Setting up a price or plan

You can set a price for claiming a listing in 3 different ways: 1. Fixed price, 2. Pricing Plan powered by the Directorist Pricing Plans add-on, and 3. Pricing Plans powered by WooCommerce & Directorist WooCommerce Pricing Plans add-on. Choose the one you think best for your business.

You can choose a default global method of charging a user for claiming for a listing from Dashboard > Directorist Listings > Directorist Settings > Extensions Settings > Claim Listing and Set ‘Method of Charging‘ to one of the ‘Pricing Plans’,  ‘Claim for Free’, and ‘Set a Claim Fee’

New WooCommerce Product Type: Listing Pricing Plan

New WooCommerce Product Type: Listing Pricing Plan

Any listing pricing plan using this add-on is like adding a new type of WooCommerce Product called ‘Listing Pricing Plan’. As it is nothing but a WooCommerce product, therefore, the order of this product/pricing plan is handled by WooCommerce. What it means is that you will find all the orders of this pricing plan under WooCommerce > Orders instead of Directorist Listings > Order History.

Adding Plans

Adding a listing pricing plan using this add-on is very easy. Follow the steps below to add a pricing plan using WooCommerce and Directorist

  1. Go to WordPress Dashboard > Products and click “Add New“.
  2. Select Listing Pricing Plan from the Product Type select menu.
  3. Set a regular price (optionally a sale price) and check/set the features you want to offer for this plan and hit the publish button.
