Woocommerce Product Shortcodes

Description

Sometimes you refer to a product in a post, page or on your homepage with reference to a price, product name or SKU.
With this plugin, you can replace the static text with a shortcode so the values are pulled dynamically from your woocommerce store.
Especially useful when referring to the price as this can change regularly leaving old static text out of date.

To get started, use the shortcode to show the price:
[woo-product-shortcodes id=”20″ data_attribute=”price”]

Use can use data_attributes for “name”, “short_description”, “sku”, “price”, “regular_price”, “sale_price” and more. See FAQ for details.
