Product Configurator for WooCommerce

Lýsing

The Product Configurator for WooCommerce allows you to use layers to produce instant visuals for your customers.

Give your customers a great experience, and make your life easy: no need to create many product variations with their images.

Instead, export your layers from Photoshop, a 3D render, or any other source, and allow the user to configure their product using those.

Easily add a product configurator to WordPress, with the plugin Product Configurator for Woo!

Features

  • Multiple steps: Selling complex products? Split your configurator in different steps to make the process easier to understand for your customers.
  • Price per option: Charge an additional price for each option that requires it (requires an add-on).
  • Form fields: Let your user input data such as text or numbers, as well as send files with their configuration (requires an add-on).
  • Calculate complex prices with custom formulas (requires Extra-price and Form fields add-ons)

Did exaxtly what i needed and the support from Marc is great. He responds quickly and with either a direct fix or a workaround if I need something that not quite so ‘out of the box’

I’ve tried a bunch of different paid and free plugins, this one is by far the best for me. I will add the price add-on soon. Amazing how many options the free version has. I did have to increase my php memory limit a bit, with the default 32M, uploading new images was no longer possible.

I was exploring different options for implementing a product configurator and this really hits the bullseye. The basic functionalities are great, there are options to upgrade for more fine tuned options and Mark is very quick ad addressing the questions on the forum.
