When you run an WooCommerce online store, there is nothing better to encourage a sales then the perfect message in the perfect spot. It may be about free shipping on anything over $20. Or maybe you want to place an urgency to an order.
Of course, there are other messages you may need that aren’t invoking sales, such as closed support or ordering during a certain period of time. Or a strategically-placed teaser about an upcoming product.
And if all of this could be done with the help of scheduled messages as well as conditional logic, you can imagine the possibilities. That’s where the WooCommerce Advanced Messages plugin comes in.
WooCommerce Advanced Messages Plugin
- Add custom messages to different places in your shop
- Display notices at the top of your shop pages
- Use conditional logic to configure messages
- Smart labels for intelligent and automated messages
- Messages that can be scheduled for specific times
As I mentioned, I gave you a couple of examples of what this plugin could do for you. Custom messages can be placed in different spots around your online store, as well as at the top of the shop pages. Conditional logic brings even more power, including the ability to schedule your messages for a certain time.
Setting Up an Advance Message
Once installed, you will now find the option to add messages under WooCommerce > Settings > Messages. You will note that you can disable all messages at any time from showing which can be helpful if you are changing out several and setting a few up the very first time.
Creating a Message
When adding a new message, you are able to base it on conditions. Then you can choose where you want the message to show up.
As you see, you have several choices for conditions. With these, you can do just about anything around a specific page, dates, times, cart, user details and products. All of these conditions will give you amazing control over messages, including limited sales and other ways to get creative with your messages.
Also, you can choose the location of your message:
If we were to add a message, for the sake of this example, let’s say I want to give 30% off a specific product, in this instance, headphones, from Dec. 1 – Dec. 7. And I want a message to appear after they added it to their cart with a coupon code. This is what I would do:
Creating a Stream of Messages
Another useful way of creating messages is combining a couple of messages.
For example, you could create an option for shipping where the item is set to deliver the day after tomorrow. But then you could add an additional message that is timed to show immediately after the first message expires, to offer shipping by the next day.
I could go through tons of examples, such as purchase this within the next xx hours and you will get a bonus. The list could go on and on, but by simply looking at the conditions and placement, you get a good idea of just how powerful this plugin could be.
The other piece of this plugin is called smart labels, which is a way to display automated messages. An example they give in their documentation is:
For instance, if you want to display a message based on a calculation of the cart subtotal and how much more they would have to spend before reaching your $100,- free shipping limit. For this calculation, you would need to display “$100 – cart_subtotal”.
There are several smart labels available and you can see further examples over on the site if you click on the documentation.
So if you are looking for a cool way to manage messages to customers who visit your WooCommerce shop, you will find this plugin can give you that control.
