Sometimes the WooCommerce pricing options available by default are simply not dynamic enough to suit your needs.  WooCommerce Price Per Word aims to solve this problem for sellers that need variable pricing based on the word count or character count of an uploaded document.

When a buyer is ready to make a purchase they will upload a document directly to your product page.  The word / character count (depending on how you have your settings configured) will be calculated and the price will be set based on your price per word or character set for that product.

The price will update instantly for the buyer to see on screen, and they can continue with their purchase.

    Easy to install also for a non-professional webdesigner, working fine, support ready to help. The only thing I miss is the fact that the wordcount is not counting exactly (5% discrepancy), there would be potential for improvement.

    Technically this plugin works fine. But we came across the same issue as Nany had. The wordcount works not correctly. When a document has a wordcount of 4635, the plugin counts for the same document 4824 and the pdf version of it it counts 4683 (which meets at least “nearly” the original wordcount. What do you suggest to solve this issue?

    It meant quite a bit of work and needed some perseverence but in the end this plugin works fine. Also the support team was helpful to give support.

    The idea of this plugin is awesome, especially for taking translation orders. However, the word count calculation on the uploaded file is just not accurate at all! What I mean is it can’t function well. Have you ever thought of letting the buyers to paste the words in text field and the plugin can detect the word count automatically just like MS Words? This will be more accurate than uploading a file.

      Please submit a ticket here and provide a copy of the file you are working with so we can look at why it’s not getting counted properly. The classes that we’re using to count would be the same as if you pasted, so we just need to review the file and see what’s going on.
