If you have a business that requires an online store, chances are your site is built on WooCommerce, powered by WordPress. With a market share of 25%, WooCommerce helps you build an eCommerce store using WordPress as the operating system.

Launched in 2011, WooCommerce quickly became the primary solution for users to build their online stores. With features that covered all the necessities mentioned below, WooCommerce has become a go-to platform for online stores.

With features such as:

  • Free
  • Open-sourced
  • User-friendly
  • Extensible and extensive
  • Customizable
  • Secured

— WooCommerce turns your WordPress-powered website into a fully functioning eCommerce store.

As of today, there are requirements for some eCommerce stores to put up instant notifications, updates, promos, etc. For instance, an online clothing store requires a discount notice to be put up. The current WooCommerce functionality is limited to the product description area, where you can hardly put up any eye-catching notice.

CloudRedux, finding and understanding the challenge to put up notices on web stores for their own clientele, came up with the idea to build a plugin that will benefit the requirement.

Product Notices for WooCommerce

This transformative plugin powers your WooCommerce based store and puts up your notice in front of your audience. The “Product Notices for WooCommerce” plugin lets you set up and display notices for products on your WooCommerce-WordPress website. With this plugin, you can set notices globally to display on all products or on a per-product basis.

  • An extensive, one-of its kind, this WooCommerce plugin allows you to set up important notices, highlights, promos, discounts etc. on your webstore.
  • With this plugin you are able to put up two kinds of notices:
    1. Global Notice: These are the notices that you can highlight across your store. This feature allows you to set up notices to show on all the products. It may be some kind of market announcement, alert, or for any other criteria.
    2. Per-Product Notice: This feature allows you to show notices on a per-product basis. The notice may be in the form of promo, discount, or any other criteria. This feature also allows you to hide the global notice from the page, thus allowing custom store notices an easy task.
  • With its inbuilt functionality to change the appearance, you can modify your notice as per your requirement.
  • HTML and shortcodes are fully supported in the notice text field. This gives you better flexibility to be creative while creating notices, promo, alerts or discount notifications.
