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.

Good Luck.

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

thanks you

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.

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.

No, that’s not possible.


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.


Sent. Greetings

All sorted. There was countdown JS in your theme, so we renamed our function.

Thank you a lot :)

Hi Supoprt,

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, 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’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.

Your plugin looks great! I need a function where the price goes up by each day, and also by the number of sales. I have found this other plugin for the price increase based upon sales: https://wordpress.org/plugins/raise-prices-with-sales-for-woocommerce/ Could I combine this plugin with yours? I want to increase the price by 1c per day, and by 1c per XXX sold. Will this work with both of these plugins? thanks for making this! :) Barnaby

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.

Already ready it but I need support very detail, I can not do that by myself specially for cron job setting in cpanel.

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.

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.
