WooCommerce Pre-sale, Time offer & Expiring System
WooCommerce Pres-sales, Time offers & Expiring System (WCPS) is a powerful tool that adds to WooCommerce many new features to plan Pre-sales or Time limited offers for all products!
HOW DOES IT WORK?
The idea behind the plugin is to have a tool by which the shop admin can configure special price for items according to a selected period. This period could be a pre-sale period in which offer a few amout of items to a special price or a special offer for a weekend or seasonal offer.
With WCPS plugin you can do all of that. Further more you can also limit the offer period non only by date, but also using a “Goal threshold” value.
WCPS is a very flexible tool that lets the shop admin to configure many “end strategies”. By WCPS you can choose to make an item unavaiable or switch to its regular price by:
- End date: The item can will be turned back to its regular price or made unavailable for purchasing (setted as ‘Draft).
- Threshold limit: The item price will turn to its regular price or will be unavailable (setted as ‘Draft’) once reached the Goal threshold.
- Threshold limit check only at expiring date: Once the expiring date is reached, item price will switch to its regular price/swithced. to unavailable (setted as ‘Draft’) if the Goal threshold has been reached.
DEPOSIT AND COUPON DEDUCTION SYSTEM
Would you like to let your customers to deposit only a small amount and let them pay after the pre-sale/time offer period? With WCPS now you can do that!
Enabling the “Deposit with coupon deduction” option, the system after checkout will generate one time usage coupon codes for every item in the order with that option enabled. Coupons codes are inlcuded directly in the “New Order Email” sent to the Customer. The customer can be use this codes to buy the items deducting what he already paid.
Coupons are manageble directly in the “WooCommerce” -> “Coupon” Area. On order delete, all the associated coupons will be deleted too.
PRODUCT AUTOMATIC PUBLISHING AT START DATE
Would you like to plan a pre-sale or time-offer for a ‘Draft’ product? would you like to automatic publish the product once the start date comes? with WCPS you can! you have only to set a starting date and save the product as “Draft”, the plugin will automatically publish the product at the selected starting date!
LIMIT PURCHASES PER ORDER, PER CUSTOMER AND/OR ONLY FOR WHO BOUGTH DURING PRE-SALE/TIME OFFER PERIOD
Another useful feature is the purchase limit option. For each product, you can choose to limit purchasable quantities per order or per customer (this second option works only if gust users are disabled).
For the customer limit, the plugins remebers how many quantities the customer has bought in his past orders dening him to purchase more that the limit you have setted.
Optionally you can also enabling the “Who bought” restriction that will let to purchase the product only if the customer has already bought it during the pre-sale/time offer period.
CUSTOM MESSAGES, CUSTOM ADD TO CART LABEL AND COUNTDOWN TIMERS
You can configure to display custom messages in the shop page after every item and/or in the single product page and custo “Add to cart” label. You can also choose to display countdown timer to start/end date.
NOTE: the plugin uses the change_cart_button_text,after_description_shop_loop_item and after_description_product_page_item to implement these feature. All the good themes uses this actions during shop and single product rendering, but could happen that a theme is not using them so my plugin cannot hook to to add custom texts and countdowns.
CURRENT SALES PROGESS BAR
Do you want to let you customers to see the sales progress for every item (shop page and product page)? WCPS lets you to display a nice visual progress bar with an optiona label to dispay the percentage of current sales on current goal. Colors fully configurable!
