Add tax item to an escrow order

This post is an addition to the article How to add taxes and discounts to a payment order and explains how to add tax item to escrow orders. We will use Taxable plugin as the basic tool for registering custom payment items.

Escrow orders introduced in the HireBee theme. They are processing differently to regular orders. So we should add modifications to make possible for Taxable plugin to add items to an escrow order.

You can add it in a custom plugin or child theme functions.php file. Or use Code Snippets plugin (more details in the instruction).

function arthemes_org_create_escrow_order( $workspace_id, $workspace ) { $order = appthemes_get_order_connected_to( $workspace_id ); if ( ! $order || ! class_exists( 'TAXABLE_Registry' ) ) { return; } $plugin = new TAXABLE_Registry(); $plugin->add_taxes( $order ); } add_action( 'waiting_funds_workspace', 'arthemes_org_create_escrow_order', 11, 2 );

How to add taxes and discounts to a payment order

Taxes and discounts are popular items in payment orders. These are the price modifiers that applied to a total purchase amount regardless of items in order. And if you want to know how to configure it on your site, powered by AppThemes, this article is for you.

First, the basics. The AppThemes has own payment module included in all their themes - AppThemes Payments. The framework for processing orders and payment gateways. So, instructions below will work for all software that uses AppThemes Payments module, including all AppThemes themes.

1. Use the built-in "Tax" setting to add a tax item in all orders.

This option can be enabled in General Payments settings by adding a non-zero "Rate" value.

And the order summary will look the following:

The Regional Taxes item added in the order summary table.

Works pretty fine, but it has some drawbacks:

You can't change wording "Regional Tax" to something else. Only via translat…

Disable receipt emails with 0 total for Vantage and Clipper themes

Receipt emails always send if option "Charge for Items" enabled in Vantage or Clipper themes. Even in cases when order total amount is 0.

There is no setting to disable such empty receipt emails, but it can be done using a small mod.

You can add it in a custom plugin or child theme functions.php file or use Code Snippets plugin (more details in the instruction).

function arthemes_org_send_user_receipt( $args ) { if ( ! empty( $args['order'] ) ) { $order = $args['order']; if ( ! (float) $order->get_total() ) { $args['to'] = null; } } return $args; } add_filter( 'appthemes_send_user_receipt', 'arthemes_org_send_user_receipt' );

This code filters parameters of the receipt email and removes the receiver if order total is 0. This will work fine in most cases. But be careful using AppThemes Coupons plugin and 100% discounts as it may also generate orders with zero total.

Home page banners for Vantage and HireBee themes designed to display an image on the background.

You just need to set the Featured Image for the Home Page.

By default it looks like this:

Default HireBee home page banner

Actually, you can display a video as well, but it's not so obvious and below it will be explained how to.

While ClassiPress theme has a Customizer option to upload a video instead of image, the Vantage and HireBee still require some more actions.

We will use the Gutenberg block editor and only one "Cover" block.

Create reusable block from your existing home page content

Group all existing blocks and add group to reusable blocks. Give it a name, for instance "Welcome banner". And remove it from the page.

Add new Cover block

Create new a "Cover" block and upload your video file in it.

Add your …

ClassiPress Sold Tag example

You can add it in a custom plugin or child theme functions.php file or use Code Snippets plugin (more details in the instruction).

/** * Adds the ad price field in the loop before the ad title. * * For sold ads replaces price with SOLD tag. * * @return void */ function arthemes_ad_loop_price() { global $post; if ( APP_POST_TYPE !== $post->post_type ) { return; } // Display Price tag for non-sold ads. if ( 'yes' !== $post->cp_ad_sold ) { cp_ad_loop_price(); return; } ?> <div class="price-wrap sold-wrap"> <span class="tag-head"><span class="post-price"><?php esc_html_e( 'Sold', APP_TD ); ?></span></span> </div> <?php } add_action( 'ini…
