5 Paid WooCommerce Extensions That Will Help to Sell Products


One of the many benefits of using WooCommerce is the availability of extensions that are on WordPress’ platform. WooCommerce, which is built off of PHP, has been bolstered with a vibrant community of WordPress developers that are committed to creating quality extensions that improve WooCommerce’s ease of use.

This can be a tremendous gift, but in some cases, it can be a curse—especially if you are not well-acquainted with the WordPress platform. An abundance of choices can be completely confusing, and you will be unsure of what extensions will be best for you e-commerce store. Some of these extensions are superior to others, and many have different functions and uses, so it’s best to be equipped with the knowledge of which ones are the best for your site.

This is the first post in a series where we discuss or list various extensions that can be used to rapidly improve the quality and functionality of your online store. The extensions listed in this list do have costs, but they are minimal to the amount of long-lasting value that you will be receiving in return.

  1. Product Add-Ons

This is a product option plugin. It allows you to add options to your products. With this plugin, you can add drop downs, file uploads, input boxes and additional price options for these products (the additional price function works in tandem with WooCommerce Subscriptions). This plugin is important if you want to optimize the configuration of your product. And it allows your customers to provide input and customize a product to their liking. It’s a paid plugin, and it starts at $49.00 for a single site license. Gravity Forms Product Add-ons is another plugin like it and, in some ways, is more advanced. The price for Gravity Forms Product Add-ons starts at $99 for a single site license.

  1. WooCommerce Subscriptions

If you have products that require recurring payments, then you need this plugin. You can set up the plugin to collect payments at any custom interval (from daily, every second week, yearly, or whatever time schedule you want). You can create variable subscriptions, which allows your customers to choose what subscriptions are best for them. You can add free trials and sign up fees, as well. Also, customers can manage their subscriptions from their account page. This plugin allows you to take advantage of the very profitable recurring revenue stream that your business needs.

  1. WooCommerce Preorders

This allows customers to preorder your product before it hits the market. Shop owners can charge customers upfront (before the product is released) or after. If you choose to set it up so that payments are collected once the product is actually released, it will automatically collect the payment from the customer, so that the customer doesn’t have to return to the site and place their order. This is a paid plugin, and it starts at $129 for a single site license.

  1. WooCommerce One Page Checkout

It is no secret that if the checkout is fast and easy, sales will come in smoothly. The One Page Checkout plugin facilitates the checkout process entirely, as it takes care of everything in one page. Customers will be able to choose their product, add it to their cart, and make the payment for it without leaving the page. There are customizable design templates, and if you have the option to create your own custom design template (if you know how to code or you use a developer). With this, customers can easily add products to their cart and checkout as quickly as possible. This is a paid plugin, and it starts at $79 for a single site license.

  1. WooCommerce Dynamic Pricing

Pricing structure is important when it comes to boosting sales. This plugin allows shop owners to create advanced discount pricing based on a set of rules or conditions. It lets users set bulk discounts, categorized discounts, and role-based pricing. Some examples:

  • Say that you’re selling t-shirts. You can give a 15% discount when a person buys 5 or more t-shirts. This would be considered a bulk discount.
  • Or, you can set it up so that when someone buys 1 or more product from the t-shirt category, they will receive a 10% discount on other items in that category. This would be considered a categorized discount.
  • Some shops have their customers in special groups like “Silver Members” or “Gold Members”. With this plugin, you can set it up so that people in these special groups receive exclusive discount. For example, every premium member receives a 5% discount on all t-shirts. This is a role-based discount.

The WooCommerce Dynamic Pricing plugin is a legitimate tool to arrange a complex pricing structure to your products. This is a paid plugin, and it starts at $129 for a single site license.

These paid extensions will help you sell more products. This is the beauty of WooCommerce: It’s an open source software with many interested developers who design extensions to enhance it. And it will only get better.
