To process the user generated price in WooCommerce, you can create a custom pricing field on your product page and collect the price entered by the user. Here's a step-by-step guide on how to do this:

  1. Add a custom pricing field:
  • You can use a plugin like Advanced Custom Fields to create a custom field for the user-generated price. Install and activate the plugin, then go to Custom Fields > Add New to create a new custom field.
  • Set the field type to "Number" or "Text" to allow users to enter the price.
  • Add the custom field to your product page using the shortcode provided by the Advanced Custom Fields plugin.
  1. Update the product price:
  • To update the product price based on the user-generated price, you can use a custom function in your theme's functions.php file.
  • Add a function that hooks into the 'woocommerce_product_get_price' filter to retrieve the user-generated price and update the product price.
  • Use the get_field() function provided by Advanced Custom Fields to get the value of the custom pricing field.
  • Update the product price based on the user-entered price.
  1. Display the updated price:
  • Make sure to display the updated price on the product page and cart page so that users can see the price they entered.
  • You can use the 'woocommerce_get_price_html' filter to modify the displayed price on the product page.
  • Add a custom template to display the updated price in the cart page.


By following these steps, you'll be able to process the user-generated price in WooCommerce and update the product price based on the price entered by the user.
