Take advantage of traffic to products you no longer want to sell

Our plugin allows you to set up alternative products and redirect potential customers with just a few clicks.

Satisfy customer interest by offering alternative products

You can offer automatic alternatives to prospects or manually select your own.

Customize excluded product page and don’t lose conversions

You can easily change all the content on the excluded product page. Including design.

A good solution is to create an excluded product page with information about why you no longer recommend this product to your customers

If you are a dropshipper, you are bound to run into a situation where the portfolio of products you sell includes products whose quality is not up to your standards. The problem is that you usually come across these products long after your e-shop has been launched. As a rule, you will be notified of frequent customer refunds or product complaints for various minor and major defects.

The question is how to resolve the situation of products that you do not want to sell so that you do not lose traffic from these products or purchases. The worst option is to delete the product. Deleting a product without redirecting it to another product or information page will result in the display of a 404 page. This very often leads to a direct exit from your site without conversion. When redirected to another product, the customer usually does not know why they have been redirected and may at least feel confused.

If you want to get traffic from products you don’t want to sell for various reasons without losing potential conversions, a good solution is to create an excluded product page with information about why you no longer recommend this product to your customers. At the same time, you should offer potential leads alternative products to replace the original product.

Excluded Product plugin allows you to easily, quickly and automatically change the pages of products that you do not want to sell for any reason. Including design and the ability to customize content as well as an alternative offer on specific products.

Take advantage of traffic to products you no longer want to sell

Getting traffic from search engines is challenging. SEO optimization is a long-term process. Therefore, it is a great pity if you delete products that you do not plan to sell and do not use their potential traffic. The excluded products plugin allows you to set product alternatives in just a few clicks. You won’t lose customers and save conversions.

Every dropshipper deals with this situation. Poor quality products are a common part of the portfolio. They have a negative impact on the overall perception of the brand and need to be disposed of sensibly. Ideally, you should explain the reason to your customers (you will gain their trust) and offer them alternatives (for the next action). Excluded Products plugin allows you to do all this.

With the Excluded Products plugin, you can turn any product that you no longer want to sell, for whatever reason, into a source of traffic for alternative products.

You can offer alternative products to visitors of a product you no longer want to sell without losing the conversion. You can choose from related products, up-sell or cross-sell products.

Satisfy customer interest by offering alternative products

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.

Auto alternatives

You can automatically set up alternative products for all your products. You can choose from 3 categories – related products, upsell products and cross-sell products. You can also change them manually for specific products.

What people are saying about Excluded Products

“I discovered several products in my product catalog that I simply did not want to sell. However, these products had good traffic according to Google Analytics. So I was looking for a solution to redirect this traffic to other more suitable alternatives. The excluded products plugin does exactly what I needed.”


on Excluded products

“Plugin Excluded Products is perfect. The authors have thought of almost everything. It allows not only automatic creation of pages for products I no longer want to sell, but also individual changes to some products that require it. Design settings via CSS variables I was worried about at first. But it’s easy.”


on Excluded products

“I didn’t know that deleting products I didn’t want to sell was not a good solution. My SEO specialist told me through a 404 monitoring tool that some products are still indexed and getting traffic that it would be a shame not to use. He recommended a solution from ThisPlugin. Everything works perfectly.”


on Excluded products

“I came across this plugin by accident. Through Facebook I heard about a collection of plugins for dropshippers from ThisPlugin. I was interested in what they had to offer and so I came to their website. I didn’t know anything like this existed. I was thinking about how to deal with products that are often claimed and refunded. And this is the perfect way. The plugin is easy to set up and works exactly the way I wanted it to.”
