Add WooCommerce Bulk Discount Pricing to Your Product Tables
Lots of people ask us which WooCommerce bulk discount plugins work with our Product Table plugin. Today we’ve been testing the WooCommerce Bulk Discount plugin. We’re pleased to announce that it works beautifully with WooCommerce Product Table.
Here are all the details of how you can use bulk discounts with your own product tables. You can also see it in action on our demo page.
A request: It’s likely that other WooCommerce volume discount plugins work similarly with the product tables. Please get in touch if you’re using other bulk discount tools with WooCommerce Product Table, and we’d love to include them in this article.
How does WooCommerce bulk discount work with the product table?
If you’re using the WooCommerce Bulk Discount plugin with WooCommerce Product Table, then customers can select a quantity from the table and add products to the cart. The appropriate volume-based discount will be correctly added to the cart.
If your product table page has a sidebar, then you can add the WooCommerce Cart widget. When people add products to the cart, the correct volume discount will be shown in the Cart widget. This reassures customers that the volume discounts are working.
If there’s no Cart widget on the page, then customers can see the discount when they click through to the cart and checkout.
Can I list the bulk discount prices in the product table?
If your product table includes a Price column then this will always show the price for 1 item. You can increase your sales by adding a column which lists the WooCommerce bulk discount prices. This subtly encourages people to buy higher quantities, convincing them that they’re getting better value.
You can do this as follows:
- Use the free Advanced Custom Fields plugin to add a ‘Volume Discount’ custom field to the ‘Products’ post type.
- This field will now appear on the Add/Edit screen for each product. Add the discount details here.
- Finally, add the custom field as an extra column in your WooCommerce product table. Please see the instructions for adding a custom field column.
As you can see, the WooCommerce Bulk Discount plugin works beautifully with the product table layout. Use the two plugins together and get the benefits of a one-page order form, coupled with the extra incentives offered by a bulk discount plugin. This creates a powerful incentive to buy, helping to increase your sales.
