I would like to be able to encourage sales by showing a slashed out red color price and also show the new updated sale price. I’ve noticed that if people see what the item usually costs and then see it’s current price, they are more likely to buy.
Is there any way to add something like this in my individual product details so that both prices will show up when I list the product?

I am in the process of adding an option that will allow you to specify a price that will be slashed out. I should have something ready in a day or two.January 23, 2011 at 3:20 pm #28225
Thank you so much! You’re amazing
Do I need to download an updated version of the plugin to get this feature? If so, please remind of the link to get the update.

Hi, the feature has been already added. You should be now able to specify an “Old Price” (which will be slashed out) of the product in the “Additional Product Details” section. When you fill in the “Old Price” value in the product configuration, the plugin will automatically show it as slashed out price.January 24, 2011 at 1:54 pm #28227
Thanks for making the update…however, I am using “wp_estore_fancy2” product display…so the update isn’t showing on my products.

Hi Mark. I’m a new eStore user and I just had to do this yesterday.
Just add a bit of html before the Add To Cart button:
<span style="color:red">Sale: $5</span></p>
The del tag makes a strikethrough.January 25, 2011 at 9:02 pm #28229
Thanks for the code…but I’m not sure where to put the code?
You said to put the code before the “Add to Cart” button…but where is the code for that?

You can place that code in the Product description section (this section can take HTML code) which will appear before the add to cart button. The issue with Fancy 2 is that it doesn’t have a lot of space for the price field which is why I couldn’t add the normal strike through price in the display.January 26, 2011 at 2:25 pm #28231
Looks pretty good. Just so other readers know…this code when entered in the product description actually adds a black text price that is slashed out and a new sale price that is in red. This code, when entered in the product description is placed in the product description and does not effect the fancy 2 price.
Thanks for the code
