    This is excellent… Except that it didn’t work.

      Hello h8maus,

      We have tested wc_add_notice function on our end. It’s working fine. You can print three different notices for your product. We are also sharing a code snippet as an example for you.

    Hi, is it possible to add a custom notice_type?
    I tried:
    1. i copied woocommerce/templates/notices/success.php into mytheme/woocommerce/notices/warning.php
    2. changed the css class to woocommerce-warning
    3. added some CSS to customize the colors
    4. added ‘woocommerce_notice_types’ filter to add ‘warning’ types to the print list
    … and it’s working!
    BUT it behave in a slighty different way than other notice_types: when updating cart my “warning” message is not updated, where ‘error’, ‘success’ and ‘notice’ types are updated.

    Any ideas?

    This also worked for me, the message appears on the /shop page above the product loop.

    This ‘wp_print_notice’ on the other hand provides the same notice but where ever you happen to run the code:
    wc_print_notice( $message, $notice_type = ‘success’ );
