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.
WooCommerce Quaderno – Global Tax Automation
The Quaderno WooCommerce tax automation plugin is the only all-in-one WooCommerce tax plugin for sales tax, VAT and GST. They offer automatic tax calculation, reporting, alerts & documentation for WooCommerce sales worldwide – not just the US. That means Quaderno has your eCommerce covered for 14,000+ global tax jurisdictions.
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.
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 Truevo comes in. We offer an online payment plugin specifically designed for WooCommerce stores, which will integrate smoothly with your site and be up and running in minutes.
