When selling online, you want the perfect combination of pleasant shopping experience, ease of use and outstanding products. These five plugins will help you with that last bit.

1. Fancy Product Preview for WooCommerce

The Fancy Product Preview for WooCommerce plugin converts the product thumbnails in your WooCommerce catalog/category pages to a fancy product preview gallery.

Simply roll over an image thumbnail to see a larger image preview and/or gallery of additional images.

Main Features

1. Show all product images in the catalog/category listing, as a fancy pop-up gallery.
2. Gives your customers a more intuitive shopping experience.
3. Choose the number of images to show.
4. Customize the Fancy Preview border.
5. Enable/disable the Fancy Preview shadow.
6. Fade out of other products on the page.
7. Choose the Fancy Preview image dimensions and cropping.
8. Choose the pagination position.
9. Choose the pagination colors.

2. Minimum Advertised Price

Sometimes you might want to sell a product for less than you are allowed to advertise it for due to a restriction by the manufacturer. The Minimum Advertised Price plugin allows you to work around this restriction.

Easily set a minimum advertised price for products. This price is displayed until the customer takes action, either by clicking Show Price or adding the product to their cart.

The minimum advertised price is displayed with strikethrough text and an optional call to action is displayed prompting the customer to See Price in Cart. Clicking this will display a small popup which lists the minimum advertised price, along with the actual price (the price your customer will pay) for the product.

Key Features

  • Set a minimum advertised price for products
  • Choose when to show the actual price, either when the customer clicks See Price, or when they have added the product to their cart
  • Customize the call to action next to the minimum advertised price
  • Optionally show savings off the minimum advertised price when the product is added to the cart
  • Full support for simple and variable products, with regular and sale pricing.

3. WooCommerce Custom Availability

Customize your WooCommerce availability notifications for products so they are more descriptive. Tell your valued customers when new stock will arrive or when new stock will be available for completing back-orders. Keep them in the loop about your products’ availability whether it’s out of stock, in stock, low stock or available on back-order.

4. Compare Products Pro

This extension creates a simple and easy to use compare feature on the front end that is easy to set up and manage in the backend. Advanced backend features like bulk products update from a single page make managing the compare feature across your entire product range a breeze.

Classy front end display will build customer confidence in your site as you make it easy to compare product features. Compare Products Pro helps make the buying decision easier for your customers.

5. Dynamic Pricing

WooCommerce Dynamic Pricing gives you a powerful system for creating four different types of bulk discounts and price adjustments. The add-on has been designed to give store owners ultimate flexibility in controlling prices.

Configure bulk discounts (10% off when you purchase 3 or more of an item, for example) for each product in your store by creating a table of quantities and discount amounts. Choose from fixed price adjustments, percentage adjustments or set a fixed price for the product. Optionally choose roles the pricing rule should be applied for.

Advanced product pricing is useful when you need to discount a product based on the quantity of something a shopper is purchasing. Optionally, advanced product pricing can be applied to existing customers who you have created a group for, such as Gold Members. This is useful for rewarding long-term customers to keep them coming back.
