You just received that “Prices Updated!” email from your Dhru Fusion direct source supplier. Now you wish that there was some way to automatically update the WooCommerce Product price.

You need to do this for all of the related unlock services on your WordPress site at once.

The StockUnlocks plugin for WordPress has transformed your website into an automated cell phone and mobile unlocking machine.

StockUnlocks converts standard WooCommerce Products into remote unlock services. Simply import services from your Dhru Fusion supplier’s website.

Prices for unlocking services change often. You need to reflect these price changes on your website. Otherwise, you will lose money or even customers.

An automatic, scheduled process can update the WooCommerce Product price. However, you would need to upgrade to the StockUnlocks Pro plugin for this. But, what if you’re not ready to upgrade to StockUnlocks Pro, what can you do?

StockUnlocks Basic/Pro: Updating Unlocking Product Prices

You’re using the StockUnlocks Basic or Pro plugin and you need to update the WooCommerce Product price when your Dhru Fusion supplier’s price changes. Do this:

  • Make a note of the unlock service(s) to be updated (based on the notification from your supplier)
  • Display the current list of unlock services from the specific supplier via “StockUnlocks > Import Services”
  • Select and import the unlock service(s) in order to update the existing services on your website

Make a note of the unlock services you would like to update. Then, follow the detailed steps below to complete the process.

Enable Price Updating for Unlock Service Products

Prices are automatically adjusted when WooCommerce Products have the “Remote Service” Product category enabled.

Time to enable and configure an unlock service to automatically adjust its price. Make this happen when the corresponding service price changes with your Dhru Fusion supplier:

Step 1: Access your WordPress Dashboard and Click on Products > All Products

Step 2: Find the unlock service that needs to be enabled for automatic price adjusting

Step 5: Scroll down until you see the “Auto Adjust Price”drop-down list.

  • Disabled = No automatic price adjusting will take place.
  • Custom = Automatic price adjusting will take place based on the values found in the “Custom price multiplier” directly below.
  • Global = Automatic price adjusting will take place.

However, the price adjustment will be based on the values found in “StockUnlocks > Plugin Options: Price Adjustment Option”.

Step 7: Enter your desired “Custom price multiplier” in the appropriate field(s)

Note: Despite the labeling “Auto Adjust Price”, the StockUnlocks Basic plugin will not perform scheduled, automatic price adjustments in the background like the StockUnlocks Pro plugin.

When your Dhru Fusion supplier’s prices change and if you’ve enabled the Auto Adjust Price feature, your related unlock service prices will automatically update the WooCommerce Product price for you.

Manually Update the WooCommerce Product Price

If you’re using the StockUnlocks Basic plugin, then you have to manually update the WooCommerce Product price via the “Import Services” section.

Now that everything is in place for making price adjustments, let’s move on to making this happen if you’re using the StockUnlocks Basic plugin.

Step 6: Click “Import”

What happens if you select an unlock service Product that is not already in your website? Your website will automatically import the service.

Therefore, the message will read as follows: “SUCCESS - Service(s): 1 imported, 0 updated.”

Using this method, a single unlock service may be updated or multiple services can be updated at once if more than one are checked when you click “Import”.

Benefits of Automatic Product Price Updating

Having the ability to update the WooCommerce Product price by a set value when the supplier’s prices change is a valuable feature when you’re unlocking phones as a business. This feature is especially useful when you’re managing many services across multiple Dhru Fusion direct source suppliers.
