If you’re shipping products subject to Proposition 65 rules to addresses in California you’ll need to display text accordingly upon checkout. Surprisingly as of February 2021 we could find no working code or plugin that correctly displayed a message for an individual state.
We created the below code to display a WooCommerce warning message when shipping to CA addresses. The code will check for the “Ship to a different address” checkbox and act accordingly. It also handles saved addresses on logged in accounts.
We recommend adding this code to a custom site functionality plugin, but it can also be added to a child theme’s functions.php file.
Partially based on code from emartmedia.com.
Hi, I’ve tried adding this snippet 4 times but it never appears no matter how many times I change the cart to an address California?
Hi Stavros – We’ve tested with current WooCommerce versions and it’s still working fine. Perhaps a caching issue for you?
Hello! I am looking at your Prop 65 Code for Woocommerce, and it appears that the warning does not currently pop up when I select a billing state that is not CA and the select “Ship to a Different Address” then enter a CA address.
It does show up if I refresh the page with the addresses filled out, and it does work just fine for Billing State, just not initially. We definitely need it to show up for both if possible. Any ideas?
Thanks in advance for your help!
Hi Nathan – I just tested both scenarios you described on a clean WooCommerce install and it works for both.
