Final Thoughts on WooCommerce Group Buy and Deals
If you want to add group buy functionality to your WordPress site, WooCommerce Group Buy and Deals is a simple way to do that.
The developer has intentionally kept things simple, leaving out more advanced features like volume-based discounts (e.g. the prices get cheaper as more people buy). That’s not a negative – just pointing this out, in case you want to set up more complicated rules.
All the features worked exactly as I expected when I played around with them on my test site, and it has all the core functionality that you need to start offering group buy deals at your WooCommerce store.
So, if you want to create your own Groupon clone, or any other type of group purchasing site, give this one a look:
