Woo Additional Terms


This plugin will be most helpful for e-Commerce stores in Europe as many countries in the union require the cancellation or GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) policy to be displayed as a separate checkbox and agree by the customer before placing the order.

You can optionally link a page that contains your additional terms and conditions. For example, you may want to include a cancellation policy and ask customers to agree to it before placing the order.

If the checkbox is not checked and the customer attempts to place an order, an alert box will be shown that prevents them from moving forward.

The plugin setup is minimal and requires no knowledge of HTML or CSS. It could not be simpler.

Unfortunately this does not seem to work. Tried with WooCommerce v3.4.2 (WP v4.9.6) and no new settings appear. Also tried code fix on line 18 as suggested by another user but that did not do anything.

Despite not being updated in a year, this still works great. My only criticism is that it would be nice if the additional terms appeared in a box like Woocommerce's default T&Cs do.

Great Job! Important!: Must edit this class from woo-additional-terms/includes/back-end.php Replace the line 18 -> $woo_additional_terms = ( !empty( get_post_meta($order->id, 'woo-additional-terms-checkbox', true ) ) && get_post_meta( $order->id, 'woo-additional-terms-checkbox', true ) === 'on' ) ? __('Accepted', 'woo-additional-terms') : ''; with -> $some = get_post_meta($order->id, 'woo-additional-terms-checkbox', true ); $woo_additional_terms = ( !empty( $some ) && get_post_meta( $order->id, 'woo-additional-terms-checkbox', true ) === 'on' ) ? __('Accepted', 'woo-additional-terms') : ''; For working on last wordpress. Thank You!
