Hi, I can’t display the countdown timer on the product page. It is showing only on shop page.. Is there a shortcode to use to show the countdown? Thanks

It is selected both pages but it doesn’t work on product page. Here it is, let me know as soon as you can please :)

Dal sito suppongo tu sia italiano, quindi ti rispondo direttamente in italiano :)

Analizzando la pagina non sembrano esserci errori javascript. Quindi il problema potrebbe dipendere dal template utilizzato per renderizzare la pagina prodotto. Forse non chiama tutti le action di default utilizzate da WooCommerce per renderizzare la pagina. Cosi facendo il mio plugin non è grado di “agganciarsi” e quindi iniettare il template contenente il timer.

Tuttavia per capirlo dovrei effettuare un analisi approfondita ma mi servirebbe un accesso admin. Sarebbe possibile averne uno? in caso positivo, inviami un messaggio privato con le credenziali di accesso (per inviare un messaggio: clicca sul mio nome e quindi utilizza il box che trovi in basso a destra).

Perfetto! Inviato in privato grazie mille ;)

Hey, i wanted to ask if it is possible to have a discount like: buy two and get 10% discount BUT apply the discount to the product with the lowest price. Greets

no unfortunately is not possible to achieve that goal with the WCPS plugin.

Hello, there is a way to display only one value in the variable product only when it has no variation. To not appear twice before the pre-sale value?

what exactly do you mean with variable product with no variation? in this case shouldn’t it be a simple product?


lenzweb Purchased

I sell t-shirts, so I have variation in size and not price. I would like the front end to display only once the value without discount and not two as the plugin does today, I believe it is a simple conditional to do

ok thank youk, now it is perfectly clear. If you send me a private message (click on my name then use the low-right box) I can send you the new plugin update that fixes this issue.
Thank you for reporting!

Can the pre sale set only by time not day and time? Ex: on 28 Dec, i want to add product on presale only between 9h to 10h Am

as you can see from the demo site:
user: demo
pass: demo

and in the following image: you can set a specific start/end date for a presale.

I have tried different settings… What I’m trying to do is have it so they don’t pay until the expiration date. I’m using it as a league registration form. Before we were charging their cards then not getting enough people and then having to refund their money. I want it so they signup to pay then we send them a “pay now” email on the expiration date and they login to site, open their cart and pay.

I thought from reading the description I would be able to do this.

Plus you have some spelling errors….

In product page… Activate pre-sale / time offert

In documentation… Another useful option is the Pre-pay/Deopist option. Enablig this option

Nice.. however, that won’t work for me. I have other registrations, tickets, events and soon clothing and a POS system that I need to charge immediately. I guess I need to find something else… How about instead of refunding my money, can you switch me to your “WooCommerce Customers Manager” software instead? Only a $0.75 difference.

Unfortunately there isn’t such a mechanism and refund cannot be granted for a feature that a software never claimed to have.

Never mind on switching… I had another idea for using this plugin.

Hi Vanquish, The plugin itself is great but need some improvement, above all about stylization, with a bit of time I’ll send you a list of suggestions.

I write you because there are a couple of things that I need to address urgently and cannot sort out by myself. 1) when need to show the countdown to end of offer, in product page this is automatized but in product list it doesn’t works and neither there is a shortcode to visualize it, so my question is: it’s is a bug? there is anything that I can do? is there a shortcode that I can use to show it when and where I need? 2) it doesn’t take traslations, in my case italian one (the translation is terrible but, in any case, it doesn’t even works)

I would appreciate a quick answer, as I have to deliver the work on friday. Thanks in advance.


I further investigated and isolated the problem with a theme issue but cannot find/solve, could you, kindly help?

Be se sei italiano, potremmo cominicare direttamente in italiano :)

Quando dici “product list” intendi la pagina shop? In teoria bastebbe sceglire l’opzione Both in Display countdown timer to end datetime on. In caso tu lo abbia già fatto, potrebbe significare che il tema non richiama tutte le action necessarie durante il rendering dei prodotti nella pagina shop. In tal caso il plugin non puo “agganciarsi” e quindi renderizzare il timer. Mi sai dire se il messaggio Shop page message è invece visualizzato correttamente?

Purtroppo in caso sia un issue del tema non sono in grado di darti una mano.

Per quanto riguarda la traduzione, ho aggiornato il .po file. Se mi mandi un messaggio privato (clicca sul mio nome e poi usa il box in basso a dresta) posso inviarti la versione aggiornata del plugin.

P. S.
Il file .po va editato con un Po editor tipo . una volta tradotte le stringe salva e il programma genererà un file .mo. Quest’ultimo file va salvato deltro la cartella languages dentro la cartella del plugin.

First of all, many thanks for your really quick answer :) I’m italian but comments can be usefuls for other peoples, so better to use english, here :) I’ll write you through your profile, Thanks a lot.

Presale quick question. Is it possible to charge a small amount at the order (like 15% of price) and then the rest when the poduct is available ? I’ll be interested.

No unfortunately the plugin hasn’t such a feature.
However you can use the Deposit with coupon deduction option (you can read more on the plugin description page).
It allows you to charge for a small charge your customers when purchasing the product during the pre-sale period. The plugin will send them a coupon that lately can be used when purchasing the item at full price after the pre-sale period.

