Translate and Customize Autoship Text

Customizing Autoship Text

You can use Wordpress to customize the Autoship text to better fit your brand and site experience using filters.  For example, you may want to change the text "Autoship" - that appears on the Product page and Cart page - to "Subscribe".

In the following code snippet example, we use a filter within the Autoship Cloud plugin to change the term "Autoship" to "Subscribe" and when there is a price savings, use the term "Subscribe and Save".  This logic is added to the active Wordpress theme's functions.php to apply the change.

* Change Product Page and Cart Autoship labels
* @param string $label The current option label.
* @param string $option_type if this is the autoship radio or 'no' if this is the one time purchase
* @param bool $savings if there is a savings associated with autoship else false.
* @param WC_Product $product The current product object.
* @return string the filtered label
function xx_rename_autoship( $label, $option_type, $savings, $product ){

  if ( 'yes' == $option_type ){

    return $savings ? __('Subscribe and Save') : __('Subscribe');

  } else {

    return __('Purchase Only Once');


add_filter('autoship_radio_label', 'xx_rename_autoship', 10, 4 );
