What’s better than let your customers decide how much they would like to spend? Think about it: whether they are purchasing a song or a book, the emotional attachment to that particular product could encourage them to spend more than the regular price you would expect. But think about the exact opposite: maybe offering something completely free to catch you users’ attention could be also a powerful marketing action so that they will decide freely to pay you up for something you would also give for free. WooCommerce Name Your Price will unchain you and your customers from fixed prices for your products: feel free to set it on the product you want and see how much your customers would like to spend for it!

Just Some of the Possibilities

Name Your Price for Variable Products

For example, a donation could be configured with $10, $20, and $50 variations plus a Name Your Own Price variation that allows the customer to chose his or her own level of giving.
Support for Product Bundles
The Product Bundles plugin (separate purchase) allows you to sell combos, simple kits, and product assemblies or simply offer a discount when items are purchased together. With Name Your Price support:
- Sell the entire bundle for whatever price the customer is willing to pay
- Sell the bundle with “per item” pricing and the total bundle price will be calculated once the Name Your Price item’s price is set. Note: “Per Item” pricing currently only works with simple products, but support for variable products is coming soon.
Let Subscribers Choose When to Pay
Selling subscriptions with WooCommerce Subscriptions (separate purchase)? Want to let your customers decide when they want to pay? Past versions of Name Your Price included support for subscriptions with a variable billing period and still work for existing subscriptions. In the current version, you now create a variable subscription with different billing periods as variations.
Create printable gift certificates by using the PDF Product Vouchers plugin
The PDF Product Vouchers plugin (separate purchase) connects your online business with your brick and mortar business and allows you customize and sell downloadable PDF vouchers for offline goods or service. Coupled with Name Your Price, customers can create vouchers for a value of their choosing, allowing them to create printable gift certificates that can be redeemed in person.
Creating a “Name Your Price”-enabled product is hardly any different from creating a regular product. Once you’ve created a product, simply tick the checkbox marked “Name Your Price” and you will be able to enter the optional suggested and minimum prices for your product (or a particular variation). The price input box will automatically be added. All the texts that your customer will see on the product page ( such as Add to Cart, Name Your Price, Suggested Price, etc.) can all be changed from the plugin’s options with no coding.
