With the help of WordPress, running an online store has never been easier. Of course, we are talking about the most popular e-store plugin for WordPress which you have probably heard of – WooCommerce.
Even though it is relatively easy to install the plugin and set your first few items in the store, managing your online commerce is the ongoing process which has no expiration date. Among many things you should have in mind while running your online shop, discounts represent an important step to your success.
In this article, we’re going to show you some of the best plugins for WooCommerce which will help you deal with discounts.
Discount for Likes
We all know the power of Facebook and especially the power of likes on the popular social network. While teenagers are doing everything they can to get more likes for their new selfie, you might want to give people discount if they like your product. After you install the plugin, you’ll be able to place a “like” button next to each product in your WooCommerce store. You can set a number of likes until your product goes on sale and that might be a great way of harvesting the power of social networks. By using this plugin, you can turn your customers into vendors which will actually help increase traffic and eventually increase sales of your online shop.
WooCommerce Discounts Per Payment Method
Once you install this simple plugin, there isn’t much you should do to set up your discount. You can choose to create discount for direct bank transfer, cheque payment, cash on delivery, credit card and of course, Paypal. Enter the percentage or fixed number of discount and that’s it. After your customer proceeds to checkout he will be notified about your new discount. Easy as that.
WooCommerce Points and Rewards
This plugin acts as a loyalty program for you customers. After you install the plugin you will be able to set up reward system and give your customers points for each item they buy. For example, you may give customer 100 points for every dollar he spends in your store. After that loyal customer collects enough points, he can claim a reward presented as a discount for any future payment. It is easy to control points and discounts with this plugin and you can even reward a user by giving him points for registration or for a product review. WooCommerce Points and Rewards lets you track users’ points and actions and manage everything through the admin panel. The plugin is very customizable so besides changing the conversion rate, you are free to change the name of your points and call them tokens, coins, or anything you like.
WooCommerce Bulk Discount
As you can guess from the name of this plugin, it allows you to add a discount to your entire shopping cart. For example, you might want to incite your customers to buy more than one product in your store. One way of doing that is giving them discount if they buy, let’s say, 5 products. This plugin will let you do that and even allow you to add different discount for every new product they add in the cart. Another option is to give a flat discount which you can express in fixed amount – for example, if someone buys 10 products, they get $5 dollars discount. Everything is easy to set up on the configuration page, customers will clearly see the amount of discount they are entitled and in the end, you’ll have a happy customer who saved some money and who might return to your shop when he gets his new paycheck.
