Support » Plugin: Gift Aid for WooCommerce » Show/hide per product type/category?

  • Resolved tylersands


    Hi there,

    I’m using your plugin, which works great! However, I’m using this on a site which sells physical products as well as accepting donations.

    My question is, is it possible to hide the Gift Aid option when there are physical products in the cart? Perhaps I could target a certain category to say “hide if cart contains physical product”.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated, thank you!

    Hey @tylersands,

    First of all, glad it’s working well for you! Out of interest which site are you using it on? Trying to gather some example of it in the wild. 🙂

    Moving on, this is something I’ve got plans to tackle in the coming weeks. I’d be interested to hear your thoughts on how exactly you’d like to implement this, as I’ve had several lots of feedback from other users so it’s definitely something that the plugin needs.

    I envisage having a check-box in the settings to toggle between standard donations-only mode, or donations-plus-products mode.

    Regarding the latter, I’d probably add a check-box in the product data section of the product admin screen that lets you check whether or not this product is eligible for Gift Aid, with a breakdown on the cart/checkout to show exactly how much of the order is eligible. I could also add the same box at a category level as you suggest!

    I’m also considering the option of being able to add an arbitrary donation in the cart/checkout.

    Not technically a support question, more of a feature request. This is now in my roadmap for the plugin.

    +1 for this feature – having the ability to toggle ‘gift aid eligible’ on/off on products would be super!

    I’m using Event Tickets Plus + WooCommerce to sell tickets, some can include gift aid, but not others so this feature would be super useful.

    hey @jamesdclarke,

    I’m currently assessing what is needed for this feature so I hope to be able to roll this out by the end of April.

    Thanks for your feedback!


    Hi Dave,
    +1 for this feature too. I guess it could work at the Product level or the Category one, either way would be fine in my case.
    I’m using a separate plugin to add an optional donation to the cart, so if that is in the roadmap for this plugin down the line then that’s even better.

    hey @badlydrawnben

    Appreciate the feedback! I’ve got a few quiet weeks coming up in May and I’m hoping to get the refactor to support this kind of approach in place then along with a few other minor improvements.

    I think it’ll definitely be product based initially, but I’ll certainly look at category level support as well.




    +1 for this much needed feature.

    Did you ever manage to get round to doing this? We have a store which sells normal products but also allows donations.

    Currently the gift aid box pops up for all products. We just need it for the donation based product (as per your discussions above)..
