WooCommerce Gold Price


Add Gold Price to WooCommerce

This plugin enables easily changing prices of gold products, based on their weigth/purity and the gold value.


Now one can also add a spread % value and/or a fee value.


Please use the WordPress.org forums for community support as I cannot offer support directly for free.

If you want help with a customisation, hire a developer!


  • Product seetings for Gold products
  • Updating gold values and product prices


  1. Upload plugin files to your plugins folder, or install using WordPress’ built-in Add New Plugin installer
  2. Activate the plugin
  3. Insert/Edit a simple product in WooCommerce
  4. Mark it as Gold Product and select its ‘karat’ value of 24, 22, 18 or 14 to indicate the purity of the gold
  5. Add a Spread % and/or a fee to be added
  6. Fill in its weight value
  7. Update the gold price at WooCommerce -> Gold Price and all products with ‘karat’ field will have their prices updated
  8. Price is calculated as ( ( Karat value * weight ) + spread % ) + fee, e.g. $11 * 1g (= $11) + $2.20 (20% of $11) (= $13.20) + $5.00 = $18.20


How many karats can be used?

  • Only 24k, 22k, 18k and 14k.

Do I need to calculate/inform the price when adding a new gold product?

  • No, unless you are not going to update the gold prices after adding the product.

Can I have a sale price for gold products?

  • Yes, but the sale price will be removed when the gold price is updated.

I see no products under “Gold priced products” ( WooCommerce -> Gold Price )

  • This is because you have no gold products, e.g. products marked as Gold product. See edit product page.

What “Product was on sale, can’t calculate sale price” means?

  • Means that the product no longer is on sale, as the plugin can’t calculate sale prices and just removed it.
    There is a handy link to edit the product, if one whishes to put it on sale again.

Very useful plug-in Product Weight column is not appearing in my theme, kindly add one more option by which it is able to calculate product price based on its shipping weight.
