In WooCommerce you are able to set a sale price, but that’s it. There really is no control over running a sale based on specific criteria, such as bulk pricing, select discounts, a sale on a category or end scheduling a sales. But with the Advanced Pricing plugin, you can create pricing rules based on specific customers or products.
The WooCommerce Advanced Pricing Plugin
Over on the ShopPlugins site, they some really great use cases to give you an idea of just how powerful this plugin is. So to help you understand it more, I am going to take the liberty to use them here with some minor tweaks.
- Easily put up a storewide discount: celebrating your 10 years in business and giving a 25% discount
- Buy 1 frame $10, 2-5 frames get 5% off, 5-10 frame get 10% off
- User role ‘Wholesale’: get a 25% discount by default store wide
- A different price is set on a per-product level for the user role ‘Wholesale’
- Give a 25% discount on all products in a specific product category
- Products over 90 days added to your site with a 5% price reduction
- Date, time, day-specific discounts, such as 20% off on Saturdays or 15% during the week before Valentines Day
Creating Bulk Pricing for a Single Product in WooCommerce
Here you will see that I can add different ranges for my bulk price discount. I can use percentage and flat discounts, a flat amount, or even adding an amount by percentage or flat rate.
Role Based Pricing
You can also offer these pricing discounts based on the role. For example, it could be for customers only. Or if you have a membership site, for specific levels of members. As you can see here, since this is on my demo site, I have quite a few roles to choose from. But this makes it very flexible to give specific customers, visitors or readers a specific discount.
And then you have custom pricing, where you can use several conditions for other advanced pricing. Of course, the options will change in the third field depending on what you choose in the first one.
Applying Bulk Prices to Multiple Items
Up till now I was showing you the options based on specific products. But you can set global rules to apply to as many products as you want. As you can see, there are several conditions you can set based on the Price Action.
So as you can see, this gives you a wide range of customizations that you can do to your pricing without having to mess with the code. So check out the WooCommerce Advanced Pricing plugin so you can offer bulk and other advanced pricing option to your customers or wholesalers.
