Yarn Gate sell premium yarns and wools for wholesale and trade. They use our WooCommerce Product Table and WooCommerce Quick View Pro plugins to list wholesale products in a table, with ‘Select color’ buttons that open up a quick view lightbox.
Logged in trade users can select colors from the quick view lightbox and add to the cart. They then return to the list of yarns, where they can continue adding more products to their order. This is much more user-friendly than the standard WooCommerce grid layout because wholesale customers can see more products per page, and purchase color variations without being taken to a separate page for each item. This speeds up the buying process and maximises sales.
Yarn Gate have achieved this fantastic setup by combining the following plugins:
- WooCommerce – the world’s leading e-commerce plugin, used to add their products and take care of shipping etc.
- WooCommerce Product Table – lists the products in a wholesale-friendly table layout.
- WooCommerce Quick View Pro – this Woocommerce wholesale quick view plugin adds lightbox popups to speed up the buying process.
- WooCommerce Variation Swatches and Photos – allows customers to click on a color to select a variation in the quick view lightbox.
As a WooCommerce wholesale shop, they also wanted to hide the prices from logged out users. You can do this using a plugin such as Hide Price Until Login.
