How to take invoice payments using Barclays ePDQ in WooCommerce

Invoices serve as records of each transaction that was made between your customer and your store.
Usually, your products’ prices are set by you as the administrator/ owner, but you may have a requirement wherein you’d like your customers to enter a custom price. So in this guide, we’ll provide a list of recommended plugins that do this for you.

YITH WooCommerce Name Your Price By YITH

This plugin would basically allow your customers to enter their own prices for your product. This provides your customer the flexibility in purchasing your product based on their budget, and it also gives you the possibility of the customer purchasing more as expected.

Once the plugin is activated on your site, you’ll have the option to enable the ‘Name your price’ option on a product level.

The regular price and sale price fields will be deactivated as you enable the ‘Name your price’ option. Your customers would see this field if they view the product to make them provide the product’s price freely.
