Global rule level price:

↑ Back to top

You can create global rules to enable measurement-based pricing for multiple products and categories. Instead of going through each product page to configure measurement type, units, and price, you can save time by implementing this in bulk. You can also configure the minimum and maximum purchase-amount rule levels.

Just like the product level settings, you can configure the measurement type, input/output unit and size limitation at the rule level. However, when it comes to setting the price, you can choose from three different options. To create a global rule, go to WooCommerce > Price Calculator > Add New Rule:

  • Select the products and categories to which you want to apply the price calculation
  • Add unit text –  you can use variable {unit} to display the measurement unit
  • Select the Measurement type – Length, Weight, Area, Volume, Box, or Surface Area
  • Select the measuring unit
  • Select input field type:
    • Open input field – Allows customer to input value within min/max range
    • Show specific measurement in dropdown – Add comma separated sizes to be displayed in dropdown on frontend
  • Select input measurement unit
    • Use price measurement unit – Use same as pricing unit
    • Let customer select measurement unit – Choose units to display in a dropdown on frontend allowing customer to input size
  • Add minimum and maximum size range (This will appear when you select “Open input field” from above dropdown)
  • Add minimum and maximum purchase range
  • Select one of the three pricing options as described below:

1) Add per unit price in rule and price table:

Same price will be applied to all products and categories selected in rule. As seen in above screenshot above, you can add per unit price and create pricing table as well.

2) Use standard price as per unit price:

The standard price of each product will be used as per unit price.

3) Use product level measurement price:

Using this option, you can configure price using the fields displayed “Price Calculation” heading on product page. You can also add price table for each product.

Variable Products:

↑ Back to top

Just like simple products, you can setup a price calculator for variable products, however the handling of variable products is a bit different. From product level settings, you can configure measurement type, units, size limits for the entire product. If all of the variations have the same price, you can configure the price table from the price calculator settings. If the pricing table is not configured, then the extension will automatically use the standard and sale price set at the variation level. 

You also can create pricing tables for each variation. Go to Product data > Variations and you will see the option to add the price table.

Stock Management:

↑ Back to top

Price Calculator for WooCommerce enables you to manage your stock based on product size as well. Once the extension is configured, the “Stock Quantity” field will default to the pricing measurement unit. For example, if you have 500 in stock and configure the price measuring unit to be Sq. ft, the stock quantity will display as 500 Sq. ft. Please note if you later change the measurement type to something like Sq. M, you will need to manually reduce the stock to account for 500 Sq.M.
