WooCommerce pricing is an interesting topic as there are so many ways to apply different pricing and discounts in a store using default options available on WooCommerce and advanced dynamic pricing plugins. In this article, let us discuss how to set up WooCommerce table based pricing using a top-notch WooCommerce dynamic pricing plugin.
Customers should get to know about the offers and discounts in your store to make quick purchase decisions. There are so many ways to let the customers know about the offers and discounts in your store. You can trigger a notification through your eCommerce app, send mails and SMS.
When the customers are aware of these offers, they will definitely rush into your store and grab the products even though there is no urgency for them to purchase the specific products. But, sometimes, there is a chance that they may get confused about the best offer available for a product if multiple pricing is available for a product at the same time. So how can you let them know about all the available prices of a product in your WooCommerce store?
The solution is to display pricing tables on product pages.
What is the pricing table? How do they influence customers to make purchase decisions?
Pricing tables or table based pricing is simply displaying all available prices of a product and the quantity required to purchase for availing the offers in a tabular form. When you see a list of available offers and the quantity required you are required to purchase to apply for it, you would definitely buy extra products to be eligible for the offer.
When you consider this from the shop owner’s perception, this will boost the sales and ROI in a small period of time.
