A lot of sites use WooCommerce. A lot of sites use Gravity Forms.And I’m guessing a lot of sites use both. But you might not be taking advantage of this powerful combo unless you are already using the WooCommerce Gravity Forms Product Add-Ons.
WooCommerce Gravity Forms Product Add-Ons
I have used this add-on myself off and on over the years, and it has come in real handy for many of my needs. With the ability to link any product in WooCommerce to Gravity Form and take advantage of pricing fields, conditional logic, user input prices and several other cool options, it covers a lot of special add-ons you might need for any product or service you are selling.
Many of what you might come up with are extras or cross-sells. Sure there are other plugins that do this, but if you are using WooCommerce and Gravity Forms, you should take advantage of it.
Let me share with you two examples of how you might use these two together.
Additional Product Information Needed
You have a product that you sell. It’s unique as you need specific information from the customer. An example of this would be a gift basket. You sell various gift baskets and you offer to add a custom message to the basket.
So first I create a form in Gravity Forms for the single line. I have added a maximum of 200 characters and chose small for the field size. (I would probably also want to change the notification of this part of the form to be copied to whoever was in charge of creating these messages).
Now I would go to my product and add this form. As you can see I could have easily added a fee as well to this, but for this example, let’s say it is included.
When we view the product, we now see it added here.
And when added to the cart, the customer will see the message there.
With all the various fields that are available with Gravity Forms, you can imagine the additional needed information you could collect with any product.
Adding Warranty Options
Let’s say that you have a product that comes with the typical 1-year warranty, but you would like to offer additional warranties at a price.
In Gravity Forms, you would first add a product, leave it blank and make sure it is hidden. You will not be able to add the options field next if you don’t do this.
Then you would add an options field with the warranties and the prices.
Lastly, since Gravity Forms requires a total filed for this to work, you will add that and hide it as well.
Now we would add this form to our product as we did before with the other example.
Now we will find these options on the product page.
It will also show on the cart page, but for this example, you will see it is added on the checkout page as well.
As you can see from these two examples, there is a lot you can add to your products, or you could even create a custom package with the various options.
If you use WooCommerce and Gravity Forms, I would certainly consider the WooCommerce Gravity Forms Product Add-Ons Extension to give you even more options and control over anything you sell online.
