Let Customers Save a Product to Purchase Later on WooCommerce

- written by

If a client comes to you and raves about other sites that allow customers to save a product for purchase later, here is one option for you.

Give Customers the Chance to Save It For Later

With the Save for Later for WooCommerce plugin, it is easy to offer this and still have control over what products can are be saved for later.

The Basic Settings

First you can choose between logged-in or guest users—or both— as far as when the link will show up on the product page. Also, you can control how long to display the option for guest users.

Then you can fine-tune it for when it will be displayed for products, categories and user roles. You can also add custom CSS here.

There are several options for messages you can customize, including the Save for Later link.

In addition, you can customize the labels.

Once you have it all set up, when someone adds an item to the cart, a Save for Later link appears below the product’s. name.

If I click on it, this is what I get. And if I go back and click on the cart, it will still be there.

Or perhaps, I left and came back a bit later, added another item to the cart? Now I have the reminder and option to still purchase it. You will notice I have the option to move it to the cart or remove it.

Viewing What Has Been Saved for Later

The site owner can see what has been saved for later to give you insights into customer behavior.
