Call for Price New Magento Extension Released - Hide Prices

Call for Price New Magento Extension Released - Hide Prices

In eCommerce, transparency is a critical success factor. What do we mean by transparency? The simplest way to explain it is that you must not withhold key information from your audience. For example, product attributes must be clearly stated, prices displayed prominently, and there should be no hidden taxes. Likewise, return and exchange policies must be communicated to the audience.

No doubt, store owners have a duty to display the product pricesso that customers can make an informed decision. However, there are several cases in which hiding the price is more desirable. In Magento 2, there’s no built-in functionality to hide product prices. In other words, you need a Magento 2 call for price extension. We’ll discuss about this later. Let’s first focus on why you need to hide prices.

Understanding the Need to Add a ‘Call for Price’ Button in Magento 2

There are several cases where you need to hide the price and replace it with a call for price button:

Customisable Products

If you offer products with customisation options, then there is no point in offering a fixed price. Instead, the price needs to be based on whatever customisation the customer orders.

High-Value Products

Similarly, if you are selling really high-value items such as antique items, there’s no point in offering a fixed price. In such cases, the price is based on the perceived value. Therefore, by replacing the price with ‘call for price’ option, you can negotiate with the user the right value of the product.

Differentiation Strategy

Carry out competitor research. You’ll find that every other store is displaying prices, offering discounts, and more. To set yourself apart from the competition, do something different – hide the prices. This can evoke curiosity among the customers and compel them to call you for price.

Imagine your customer’s eagerness when he finds no ‘price tag’ and ‘add to cart’ on your store’s product pages! Cash their eagerness by inviting them to contact for price by either inquiring at the customer service number or perhaps an email through the contact form that pops up as they click on the Call for Price button.

What will happen next? Provide the user with personalised information and this can boost your chances of converting them to a customer. Getting the customers engaged in conversation can also be beneficial for you in many ways. You can pitch multiple other products by identifying their needs.
