Premium Features under the Advanced tab
Under the Advanced tab, there are several other powerful options to tweak your price. Let’s jump over to the Advanced tab and learn about the options.
SKU With Variation Name
First of all, we want to introduce you to the SKU With Variation Name option. Enabling this option will include the SKU with the variation name. Note that this option only works if you have the Price types > List All Variation Price option selected.
Here is an example of how SKU is added with the variation name:-
Let’s learn about the first option of the Advanced settings called the Display Condition. Under this section, you will find three different options to display the custom price types for your WooCommerce variable product.
The three options are Shop/Archive page, Single Product/Product Description page and Both Shop and Single Product Page. If you select the Shop/Archive page, the custom price will be visible only to your Shop or product archive like the category pages.
Enabling the second option will display the custom price on the Single product pages or the product details pages on your store.
Finally, the plugin comes with the third option as default. Custom prices will be displayed both on Shop and Single Product pages if you keep this section untouched.
Display Discount Badge
You can display a discount badge after your custom price for products that are on sale. This will help to make the price more attractive and informative. Your customer will be able to know the percentage of discount from the badge.
The discount badge is only available for three price types (minimum price, maximum price, and List all variation price).
Here is a product price with the discount badge:
Disable Price for Admin
Finally, Variation Price Display Range for WooCommerce Pro comes with an option to disable the custom price for admin. As a site administrator, you may want to see the price in the default WooCommerce way. This thoughtful option makes this easy for you.
Just enable this option and the price customizations will only apply to your store’s visitors and customers.
Take care of plugin automatic updates
Fully activate the plugin by inserting the license key to the License tab in the settings section. This will help you stay safe by receiving plugin updates right from the dashboard.
