Using the Sold Out Products Widget Add-on with WooCommerce
In the next WooCommerce WordPress plugin add-on guide, we will show you how to install and implement the Sold Out Products add-on, which allows you to show customers which products are sold out more easily when they visit your website.
Step 1) On the Dashboard, head to ‘WooCommerce’ and click on ‘Add-ons’ from the dropdown.
Step 2) From the Add-ons section, click on ‘Free’ to bring up the list of free add-ons, and then click on ‘Sold Out Products’ from the list provided.
Step 3) This will direct you to the WordPress.org plugin page for ‘Sold Out Products’. Give the details a read-through before clicking ‘Download’, which will send a copy of the plugin to your Downloads folder in the form of a .zip file.
Step 4) Head back to the Dashboard of your website and choose ‘Plugins’, then ‘Add New’. From the next page, hit ‘Upload’ and then ‘Choose File’, and find the .zip file for your new plugin and click on ‘Install Now’ to get the ball rolling.
Step 5) Now that the plugin has installed, click on ‘Activate Plugin’ to complete the process.
Step 6) Head to ‘Appearance’ on the left-hand sidebar of your Dashboard, and choose ‘Widgets’. From the list, scroll down and find ‘WooCommerce Sold Out Products’. You can now click and drag it to the sidebar of your choice, and it will show up wherever you have saved it.
Step 7) Below is an example of how the Sold Out Products add-on looks once the widget has been moved into the sidebar.
