Code Snippet: Display WooCommerce highest variable product price only

Last Updated on: 13th July 2018, 02:24 pm

Here is a code snippet that displays the highest price only for WooCommerce variable products instead of the default price range.

add_filter( 'woocommerce_variable_sale_price_html', 'con_show_max_variation_price_only', 10, 2 );
add_filter( 'woocommerce_variable_price_html', 'con_show_max_variation_price_only', 10, 2 );
function con_show_max_variation_price_only( $price, $product ) {
// Main Variation Price
$prices = array( $product->get_variation_price( 'max', true ), $product->get_variation_price( 'min', true ) );

$price = $prices[0] !== $prices[1] ? sprintf( __( '%1$s', 'woocommerce' ), wc_price( $prices[0] ) ) : wc_price( $prices[0] );
// Sale Variation Price
$prices = array( $product->get_variation_regular_price( 'max', true ), $product->get_variation_regular_price( 'min', true ) );
sort( $prices );

$saleprice = $prices[0] !== $prices[1] ? sprintf( __( '%1$s', 'woocommerce' ), wc_price( $prices[0] ) ) : wc_price( $prices[0] );

if ( $price !== $saleprice ) {
    $price = '<span style="display:none;">' . $saleprice . '</span> <ins>' . $price . '</ins>';
    return $price;

  1. This is great! Do you know how I could display the variable pricing (or the highest price, rather than the lowest) on my Shop page? I’m ok w/ the variable pricing showing on the product page, but I want it to also show up on the shop page.

    If it’s helpful, I’m using the Weston theme. See theme shop here:

    Do you have any guidance?

    Thank you!!

      Hi Molly,

      Glad you like the snippet!
      The code should also alter the display at `/shop/` unless your active theme tampers with the output. I just tried on my local install and it works ok there.
      Additionally it seems to me that is being correctly altered. Since you have set sale prices, it correctly falls back to the highest sale price.
      When you say “but I want it to also show up on the shop page.” – which product exactly differs in what way, that makes you say that?

      Kind regards,

  2. Hi,

    This is great, thank you for the snippet. How could I display the minimum instead of the maximum with your snippet ?

    Also, when the user changes variations, the variation price also shows on the product page. Is there a way to replace the maximum price of your snippet with the variation price once variations have been chosen ?

    Thank you.

      Hi Malcolm,

      Thank you for your feedback. I haven’t looked at the snippet for a while, but the modifications sound feasible. At the moment I am busy with other things, but I might give it a shot.
