How to display “You save” for sale price?

Take a look at the screenshot here below. This is what these snippets are doing for you.

Useful Woocommerce Single Product Page Hacks

So, in order to make it work like that use this snippet.

function you_save_text_for_product() {
	global $product;

	// works for Simple and Variable type
	$regular_price 	= get_post_meta( $product->get_id(), '_regular_price', true ); // 36.32
	$sale_price 	= get_post_meta( $product->get_id(), '_sale_price', true ); // 24.99
		
	if( !empty($sale_price) ) {
	
		$saved_amount 		= $regular_price - $sale_price;
		$currency_symbol 	= get_woocommerce_currency_symbol();

		$percentage = round( ( ( $regular_price - $sale_price ) / $regular_price ) * 100 );
		?>
			<p class="you_save_price">You save: <?php echo $currency_symbol .''. number_format($saved_amount, 2, '.', ''); ?></p>				
		<?php		
	} 
		
}
add_action( 'woocommerce_single_product_summary', 'you_save_text_for_product', 12 ); // hook priority

If you would like to customize the look of it then take a look at the you_save_price CCS class. Now go to Customizer >> Additional CSS and add this small pies of CSS to customize it.

        $percentage    = round( $saved_amount / $data['display_regular_price'] * 100 );

        $data['price_html'] .= '<p id="you_save_price">'. __("You Save") .': ' . wc_price($saved_amount) . ' ('.$percentage.'%)</p>';

    return $data;

            - Product should be out of stock if all children are out of stock.

        ?>
            <script type="text/javascript">

Themes: For the last couple of years I have two go-to themes which I use for every kind of projects. Those two themes are Blocksy theme and Kadence Theme. On this site and my Youtube channel you’ll see a lot of tutorials I have made about them. If you would like to get a 10% discount for both of them then:

Code Snippets manager: WPCodeBox allows you to add code snippets to your site. Also, it allows you to build and manage your WordPress Code Snippets library in the cloud. You can grab it with the 20% discount here (SAVE 20% Coupon: WPSH20).

Contact forms: There are hundreds of contact forms out there but Fluent Forms is the one I like the most. If you need a 20% discount then use this link (save 20% coupon is WPSH20).

Gutenberg add-ons: If I need a good Gutenberg blocks add-on then Kadence Blocks is the one I have used the most. You’ll get 10% discount with the coupon SIMPLEHACKS here.

Website migration: While building a website you probably need a good plugin that can help you with the migration, backups, restoration and staging sites. Well, WpVivid is the one I have used for the last couple of years. If you use this link along with the WPSH20 coupon you’ll get 20% discount.

Woocommerce extensions: There are a bunch of Woocommerce extensions that I really like but the one that stands really out is Advanced Dynamic Pricing. Once again, you’ll get a 20% discount if you use this link here (save 20% coupon is WPSH20)

Web Hosting: If you would like to have a really fast and easy to use managed cloud hosting, then I recommend Verpex Hosting (see my review here). Btw, this site is hosted in Verpex.)
