Replace displayed price by a text for out of stock WooCommerce products

Rate this post

I’m not an expert, but I need to change price stroke for “out of stoke” products in my Woocommerce product page.

  1. I found how change price to “SOLD” (and it’s work)
//Change price to 'sold'
add_filter('woocommerce_product_get_price','change_price_regular_member', woocommerce_currency_symbols, 10, 2 );

function change_price_regular_member($price, $product)
        if (!$product->is_in_stock())
            $price = "SOLD";
        return $price;
  1. I try to hide my currency symbol (change $SOLD to SOLD)
add_filter('woocommerce_currency_symbol', 'change_existing_currency_symbol', 10, 2);
function change_existing_currency_symbol($currency_symbol, $currency) {
    global $post, $product;

    if (!$product->is_in_stock() ) {
        switch( $currency ) {
             case 'USD': $currency_symbol = ''; 
    return $currency_symbol; 

and it doesn’t work

Can you help me? what’s wrong?



Use instead woocommerce_get_price_html hook as follows (that will replace the formatted displayed price and currency):

add_filter('woocommerce_get_price_html', 'change_sold_out_product_price_html', 100, 2 );
function change_sold_out_product_price_html( $price_html, $product ) {
    if ( ! $product->is_in_stock() ) {
        $price_html = __("SOLD", "woocommerce");
    return $price_html;

Code goes in functions.php file of the active child theme (or active theme). it should better work.

Addition related to your comment:

For your 2nd code snippet, try the following instead:

add_filter('woocommerce_currency_symbol', 'change_existing_currency_symbol', 10, 2);
function change_existing_currency_symbol( $currency_symbol, $currency ) {
    $product = wc_get_product( get_the_ID() );

    if ( is_a( $product, 'WC_Product' ) && $currency === 'USD' && ! $product->is_in_stock() ) {
        $currency_symbol = ''; 

    return $currency_symbol; 

It should works. If you want to make it work for all currencies when product is out of stock remove && $currency === 'USD' from the IF statement
