The WCAS allows you to manage the availability of all your products, scheduling them throughout the day of the week You will have the flexibility to choose for every day of the week (Monday to Sunday) one time range when your products will be available to your customers for purchasing, automatically hiding/showing the “add to cart button” (and optionally the product) on shop and product pages, showing a custom message and a countdown timer.
Furthermore, product daily availability can be also limited by total sale per each day.
How it works
Just install the plugin and then in each product page you will find a new metabox by which you will be able to configure the product availability/unavailability! Optionally you can use the Bulk availability scheduler to assign availability rules in bulk.
Custom Messages and Shortcodes
WCAS. plugin lets you display custom messages both on shop page and product page. Let your customers know why product are unavailable for purchasing and when they will be using [start_time] and [end_time] shortcodes directly in custom messages.
WCAS. gives also the option to restrict products purchase availability using users roles. In this way, the shop admin for a particular day of the week (Monday to Sunday) can set a particular time range and restrict the purchasing capability to only a set of users.
WCAS. plugin gives you the option to display countdown timers that let your customers know how much time misses to start purchasing time, to the end purchasing time or to the expiration date and time.
Expiring date time
By WCAS. plugin you can set an expiring date time for every product. After this date-time the product will be automatically hidden and unavailable for purchasing (is set as ‘draft’). Optionally the product can be still set as visible (but it will be unpurchasable). You can also display a countdown timer to the expiration date and messages (both on the shop and/or product pages) to be shown before and after the expiration date.
Completely hide products during unavailability period
WCAS can automatically hide products during the “unavailable” period (set as ‘draft’) and make them visible only during the “available” period.
Day Unavailability by day total sales
The WCAS gives also the option to limit the product available for each day setting a max value of total sales past which the product will be unavailable for purchase (or hidden, according to the Hide product during unavailability option).
The shop admin can also display a nice progress bar which displays the current sales progress per day. Bar colors can be customized in the options menu.
