WooCommerce Discount Cart

Reading Time: 2 minutes

This is the season of discounts. Every WooCommerce store is offering discounts of all description to take advantage of the holiday craze.

However, displaying the total price and the discount could pose some difficulties for WooCommerce Single Product pages and product listings. In many cases, the price breakdown is present at the bottom of the page. However, the developers could easily present an improved breakdown that displays the price after discounts and the discounted amount.

The following code snippet will add this functionality to the WooCommerce stores. It is important to note that with appropriate modifications, this snippet could be used to display other information such as:

  • Total Sales
  • Total Orders
  • Total of All Shipping Costs
  • Total of All Discounts Used
  • Total of All Items Ordered
  • Total Sales Per Item

Put the following snippet in the functions.php:

function cw_discount() {
   global $woocommerce;
   $cw_discount = 0;
   foreach ( $woocommerce->cart->get_cart() as $cw_cart_key => $values) {
       $_product = $values['data'];
       if ( $_product->is_on_sale() ) {
            $regular_price = $_product->get_regular_price();
            $sale_price = $_product->get_sale_price();
            $discount = ($regular_price - $sale_price) * $values['quantity'];
            $cw_discount += $discount;
   if ( $cw_discount > 0 ) {
        echo '<tr class="cart-discount">
    <th>'. __( 'Secure', 'woocommerce' ) .'</th>
    <td data-title=" '. __( 'Secure', 'woocommerce' ) .' ">'
            . wc_price( $cw_discount + $woocommerce->cart->discount_cart ) .'</td>


add_action( 'woocommerce_cart_totals_after_order_total', 'cw_discount');
add_action( 'woocommerce_review_order_after_order_total', 'cw_discount');

Here is is how the output of the snippet would look like. As you could see, the discount is shown on a separate line.
