I Just bought this plugin and worked out how to set the necessary corn job on Centos 7 with a minimal install . I hope this helps someone.
This is how i did it:
- go to directory /etc/cron.d
- make a new file and call it “drop-price-every-min”
- add this info below to the file:
/1 * * * * root curl http://yourwebsite.com/?drop-price-cron
- save and close the file
- you should get an email every minute if it worked
- if you got the email change the file and add the silent flag like this ( silent means it will not email you)
/1 * * * * root curl—silent http://yourwebsite.com/?drop-price-cron
- if it did not email you, there is something wrong.
Note there is a * character at the start of the code as in
*/1 * * * * root curl—silent http://yourwebsite.com/?drop-price-cron if i put this on one line the * is bring cut off, annoying.
Just to let you guys know i had to add this line of code in the init function to make the date time pickers work on my correct time here New Zealand: date_default_timezone_set(‘NZ’); Otherwise setting the start and end times get screwed up. this took me 5 hours to work out.
If you set properly timezone in your WordPress settings it works just fine.
Thanks, might be helpful to add that information to the help document. will try, BTW whats the best way to get the new price to be updated without having to reload the whole web page ?
You would have to do that with JS.
Hi, I just got changed from my CC card for this and you have billed me twice for
support: WooCommerce Drop / Raise Prices (6 months extended support)
Invoice: IVIP14188363 . Please put $5.63 back onto my CC card.
Envato handles all payments so you will have to contact their support.
Is it possible to add price history & price drop notification feature similar to this:
No, that’s not possible.
Hello, customer had an idea, if after dropping to the lowest price it automatically would start all over again. It’s possible to create this or it’s not in your project
right now we don’t plan to add that feature.
It’s normal ‘rise’ and ‘drop’ are not translated ?
No, all strings should be translated.
I don’t understand all the word are translated but just rise and drop don’t display correctly.have you an idea ?
Can you mail us your wp-admin url, admin login and FTP login so we can check this issue?
Not yet, please be patient, we will reply to your email.
I’ve just checked this issue and I cannot find where do you see untranslated drop/raise strings. Everything looks translated to me. Also noticed on one product that you did not set end date for price raise / drop, this has to be set.
Yes I know. Ok for me too I don’t understand why it’s not correctly display
Where exactly do you have that problem? What is not correctly displayed?
Can this plugin change prices during a certain time period each day and repeat for certain days during the week. For instance say a product is 20$ normally but on Tuesday and Thursday you want the price to lower to 12$ from 5pm to 9pm. Is that possible.
No, for that you can use scheduled sale option in WooCommerce.
that will only set it for a number of days. I don’t think that will function in the depth I want it to.
Scheduled sale does exactly what you described above. If you need something else please explain what do you need.
if a product is normally 20$ and you need that products’s price to reduce to say 12$ mon and wed from 5-9pm those days without having to go in and set it each time. the normal scheduled sale function in woocommerce would only set prices for the day/days you want then expire. It wouldn’t repeat.
Aha, well this plugin is not for that. See if you can find something like repeat scheduled sale.
can i set Raise Prices by category? let say valentines certain category price up for 10%
No, drop / raise price can be set only per product.
if a product has product add ons in addition to the variable product, can the price hike/decrease be applied on the add on cost also.
I can’t translate the countdown labels “Hours”, “Minutes”, “Seconds” into spanish.
I have edited PO and MO files and another texts are tranlated but not these. How can i do it?
I have even tried to modify some .js files with no success.
can you mail us your wp-admin url, admin login and FTP login and we will check it?
All sorted. There was countdown JS in your theme, so we renamed our function.
Thank you a lot
I have set the drop price in every 3 minutes, however the count down timer is always start count down from 4 minutes.
Another question, i follow the supporting document and added those counter code into function php. After that how can i call the counter out in home page?
It should be displayed allready, you just need to add it to functions.php
Replied via email. Please don’t send email and post comment. One way of contacting us should be enough
Hi support, i want to disable the auto fresh function. Kindly advice where to control this. Thanks.
hi support, second question,
i use the insert php plugin and would like to return the count down timer by the below script for specific product; so i can get my sale product timer to show-up on my home page banner or somewhere else. Could you help with this idea as i am not good in coding. Many thanks.
... just can’t post the script here…........
Please find in the below google word doc.
Hi, sorry, you will have to find someone to help you with coding. We don’t do coding and website developing as part of plugin support.
how about question 1, how to disable the auto refresh function?
