One problem with a lot of group buying software is that it requires you to make an entire website that revolves around group buying, which may not work for your needs. However, if you want group buying to become a significant feature on your site, you could try the WPGroupbuy WordPress theme. This WooCommerce-supported theme lets you set minimums for a deal to work, limit how many items a single buyer can purchase in a deal, and more. However, because WPGroupbuy aims to help people set up Groupon-like websites, it won’t work if you just want something that integrates with your existing site.
WooCommerce Group & Daily Deals
This plugin might suit your needs better, allowing you to adjust your current site without transitioning to a new one. With Group & Daily Deals, you can easily customize the scheduling, display, and more for your deals. It’s mobile-friendly, which is valuable for the many customers that shop on phones and tablets. This plugin also gives you more information in the reports than most other options do, so you can see how well your deals are doing and make changes as needed.
WooCommerce Group Buy and Deals
This plugin is meant to let you set up Groupon-like sites with minimal effort. Since it’s a plugin and not a theme, you can set it up quickly, and it has plenty of options for customization. For example, you can set the timing of when each deal gets shown, and you can let users create their own page where they can see past group buying deals they’ve participated in.
Social Deals Engine
This plugin is also mobile-responsive, and offers excellent reporting for your records. Your customers can purchase multiple deals at a time with Social Deals Engine, too. It offers multiple payment and checkout options to make shopping appealingly easy.
WP Coupons and Deals
This plugin keeps things simple, giving you a basic option for showing current deals on your existing site. Using widgets, you can change where the deals appear on each page. It shows the expiration date that you set, and even has templates so you can create new deals or coupons faster.
There are vastly more group buying themes than there are plugins, but this list does have some solid options that should get you started. You can set the minimums and timing so every buyer will get their deal locked in as long as the minimum number gets met. You may need to try a few of these plugins before landing on the one that works for you, though. Finally, you should keep in mind that not every plugin will work with every site theme.