You can try the plugin and its feature using the demo site:
user: demo
pass: demo
to see if it fits your needs and expectations :)

Hi, i’m intersted in the plugin, and wanted to know please, can i just set and expiring date for the product? i mean, that it won’t be shown on the store after that date, maybe move it to be a draft automaticly Thanks

to that you have just to select the Item will expire after expiration date in the End period options select box:

The plugin has also a full live demo site:
user: demo
pass: demo
Where you can test that feature to see if fits your needs and expectations before purchasing :)


I can’t do work this plugin.. I don’t know why but in the demo, it’s was ok but not on my website. Can you help me?

It could be due to a 3rd party interference that makes the plugin to not properly work.

Can you give me more details about the “it doesn’t work” issue? which feature are you trying to use? If you send me a private message (click on my name then use the low-right box) I can try do some live debug to the plugin to find which is the interference.

Hello! I’m wondering if the plugin uses meta-filed or taxonomy to write DB, because I want to work with “Excel-Like Product Manager for WooCommerce” plugin to manage the products and set all countdown timers and pre-sales offers. King regards.

yes all the data are saved in product meta field.

Just edit the WCPS_Product.php you find in the classes\com folder and go to the save_all_options function. There you will find the list of metafiled used.

Note that the wcps_data field is a serialized array that contains most of the pre-sale settings. To know its structure just read a wcps_data of any product and print it via wcps_var_dump() or if you are using PhpMyAdmin to browse data, paste its content in this site:

Ok, thanks so much!


Great plugin and has loads of great features. But I don’t need to use them all just yet.

I am trying to Set up preorder for products so that it comes out on say 24th April for example. The button says preorder, no change is price is needed. When 24th April arrives is there a way for the product to automatically go from preorder to a normal product? Or do I have to change it manually?


Thank you :)

Yes, for that purpose you can use the End period options and select the Item will be purchaseable with its normal price after expiration date. Set as Expiring date the 24th April:

In this way once the 24th comes, the product will switch back to normal automatically :)

P. S.
If you have enjoyed my plugin please also consider to leave the 5 stars, I would really really appreciate! (to leave a rating: go to your profile page, click on “Downloads” and from there you can rate to your purchases)

Hi! I think your plugin is really great! But I have one little issue: when one of my products has expired, the “add to cart” button is still there, so I can purchase it, as you can see here:

What am I doing wrong? Is there any incompatibility with my theme (Imperio Theme by upperinc)? Or with my “product list pro” plugin?

Thank you so much

It could depend on a plugin misconfiguration or due to the fact your theme or (most likely) that plugin is not triggering the woocommerce_loop_add_to_cart_link action while rendering the add to cart buttons when listing the products.

For what concerns the plugin configuration make sure that:
  1. You have enabled the checkbox under the Expired product managment in the plugin options:
  2. In the product configuration, under the End period options section you have selected the Item will expire after expiration date:

For what concers the List pro plugin, you should ask its developer if it is triggering all the needed woocommerce hooks (or which is the action that is triggered instead) when rendering the add to cart buttons. The Pre-sale plugin hooks to the woocommerce_loop_add_to_cart_link to remove the add to cart buttons for the expired products on the shop page.

If you send me a private message with an admin access (click on my name then use the low-right box), I can do some tests to see if I discover which (if any) action is triggered by that plugin when rendering the add to cart buttons for those items on the list. It this way I can see if it is possible to extend the plugin to grant compatibility to it.

It stopped working with Woocommerce 3.0. In the shopping cart the amount does not change to the promotional value of pre-sale.

Which version are you running? Can you try updating to the latest 7.0 version you can download from its codecanyon page? Thank you.


lenzweb Purchased

Before contacting I did the update because I thought it would solve the problem but it did not solve. It generates the promotional value in the shopping cart but the value is equal to the total value of the part

Thank you for reporting the issue. Are you experiencing this bug only for variable products, right? Could you send me a private message (click on my name then use the low-right box). I have a new version that shoud fix it.

Hello. Great add-on, however I’m having an issue with when the “Price during period”. When this is set to a sale price during time period, and an item is added to the cart, the sale price shows, but in the “Subtotal” it’s showing & charging the regular price. basically, it does not update the shopping cart pricing.

Please advise.

Thanks for the very usful app!


I’ve received your private email and I’ve answered to it. Let’s continue talking via email. Thank you.

Hi, great plugin! Is there a possibility to create this case?:

I want to motivate my clients to promote the products. So i would like to set goals to give them discounts.


I place a product online in pre order that has a price of 40 dollar; But when there are 10 pre orders they all get the discount of 5% because i get the same discount from my seller. So i set goals like if there are 10 per orders, than, if there are 20 pre orders then etc etc

I would like to get a system where my clients help me sell the pre orders in order to get a discount theme selves.

no unfortunately the plugi hasn’t any feature for incremental discount based on past orders. However yours is a nice suggestion, I’ll see if it will be possible to implement in a future release! I’ll let you know in case of news! :)

Hi! I has buy and download plugin. But when I active, it message error and not active. Please help me.

Fatal error: Can't use function return value in write context in C:\wamp\www\Fivimart\wp-content\plugins\woocommerce-pre-sale\classes\com\WCPS_Product.php on line 321

This error is due the usage of an outdated version of PHP. Note that Wordpress and WCPS plugin (as reported in the description page) both require a minimum 5.5 version.
Could you confirm that you are using at least that version? to check go to WooCommerce -> System status.
If not please update and that error will be gone.

Updating php is usually a very simple operation in any web shared server. Go to the admin panel, search for some kind of advanced configuration and in that section you can switch the php version to the latest.
