Practical Use of WPC Product Timer for WooCommerce

Consider the following cases anyone might encounter when it comes to managing your shop:

  • (1) A new item will be opened for sale in your shop in the next Monday.
  • (2) You will stop selling an old fashioned product starting from this weekend.
  • (3) You will be running a sale event for one week starting from the first day of the next month.
  • (4) You want to hide some products from search at certain times of the day.
  • (5) Some products from your store are seasonal so they’re purchasable at certain periods of time only.
  • (6) You have items that are temporarily unsellable, but you still want to keep them visible to your customers.
  • (7) Your shop sells Christmas decorative ornaments from December 1st to December 24th every day from 7:00 to 21:00.
  • (8) Your restaurant serves breakfast before 9 A.M. and desserts after 8 P.M. only.
  • (9) You’d like to run festive sale campaigns on holidays, ie. on New Year’s Day, Independence Day, Labor Day, Thanksgiving, and Christmas Day.
  • (10) Your shop has recurring flash sales every Monday to keep buyers motivated to shop more often & get a fast turnover of stock.
  • (11) You sell alternating items on odd days and even days of the month.
  • (12) You have a need to hide your newly arrived product for stock checks from July 3rd to July 31st, then put it on sale at $29 for a week to promote sales upon product launch and change it back to its regular price at $39 from 8:00 August 15th.

An All-in-One Timer for Product Management

This is not only a timer, but it’s also the most usable plugin for setting any time-based task no matter how complicated it might be. As long as the defined time conditionals do not conflict, users are entitled to add unlimited actions (featured in the Premium version only) despite the type of chosen actions.

Stock Condition: As in (1) & (2), it’s easy for sellers to change the stock condition of a product from in stock to out of stock and vice versa using various time conditionals. This will be useful for updating stock conditions in products that have fast turnover and restocking.

Products’ Visibility: In (4), users can set the product as hidden to prevent it from appearing in the product search on the shop page. However, if customers have the exact link of the single product page, then they can still access and add it to the cart from there. On the other hand, users can also enable the product’s visibility at other defined times.

Products’ Availability: To completely stop your customers from buying specific items, users will need to combine two actions: setting those items as hidden and unpurchasable. This will ensure that they’re not available for sale but can still be seen from the exact product link as in (6).

Products’ Prices: It’s totally possible for shop owners to set sale prices or change the prices back to the regular using any kind of time conditionals. Remarkably, retailers can even plan ahead their promotional schedule for the whole year or every year using the recurring time conditionals.

Complete Time Conditionals for Use

We can proudly claim that our plugin is the best one concerning the time conditionals settings. WPC Product Timer has the capability to define all kinds of deadlines for the actions including both time (time point, consecutive & separate time periods) and date (exact dates, recurring dates, date range, separate dates, odd/ even dates, weekly on specific dates). Besides, the plugin displays the current date & time as well so that users can define the deadlines faster for actions. When it comes to choosing a date or time point, you can do it by selecting from the calendar or enter the correctly formatted numbers in the box.

  • On an exact date: as in (1)
  • Set a date range: as in (3), (7)
  • Multiple dates: as in (9) & (5), users can add up to 5 separate dates.
  • Before/ after a date: as in (2)
  • Before/after date & time: (7)
  • On even/ odd dates: as in (11)
  • Daily time range: as in (4)
  • Daily before /after time: as in (8)
  • Weekly on every specific date (10)

One special example of setting complex timeframes for your product is (12). This case requires adding 3 actions with 3 different kinds of time conditionals. To be specific, you should add in this order: 1. Set hidden, date range: July 3rd – July 31st, 2. Set sale price – $29, date range: August 3rd – August 10th (assuming product launched on August 3rd), 3. Set regular price, after date & time: August 15th – 8:00. Adding actions in order is just necessary for users to check on every phase of their launch schedule, in fact, the order doesn’t affect the result. You can add actions in any order that you like as long as time conditionals make sense.

User-friendly & Easy-to-Use Interface

Being able to tackle even the most complicated series of actions with complex user-defined timeframes, however, WPC Product Timer has a truly intuitive admin interface. There’s no need for users to configure any settings as everything is built-in and ready to use already. Users can start using this plugin right away without the need to go through the documentation. All functions are straight-forward even to beginners.

This is by far the best plugin that I've found to manage product expiration and timing tasks. The settings are extensive. I had a customization issue that's been quickly solved with the help of the developer of the plugin. The customer support is prompt and comprehensive. Thank you for this. This plugin is highly recommended!
