How the WebBoss.io eCommerce module can help with your sale items

 

The WebBoss platform is full of features that can really help you organise and showcase your online products. When it comes to sale items, the WebBoss eCommerce module has some really cool features to help you shift those unwanted items from your stock room. Here are a few ways that WebBoss can help you shift those sale items. 

1. Discounted Products

Add discounts to your products to show your users the new and old price. This will encourage people to buy from you, if they can see the price difference or how much they are saving, they will be more likely to part with their cash. Within the system there is a really easy way to discount your products, in the ‘Special Offers’ section when you edit a product, you can keep the original price and add a discounted price, this will appear on the front end of your website to tell users the new discounted price of a product.

2. Image Overlay

You can also easily add an overlay to your products to really make them stand out and tell your users that there is a sale or discount on a product. In the ‘Special Offers’ section of the edit product page, you will have the option to write some text which will appear over the product image on the front end of your website for example, ‘30% Off’. This will really make the discounted product stand out. You don’t have to add this, however it can be really useful when you are trying to sell discounted products.

You can choose to use the default image overlay colour and text colour if you would like too, however there is a way of customising this if you would like to use specific colours. To do this go to ‘Shop Settings’ > ‘Display Settings’ > ‘Product Display Options’ and scroll to the bottom, here you will see some settings that will allow you to customise your overlay. You can choose whether you want the overlay to be across one of the corners, or you can choose to have a circle.  You can also choose which corner you would like the overlay to be displayed on your product image. You can then choose the colour of the overlay and also the colour of the text.

You can also add different promotions to different products. Again within the edit product pages, you can choose any discount price and also add in any text to the overlay for each individual product. For example, some may be 30% off, while others might be 10% or 20%; you can even add in text like ‘Price Drop’ or ‘Sale’, etc.

3. Exclusive Promo Codes

Exclusive promo codes are definitely a great option for encouraging new and return customers. These codes can either be targeted in an email campaign to certain email subscribers, or you can even display the code on your website somewhere for example, within the description  of your product page. These codes can be created in the ‘Shop Settings’ > ‘Promo Codes’, from here you can create as many promo codes as you like. The user will then be able to add the code within the checkout area, where the money will then automatically be deducted from the original product cost. Within the settings you will have the option to add the name of the code, add a percentage off or you can add in a cost deduction, you can also add an expiry date.

4. Special Offers Category

Within your categories, there will be a default ‘Special Offers’ category, this can be really useful for displaying all of your discounted products in one place. If you discount any of your products they will automatically appear in this category, saving you a lot of time and will also mean that your users will easily be able to find all of the sale items that you have listed. To ensure that you have this category active then head to ‘Manage Product Categories’, from here you will be able to make sure that the category is not hidden. When this is active it will appear in your list of categories automatically.
