Looking for a way to handle WooCommerce Scheduled Sales?
Want WooCommerce to offer daily deals or limited deals?
You’ve found the premiere solution. WooCommerce Scheduled Sales is a powerful add-on that lets you adjust various aspects of your product using flexible rules. Use it to built anticipation and a sense of urgency to buy, and to automatically control products in your store.
For example, let’s say you create a new product but don’t want it published on your site until 3 days from now. And when it is published you want the product price to be $50. And after the first 10 sales you want the price to go up by $10. And after 7 days you want the price to up again by 25%. Then, after a total of 100 are sold, or a certain date and time are reached, you want the product to become unavailable for purchase.
In another example, maybe you want to put a product on sale every Saturday at noon and have the sale end at 2pm. Or maybe you want to have a particular product only available on weekdays from 11am to 8pm, and on weekends from 11 to 10pm.
Scheduled Sales lets you do that and more. See the screenshots for a view of the rules that might be defined for a similar scenarios.
