Affiliate marketing using WordPress

Adding price from your woo-commerce product page

There are a couple of things I decided to do today, to make my affiliate website look more appealing.

I am writing a top-10 washing machines page for my blog. I wanted to add a price column which is the price of the product from amazon.in on the date when the product is fetched.

A few of the things which I wanted to do is to ensure to add the price code to be added from my amazon product page.

For getting the amazon product onto my blog page I am using wzone importer and wp-automatic

I have enabled woocommerce on my website, with wzone and wp-automatic, I am fetching products from amazon.in and adding them as an affiliate product on my website.

There is no woo_commerce shortcode to just fetch the prices, the generate blocks also don’t provide the capability to add the same to the review page

So I created a child theme from my parent theme and added the below code in my functions.php page

function custom_price_shortcode_callback( $atts ) {

    $atts = shortcode_atts( array(
        'id' => null,
    ), $atts, 'product_price' );

    $html = '';

    if( intval( $atts['id'] ) > 0 && function_exists( 'wc_get_product' ) ){
        // Get an instance of the WC_Product object
        $product = wc_get_product( intval( $atts['id'] ) );

        // Get the product prices
        $price         = wc_get_price_to_display( $product, array( 'price' => $product->get_price() ) ); // Get the active price
        $regular_price = wc_get_price_to_display( $product, array( 'price' => $product->get_regular_price() ) ); // Get the regular price
        $sale_price    = wc_get_price_to_display( $product, array( 'price' => $product->get_sale_price() ) ); // Get the sale price

        // Your price CSS styles
        $style1 = 'style="font-size:40px;color:#e79a99;font-weight:bold;"';
        $style2 = 'style="font-size:25px;color:#e79a99"';

        // Formatting price settings (for the wc_price() function)
        $args = array(
            'ex_tax_label'       => false,
            'currency'           => 'INR',
            'decimal_separator'  => '.',
            'thousand_separator' => ' ',
            'decimals'           => 2,
            'price_format'       => '%1$s %2$s',
        );

        // Formatting html output
        if( ! empty( $sale_price ) && $sale_price != 0 && $sale_price < $regular_price )
            $html = "<del $style2>" . wc_price( $regular_price, $args ) . "</del> <ins $style1>" . wc_price( $sale_price, $args ) . "</ins>"; // Sale price is set
        else
            $html = "<ins $style1>" . wc_price( $price, $args ) . "</ins>"; // No sale price set
    }
    return $html;
 }
 add_shortcode( 'product_price', 'custom_price_shortcode_callback' );

Now adding this simple shortcode on my page, provides me with the quick price from the product page of my website.

USAGE (for example product ID 37):

[product_price id="37"]

This code is tested and works. You will get this:
