Last modified: March 27, 2021
Sales are a great way for you to grow your business. Especially during quiet periods or when you’re close to the season end/beginning of the next season. Doing sales at these times is a great way for you to get rid of stock that is specific for the season that is ending and would not sell well during the next season.
Sales are also a good way to boost conversions, grow your business’ reach and introduce new customers to your excellent services and products. Most eCommerce stores will host at least one sale every year. Most have sales on certain products all the time.
One of the best ways to make sure that your customers convert when there is a sale on is to showcase the price difference between the non-sale and sale price. This can be done easily when there are no variants. When there are variants, you need to make certain adjustments to the process. In this article, we look at the process of adding a sale compare price element to your variants.
