Need to sell precious metals and automatically adjust metal prices?
WooCommerce Precious Metals gets the job done fast and effeciently 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, silver, platinum, and palladium pricing and can be used with any form of metal sales, including coins, bars, bullion, and even jewelery.
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.
It’s really that easy. But that’s not all this plugin can do! Look at this powerful features that help guard against you losing money and sales:
- Set the metal pricing update interval to any interval you prefer
- 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
Plus, if you use “Close Store” feature you can define a custom page that a shopper is redirected to when your store is closed. Likewise, if you use the “Checkout Timeout” feature, you can define a custom page that a shopper is redirected to when their cart expires.
