Sometimes you want to make a splash with a sale at your store. Other times, you’d prefer to keep things a bit more selective.
This post is about the latter – specifically, how to create a secret sale at your WooCommerce store.
With a secret sale, you’ll have pinpoint control over exactly which users have access to your sale prices.
You can either:
- Create a private category (or categories) and grant access to specific user roles or create a password to allow entrance to the secret sale categories.
- Make your entire WooCommerce store private so that only authorized users can access any part of your store (including the sale).
If there’s one feature that you’ll find on nearly every single affiliate website, it’s a product comparison table. Seriously – I think a requirement for joining the Amazon Associates affiliate program is that you be able to create product comparison tables – they’re that common.
But despite their ubiquity, most people still laboriously create their product tables using page builders, custom HTML, or an Excel-like table plugin like TablePress.
In this article, I’m going to show you an alternative solution that’s a great option if you’re running an affiliate website powered by WooCommerce.
Need to create a private WooCommerce category that only authorized users have access to? With the right tools, you can make one or more categories on your store completely private.
Then, you can either give automatic access to certain user roles that you specify or give users a password that they can use to access the private category.
This comes in handy if you need to create a:
- Separate category of wholesale products that only certain users have access to.
- Private category that’s just for members, like if you’re running a membership site and want to offer a special set of products to just those members.
- Your own niche use. I’m sure you can think up lots of other site-specific uses!
Need a solution that lets you accept deposits or payment plans on your WooCommerce site? This comes in helpful if you’re selling big-ticket items, using WooCommerce for bookings, or plenty of other more site-specific situations.
WooCommerce doesn’t offer that functionality by default. But with the right plugin, you can start accepting deposits in no time.
The aptly named Deposits For WooCommerce is one of those plugins. It aims to provide a solution for the affordable price of just $39.00.
Love them or hate them, popups, especially those that push people to subscribe to your email list, are a digital marketing tactic that is here to stay.
But if you want to dip your toes into the world of popups, you’re going to need a WordPress popup plugin to help you do it.
To help you find the plugin that’s right for your needs, I collected some of the best free and premium popup plugins for WordPress.
Not too long ago, I talked about the somewhat paradoxical idea of password protecting WooCommerce product categories to prevent unauthorized visitors from accessing specific categories at your store.
Now, I’m going to take things one step further and show you how to create an entirely private WooCommerce store. That is, instead of merely restricting access to certain categories, you’re going to learn how to restrict access to the whole shebang in one fell swoop.
Ever wished that you could create a sortable, filterable table that contains all or some of your WooCommerce products?
If you’re running a WooCommerce store, you know that WooCommerce already comes with a dedicated shop archive page that helps you showcase individual products. But, depending on what you’re selling, that might not always be the most efficient way to showcase your products.
That is – sometimes showing WooCommerce products in a table is more effective.
Most WooCommerce store owners are trying to get their products in front of as many eyeballs as possible. More traffic is always good because it means a better chance to make a sale, right?
This post isn’t for those WooCommerce store owners.
Instead, I’m going to talk about a more niche use – password protecting certain WooCommerce product categories to restrict access.
