Free and paid add-ons

As an online store owner, depending on the types of products you sell, you might want to offer free and paid add-ons to customers. This can help add more value to your existing products. Additionally, this is also useful for selling custom products, offering free gifts, or offering premium add-ons options with your products.

You can use the Booster Plus for WooCommerce plugin to create add-ons for your WooCommerce products on your online store. In this article, we’ll show you how you can create free and paid add-ons for your WooCommerce products in three different ways.

Here, we’ll show you how you can create free and paid add-ons for products in WooCommerce using Booster Plus’s WooCommerce Product Addons module.

#1. Offer product customization

Using the WooCommerce Product Addons module, you can let customers customize their products before adding them to their shopping cart. This means that customers will be able to add or remove customization options, which directly affects the final price of the product.

For example, if you sell apparel items on your online store, you can let customers add logos on t-shirts as add-ons. Once your customer uploads a logo, it will automatically add to the price of the t-shirt product.

This can help you add value to existing products by giving customers the option to go for a higher-priced, higher-value option. This also gives customers some control over the final price by selecting different add-ons.

Customers decide the final price which means that more people will be interested in buying from you. Additionally, it can incentivize the customer to spend more than they had originally planned to. By increasing the average order value, you can generate more profits.

Here’s how you can do this using Booster Plus’s WooCommerce Product Addons module:

Start by getting the Booster Plus for WooCommerce plugin and installing it on your WordPress site. Navigate to WooCommerce → Settings → Booster from the admin panel to access the different modules.

Select the Product Addons module under the Products section. You can select the checkbox next to the module to enable it. Once you’re done, click the Save changes button at the bottom of your screen to continue.

Scroll down to the Per Product Options section and select the checkbox next to Enable per Product Addons. This will add a meta box to each product’s edit page. Once you’re done, click the Save changes button to continue.

#2. Offer premium support

Offering premium support as an add-on option with your products is a great way to provide additional support to customers with their purchases. For example, you could offer 1 month VIP support, 3 Months VIP support, or 12 Months VIP support with products as add-ons.

This can be a great way to offer additional value to your customers with their purchases. It also ties your customer to your brand for a longer period of time which means you have more opportunities to make the customer more brand loyal. With customers purchasing add-ons with your products, you generate more revenue. Not only does this help add more value to your product but also helps improve customer retention.

#3. Offer free gift wrapping

Offering free add-ons with products in your WooCommerce store can be a great way to boost sales. For example, you can offer a free add-on option to wrap the purchased item in gift paper. This can offer additional value to your customers without charging them extra.

This can incentivize customers to buy from your store. Not only does this help boost sales but also attracts new customers and visitors to your WooCommerce store.
