To view, create and manage product pricing rules, navigate to Products > Product Pricing Rules.

Additionally, you can create a rule offering free gifts to eligible customers.

To create new pricing rules, click on Add New Product Rule and further customize by: 

Select individual products or categories:

  • All Products – applies price adjustments to the entire catalog of products in the shop
  • Specific Products – applies rule to selected products and categories only

Select discount rule type:

  • Dynamic price adjustments – applies discount or markup prices
  • Gift a Product – offers free gifts to customers instead of discounts (more details available in Free Gifts section)

Pricing table:

For dynamic price adjustments rule types, you have the option to display a tiered pricing table on your product pages. Select the Show Pricing Option to enable and let customers know the discounts and prices they can get for different quantity ranges. Pricing table positions and layouts are customizable by going to WooCommerce > Settings > Dynamic Pricing > Table Settings.

Customer-specific pricing:

To apply a pricing rule to specific customers, click Add Row, select the customer(s) and define the pricing rule by setting the adjustment type, value, minimum / maximum quantity, etc. 

Role-based pricing:

To apply a rule based on user roles, click Add Row, select the applicable user roles and define the pricing rule by setting the adjustment type, value, minimum / maximum quantity, etc.

Tiered pricing: 

The tiered pricing option allows you to display a pricing table on your product pages letting customers know the discounts and prices they can get for different quantity ranges.
