Discontinued products allow you to redirect traffic from out-of-stock products to alternatives and retain potential customers
Retain visitors who would otherwise leave. Offer them valuable alternatives instead of out-of-stock but well-indexed products. It’s a win-win for you and your customers.
FREE solution that captures your traffic and turns it into profit.
It is important to inform the customer why the product is no longer available. It is also important to offer suitable alternatives.
It is common practice for e-shop owners to delete products that have been out of stock for a long time. This is a very unfortunate solution. Almost every product is indexed by search engines and brings traffic to the store. At worst, deleting them results in a 404 page and potential leads leaving the site. At best, the visitor is redirected to a different product, but does not know why.
The solution is to use product traffic to win a customer. It is important to inform the customer why the product is no longer available. It is also important to offer suitable alternatives. Such a solution leads to full utilisation of traffic, customer retention on the site and higher conversion of products you no longer sell.
The Discontinued Products plugin allows you to easily, quickly and automatically change the pages of long-term unavailable products, including design and the ability to customise content, as well as an alternative offer for specific products.
Capitalize on traffic from products that have been unavailable for a long time
Getting traffic from search engines is a challenge. SEO optimisation is a long-term process. Therefore, it would be a shame to delete products that have been out of stock for a long time and not use their potential traffic. The discontinued products plugin allows you to set up product alternatives in just a few clicks. You won’t lose customers and you’ll save on conversions.
The correct use of products that are not available for a long time is very important in terms of search engine optimisation. Every indexed product can bring traffic. If you delete it and do not redirect the product, you will not only lose traffic, but also send a bad signal to the search engines. This is because a 404 page will be displayed instead of the product.

With the Discontinued Products plugin, you can turn any product that has been out of stock for a long time into a source of traffic for alternative products.
You can offer alternative products to visitors to a product that has been out of stock for a long time and not lose the conversion. You can choose from related products, upsell or cross-sell products.
Offer alternative products to satisfy customer interest
People come to your site with a clear interest. They want to buy the product they are looking for. Explain why you no longer sell that product and offer them suitable product alternatives. You will not lose customers, on the contrary, you can motivate them to spend even more.
You can automatically set up alternative products for all your products. You can choose from 3 options – related products, upsell products and cross-sell products. You can also change them manually for specific products.
The override feature allows you to set different alternative products for specific products. By selecting a specific category or even the products themselves.
Customise the discontinued product page and don’t lose conversions
Customising a product you no longer want to sell has a huge impact on your next conversion. Not only do you need to explain to customers why you are no longer selling this product, but you also need to direct them to other suitable alternatives. Our plugin will help you to quickly and easily optimise your product page and not lose conversions from product traffic.

What people are saying about Discontinued Products
*Reviews are not verified
“I had no idea that products that have not been available for a long time should not be deleted. Probably the ignorance of a newbie. This site has shown me the benefits of redirecting visitors from such a product to suitable alternatives. Thank you, you have saved me a lot of customers.”
“I have been looking for a way to improve my business for a long time. Gradually, I went through various methods and tactics and learned about the possibilities of using long-term unavailable products. And I also found your plugin. It is easy to use. It automates some things, but still brings the ability to customize specific products. It suits me perfectly.”
“We use several of your plugins in all of our e-commerce solutions. The discontinued plugin is one of them. I don’t understand at all why this feature is not a native part of Woocommerce.”
“I am an SEO specialist. I help my clients to optimize their shops. An important part of this is using traffic from discontinued products. I used to use a plugin from another developer. Now I use your plugin. I was convinced by the quality of your solution, the ease of use and especially your plugin manager“.
