You can use a shortcode or block in order to display the WooCommerce products on sale. However, what if you wanted a proper “product category” called “Sale” – and where you didn’t need to manually assign this category to each product?
Basically, how do we display all the discounted products in a custom category called “Sale”, without doing any manual work?
Here’s a super quick tutorial. Enjoy!

There are times when the edit product page settings are not enough. Yes, you usually set regular and sale price via the price fields under “Product Data”; however sometimes you may have to override those prices via code, because you’re running a special promotion, you don’t want to manually change thousands of prices or maybe you need to show different values to logged in customers only.
Either way, “setting” the product price programmatically consists of two distinct operations. First, you need to change the “display” of the product price on single and loop pages; second, you actually need to set a “cart item” price, because the previous code does not really alter price values.
As usual, easier coded than said, so let’s see how it’s done. Enjoy!

B2C WooCommerce stores can also have a B2B section. Wholesalers can offer different prices based on different criteria. Subscription stores can offer lower prices to current members.
Either way, setting different WooCommerce prices for different users (“based on user role”) is not that difficult. All you need is a plugin (or a stack of plugins, depending on your custom requirements), and you can immediately show different prices if the logged in user has a specific role or “capability”, as well as targeting active memberships, active subscriptions or other criteria.
If you want to learn more about user roles and capabilities, I suggest to take a look at the WordPress documentation: https://codex.wordpress.org/Roles_and_Capabilities – you’ll know WordPress has 6 default roles (administrator, editor, etc.) and that WooCommerce adds another one (customer). Other plugins can set additional roles – for example https://wordpress.org/plugins/members/ by Justin Tadlock, a very popular WordPress developer.
So, while “targeting” user roles is quite easy, the only difficult part is to choose the right “user role based pricing” product. As usual, when picking a plugin, you always need to consider its functionalities as well as the quality of its support team, long-term reliability, code cleanliness, frequent updates and total number of sales.
Today, we’ll take a look at the plugins I recommend, together with their pros and cons. If you use different stacks or custom functionalities, feel free to interact via the comments.

Many retailers use this price tag strategy quite successfully. And displaying the amount of savings can increase your ecommerce store conversion rate as well 🙂
So, turning simple product default pricing from “
$30 $20″ to “Was $30 – Now $20 – Save $10” is quite easy. With a little CSS you can also style the display and customize it according to your brand guidelines! Continue reading WooCommerce: Display Prices as “Was $$$ – Now $$$ – Save $$$”
I’m pretty sure that during one of those Black Friday sales all you wanted to do was to apply a bulk discount to your WooCommerce products without having to generate a coupon code.
Let’s not forget that despite coupons are trackable and you can assess your marketing efforts with their usage statistics, requiring the user to take one additional step at checkout (entering the correct coupon code) reduces your sales conversion rate (the same applies with useless checkout fields by the way – less work to do, higher conversion rate).
In today’s post, we’ll see what are the 3 options I recommend in order to apply bulk store discounts. It pretty much depends on your product types (simple vs variable for example) and whether you want to do this via the settings or with a little bit of PHP.
