WooCommerce Dynamic Pricing and Discounts – Selling Digital products in conjunction with Physical versions

We have John who is keen on starting an online education portal. He has a list of courses in web designing and decides to use WordPress as his content management system. Once, the course is enrolled by the customer, he plans to send him/her a hard-copy of the respective reference book. As a first step, he creates a virtual product with the course name. To ship the book (using CanadaPost) with every order, he has to manually create a label and then proceed with the shipping. This seems painful and cumbersome and somewhat tricky for him to overcome.

Smart Approach to his Rescue!

John figures out that he can fulfill the order using two separate products of XAdapter:

  1. Canada Post Shipping Plugin with Print Label for WooCommerce
  2. Dynamic Pricing and Discounts Plugin for WooCommerce

John achieves the solution in a few simple steps as below:

Step 1: The online course is marked as a virtual product.

Step 2: The book is marked as a simple product.

Step 3: Using XAdapter Dynamic Pricing Plugin, create ad rule under “Buy and Get Free (Offers)” as shown in the screenshot below:

This helps John to automate shipping of the book when the online course is selected. So if a customer selects the product “Course” in the cart, then automatically, one quantity of the product “Book” will be added to the cart.

Cool! Isn’t it?

So now, the customer can easily checkout with these two products in the cart.
Step 4: Once, the order is confirmed, John can conveniently generate a label for the product “Book” using the CanadaPost plugin as shown below:

Note : The virtual product is automatically skipped by the Canada Post plugin during label generation.

Now, you can easily handle a combination of these products in a seamless fashion.
“Where there is a will there is a way!”
