Developed by the core WooCommerce team, the WooCommerce New Product Badge is a plugin that adds a small ‘New’ badge to products that have recently been added to your eCommerce website so that your customers can check out your new inventory. You can set the number of days for what’s new in your online store, under the catalog settings.
This WooCommerce eCommerce plugin will change the way the “Sale” sticker is displayed in your eCommerce website. Instead of simply letting your customers know that a product is on sale, you can tell them exactly how much they’ll be saving by purchasing the product while it’s on sale, to encourage them to buy. The new sticker will display “Save $x!” or “Save up to $x” for selected products.
The WooCommerce Customizer helps even those who have no coding knowledge customize WooCommerce button text, labels, and more. This plugin provides a settings page that helps shop owners modify WooCommerce filters without the need for templates or codes. You can use the plugin to change the ‘Add to Cart’ button text, number of products per page, tax label text, and other WooCommerce defaults.
This WooCommerce plugin adds a tab to your product pages, storing all product images in your gallery, thus helping you clean up your product pages. Depending on your theme, your image gallery could appear quite messy or take up a lot of real estate on your product page. By storing these images in a tab, you can clean up your product pages while still using the WooCommerce image lightbox so that your customers can see more detailed images.
The Order Delivery Date for WooCommerce is a WordPress plugin that allows customers to optionally select a future delivery date for their order, while ordering from your online shop. It’s great for websites that offer local delivery or sell oversized items, like furniture. The customer’s chosen delivery date is included in the order “Custom Fields” as well, so that administrators can view the delivery date for an order.
