Set expiry dates for product
It's extremely easy to set expiry dates for products. In the Inventory section of the Edit Product page of your store input fields will be added where you can select the type of expiry date (Best Before, Expiration Date, ...) and the date.
If stock is managed for the product you can even enter multiple expiry dates and the amount of products in stock for every date. This is very useful if you have products from different batches in store. Products with the oldest expiry date will be sold first.
Once a product is overdue, the customer can't place the item in his shopping cart. This behaviour can be customized for every type of expiry date.
Present expiry dates to the customer
The expiry dates can be presented to the customer on different occasions:
- On the product detail page while the customer is shopping
- On the cart and checkout page when the customer reviews the order
- In the confirmation email that the customer receives after placing the order
Quick overview of expiring products
The WP-Admin Products table can be filtered and ordered by the expiry date. This way the shop manager has a quick overview of the products that have expired, or are about to expire. The expiry date of overdue products will be displayed in bold red. Expiry dates of products that passed the best before date but that are still purchasable will be displayed in orange.
Change the behaviour of expiry rules
You can customize the behaviour of the different expiry rules.
For example if a product has an "Expiration date", the product can be purchased until 14 days before it expires while a product with a "Best Before date" can be purchased until 7 days after it expires.
