickup', $chosen_rates ) ) { // Change "local_pickup".

// Remove specific payment method from list. In this case "WC_Gateway_Cheque"
$array_diff = array('WC_Gateway_Cheque'); // Change "WC_Gateway_Cheque"
$list = array_diff( $list, $array_diff );
return $list;
add_action('woocommerce_payment_gateways', 'wpf_alter_payment_method');

How to install plugins on localhost

We like to develop our WordPress sites on a localhost (for example with XAMPP). Working locally is great: it’s a lot faster, we can test on different configurations, we can use versioning software and there are less risks. We only noticed a lot of problems with installing plugins from within the WP Plugin page.

From Geev to WP Fortune

In March 2013 Geev started developing free and premium WordPress plugins. This turned 2013 and 2014 in fantastic years with many new adventures. We set high standards for our service and support. Our support and development team has doubled in the last year to answer all questions in time.

Because we set such high standards for our plugins and services we had many satisfied customers and our plugins are used on many sites around the world. And that’s really great!

But…  no matter how much pleasure we had in the last year we lost time for other projects we like to do. We miss developing challenging websites, creating corporated identities and making gigantic promotional campaigns. And that’s a shame! That’s why we have decided to move all our WordPress plugins and WordPress support services to the new company WP Fortune! And that’s why you’re reading this blog 😉