In plugin settings just disable ajax check.
Hello, I need the miniature preview to automatically update the countdown when it reaches 0 just like on the product page…..
The countdown reaches 0 and you must click on the product to update the timer. http://www.okeibi.cl/desremate-2/
Hi, that is happening because you most likely did not setup cronjob. Please check documentation.
Hi, thanks for your response. Cronjob is set up ok. The timer works ok on the product page, the problem occurs in the page display type: [products ids = “1, 2, 3, 4, 5”]
Hi, that’s normal since this shortcode basically gives you product archive page where we don’t refresh anything to update timers. Timer isn’t showing on archive page at all (or on that shortcode), you need to refresh archive page to see new price. Timer is shown only on single product page where it is updated and refreshed.
Thanks, and will there be any way the timer can work on the archive page ?? I need it please..
Not without custom coding.
Or do I need this plugin to achieve this functionality? https://woocommerce.com/products/dynamic-pricing/
Our plugin does not work on nubmer of sales, so you will need something else. Drop / raise price is based only on time.
Yes, I totally understand yours is only based upon time.
My question is, can I use both your plugin and this number of sales plugin https://wordpress.org/plugins/raise-prices-with-sales-for-woocommerce/ at the same time?
Is your plugin compatible with using both style of plugins at the same time?
We didn’t test it with that plugin so I’m not 100% sure. But it should work.
I’ve purchase this plugin, But I confuse how to setup the cronjob for updating price (raise) at 9.00 AM every day. how to setup it time based and what should I put in command and PLEASE HELP ME ASAP
Also the counter not showed up on product page, PLEASE HELP AS SOON AS POSSIBLE
We’ve replied to your email. No need to post comment if you mailed us earlier.
Already ready it but I need support very detail, I can not do that by myself specially for cron job setting in cpanel.
You need to contact your hosting support to setup cronjob for you. Show them plugin documentation https://wpgenie.org/woocommerce-drop-prices/documentation/#installation
see attached image I sent by email
We have new ticketing support system https://support.wpgenie.org/ hopefully will enable us to provide better and faster support for all our clients. System is SSL enabled and you can send us safely sensitive info.
This is now default way to get support for all our items. You will need to have valid item purchase and “supported” badge to access it.
Hello. Does your plugin support the following scenario. For X amount of product quantity being sold the price will reduce Y$ or Y% until the price goes to Z. For example. A product costs 10$. After 5 qty being sold the next costumer will buy this product for 9$ and so on. Until the price goes to 5$. Or maybe you a have a different plugin for this job. Thank you.
Hi, no, our product works only with time, ie it can raise or drop price over a time period.
We have introduced ticket system https://support.wpgenie.org/ which requires valid support for item (you need to have green SUPPORTED badge). We just can’t support indefinitely users with one time purchase.
Note that users without support can download all new updates.
My client need following in his wooCommerce Store -
Price of the product will change in every 30 second. E.g. if an iphone price is showing $ 999 at 10:00 and after 30 second price will be changed randomly, it may be high or lower. Minimum and Maximum price should be set by admin in the backend.
All deals will run on timer basis like all deal will have timer under product image, on category page & detail page as well this timer will be manage by admin.
Is this possible with your plugin? Please let me know ASAP.
you will need to get your client to open ticket here https://support.wpgenie.org/
We have not yet purchased the plugin. We want confirm if this all is possible with your plugin or not? Please confirm
Minimum interval is 1 min. For rest check https://wpgenie.org/woocommerce-drop-prices/documentation/#setup and demo https://wpgenie.org/woocommerce-drop-prices/product-category/watch/
Countdown timers can be added to product archive page too as per FAQ item no 1 https://wpgenie.org/woocommerce-drop-prices/documentation/#faq
We want the price to increase or decrease randomly. Is this possible if not can it be customize? also can we reduce time to 30 sec
Not possible without custom coding.
Can you do the customization?
Please contact us via email for more details.
Is it possible to price drop in % (percentages) rather than in $
Hi, for now no. Only fixed amounts can be entered.
Is there any way to automatically relist the product to it’s original price after it has been purchased?
So if we have more than one item in stock, can a customer buy a product once it drops to a certain price and then the product will automatically start over and start a new auction?
Hi, no this is not possible without some significant modifications. You can set stock for product that drops / raise price.
Use, by you or one client, in a single end product which end users are not charged for. The total price includes the item price and a buyer fee.
