Add Text under Single Product Short Description in Woocommerce

I want to add some Global Text immediately under the Product Short Description in Woo Commerce, before the product options.

I can change the file directly, but of course as soon as it updates it gets over written.

Is there another way of doing this?

Answer

Update 2: There is 3 different ways, using hooks:

1) Adding your custom text at the end of the short description content, (not for variable products):

add_filter( 'woocommerce_short_description', 'add_text_after_excerpt_single_product', 20, 1 );
function add_text_after_excerpt_single_product( $post_excerpt ){
    if ( ! $short_description )
        return;

    // Your custom text
    $post_excerpt .= '<ul class="fancy-bullet-points red">
    <li>Current Delivery Times: Pink Equine - 4 - 6 Weeks, all other products 4 Weeks</li>
    </ul>';

    return $post_excerpt;
}

Important – For variable products:
I found that there is bug like in When using the filter woocommerce_short_descriptionthat is apparently also active for the product variation description, and it should not (as this is not documented in developers documentation)The solution is below:

2) Adding your custom text at the end of the short description content, for all product types:

add_action( 'woocommerce_single_product_summary', 'custom_single_product_summary', 2 );
function custom_single_product_summary(){
    global $product;

    remove_action( 'woocommerce_single_product_summary', 'woocommerce_template_single_excerpt', 20 );
    add_action( 'woocommerce_single_product_summary', 'custom_single_excerpt', 20 );
}

function custom_single_excerpt(){
    global $post, $product;

    $short_description = apply_filters( 'woocommerce_short_description', $post->post_excerpt );

    if ( ! $short_description )
        return;

    // The custom text
    $custom_text = '<ul class="fancy-bullet-points red">
    <li>Current Delivery Times: Pink Equine - 4 - 6 Weeks, all other products 4 Weeks</li>
    </ul>';

    ?>
    <div class="woocommerce-product-details__short-description">
        <?php echo $short_description . $custom_text; // WPCS: XSS ok. ?>
    </div>
    <?php
}

3) Adding your custom text after the short description:

add_action( 'woocommerce_before_single_product', 'add_text_after_excerpt_single_product', 25 );
function add_text_after_excerpt_single_product(){
    global $product;

    // Output your custom text
    echo '<ul class="fancy-bullet-points red">
    <li>Current Delivery Times: Pink Equine - 4 - 6 Weeks, all other products 4 Weeks</li>
    </ul>';
}

Code goes in function.php file of your active child theme (or active theme). Tested and works.
