Savings trigger is used to show savings (in absolute number and percentage ) on discounted products.

Basic Setup

You need to have this basic setup to configure the ‘Savings’ trigger.

Step #1: Activate the Savings trigger

Go to WooCommerce > Settings > Sales Triggers: XL Plugins

Hover your cursor over the Savings trigger and hit the ‘Activate’ button to activate it.

You’ll see the status change from ‘Deactivated’ to ‘Activated’.

Step #2: Set the Sale Price for the Product

Go to WooCommerce > All Products > Edit Product

Then, set the sale price of the product.

Now that you’ve set the sale price of the product, you’ll be able to see the Savings trigger in action.

Here’s how it appears:

Message Format

You can display savings in three different formats using merge tags.

{{savings_value_percentage}} displays savings in both price and percentage. For example: $10 (33%)

{{savings_value}} displays savings in price. For example: $10

{{savings_percentage}} displays savings in percentage. For example: 33%

Use these merge tags to display custom messages like:

You Save: 10% ($15)
Buy Now & Save $15.
Get 15% off on this product


1. Modify text for Savings using merge tags.

2. Choose text color
