13 nifty, free WooCommerce extensions you might not know about…

February 7, 2013 in Blog, WooCommerce.

There hasn’t been a WooCommerce extension drop in a couple of months and there’s no secret as to why. Team WooCommerce has been working relentlessly on making 2.0 (download RC1) awesome and ensuring compatibility with our already 100+ strong catalog of extensions.

So to stem any cases of WooCommerce extension withdrawal you may be suffering, we’ve rounded up some cool plugins that you can download from the WordPress.org plugin repository for free.

WooCommerce Customizer

WooCommerce includes a lot of filters so you can customize button text, labels, and more — but you have to write PHP code to use them. This plugin provides a settings page where you can add your customizations and save them without needing to write any code or modify any templates, which is helpful for quick change testing.

WooCommerce MultiLingual

This ‘glue’ plugin makes it possible to run fully multilingual e-commerce sites using WooCommerce and WPML. It makes products and store pages translatable, lets visitors switch languages and order products in their language.

WooCommerce Admin Bar Addition

This small and lightweight plugin adds a lot of WooCommerce related resources to your toolbar / admin bar. It also links to all setting / tab pages of the plugin and generally makes shop administrators/ webmasters lives a lot easier. So you might just switch from the frontend of your site to ‘Payment Settings’ page or check recent ‘Orders’ etc.

WooCommerce Grid / List Toggle

WooCommerce Grid / List toggle is a simple plugin which adds a Grid / List toggle to your product archives allowing users to, you guessed it, toggle between grid / list views of your products.

          There’s also a ‘share for discount’ extension I saw somewhere but I can’t seem to find it now…. it allows you to share the store link on facebook (right on product page) in exchange for a discount of your choice.

      ShareYourCart is a good plugin for this.
      Although, not for google+.

      Hope it helped you out..

    Thanks James! WC Customizer and Order Delivery Date are two I haven’t seen that I’ll have to mention to a couple of friends I built WC sites for in the past.

    I found the plugin wooCommerce Customizer is very useful for me. My client was asking me how to change some text labels, and I did via hooks. This plugin helped me a lot. No coding anymore!

    I just want to ask if there is a plugin for woocommerce to know if a product is purchased or not, cuz I am having a website where I restrict downloadable files to a specific product .. so if they don’t purchased the product then that page is not accessible for them..

    Would have loved to see the price calculator based on weight included as an extension or even better part of woocommerce. It seems a must-have feature for an ecommerce site.

    Thank you for including the Order Delivery Date plugin in this list. It was indeed not known to many people, and ever since this blog post, the downloads have surged.

    I would like to know, specifically using anyone of the three paypal gateway extensions… how can I get customer carts to get updated as soon as an item is sold out, I have a lot of people buying the same product at the same time, and it becomes a race to the finish.

    I tried messing with the inventory alerts in the settings, but it doesn’t catch it if two people are buying an item and both are in the process of checking out…

    Well is there any extension where I can give some offers to my customers, like buy 1 get 1 free, or a combo pack or something like that.

    Do you ( or anyone out there! ) know of a Woocommerce plugin which provides links to Amazon – preferably to the UK store?

    Is there a plugin which allows you to create a simple product list widget, ideally driven by category, and sortable? Seems very basic but I can’t find anything…

    Great list though – I’ve found 3 that I’m going to use so thanks!

    I’m looking for an extension that allows you to charge shipping costs based on the buyer’s location. Currently you can only choose International or Flat Rate based on country. I need various rates on the same product for Canada, the US, certain US states such as Hawaii, and outside North America. Can anybody advise my options? Thanks kindly.

    Hi, i use the “AWD Weight/Country Shipping” for shipping method. Is a very good option for shopping based on weight.

    Hey, do you guys have a plugin or know of one that allows you to add data like Nutritional Information to products?

    Also do you know of any plugins that integrate “Social Signin” functionality (so a user could sign in using Facebook or Twitter acct)?

    Looking for a drop shipping extension WooCommerce. Saw that this was in development (on another forum) but that dated back a year or so ago. Any idea when it may be available? Thanks!
