How to Add a WordPress Pricing Table?
Upon activation, a new “Pricing Tables” tab will be added to your WordPress sidebar menu. To proceed, enter this “Add New” section underneath it. As shown, there are two tabs needed to be customized, including “Content” and “Design”.
Step 1 – Customize the “Table” Content
From here, you can create columns on the pricing tables. As for details, you shall name each column, set the price of plan, add plan features and specify the text on that button. The last step is to enter the “Button URL” that you’d like to direct visitors to. Often times, this should point to a payment page of some kind.
If needed, you can hit the bracketed “New Column” button to add new column. It’s possible to delete any column via the “Delete” button on the top of each column. Besides that, all the columns have a “Feature” button that allows you to display the “featured” column before others, with a “Most Popular” tag and different color. Below is our example.
Step 2 – Style the “Column” Design
This “Design” area allows you to style the column appearance. Within the first “General Settings”, you can change the “Most Popular” text, specify rounded corners and show/hid the row height.
Below is the “Font Sizes” section where you can set font sizes for “Featured Label”, “Plan Name”, “Price”, “Bullet Item” as well as “Link Button”. The rest of the options let you insert custom CSS and pick “Button Color” for both “unfeatured” columns and “featured” columns.
