Pfand (Deposit) for WooCommerce Products


Dieses Plugin ermöglicht es, jedem Woocommerce Produkt Pfandwerte zuzuweisen und somit Dinge wie Flaschenpfand abzubilden. Deutsche Übersetzung liegt bei. Für Anpassungen bitten wir um Kontaktaufnahme.

This plugin was written for a German beverage store. They needed deposits for bottles as well as boxes, which would be displayed separately and excluded from tax calculation.

With this plugin you can add a deposit to any WooCommerce product by adding the price under Products - Deposit Types.

Note: Because WordPress allows users to add multiple values and
comma-separate them, you have to input the prices with ‘.’ (period) as the decimal separator, independent of WooCommerce settings.


  • Translation-ready (German translation included)
  • Uses built-in functionality of WordPress and Woocommerce thus fully compatible with, e.g. WP Export/Import tools
  • Developer-friendly (more hooks & documentation to come)

Custom code

Since there are a lot of different ways you or your customer may want this set up, please contact us for customizations such as:

  • Compatibility with WooCommerce German Market (disable taxing off deposit)
  • Link deposit to shipping zones’ methods or customer language
  • Force sells (e.g. 1 beer crate for every x bottles)
  • Enabling of tax calulation
