The Best Free WooCommerce Plugins


In another post, we listed some great paid extensions for WooCommerce … but what are the best free WooCommerce plugins? Depending on what you want to accomplish with your e-commerce store, those extensions are necessary for selling your products. However, you don’t need to solely rely on paid extensions. There are plenty of free extensions for WooCommerce that will help you with your goals. These free tools will help to make the WooCommerce platform more convenient and, of course, will help you sell your products.

The 6 Best Free WooCommerce Plugins

  1. WooCommerce CSV Importer

There is a paid product importer plugin that is sold directly from WooThemes, but this accomplishes basically the same thing. When you’re building your store, you will need to import products, and this plugin will help you do that. It’s simple and easy to use; upload a CSV file to import and manage your products. At some point, you may need to export some products from your store, so there is also a free plugin that does that as well.

  1. WooCommerce Smart Sale Badge

Instead of just slapping the word “Sale” beside your product and calling it a day, use this nifty plugin to really show your customers how much they will be actually saving. So, instead of a pedestrian “Sale” sticker that doesn’t do too much, use a customized “Save $XX”. By showing the actual dollar amount, you will quickly provide enough information for someone to know that they’re actually getting a bargain.

  1. WooCommerce Bulk Discount

Although not as robust as the Dynamic Pricing plugin, the free WooCommerce Bulk Discount plugin is definitely serviceable if you’re on a tight budget. This plugin allows you to provide bulk discounts to your customers. Some examples:

  • If someone buys 10 items, then that person will receive a 15% discount on that order.
  • Alternatively, if someone buys 10 items, then that person will get $5 deducted from his order.

Those examples represent two types of bulk discounts; the first one is percentage-based, and the second is based in currency units. 

  1. WooCommerce Product Video Tab

A well-fitting video that properly describes, or sells, the product can be an indispensible tool. WooCommerce doesn’t automatically come with the functionality to place videos on the product page. This plugin fixes that, as it provides an additional tab on the product page to display the video.

  1. WooCommerce Product Details Customizer

As its name suggests, this plugin allows you to customize details on the product page. You can show or hide elements like product images, upsells, tabs and related products. This plugin is useful if you’re looking to optimize your product page. Also, there are some items on your product page that you may not want to show to all of your customers.

  1. YITH Image Zoom/Magnifier

Simple, easy and free. This plugin allows users to zoom in on your product images. Instead of the traditional way of clicking on an image and opening a lightbox, this plugin adds a zoom effect to your images, so the only thing someone needs to do is hover over the image and it automatically zooms in.

The best free WooCommerce plugins will help to really boost your e-commerce store, make its functionalities more convenient, and will help to sell more products. If you’d like additional information about building a WooCommerce website, contact the WooCommerce Experts at Zen Agency now!
