Have you ever wondered how you can add the prices next to your variations in Woocommerce?  Perhaps you are using our Woocommerce Radio Buttons Plugin and now you just want to display the price next to each option so users do not have to click each variation to find its price.


We are going to show you how you can add prices next to EACH variation in Woocommerce by a little snippet that you are going to want to add to your themes functions.php file.  Simply copy the snippet below and place it in your theme and you should be golden.


//Add prices to variations
add_filter( 'woocommerce_variation_option_name', 'display_price_in_variation_option_name' );

function display_price_in_variation_option_name( $term ) {
global $wpdb, $product;

$result = $wpdb->get_col( "SELECT slug FROM {$wpdb->prefix}terms WHERE name = '$term'" );

$term_slug = ( !empty( $result ) ) ? $result[0] : $term;

$query = "SELECT postmeta.post_id AS product_id
FROM {$wpdb->prefix}postmeta AS postmeta
LEFT JOIN {$wpdb->prefix}posts AS products ON ( products.ID = postmeta.post_id )
WHERE postmeta.meta_key LIKE 'attribute_%'
AND postmeta.meta_value = '$term_slug'
AND products.post_parent = $product->id";

$variation_id = $wpdb->get_col( $query );

$parent = wp_get_post_parent_id( $variation_id[0] );

if ( $parent > 0 ) {
$_product = new WC_Product_Variation( $variation_id[0] );

//this is where you can actually customize how the price is displayed
return $term . ' (' . woocommerce_price( $_product->get_price() ) . ')';
return $term;


Once you have copied and pasted that you just hit the save button and you should be ready to roll! Major thanks to Ratnakar for sharing this 😉

    This is exactly what I needed. A client wanted this feature. It works great on most of her product lines, except for the “bundle” products where items are combined, and in that case a price only shows up next to one product, but none of the other product bundles do and it has code around it like this: $40.00. Any idea why this would happen just to the bundle products?

      Obviously code doesn’t appear in these comments. There is a “span” tag around the price when it shows up next to the one bundle item that shows a price. Just to clarify.
