Need to sell precious metals and automatically adjust metal prices?
Need to price your products based on their content of gold, silver, platinum or palladium?
WooCommerce Precious Metals gets the job done fast and efficiently by automatically downloaded the current precious metal spot prices and adjusting the retail prices of your metal products. This greatly reduces your store pricing management and helps to protect against underpricing or overpricing your products.
The plugin works for gold prices, silver prices, platinum prices, and palladium prices, and can be used with any form of metal sales, including coins, bars, bullion, jewellery, plated items, and more.
Here’s how it works: You create products, set the markup amount for each product, and assign the product to specific metal-related categories. With that done, the plugin automatically sets your retail prices based on the markup amount you define.
For example, lets say you’re selling 1 ounce US Gold Eagles, and you want the price of each coin to be spot price plus $50. Simply set your markup amount to 50 and you’re done. Or maybe you want to mark up the price by 10%. No problem, just set your markup amount to 10% and you’re done.
- Set the metal spot pricing update interval to any interval you prefer
- Set your markup as a percentage of spot price or a flat amount to be added to the spot price
- Optionally add a second markup if you need to
- Set your metal weight in grams or a troy weight ( such ounces, pounds, or kilograms ), or as pennyweight
- Optionally define the metal purity in a product to help calculate prices
- Optionally set a minimum product price in case metal prices fall too low
- Optionally close your store when the London markets are closed so that no purchases can be made
- Optionally cancel unpaid orders after any number of minutes
- Optionally set a checkout page timeout so that if the contents of the cart isn’t paid for in a certain amount of time then the cart expires
- Supports simple products, variable products, and grouped products
- Display current metal spot prices in grams or ounces anywhere on your site using simple shortcodes
- Display current metal spot prices in grams or ounces on your site using the included widget
