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 WooCommerce is one of the most powerful and flexible ecommerce platforms on the market today, it was built for retail, and therefore it’s missing many important features for business buyers.
If you are setting up a wholesale store with WooCommerce, you will find many of these features fulfilled by small individual plugins. However, that approach comes with large disadvantages: reduced site performance caused by running a large number of plugins, and plugin conflicts that can lead to technical issues and errors.
One solution can be replacing several wholesale plugins with a single all-in-one WooCommerce wholesale suite solution. By doing that, you avoid cluttering the site with a large number of plugins, as well as avoid conflicts and errors, since all features are running under the same extension.
In this article let’s explore some of the best plugin suites on the market for wholesale sites, by looking at features, use cases, pricing and support.

If you’re setting up a wholesale store for your business or for your clients, WooCommerce is a great choice! It’s free, open-source, powerful, and growing in popularity.
However, many important wholesale functions are missing, and that’s particularly important when it comes to wholesale pricing. Let’s explore how we can set up complex pricing in WooCommerce, and in detail:
- Setting up different prices for different users
- Tiered pricing and pricing table
- Bulk pricing and discounts
- Discounts by quantity or order value
Each functionality can be added via a free or premium plugin or, if you’re familiar with PHP, even by code. Either way, this article will feature one of the many options available.

You’re looking to assign different unit prices based on the quantity added to Cart, for example from 1-100 price is $5, from 101-1000 price is $4.90 and from 1001 units ordered price becomes $4.75.
There are many “Dynamic Pricing” plugins out there (and the number #2 on this article would suit complex pricing rules and dynamic discounts), but this time I want to teach you a simple code to DIY WooCommerce quantity-based pricing.
As usual, comments and shares are much appreciated. Enjoy!

Case scenario: if you add a product ID to cart with a specific, you want another product automatically added to cart (Buy One Get One, or “BOGO”).
This second product should have price = 0 if you wish to completely give it away, or maybe a set sale price. It should also be set to “hidden” because maybe you want to hide this free product from the shop and only gift it when the first one is added to Cart.
Also, if you remove product 1, the gifted product should go away from the Cart too. So here follows the PHP snippet of course!
