In this post I have listed 10 best and free WordPress WooCommerce plugins that you can use in your WooCommerce projects to enhance the usability of your blog or website.
Free WooCommerce WordPress Plugins
1. Amazon Payments Advanced
This WordPress WooCommerce plugin is developed by WooThemes, the company that handles developing WooCommerce, and I must say that they are doing the pretty good job.
This Plugin is used to integrate the Amazon’s credit card payment gateway into your WooCommerce website. The integration is done on the main website itself, and the user doesn’t leave the website at any point of time.
You will need an SSL certificate to work with this plugin and to use it on your WooCommerce website.
2. Pushover – Push notifications for Android and IOS
SMS is a thing of the past and real-time notifications are what differentiate the present from the past.
This WooCommerce WordPress plugin allows you to send push notifications related to your WooCommerce website stock and information about the stock – if it’s low, back ordered or even depleted.
You can get information about sales that you have made on your WooCommerce website and other inventory related information on your Android or IOS device that you have and this is one of the fastest ways to get information about it.
3. Accepted Payment Methods
One of the major confusions about shopping online is the way you can pay on a website. Thankfully, this WordPress WooCommerce plugin allows you to mention the payment methods that you allow and accept on your WooCommerce based websites.
This plugin will add one of those neat credit card providers and other payment options logo wherever you want to imply the methods and means that you accept for payment on your WooCommerce based website.
4. WooCommerce CSV Importer
By default, you cannot import the list of products on your WooCommerce based WordPress website, but you can use this plugin to import the products easily.
The only downside to this plugin that I find is that it doesn’t allow you to export the list. But we are going to cover a plugin that does that extra thing, so save your money and use this plugin.
5. WooCommerce – Store Exporter
In the #4 plugin listing, we mentioned that we are going to list a plugin that also allows you to export the product’s list on your WooCommerce based WordPress web store. This plugin allows you to do just that!
You can use this exported list to update several details about your listing including the shipping class or a price or many other things. The usage of this plugin depends on the situation you are in.
You can also use this WordPress WooCommerce plugin just to take a backup of everything on your WooCommerce WordPress web store. In my personal opinion, this is the best plugin that I’ve seen when it comes to back up your WooCommerce store.
6. WooCommerce Product Gift Wrap
Many big retailers like Amazon etc. allow the customers to choose a gift-wrap option in case they are sending the product to someone as a gift. Who doesn’t like an option of having a gift wrapping a product while checking out with some product online?
This WordPress plugin will add the same functionality to your WooCommerce website, and you can also set an extra price for this additional service that you are providing to your customers.
The gift wrapping option will also be selected in the order details including the additional cost while checking out.
7. Booster for WooCommerce
This free WooCommerce plugin for WordPress adds a number of features to your WooCommerce based website like bulk price converter, change currency and rates as per country, add to cart labels, mini cart and a lot more.
This one plugin has the potential to help you get rid of many plugins at once that do a single thing. This plugin provides you a suite of great features that are also a great addition to your WooCommerce website.
8. WooCommerce Email Inquiry & Cart Options
This free WooCommerce plugin for WordPress works on the basis of Rules that you set with this. You can show different add to cart buttons and set rules for displaying the same for users that are not logged in.
You can also setup an email inquiry form that allows a user to send an email using the responsive email inquiry form and then looking at these queries you can reply to them in a satisfactory manner.
9. WooCommerce Bulk Product Discounts
Want to run some offers on your WooCommerce based WordPress stores?
This WP plugin allows you to add some discounts to the products that you have preset. You can preset the number of units you can provide discounts on, say you can provide discounts on just 15 units on a product, and hence you can easily do that with this plugin. The discount is shown on the product page, email receipt as well as at checkout.
10. WooCommerce Video Product Tab
If images are worth a thousand words, I am sure videos are worth at least ten thousand words if not more.
This plugin allows you to do what the name suggests. You can add the videos related to the product on the product page of this plugin. The video is added inside a tab so it doesn’t disrupt the look of the product page at all.
These are ten best and free WooCommerce plugins for WordPress that you can use on your website to enhance the usability and features of the WordPress based store you are running.
My personal favorite of the plugins is Pushover, Store Importer and Exporter, WooCommerce Product Gift Wrap and WooCommerce – Gift Wrap as they make my selling experience much better.
