Automatically Open and Close Your Store

Automatically open and close your online store according to your business routine or modified working hours with the Open Close Store Hours plugin for WooCommerce. Online stores that are bound to operate at a specific time or day of the week can communicate it effectively.

You can set business hours for each day and hide the ‘Add to cart’ button to prevent taking orders when in off-hours. Close your webshop for any specific holiday or event. It will stop users from placing orders when your staff is not around to serve. With the exclusion option, you can rule out specific products or categories from the store shutdown so that customers can continue ordering them.  In addition to the automatic open and close store routine, you can manually close it as well if there is a need. The customizable popup can be shown on the shop, cart, product, and checkout page.

Use Cases:

Any business can use the plugin as conveying store closure with a popup is professional and polite rather than letting them call or email which are not answered as no one is there to respond.

The food and restaurant industry can benefit from the plugin as they need to communicate with customers about working hours and closure on holidays and specific events.

Store owners dealing in products that require customization like greeting cards, gifts, rings and jewelry, and other wearables would also like to stop taking orders at a specific time or day of the week as such orders are subject to the availability of their staff members.

Online meat shops often close two days a week to ensure an even supply of meat products and take time in updating stock with fresh items.
