Black Friday and Cyber Monday (BFCM) are just around the corner. Is your WooCommerce site prepared? I hope so!
While time is running out, there are a number of things you can do to get ready. In this post, we’ll cover eight of the most important ones.
The potential of a Black Friday / Cyber Monday deal shouldn’t be underestimated. Indeed, many eCommerce sites report that a significant percentage of their annual revenue comes from sales during this brief period of time.
Additionally, it’s important to remember that nearly all businesses run a BFCM sale, which means that anyone who doesn’t have an offer is missing out.
Before we jump into the eight important things you can do, a final note: failing to prepare may cost you a serious amount of missed revenue. Amazon, for example, stands to lose $13.22 million per hour of downtime! While that’s an extreme example, it is a reminder that downtime should be avoided as much as possible during once-a-year sales events.

If you run WooCommerce store promotions, this little snippet will help you with that. For example, how to run a “Buy 2 products, get one half off” or a “Buy 3 products, get the cheapest one for free” campaign?
The trick behind this workaround is to find the cheapest item by looping through the cart, and then to set its price so that it’s lower than the regular price. Enjoy!

Offering promotions is a great way to attract customers and increase sales in your online store. Some promotion strategies that have proven effective are the Buy One Get One Free (BOGO), Buy X Get Y, and WooCommerce dynamic pricing.
Taking this into account, you may want to offer reduced prices to your users in these various circumstances:
- Run a flash sale for a limited time.
- Encourage your customers to buy specific products in a clearance sale.
- Offer product bundles to big spenders.
- Add free shipping when someone makes a bulk purchase.
- Automatically add gift items as part of your store’s loyalty program.
Without dedicated plugins, these strategies might be utterly difficult to conduct. To save yourself from the coding hassle, you should pick a WooCommerce dynamic pricing plugin to quickly get it up and running.
In this blog post, we will discuss how to create a BOGO promotion, Buy X Get Y, and dynamic pricing rules in WooCommerce based on user conditions. And it requires no coding knowledge. Let’s dive in.

We all want to grow our WooCommerce store sales but creating offers for thousands of products is a nightmare.
What if I said you can grow sales on autopilot and without pouring sweat and money into your business?
This post covers how you can set up automated WooCommerce upsells, discounts, order bumps and other offers – so that you can focus on other aspects of your business while your website does its magic.
Select from ready-made offers, run them on your sites, count your sales, relax.
Without further delays, let’s get started.

Let’s say you want to apply a 10% discount on a WooCommerce product. Its original price is $79.56. You go to the “Edit Product” page, go to the “Sale Price” input field, and enter ( $79.56 – 10% ) = $71.63. This is great as you can set the sale price, but this forces you to do some math and waste time.
What if there were a custom select dropdown, where you could directly define a fixed discount e.g. 10% or 25%, without having to calculate the final price?
Well, in today’s tutorial, we’ll see how we can display a dropdown in the Product Edit page, and at the same time how to edit the frontend price once a discount value is selected, so that you don’t need to worry about that manual sale price calculation. Enjoy!

Since… today, Business Bloomer online courses are affordable for everyone.
It’s unfortunate that digital products (such as our WooCommerce online courses) are priced in USD dollars but there is no adjustment for less privileged countries.
This is a pity because content should be accessible to ALL WooCommerce developers around the world, no matter their income level. I receive dozens of emails per month from amazing people who can’t really afford a USD 397 course because they make that amount of money in 4 months if they’re lucky.
So, let’s change this. Here comes Purchasing Power Parity (PPP) to the rescue.
PPP is a special metric that tells us the real “purchasing power” of a given country. Take a basket of identical goods, pay in your local currency in your own country; purchase the same items in USD in the United States. Compare that difference to the actual exchange rate. Now you really have an idea of how much a country can afford to pay for that basket of goods.
Let’s talk in plain English. Are you from India? You may get up to 75% off our online courses. Are you from South Africa? Maybe a 59% discount! Are you from Argentina? 61% off on average. Are you from Norway? No discount, sorry (it seems you do better than the US). And so on…
In this post, I’ll go through a quick PPP math example to give you some context, and then I’ll tell you how I implemented PPP discounts in this same WooCommerce website.
Want to help me test the PPP discount functionality which is currently in beta? Add a course to cart e.g. CustomizeWoo PRO, select your billing country at checkout, and leave a comment below with the discount you got, if any.

While as a WooCommerce store owner, you keep looking for ways to increase your store’s sales and revenue – the same way, your customers also consistently look for opportunities to save money when purchasing online.
And in this situation, offering coupons and discounts acts as a win-win for your business and customers.
Statistics suggest that 51% of U.S. buyers search for coupons online before making an online purchase, and over 80% of millennials use coupon codes when shopping online.
Every online shopper loves a good deal. You can tap into this consumer behavior to attract buyers and increase sales through coupons on your WooCommerce store.
So, in this article, we see the top WooCommerce coupon plugins you can use. But first, let’s learn more about the benefits of offering coupons to your customers.

Offering discounts is a powerful, time-tested strategy to entice customers and boost sales.
That’s because customers always appreciate a good deal – and helping them save money on products/services they’re interested in is a sure-fire technique to attract them. In fact, nearly 90% of shoppers used a coupon code last year, which shows how much customers value discounts.
Discounts can also help you bring more traffic to your website, encourage shoppers to buy more, and thus, increase sales and revenue. So, they’re a win for both sides.
The good news is WooCommerce offers a solid coupon functionality by default to help you create discounts on your store.
While it’s great to get started, WooCommerce Discount plugins can come in handy for more advanced features like bulk-generating coupons, restricting discounts to specific users, or creating deals like Buy One Get One (BOGO).
This article will explore some plugins that can help you implement a discount strategy on your store in just a few clicks and “woo” your customers.
Let’s dive in!

This is a nice snippet to let users know what the original cart amount was by slashing the cart subtotal and showing the cart subtotal after discounts on the same line (Cart totals > subtotal).
You can then hide the coupon code line if you wish!
