Discontinued Product Stock Status for WooCommerce allows you to list a product as ‘Discontinued’ in your WooCommerce catalog, optionally write a custom message to guide them and thus helping you recover lost sales and SEO traffic in the process.

By default, WooCommerce only allows 2 Stock statuses – ‘In Stock’ and ‘Out of Stock’ . So, store owners usually put a product in ‘Out of Stock’ status even when the product is actually discontinued or will no longer be available in future.
Or they would just delete the product page. However, either of these actions are a loss-loss for store owners and customers. When a product is ‘out of stock’ the customer is made to believe that product will be back in stock in some time when in reality the product has been discontinued and will never be available for purchase in future. Similarly, if a store owner deletes the product page then all the SEO traffic that product page was getting is lost as the product page no longer exists. Either way, it ends up in lost revenue for the store owner.

So, to solve this problem this plugin adds a custom stock status ‘Discontinued’ so that store owners no longer have to use ‘Out of Stock’ status for discontinued products and allows them to correctly inform and guide the customers easily.

  • Supports almost all product types – Simple, Variation, Grouped, Virtual and Downloadable.
  • Allows store owners to set a Global message for Discontinued products.
  • Allows store owners to set product specific messages after setting discontinued stock status.
  • Allows store owners to set Variation-level specific messages for discontinued variations of a variable product.
  • Store owners can also set a message on a Product level for variations & Grouped products.

Recover Lost Sales
Now no longer lose sales because of a miscommunication with customers. Show them the correct status for the discontinued products, guide them and convert them.

Don’t lose SEO Traffic
You have put a ton of money and effort into upping your SEO game and removing a product page is shooting yourself on foot.
Now with this plugin, you can show correct status for the discontinued products and avoid losing the SEO traffic.
