It almost goes without saying that creating an online experience for your customers is a great idea. A central location for people to browse, as well as purchase, your products & services increases your exposure and expands your reach. To enhance the customer experience of your e-commerce website, we recommend the following plugins WooCommerce store. We’ve separated them into three categories, for easier interpretation: Shipping, Payments, and Customization.

Currently the FedEx Shipping plugin requires your e-commerce store uses either US or Canadian dollars. Similarly it provides dynamic shipping costs for your customers and will produce prices for international or domestic parcels.

The plugin we recommend for payment processing on your WooCommerce store is Stripe. Stripe allows both web & mobile payments, and does not redirect your customers to an external host when checking out. There are no setup fees, monthly fees or hidden costs associated with this payment option. In addition to all major credit cards, Stripe accepts both Apple Pay & Android Pay. The Stripe WooCommerce plugin utilizes Stripe Elements to provide you with a PCI-compliant checkout experience that works across browsers and devices of all sizes. Reporting and unified payouts are easily digestible from your central Stripe Dashboard. In addition to it’s quick installation and free setup & usage, Stripe offers machine learning and fraud protection information at your fingertips. We recommend Swipe for all e-commerce clients.
If customizable products or services are in your offering, we suggest the Gravity Forms Product Add-ons Extenison from WooCommerce. With this addition, advanced product configuration forms can be built and linked to any product in WooCommerce. This extension gives you full control over how pricing displays in the store will appear, and allows you to control when the built in automatic price calculation will be displayed (if at all). This Plugin is perfect for customizable products such as signage, mugs, T-shirts, and the like.
