Let us See what is a Sale tag and how to enable it with our Discount Rules Plugin.
What is a Sale Tag ?
Simply put, WooCommerce shows a Sale badge (a.k.a, Sale tag), when your product has both
- Regular Price
- Sale Price
In the above image,
- Regular Price is $10
- Sale Price is $5
As you can see, the Sale price is lower than the Regular price. So WooCommerce treats this product as on SALE!. It shows a SALE badge on top of the product image.
By default, WooCommerce only shows a TEXT.... i.e., SALE!
How to enable Sale Badge in WooCommerce Discount Rules
Please go WooCommerce -> Woo Discount Rules -> Settings -> Price rules tab
Show Sale Badge on product Page:
Set this to YES, if you would like the SALE! badge to show on your product pages.
Customize Sale Tag/Badge
Since Woo Discount Rules version 1.7.7, you have the option to customize the "text" on the SALE! Badge.
The default style supported by WooCommerce is
You are however free to change the text
or even add a HTML snippet for more advanced customizsation.
IMPORTANT!: Change/customize the HTML elements only you know what you are doing.
My storefront used to have the discount shown on the Sale badge. Why I could not do that now?
The Sale Badge is usually a static text. WooCommerce by default only displays a static text: Sale!
However, some theme authors customize this text within their themes to show a discount percentage or amount.
This is achieved by them through the following calculation
Regular Price - Sale Price = Discount Amount (or a percentage)
However, when using a dynamic pricing plugin like Woo Discount Rules, the discount is based on the rules.
An Example Scenario:
Buy 5 or more products, get 10% off.
In this case, the 5% discount is eligible ONLY when a customer adds 5 quantities to cart.
But if we show a Sale Badge with 5% discount on it, customer will MISUNDERSTAND and will look forward to get 5% discount even when he purchases 1 quantity. But that is not the condition.
If you tell your customer you are NOT eligible for discount for 1 quantity, you will disappoint your customer and lose the sale :-(
That is the reason why we do not display a discount percentage or amount inside the Sale badge. Our plugin will just show the default Sale badge text (Sale!).
