In this tutorial, we will learn how to hide the woocommerce payment gateway on the checkout page based on the shipping class. We will check for a specific product or for all product have specific shipping class. If a shipping class has been assigned to the product then hide the specific payment gateway on the checkout page.
Sometimes there is a payment method that we want to hide from the checkout page if the product has a specific shipping class (delivery method).
For example, you have a product that only accepts the pay-on-delivery method and want to hide the other online payment gateways then you will make conditions for that category’s product.
So we will learn about these conditions to hide the woocommerce payment gateway based on the shipping class. We will use the functions.php file to make a hook function to run this functionality.
Let’s get started!!!
As you know, you can apply different shipping classes to every product. So we will loop through all the products in the cart to check their shipping classes. We can use the
get_shipping_class_id() function to get the shipping classes of products.
So let’s jump to the main point of this tutorial to hide the woocommerce payment gateway method based on the shipping class.
We have two scenarios in case to disable the payment gateways based on the shipping class. First, if we want to check any product in the cart has a specific shipping class. The second is that if all products have a specific shipping class.
One Product in Cart has Specific Class
In this scenario, we will check if in the cart at least have one product that has a specific shipping class. Then we will make a condition to run the hook to hide the specific payment gateway on the checkout page.
Before checking the shipping class of the product in the cart, make sure you have applied the shipping class to that product from the backend. To check it, open your product in edit mode and click on the woocommerce Shipping tab. See the following image.
After checking, add that product to the cart and also add more products in the cart that has no shipping class which we want to check.
Now, we will make an action hook to execute the code and hide the payment gateway for a specific shipping class. So add the following code in your functions.php file.
Note: Use child theme’s functions.php for any customization. Check this tutorial on how to create a child theme in WordPress?
In the above code, first, we checked that the user is not an admin and then we loop through all the cart products and checked the shipping class of each one. If the shipping class found ‘ybc-class‘ then we unset the PayPal payment method and exit from the loop.
We disabled the payment method with payment gateway ID or Slug. To check the payment method ID or Slug, go to the woocommerce Settings menu and then click on the Payment tab. Here you will see all the available payment methods. Select the payment method by click on it and you will see in the URL, there is a query parameter ‘section‘ that is your payment method’s Slug or ID.
For checking the shipping class slug, see the following image of woocommerce settings options.
All the Products in Cart have Shipping Class
In this scenario, we will check if all the products in the cart have the same shipping class. Then we will hide the payment gateway if the condition will be true otherwise not.
So let’s have a look into the following code snippet to hide the woocommerce payment gateway based on all products have the same shipping class.
In the above code, it will check the user is not admin then check if all products have the same shipping class. If the condition will be true, the specified payment method will be hidden.
Thus, you can make any condition and disable any specific payment gateway for a specific product, if it has in the cart.
So, you learned about the woocommerce shipping class and how you can hide payment gateway based on the shipping class.
You also learned, how to check and make conditions if the cart has at least one product with that specific class and hide the payment method.
