Woocommerce Product Attribute Hooks

In this post you will learn how to get the product sku, description, short description, regular price, shipping class and so on. You will not always have access to the $product variable, so in this tutorial you will see different ways to get your product information, even without the $product variable.

 

Using the $product variable

With hooks (e.g. do_action and apply_filters), additional arguments are passed to the function. You are allowed to use the $product object or you can declare the global $product inside your function.

// Get Product ID

$product->get_id();

// Get Product General Info

$product->get_type();
$product->get_name();
$product->get_slug();
$product->get_date_created();
$product->get_date_modified();
$product->get_status();
$product->get_featured();
$product->get_catalog_visibility();
$product->get_description();
$product->get_short_description();
$product->get_sku();
$product->get_menu_order();
$product->get_virtual();
get_permalink( $product->get_id() );

// Get Product Prices

$product->get_price();
$product->get_regular_price();
$product->get_sale_price();
$product->get_date_on_sale_from();
$product->get_date_on_sale_to();
$product->get_total_sales();

// Get Product Tax, Shipping & Stock

$product->get_tax_status();
$product->get_tax_class();
$product->get_manage_stock();
$product->get_stock_quantity();
$product->get_stock_status();
$product->get_backorders();
$product->get_sold_individually();
$product->get_purchase_note();
$product->get_shipping_class_id();

// Get Product Dimensions

$product->get_weight();
$product->get_length();
$product->get_width();
$product->get_height();
$product->get_dimensions();

// Get Linked Products

$product->get_upsell_ids();
$product->get_cross_sell_ids();
$product->get_parent_id();

// Get Product Variations and Attributes

$product->get_children(); // get variations
$product->get_attributes();
$product->get_default_attributes();
$product->get_attribute( 'attributeid' ); //get specific attribute value

// Get Product Taxonomies

$product->get_categories();
$product->get_category_ids();
$product->get_tag_ids();

// Get Product Downloads

$product->get_downloads();
$product->get_download_expiry();
$product->get_downloadable();
$product->get_download_limit();

// Get Product Images

$product->get_image_id();
$product->get_image();
$product->get_gallery_image_ids();

// Get Product Reviews

$product->get_reviews_allowed();
$product->get_rating_counts();
$product->get_average_rating();
$product->get_review_count();

Using the $product_id variable

If you have access to the object $product_id (as mentioned above, this is made possible using the hooks do_action or apply_filters), you must first determine the product object. Then you have to do the same as above:

// Get $product object from product ID

$product = wc_get_product( $product_id );

// Now you have access to (see above)...

$product->get_type();
$product->get_name();
// etc.
// etc.

Using the Order object or Order ID

To get the information inside an order, you need to loop through all the items in the order and then calculate and get the information needed from the $product object.

// Get $product object from $order / $order_id

$order = wc_get_order( $order_id );
$items = $order->get_items();

foreach ( $items as $item ) {

$product = $item->get_product();

// Now you have access to (see above)...

$product->get_type();
$product->get_name();
// etc.
// etc.

}

Using the Cart object

If you need the information inside the cart, you will need to do it similarly to the information inside the order, using a loop.

// Get $product object from Cart object

$cart = WC()->cart->get_cart();

foreach( $cart as $cart_item_key => $cart_item ){

$product = $cart_item['data'];

// Now you have access to (see above)...

$product->get_type();
$product->get_name();
// etc.
// etc.

}

Using the $post object

In some cases you only have access to the $post object. Here you can see how to get the information of the $product object with the $post object:

// Get $product object from $post object

$product = wc_get_product( $post );

// Now you have access to (see above)...

$product->get_type();
$product->get_name();
// etc.
// etc.

Conclusion

As you have seen, it is easy to get the information from a Woocommerce Product even if you do not have direct access to the $product object. Hopefully this post about Woocommerce Product Attribute Hooks was helpful, you can read more Arrow Design posts here:
