10 Popular WooCommerce Plugins

WordPress with WooCommerce make for a powerful eCommerce platform. Relatively speaking, the two are fairly easy to learn how to use with little or no programing experience.

WooCommerce is a free eCommerce plugin for WordPress. WooCommerce plugin can literally turn any WordPress site into an online store. WooCommerce comes loaded with several features that will allow a store owner to start selling online right out of the box. However, most store owners will need their store to do things that do not come with WooCommerce out of the box. What makes WooCommerce so great is; WooCommerce is a largely extensible platform, which means you can make it do just about anything you need, by using a plugin for it.

I am going to explore 10 popular WooCommerce plugins that will take your store to the next level. These plugins can be purchased right on this site at a fraction of the cost as you would be able to get them at WooThemes.

WooCommerce Memberships – Their Price $149 Our Price $10

One of the most popular e-business models is selling access to digital content in the form of memberships. If your website uses that business model, then you can use the WooCommerce Memberships extension to easily restrict or re-price content access to premium members.

Features:

  • Drip content to members according to a schedule
  • Package a membership along with another product purchase (i.e. buy an eBook and get access to a specific membership level free of cost)
  • Manually assign memberships (ideal for invite-only sites)
  • Include a free trial period
  • Reward members with discounts on other products
  • Create a buyers club easily

 

I recommend recommends purchasing the WooCommerce Subscriptions extension to allow extra functionality like recurring or monthly payments, pause a membership, membership upgrades/downgrades, etc. However, the plugin will also work just fine as a standalone.

Payment Gateways

The WooCommerce plugin comes with four payment gateways built-in: direct bank transfer, cheque, cash on delivery, and PayPal.

While these gateways are normally sufficient for a beginner e-store owner, any sort of expansion will typically require that you integrate more gateways to accommodate a greater variety of customers. In fact, the demand for more gateways is so high that more than 100 of WooCommerce’s 350 extensions are dedicated to this function.

I’ve listed some of the most popular gateway extensions below (excepting the free Amazon payments extension, all of these are priced at $79/$99/$199 respectively for the single-site, 5-site and 25-site licenses): As always they are $10 each for unlimited sites if purchased from this site.

  1. Pay with Amazon
  2. Stripe
  3. Authorize.net AIM
  4. Braintree
  5. PayPal Express (allows customers to bypass WC checkouts and go straight to PayPal)

In Conclusion

You can extend WooCommerce to do just about anything you need it to do with a plugin/extension. Your WooCommerce store can compete on an enterprise level with the big boys.

The list I have reviewed here is only a small fraction of what you can do with WooCommerce. At the time of this writing we offer 192 different WooCommerce plugins and plan to add more in the future. Our price at $10 each is a no-brainer and if you would like to keep up to date with the plugins you purchase here, we offer a very affordable monthly membership for $20/mo. which will allow you to have access to all our plugins and the updates.
