A quick and simple plugin adds a new option for On Sale to the drop-down menu in shop category and archive pages in Woocommerce. Strangely, it’s not an option by default but can easily be added.
Woocommerce is a great eCommerce platform for WordPress. It has lots of options in the standard install but there are some things that are missing. These can improve sales and user satisfaction with your Woocommerce store.
One of those is the ability to highlight your sales items in the category listing pages. The drop-down sort by filter has a number of options. These include:
- price highest to lowest
- price lowest to highest
- name A-Z
- name Z-A
Other options are also available. Strangely on option not there by default is sort by Sale. This is a popular sort filter for many people. This Woocommerce plugin fixes that issue.
