WooCommerce Product Availability by Date

Overview #

The WooCommerce Product Availability by Date feature lets you set the visibility and availability of products based on the configured date for purchases. You can customize the messages displayed on the front end to inform your customers about products’ availability.

You can use the following formats to configure the date range:

  • For single date range: DD-DD
    • For example 1-31 or 15-25
  • For multiple date ranges: DD-DD,DD-DD
    • For example 1-20,26-31 or 1-6,16-26
  • For non-availability:
    • For example setting “-” would mean the product(s) are unavailable for the specific month. Hence disabling the purchase of the product(s) for the specific month(s).
