5 Best Email Customizer Plugins For WooCommerce

Do your transactional emails from WooCommerce look elegant and professional? Are you tired of sending the boring default emails from your WooCommerce online store? You are not alone.

There are thousands of online stores that send emails with a crappy design or just use the same old default emails of WooCommerce that every other store owner uses.

Business is all about establishing a brand identity. To do that, your business and its activities, even an email that you send, should stand out. Only then people notice it, appreciate it, which adds value to your brand.

For an eCommerce store, any email that goes out of your system should look good. Especially, the transactional emails. In fact, the role of email in a business is like the Soccer ball’s role in a Soccer game. Mandatory. Don’t they need to be impressive?

Here we have made a curated list of 5 best WooCommerce Email Customizer plugins. These plugins help you enhance the looks of your email. Not just looks, to enhance the prospect of further customer engagement. Basically, with customizers, emails aren’t “written” anymore, they are “built”.

For example, let us say you are sending a transactional email when a new customer signs up. Your welcome email has to be so good that the customer makes a purchase soon, if not right away. Similarly, when you send an order confirmation / cancellation email, you could recommend a few hot selling products, which might interest them. This way, you are providing the customer a look at your products without even directing him to your site. Isn’t it great?

Here is the list of 5 best Email Customizer plugins for WooCommerce to tailor-make your emails and make them look elegant.

Many a times, you want to give discounts based on the quantity purchased, regardless of the subtotal of the cart. This tutorial walks you through how to provide discounts based on the quantities purchased by the customer.

WooCommerce Discount Rules deals with quantity based discounts in two ways - product level and cart level.

1. Product Specific Quantity Based Discount

Product level discounts are dependent on product(s) or category(s). For example, “Buy 10 mugs or more and get 5% off” or “Buy 5 items from Electronics and get 10% discount”. To set up discounts that depend on products or categories, you first need to…

Step 1:

Create a new rule in the Price Discount Rules tab.

Step 2:

Add the general details of your rule. Make sure you select the method as Quantity Based.

The quantity based discounts on a product level can apply on individual products or categories of products. Let us have a look at both the cases.

  1. How to set up quantity based discounts on individual products:

Note:
  1. To apply the rule to subcategories also, select “Apply Child Categories” checkbox.
  2. Check the box “Is Cumulative” if you want to include the quantities on the cart as individual products. Otherwise each line item in the cart will be considered as a single product regardless of the quantity.

Step 3:

Define the core discount properties. Add the minimum and maximum quantity (Min - 10, Max - some value, say 999), adjustment type (Percentage or Price discount) and the value of discount (5% or $50).

2. Cart Specific Quantity Based Discount

The quantity based discounts specific to cart level depend on the total number of cart items like “Buy any 5 items and get $20 off”. The rule will not apply to individual products or categories listed in the cart.

Step 1:

Create a rule in the Cart Discounts Rule tab.

How To Setup Dynamic Pricing In WooCommerce

You can now provide dynamic pricing for the discounts in your WooCommerce online store with WooCommerce Discount Rules. But, what is dynamic pricing? Dynamic pricing is an advantageous strategy to boost the sales of all or specific products. It allows you to give variable discount prices for different quantities purchased.

There is a more important question…

Why should you use dynamic pricing in your discounts?

Let us say that you want to increase the sales of a particular product, say a “Cap”. When you give a straight forward discount such as “Buy 5 Caps or more and get 30% discount”, only people who want to buy a minimum of 5 caps will make a purchase. Also, there is no assurance of how many people will buy it.

What if your discount rule says,

  • “Buy up to 3 caps and get 10% discount”
  • “Buy 4 to 7 caps and get 20% discount
  • “Buy more than 7 caps and get a 35% discount” - all in one rule? There is a chance of people buying 1 to any number of caps depending on how many they want. The rule attracts the people who want to buy 1 cap as well as the ones who want to buy 10 caps.

This is what Dynamic Pricing refers to.

How to setup dynamic pricing in WooCommerce?

Let us consider the same discount rule as mentioned above.

Step 1: Add a new rule in the Price Discount Rules tab and enter the general details.

1

The general details include Order(Priority), Rule name, Rule description, Method, Validity. Select the method as Quantity based by product/category.

