Hide Marketplace Suggestions in WooCommerce

Since version 3.6 WooCommerce started to recommend the extensions from woocommerce.com on its admin screens. I really hope that it will be cut off in the next versions, but if it doesn’t, you can always use this tutorial to remove them.

Hide get more options tab from the Product data metabox

The extension suggestions are also appeared on:

For now the suggestions are only displayed for locales: en_AU, en_CA, en_GB, en_NZ, en_US and en_ZA.

Why WooCommerce developers community don’t like this new feature ads? Please look at the screenshot above. Do you a plugin “One Page Checkout” there? But I also have a one page checkout plugin, why another one is recommended in WooCommerce admin?

add_filter( 'woocommerce_allow_marketplace_suggestions', '__return_false' );
