One of the best and worst things about the internet is that it’s pretty much limitless. Want to see a picture of a pig that’s somehow learned how to paint? You can. Want to run your ecommerce store with the best available tools that won’t break the bank? You can, but it’s not as easy as googling the pig painter. No problem, though! That’s what we’re here for. We’ve asked Truevo’s resident tech guru, Anneli van Rooyen, for her take on the best plugins for a WooCommerce store. Let’s dive straight in. 

Price Based on Country

This plugin will enable you to sell the same product in multiple currencies based on the country of the customer. Free

EU/UK VAT Compliance

Phew, this is a biggie. Essential for all businesses selling across the EU and/or the UK, this plugin will ensure that you meet the latest requirements of EU/UK VAT laws and regulations. From £55/month.

WP Mail SMTP

Love it or hate it, email is a crucial part of marketing communication. Use it well, and you’ll see results. This plugin is recommended for all WordPress sites (that includes your WooCommerce store, by the way) and will improve email deliverability. SMTP stands for Simple Mail Transfer Protocol, in case you didn’t know (I didn’t). Free

Kadence WooCommerce Email Designer

Over 300 billion emails are sent and received every day around the world. How will yours stand out? This plugin is a simple tool to customise the design of your WooCommerce emails. Free

WooCommerce Cart Abandonment Recovery

This study puts cart abandonment rate at 81.08% for all kinds of ecommerce stores. That’s pretty bleak. To combat that in the WooCommerce world, this plugin will send cart abandoners a series of emails to remind them to complete their purchase. Free

WP-Optimize

Our attention spans seem to be getting shorter – so much so that if a website takes more than a few seconds to load, we’re outta there. This plugin will clean up and optimise your database. By compressing images to make them smaller (and load faster), caching pages, and streamlining CSS and JavaScript, your site will run faster and keep people engaged. Freemium

Yoast SEO

Yoast offers tons of tools to help your website rank higher in search engine results with handy guides and pointers about keywords, phrasing, and more. “SEO for everyone” is their comforting and encouraging tagline. Don’t let SEO get the best of you! Free

Enhanced Ecommerce Google Analytics Plugin

Ooh, fancy. This plugin automates ecommerce tracking in your Google Analytics profile, syncs products with your Google Merchant Centre, and links with Google Ads so you can run Google Shopping campaigns to promote your products. That’s a lot of Google for one sentence. Free

There you have it, folks! A fine selection of (mostly) free plugins that will set up your store for success. Another plugin you’ll need for your site is one that will manage your payments. That’s where we come in. Specifically designed for WooCommerce stores, our free three-in-one Truevo Account will integrate smoothly with your site and be up and running in minutes.