Step 2: Next comes the Conditions tab where you set whom the discounts go to and on which product the rule applies.

set name expiry for the discount rule

It includes the following:

  1. Apply to: Choose All products / Specific products / Specific categories from the dropdown and select the required products or categories. Our example requires “Specific products” to be selected because “Cap” is an individual product. You can select any number of products / categories you want.
  2. Customers: Choose All Customers (recommended) or Only Given customers as you need.
  3. Purchase History: Leave it unchecked as this discount has nothing to do with customer’s purchase history.

Step 3: Define the different discount ranges. Add as many range as you need. Let’s create 3 ranges for our example.

set name expiry for the discount rule

In each range, provide:

  1. Minimum quantity - minimum quantity purchased
  2. Maximum quantity - maximum quantity purchased
  3. Adjustment type - Percentage discount / Price discount / Product discount. We choose Percentage discount.
  4. Value - Discount value of each range - 10, 20, 35.

Save the rule and your WooCommerce online store has implemented Dynamic pricing in discounts.

Use our demo site to work yourself and check how it goes.

How does that feel? Pretty great, isn’t it? Also learn how to provide the classic buy-one-get-one deals, user role based discounts and many more advanced discounts using WooCommerce Discount Rules plugin. You are welcome to share how your WooDiscounting experience has been in the comments below!

How To Configure WooCommerce Discount Rules

WooCommerce Discount Rules plugin is a simple yet powerful tool to boost your sales through discounts. You can provide various kinds of discounts from Buy-One-Get-One deals to Dynamic Pricing and anything in between.

Configuring the plugin as per your WooCommerce online store’s needs is pretty simple and takes only less than five minutes. This article walks you through how to configure the WooCommerce Discount Rules plugin and which setting does what.

  1. In your WordPress site’s dashboard, find the Woo Discount Rules under WooCommerce tab.
  2. You can find three tabs - Price discount rules, Cart discount rules and Settings. You know what to choose. Settings, it is.
  3. In the Settings tab, you have around 8 very basic properties to configure. Here’s how it looks.
    • License Key

      The License Key is unique and used for validating your plugin instance. You can get your License key on your My Downloads page. Enter your license key and click “Validate”.

    • Rule setup for price

      This property applies only to Price Discount Rules and NOT Cart Discount Rules. It has 3 options:

      set name expiry for the discount rule

      If there are two or more rules that apply to the same product, this property decides which rule to actually apply.

      • Apply first matched rule - To apply the rule with highest priority
      • Apply all matched rules - To apply all the matching rules
      • Apply biggest discount - To apply the rule that offers the highest discount

      The property applies to all the discount rules that you have created and not just one rule.

    • Show price discount on product page

      Familiar with the “Strikethrough” that appears on the product price when there is a discount?

      set name expiry for the discount rule

      Set the value of this property to “Show” for the strikethrough to appear. Otherwise set it to “Don’t Show”.

      set name expiry for the discount rule

    • Coupon name to be displayed

      It is the title to be shown on the Coupon field in your WooCommerce cart. If you set it to “special discount”, this is how the field looks on your cart page:

      set name expiry for the discount rule

    • Discount table

      The discount table appears on the product page and shows all the discounts applicable on the product. It has two columns - Range and Discount. To display the discount table on the product page, select “Show”. Else select “Don’t show”.

      The storefront looks like the below screenshot when the discount table is enabled.

      set name expiry for the discount rule

    • Show discount title on table

      If this property is set to “Show”, then an additional column “Name” appears on the discount table. This column displays the “Rule Name” of the discount rule. If it is set to “Don’t Show”, then the table displays only the Range and Discount columns.

      set name expiry for the discount rule

    • Rule setup for cart

      This property is similar to “Rule setup for price”. While the price property is for the Price Discount Rules, the Rule Setup For Cart property is for the Cart Discount Rules. It has the same three options:

      • Apply first matched rule
      • Apply all matched rules
      • Apply biggest discount

      Select whichever option you want to apply on all the cart discount rules.

    • Draft

      This property is a checkbox that asks to Exclude draft products in the product select box. If you check the box, the discounts are not applied on the products that are still in “Draft” mode, that is, the ones that are not published yet. Otherwise, the rules apply on products including the draft products.

  4. Save the rule and you are good to go.

Configuring WooCommerce Discount Rules is that simple.

Let us know how Woo Discount Rules has helped your business in the comments below! We would love to hear from you!

You might have assigned roles to the customers on your WooCommerce online store. For example, Registered Customers, Subscribers, Premium Users, Elite Users, and so on. There can be situations when you want to give discounts only to certain user roles.

