About this Solution

This snippet was requested by one of the members from the WooCommerce Facebook Snippets Community.

This snippet will automatically remove product prices when the product is ordered making it non-purchasable.

This snippet is useful if you are not making use of the stock management feature and require products to become non-purchasable only after they are ordered.

Keep in mind, the price is completely removed from the back-end, hiding both the price and add-to-cart button.
