If you’re running a WooCommerce store and looking for ways to boost your sales, the WooCommerce Notification plugin from Devtools Club can be a game-changer. This powerful tool displays real-time pop-up notifications of recent orders on your store, creating a sense of urgency, social proof, and increasing your conversion rates.
An Essential Sales Boost
At the heart of WooCommerce Notification is its ability to showcase recent orders in real-time via pop-up notifications. The plugin gives you unparalleled control to customize this feature:
- Order Selection: Choose the types of orders to display based on their status, including Complete, Processing, On hold, Canceled, Refunded, Pending payment, or Failed orders.
- Order Time: Define a specific time frame for displaying orders, reinforcing the freshness of your products.
- Category Focus: Tailor notifications to specific product categories, ensuring that the notifications resonate with the interests of your visitors.
- Product Visibility: Handpick products with particular visibility settings, allowing you to highlight those that matter most.
- External Links: For external/affiliate products, create redirects to the respective product pages when users click on the notifications.
- Product Exclusion: Avoid clutter by excluding specific products from appearing in the notifications.
- Out-of-Stock Flexibility: Decide whether out-of-stock products should be featured in the notifications.
- Auto Time Adjustment: Automatically sync the virtual time with your site’s timezone for a seamless user experience.
- Image Customization: Alter the product image size to fit the notification format seamlessly, ensuring it complements your site’s design.
Fostering a Sense of Urgency – The Magic of Fake Orders
WooCommerce Notification is able to create fake orders, adding a sense of busyness and interest around specific products. Here’s how this works:
- Selected Products: Handpick products and provide the necessary information. The plugin then generates fake orders for these selected products.
- Selected Categories: For stores with an extensive product range, this function simplifies the process of creating fake orders.
- Latest Products: Promote your latest additions by generating fake orders for them, introducing new products to potential customers.
- Product Visibility: Customize product visibility for fake orders.
- External Links: As with real orders, you can configure external links for affiliate products.
- Out-of-Stock Inclusion: Decide whether out-of-stock products should also feature in the notifications, creating an illusion of demand.
- Auto-Detect Addresses: The plugin can auto-detect customer addresses via IP, making the fake orders seem even more realistic.
- Random Purchase Times: For authenticity, select a purchase time randomly within a range you define.
- Customize Customer Information: Personalize fake customer details, including names and addresses, to make the notifications appear genuine.
- Image Flexibility: Customize the product image size for fake orders, maintaining visual consistency.
Crafting Unique Product Details
With the WooCommerce Notification plugin, you have the power to fine-tune product details in your notifications:
- Run Single Product: Customize notifications to show only the current product being viewed by a customer on a product detail page.
- Targeted Display: On a product detail page, notifications can focus on the product being viewed or other products from the same category.
- Variation Emphasis: If you offer variable products, choose to display variations instead of the variable products themselves, ensuring clarity in your notifications.
The WooCommerce Notification plugin is more than just a functionality powerhouse; it’s designed to enhance the visual appeal of your store:
- Template Variety: Choose from 22 built-in templates to change the appearance of your notifications.
- Shape Selection: Opt for rounded or square pop-up shapes, aligning with your site’s aesthetics.
- Flexible Positioning: Select from four positions for displaying the pop-ups, ensuring they complement your site’s layout.
- Image Placement: Decide whether to display the product image on the left or right within the notifications.
- User-Friendly Close Button: Offer customers the option to close notifications, with the ability to set a time for the pop-up to reappear.
- Mobile Convenience: Enable swift closing on mobile devices for a user-friendly experience.
- Dynamic Effects: Add flair to your notifications by choosing appearing and disappearing effects.
- Auditory Impact: Accompany pop-up appearance with sound effects, adding another layer of attention-grabbing charm. Note that this option requires user actions on your site.
- Custom CSS: For advanced users, the plugin provides a Custom CSS field for further design customization.
- Clickable Product Images: Enhance user experience by making product images within the notifications clickable, leading to the respective product pages.
- Parent Product Images: In the absence of specific product variation images, the plugin displays parent product images for continuity.
- Page Assignment: Enable or disable the plugin on specific pages, such as the Homepage, Checkout page, and Cart page. For other pages, use conditional tags to target where the notifications should appear.
