Offers for WooCommerce provides flexibility with product pricing and adds the power of negotiation to your WooCommerce website.  Users can submit an offer and you can accept, decline, or counter the offer.  Any time you have accepted or countered an offer the potential buyer will be given an email with a link to purchase the product(s) at the negotiated price.

If you need help installing the plugin you may want to review our Install Guide prior to reading this user guide.

Managing Offers - Details

The offer details page provides a complete overview of the information provided for the offer.  From here you can adjust offer pricing and QTY values, adjust the status of the offer, add notes, and more.

  • Product Details – This section provides details about the product that the offer is for, the regular price set in WooCommerce for the product, and any stock information that may be available for the product.
  • Buyer Details – This section provides details about the potential buyer including their name and contact information.
  • Original Offer – This section provides details about the original offer including the original quantity and price per unit offered.
  • Counter Offer – This section provides the current quantity and price per unit.  If the offer was simply accepted this will match the Original Offer details.  If you have submitted a counter-offer this will be reflected accordingly here.
  • Offer Note to Buyer – Add a note here when updating the status of the offer to have the note included with the offer email the potential buyer will receive.  You can use this to explain to the buyer why you may have accepted, countered, or declined their original offer.
  • Offer Status – This section allows you to set whether or not you are accepting, declining, or countering the offer.  You may also set additional options here like a “final offer” or an expiration date for the offer.
  • Offer Activity Log – This section is a running history of the offer details.  Any status updates, notes, etc. will be included here for your review.
  • Add Offer Note – This section can be used to add an additional note to the offer without updating the status of the offer.  This is typically used for internal notes that only you will see, however, there is an option to email the note to the buyer.

Managing Offers - Declined Offer Coupon

You may wish to decline a particular offer, but including a coupon code in your declined offer email to the buyer may entice them to go ahead and make the purchase using that coupon.

When you choose “Declined Offer” for the Offer Status the Coupon List drop down box will appear with all of your currently active coupons codes listed.  Select any coupon code to have it included with the declined offer email notification the buyer receives.
