The plugin enables users to create complex rules involving percentage and flat discount types effortlessly. The user can even dynamically set a new price replacing the regular or the sales price. Along with the usual features expected from a dynamic pricing plugin, I will discuss some unique features in the next section.

What Features Can You Expect From the ELEXtensions Plugin?

Along with the following usual features:

Dynamic Pricing

  • Discount based on User Roles.
  • Discount based on the date of purchase. Option to set up a discount expiry date.
  • Discount types can be either “Percentage,” “Flat,” or “Fixed Price.”
  • Buy & Get Free offers can be set up.
  • Discount based on category.
  • Discount based on cart parameters.
  • The pricing table is displayed on the product page.
  • It also has the following unique features:
  • The pricing and discount rules can be broadly set under– “Product Rules,” “Category Rules,” “Combinational Rules,” “Category Combinational rules,” “Cart rules,” and “Buy and Get Free(offers).” This detailed classification has made this plugin much easier to set up and less confusing while deciding which rules should go under which tab.
  • An option to automatically add the free product in the cart if a product qualifies for the BOGO rule.
  • Setting up recurring rules is much simpler. You can mention the rule number that is required to be repeated in the required field of the settings page.
  • An option to enable or disable any of the rule types (product rules, cart rules, etc.)
  • Rules can be set up based on either “Quantity,” “Price,” or “Weight.”
  • An “Adjustment” option can be used in several ways, for example, excluding 1 unit of the product from following a discount rule.
  • There’s an option to set up a “Maximum Discount” value if you want to restrict the discount to a specific value.
  • Any product can be excluded from following a rule using an add-on
  • Import/Export is one of the unique features of this plugin. In the case of a massive number of regulations, migration from one website to another can get real challenging without this feature. Secondly, if, for some reason, the user wants to delete all the rules and keep a backup, this feature would be invaluable.
  • The Offer Table feature is excellent in displaying all the available discount options to the customers.
  • The pricing format is customizable for variable products by using an add-on.
  • The free version is equipped with all the basic features and is apt for small businesses. What’s best is that we provide fantastic support even to the free version users.

Examples of Real Business Cases

  1. Discounting per item except for the first item in the cart. Using the “Adjustment” setting of the plugin, we could provide a solution to this feature.
  2. Selling of digital products in conjunction with a physical product. Using the BOGO feature of the Dynamic Pricing plugin, a solution could be provided for this, which enabled the customer to add the required physical product to the cart in which a virtual product has been selected. A detailed article on the same is given here – WooCommerce Dynamic Pricing and Discounts – Offer discounts for different combinations of categories.
  3. Giving discounts based on the combination of the categories of the items in the cart. When customers faced problems using “Combinational rules” for many products, they introduced the “Category Combinational rule.” Here’s a detailed article on this – WooCommerce Dynamic Pricing and Discounts – Offer discounts for a different combination of categories.
  1. Besides the above solutions, there are two valuable add-ons:

ELEXtensions Plugin: Major Drawbacks

Like every plugin, ELEXtensions also packs in a couple of cons that are listed below:

  1. A pricing table can be displayed only for product rules and only if there is more than one rule for a product.
  2. Though the offer table displays all the available rules in the case of every product, it shows only the discount text.

Can I Expect Support in Case of Any Issues?

Yes, the support of ELEXtensions is one of the best. The following support is available for the premium version:

  1. Tickets (Recommended)
  2. Email
  3. Live Chat

ELEXtensions Plugin: Future Features

They have just launched the latest version. Along with a whole lot of new features, the ELEXtensions Plugin has an improved interface.

The entire flow has been revamped in the latest version. The plugin has been created so that users won’t have to look up the documentation for any help.

The following are the new features added in the latest version:

  1. An option that will allow you to choose the rules required to be executed from among all the available rules. You can choose to select among “Best Discount,” “First Match,” and “All Match.”
  2. The order of the execution of the rules can be changed. The position of the rules can be changed by the newly added “Drag-and-Drop” feature. You can further change the position of the “Product rules,” “Category Rule,” “Cart Rule,” “Combinational Rule,” “Category Combinational Rule,” and “Buy and Get Free.” This would help in deciding the “First Match Rule.”
  3. Discount based on email ID(s).
  4. Discount based on the number of previous orders.
  5. Discount based on the number of previous orders.
  6. In the case of combinational rules, you can choose to give a discount on only one or two of the products combined. In the previous versions, the combinational rule discounts used to work as a net discount.
  7. The recurring rules feature has been simplified by adding it to the rules. In the previous version, this feature was added to the settings page. Recurring rules are available only for Product Rules.

Now, let’s move to the installation process.

Getting Started with ELEX WooCommerce Dynamic Pricing and Discounts Plugin

ELEX WooCommerce Dynamic Pricing and Discounts also comes as a freemium plugin. If you want to download a free version of this plugin, you can do it from their official website. But you should note that you cannot avail of all the features in the free version. To avail of all the features of this plugin, choose the premium version.

Dynamic Pricing Main Page

I already told you this is the basic version of this plugin, so you can use only two options Product Rules and Category rules. So let’s describe these two options.

1. Product Rules

There are no rules created to create a rule; click the “Add New Rule” button on the top left-hand side. After clicking on this, the setting screen will appear on your screen. You need to fill the below requirements.

  • Rule Applicable On: Here, you can apply the rule either to any suitably selected categories or any selected products or all products in the cart.
  • Products: Here, you can select any product.
  • Check For: Here, you can apply the weight, price, or quantity of any product.
  • Minimum Quantity: Here, you can add the discount to the minimum quantity. Suppose if a user can start by a minimum of two, then a user can avail of the deal.
  • Maximum Quantity: Here, you can add the discount in full quantity. Suppose if a user wants to avail of the discount then a user can buy a maximum of 2 quantity of products.
  • Discount Type: Here, you can see their options, use anyone percent discount, flat discount, and fixed price.
  • Discount Percentage: You can provide a percentage-based discount on the product amount.

Next, click on the “Save Rule” button, the rule has been applied. You can also update the rule later.
