How To Alert Your Customers to a Product Price Drop in WooCommerce

There are a couple of advantages to alerting your customers on a product price drop. For those who visit your store, it builds trust simply because you are giving them an opportunity to save money. The other not-so-obvious benefit is using this to find that sweet spot for a price of a new product or one that isn’t selling. If you have flexibility in determining your prices, this is the perfect testing tool.

The Price Drop Notifier for WooCommerce

This extension works with both simple and variable products and will display on the single product page. The customer will be asked the price they are looking for, and when it drops to that price, they will be notified.

Settings

There are a few settings you can toggle on and off for who can see this and the visibility of it on out of stock items. You can further filter the users and the products that this will appear on.

Localization (label, title changes, etc.)

On both the subscribe form on the product page and what customers will find in their account, you can customize any of the titles, labels, buttons and placeholders.

If a customer submits a request for a particular price, this is the email they would get. (Note that I used the default email message but I could have customized this email.)

If the customer were to go into their account, they would also find it there.

As you can see, this simple extension can help you with one specific need. If you choose to use it for testing and tweaking your prices, be careful not to abuse your customer’s requests. Don’t collect it just for the sake of data, but keep them informed and take action when you decide upon a final price.
