WooCommerce free essential plugins

Here is a list of the free WooCommerce plugins I use the most.

WooCommerce Pay for Payment

If you want to add a fee for orders with cash on delivery (COD), then install this plugin. This plugin enables a field in the admin panel under any kind of payment to add a custom cost for any type of payment. The cost will be visible in the Check-Out page of the ecommerce site.

WooCommerce COD Advanced Plugin

If you want more options for cash on delivery (COD), then install this plugin. For example, this plugin enables you to choose a country in which the COD (with it’s optional cost) will be available.

WooCommerce Discounts Per Payment Method

This plugin allows you to add discounts per payment methods. Just set a amount (fixed or %) to the payment methods you want to give discount and is ready! At the moment of payment the customer will be notified of discounts for each payment method.

WooCommerce Wholesale Prices

Provides special pricing to wholesale customers in WooCommerce.

WooCommerce Cart Tab

Displays a sitewide link to the WooCommerce cart which reveals the cart contents on hover.

A big UX mistake on many eCommerce web sites is hiding access to the cart. The next logical step after adding a product to the cart is to buy it. Don’t frustrate your customers by making them search for the cart button!

Upon activationg this plugin will display a link to the WooCommerce cart which is visible sitewide and fixed in position so it remains visible wherever the user scrolls. When the user hovers over the tab, the full cart widget is displayed.

There are options (Catalog tab, WooCommerce settings) to display the cart tab on the right or the left, to use a light or dark skin to match your theme and to display the cart widget on hover or not.

If you want to add a scrollbar to your cart holder, then add into you css

.woocommerce ul.product_list_widget {
    max-height: 400px; 
    overflow: auto; 
}

WP Admin No Show

You can use this plugin to prevent customers from accessing the WordPress admin dashboard. Install it, in the settings page, tick the “Customer” role, and tick the “Front page” to redirect them to the front page.

WooCommerce Checkout Field Editor Pro

If you want to customize your checkout billing or shipping form fields, than this is the perfect plugin. Much better than the WooCommerce Poor Guys Swiss Knife, which is now discontinued (I also had a bug with the cart page and the inventory rules).

WooCommerce Checkout Manager

Works like WooCommerce Checkout Field Editor Pro, but is free and also let’s you add additional fields below order notes (outside of billing / shipping fields).

Timologio for WooCommerce

It adds invoice functionality to checkout per Greek standards. In detail:

  • Ads required fields for invoicing in checkout page
  • Displays field in admin order details
  • Includes invoice fields in emails send to customers

Checkout Address Suggestion And Autocomplete For Woocommerce

Checkout Address suggestion and Autocomplete for woocommerce simplifies the checkout process helping your customers to enter their address with the Google Places suggest API. It will save time and prevent typing errors.

WooCommerce Product Details Customiser

Customise the appearance of the product details pages in WooCommerce. Allows you to customise WooCommerce product details pages. Show / Hide core components like product imagery, tabs, upsells and related products.

WooCommerce Sold Out Products

You can use this plugin if you want to create a page that displays only the products that are out of stock.

WooCommerce New Product Badge

A very simple plugin that displays a ‘new’ badge on products that were published in the last x days. X is defined on the catalog tab of the WooCommerce settings screen.

WooCommerce Thumbnail Input Quantities

Easily include a quantity input box on every product thumbnail to allows users to add multiple products to their cart at once.

Woocommerce Radio Buttons

Light-weight plugin that converts your Woocommerce variations into radio buttons.

WooCommerce Collapsing Categories

This plugin allows you to create an expandable list (accordion) of product categories and subcategories.

In order to choose the order of the list to be the same order as in the product category admin panel, just use name instead of id in the plugin settings.

WooCommerce Email Test

Allows you to view in bowser tests of the WooCommerce emails.

This plugin adds an “Email Test” options within your WooCommerce menu. From there, you can specify a test order, and view test emails for the following email types: New Order Processing Order Completed Order Customer Invoice Customer Note

WP All Import and WP All Import – WooCommerce Add-On

WP All Import is an extremely powerful plugin that makes it easy to import any XML or CSV file to WordPress.

Opening Hours

Show your venue’s opening hours, holidays and special openings to your blog’s visitors.

A WordPress plugin actually, but by using it’s functions is_open() and is_closed(), you can prevent access to specific WooCommerce pages, print a WooCommerce notice, etc.

WooCommerce Order Alarm

This plugin injects a stupid javascript injector that refreshes and observes your Woocommerce order list. If a new order exists, it plays an annoying alarm!

Bear in mind, that it may boost your bandwidth. To reduce bandwidth usage you can:

  1. Limit the machines in which you run the plugin.
  2. Make the interval of the refresh larger. The default is 30 seconds.

WooCommerce Conversion Tracking

Adds various conversion tracking codes to cart, checkout, registration success and product page on WooCommerce.

When you are integrating any advertising campaigns, they provide various tracking codes (mainly JavaScript) to insert them various pages of your site so that it can track how the conversion is happening.

This plugin inserts those codes on WooCommerce cart page, checkout success page and after user registration. So you can track who are adding your products to cart, who are buying them and who are registering to your site.

Multisite User Management

Running a WordPress network? You no longer need to manually add new users to each of your sites.

With this plugin, users are assigned a default role for each of your sites. You set the default role for each site and this plugin applies it.

      The WooCommerce Poor Guys Swiss Knife plugin is now discontinued and has bugs, so I would strongly suggest that you use WooCommerce Checkout Field Editor Pro instead.