Let us consider your intended offer is “Exclusive 30% off on all products - Only for Premium Users”.

The WooCommerce Discount Rules plugin comes quite handy when such a situation arises. Creating discounts based on user roles in your WooCommerce store is made simple with the WooDiscount Rules.

Follow this article to understand how to create user role based discounts on your WooCommerce store and implement it in a jiffy! However, before starting, there is one more area to focus…

Product Level or Cart Level?

You can apply role based discounts on product level or cart level. Let us take two different discount rules:

  1. Exclusive 40% off on all Electronic products - Only for Subscribed Users
  2. Exclusive 30% off on purchase above $500 - Only for Subscribed Users

Though both of the above rules apply on a particular user role (Subscribers), they differ on the level as well. The first rule applies on the Electronics category of products regardless of the cart details. The second one applies on the cart subtotal regardless of the products purchased.

WooCommerce Discount Rules handles both the cases.

Creating User Role Based Discounts on Product Level

Step 1 - Create a new rule in the Price Discount Rules tab.

1

Step 2 - Enter the general details of your discount.

set name expiry for the discount rule

The general details include Order (Rule priority), Rule name, Rule Description, Method (Depending on quantity or other products) and Validity period (optional but recommended).

Select “Quantity based by product/category and BOGO deals” option for our example.

Step 3 - Enter the discount conditions specific to the rule:

set name expiry for the discount rule

  • Apply To - All products / Specific products / Specific categories. Select “Specific Categories” and choose “Electronics” as per the example.
  • Customers - All / Only Given. The Only Given option deals with individual customers. So, choose “All”. You get to choose the user role in the next step.
  • User roles - Choose “Subscribers” from the dropdown of user roles you have created on your site. Note: Make sure that the user role has been created in prior.
  • Purchase history - Check if the discount is based on user’s purchase history. Our example has nothing to do with it so leave it unchecked.

Step 4 - Define the discount values:

set name expiry for the discount rule

  1. Minimum quantity - Minimum quantity to be purchased to avail the offer.
  2. Maximum quantity - Maximum quantity to be purchased to avail the offer.
  3. Adjustment type - Percentage discount
  4. Value - 40

Save the rule and your product level discount for “Subscribers” is applied on your site.

Creating User Role Based Discounts on Cart Level

Step 1 - Create a new rule in the Cart Discount Rules tab.

set name expiry for the discount rule

The options to choose the user roles are available in the Cart Discount rules only and NOT in Price Discount rules.

Step 2 - Enter the general details of your discount rule.

set name expiry for the discount rule

You can select more than one user role in a condition. You can also add more than one condition per discount rule depending upon what you are planning to offer.

Let us say you want to provide a 30% discount only to subscribers on purchase of more than $500. Then you need to add two conditions like shown below:

How To Setup Advanced Discounts In WooCommerce

In the previous article, we dealt with setting up bulk discounts with WooCommerce Discount Rules. Now let’s talk about how to define advanced discount rules on a cart level. It only takes a few minutes, a few clicks and a few keystrokes.

Here’s a step-by-step tutorial you can follow.

Basic

  1. Price Discount Rules - that applies the discount rules on the product level (on products or categories)
  2. Cart Discount Rules - that applies the discount rules on the cart level (on subtotal or number of cart items)
  3. Settings

For creating advanced discount rules, select the Cart Discount Rules tab and click on the Add New Rule button to get started.

General

Define the basic details of your discount rule in the initial page. There are 4 fields:

advanced discount

  1. Order - Priority of the rule
  2. Rule Name - Name of the rule
  3. Rule Description - A short description
  4. Validity - The From and To dates of the discount validity

Cart Conditions

There are multiple condition types you can choose from for creating advanced discount rules based on:

advanced discount

  1. Cart subtotal
  2. Cart item count
  3. Quantity sum
  4. Categories in cart
  5. Customer details

3. Order Item count

advanced discount

If your discount rule is “Add 5 items to your shopping bag and get 10% discount”, then you need to select Condition type as Sum of item quantities at least and value as 5. The 10% discount is set in the next page.

4. Based on Order Subtotal

advanced discount

If you are providing a discount based on the order subtotal, say “All orders above $500 will get 15% discount”, the Condition type will be Subtotal at least and value will be 500.

You can create as many conditions per rule as you want but the discount value is the same for all. You cannot apply 15% discount for one condition and 10% for another. If you want to apply different discount values, then you need to create a separate discount rule.

Discount
