One of the great things we love about WooCommerce is its vast range of features that comes straight out of the box, For a free shopping cart plugin, it’s not only flexible, but quite powerful, enabling you to sell virtually anything, anywhere, to anyone.
Like majority online stores, there’s always going to be a time where you’ll want to integrate extra add-ons to take your online store to the next level. This is where WooCommerce extensions come into play. With a huge range of free and paid extensions available, WooCommerce can literally give you the power to sell new product types, enhance your store’s performance, treat your customers and much more.
Here are five new and powerful extensions we recommend for your new WooCommerce online store.
01. Product Add-Ons
Allow your customers to customize your products by adding new options such as input boxes, drop-downs or checkboxes. With the Product Add-Ons extension, gift messages, donations, laser engraving and any other product that requires user input is now an option for your customers!
Add-ons can be added globally or per-product from the edit product page – they can be named described, reordered and optionally given prices that are automatically added to the product price if chosen by the customer. View WooCommerce Product Add-Ons full details here.
02. Cart Reports
The WooCommerce Cart Reports extension provides real-time metrics on your customers’ open and abandoned shopping carts. Keep tabs on your customers’ carts and manage your online store more efficiently.
Once installed and activated, the new Carts tab will display converted/open/abandoned carts over a custom date range, most-abandoned products, and product abandonment by month and more. View WooCommerce Cart Reports full details here.
