Product Price History is the perfect solution for WooCommerce shops looking to be transparent about their pricing strategy and gain the trust of their customers. The plugin offers detailed price history charts and customizable lowest price messages, allowing you to stay competitive and showcase your commitment to transparency.
If you’re operating in the European Union, displaying the lowest price of a product on sale within the last 30 days is mandatory, but it also helps customers make informed decisions by showing them the previous sale prices of a product.
By using Product Price History, you can increase your profits, optimize your pricing strategy, and build trust with your customers, who will appreciate the transparency and credibility it brings to your webshop.

The price history chart is not displaying on my product pages, what should I do?
First, enable the chart module, navigate to the “Price History > Chart Settings” section and ensure that the “Enable” option is checked. The “Minimum prices to display” field determines the minimum number of price changes required for the chart to be displayed.
It’s important to note that the product price history only tracks price changes from the point at which the plugin was activated. It does not track any previous price changes that may have occurred before activation.
Ensure that the chart is not hidden on your product page, navigate to the “Product Price History” tab on the edit product page and make sure that the “Hide chart” checkbox is not checked.
If the chart still does not display, try clearing your browser cache or accessing the page from a different browser. If the issue persists, contact our support team for further assistance.
