What customers say

This is the only plugin I've found that handles out of stock variations well! With the plugin, the out of stock options can be greyed out and made unselectable, or the styling (colour and sort order) of the variations can be altered to make the out of stock options appear at the bottom of the list and they are clearly shown in a different colour with a message.

Highly recommended.

Better Variations is working well for us at Velospeed.  It's allowing people to see which bikes are actually in stock which we couldn't do before and that helps them make their decision more easily.

The whole process of buying the plugin and being able to discuss with you directly was trouble-free and easy.  Thanks!

What are the differences between the Basic and Pro licences?

The Basic licence entitles you to updates and support for 1 site. The Pro licence entitles you to updates and support for unlimited sites.

How long is the licence valid for?

Unless otherwise stated, licences are valid for a year. During that time you are entitled to receive free updates and support. Licences will automatically renew unless cancelled.

Will the licence still work if I cancel my subscription?

If you cancel your subscription, you'll still be entitled to free updates and support until the end of the subscription period. After that, the plugin will continue to work but you'll no longer be entitled to updates or support.

Is there a free trial?

I don't offer free trials but all products are backed by a 14 day money back guarantee so if the plugin isn't what you wanted, I will issue you with a refund.

Do you offer refunds?

Yes, there's a 14 day money back guarantee so if you purchase the plugin and decide you no longer want it, just drop me a line.

Will this plugin work with my theme?

All my plugins are independent of the theme being used so there shouldn't be any problems. If you do run into any issues, just let me know and I will take a look.
