WooCommerce – How to Improve Sales on Poor Selling Products

Let’s face it! Sometimes it’s hard to sell some products and that’s a problem because the more time the products stay without getting sold, the fewer possibilities we have to sell them out. It gets even worse when we have hundreds of products with poor sales.

However in this article we want to show you four easy tips you can take into account to improve sales on those poor selling products by using WP Sheet Editor.

It definitely helps you save lots of hours.

    • Field key: Total Sales
    • Operator: <
    • Value: 10, to search the products with less than 10 sales.
