How to Remove the Coupon Code Fields from Your WooCommerce Store

WooCommerce has the ability to let you setup coupon codes to offer to your customers that give them discounts on their purchases. You can actually disabling these site wide by going into the “Settings” options of your WooCommerce installation and browsing to the “General” tab to find the coupon options.

All you have to do is uncheck the “Enabled the use of coupons” box and your entire site will remove the coupon code fields. It’s just that easy.

But what if you want to let customers use coupons but you want greater control over where they can be applied. By default, WooCommerce will give your users the option to apply coupon codes when they are viewing their carts and when they are completing the checkout process.

You can remove the coupon code field with by editing a file that your WordPress theme uses or you can use our Remove WooCommerce Features plugin to handle it without writing any code or uploading any files on your server directly.

How to Remove Coupon Fields from WooCommerce Cart and Checkout with Code

You’re going to need to add some lines of code to your theme’s functions.php file if you want to disable the coupon field yourself. You can find functions.php inside your WordPress theme’s main directory. Download the file to your local machine and open it in a text editor. Go down to the bottom and add the following code if you want to remove the field from your cart page:

add_filter( 'woocommerce_coupons_enabled', 'my_remove_coupon_code_field_cart', 10 );
my_remove_coupon_code_field_cart( $enabled ) {
    if ( is_cart() ) {
        $enabled = false;
    }
    return $enabled;
}

If you want to remove the coupon code field from your checkout page then the code you need to add is much simpler:

remove_action( 'woocommerce_before_checkout_form', 'woocommerce_checkout_coupon_form', 10 );

Remember that you don’t need to add both chunks of code. The first is for the cart page only and the second is for the checkout. It’s also important to keep in mind that sometimes changes to your functions.php file can be temporary depending on how your WordPress theme is setup. Updates to your theme can and often will overwrite any changes that have been made so you’ll have to go through this process again if that happens to you.

Anyone afraid of modifying their theme, or inexperienced with the process, should think about hiring a professional WordPress developer to help out or consider using our Remove WooCommerce Features plugin.
