How To Boost Average Order Value with Upsells

WooCommerce one-click upsells or post-purchase upsells are upsells after the checkout. Once a customer enters their payment details and clicks ‘place order’ on the checkout page, you show them relevant upsell offers related to their recent purchase. They can add the offer to their order with a single click i.e., without re-entering their payment and billing details. In this post, I’ll show you how you can use WooCommerce one-click upsells to boost your average order value.

Why Our New Plugin Started at Version 0.1

When we re-launched EDD Bookings a few weeks back, we did so at version 0.1. This might not be the norm in the WordPress space as most plugin developers and owners tend to release at 1.0. There may be reasons for doing so, be it for development, marketing or anything else. In fact, WordPress itself has a version numbering system that even the Codex writers themselves admit is weird. Here’s a look at why we opted for a more structured approach. We chose to follow SemVer (Semantic Versioning) – a widely adopted standard for versioning that advocates the use of version...
