10 Free Woocommerce Plugins (WordPress Plugins that Increase Sales & Conversions)

Hey guys, in this video, I'm gonna give you my top 10 free WooCommerce plugins Yes, free plugins

No money required Free, free Everybody loves free Well, I love free things as well, but I know that there are some people out there when they're launching their first store they don't have a big budget to work with So I wanted to create a video showcasing 10 free plugins that you can use in your new store

So let's jump straight into it Plugin number one, Meta Slider Image sliders are a great way to make your store look more professional and to also showcase to potential customers the products that you are selling in your store Unfortunately, image sliders are not included by default with WooCommerce That's why in my recent video tutorial, "How to Create an Aliexpress Dropshipping Store with WooCommerce," I showed you how to add a static product image banner because of the fact that I wanted to keep things simple

If you wanna watch that video tutorial for yourself, simply click on the link that I've included in the video description below But my honest recommendation would be to switch out a homepage static banner and replace it with a dynamic image slider And the Meta Slider is perfect for this All you'll need to do is go into the plugin page in your admin dashboard, upload the images you want for your slider, set the measurements, and then generate your slider You'll then be given a short code which you can add to any page on your website, like your homepage, and then your image slider will appear there

Plugin number two, Smart Sale Badge This is a quick and easy plugin to install Usually when you have an item on sale in a WooCommerce store, you have a little sale badge that will appear next to your item And while this is nice, the smart sales badge is better It replaces the text on the badge with the "Save $X," or of course, in whatever currency your store is set to

It's a lot more exciting for the customer to see that they're saving $10 on an item that normally costs $20 than to just see a generic sale badge Plugin number three, WordPress Currency Switcher Now I am based in New Zealand, and here in New Zealand, we have our own currency, the New Zealand dollar And as someone who is based outside of the United States, I can tell you it can be a little bit frustrating some times to always see items priced in United States dollars Luckily, there is a solution to this, and that is the WordPress Currency Switcher

What this plugin does is it lets you add a short code to your product pages It will then let customers switch currencies in real time, so that they can see how much it'll actually cost them Unfortunately, the free version of this plugin only lets you switch between two currencies Now, I know there are so many people who are watching this video, they'll only be testing Facebook ads on say, the United States and maybe another country like the United Kingdom, so only having two currencies won't be a problem for them Plugin number four: Stripe

Stripe is an amazing free plugin that lets you accept credit card payments direct within your store without having to go through a third-party site like PayPal By having the option to keep people within your store url, you will usually increase your sales conversion, which means, that you will make more money While this plugin is free, there are still transaction fees No matter how you slice or dice it, if you're accepting credit card payments, then you are going to have transaction fees Stripe's fees are extremely reasonable

They will charge you 29% plus a $030 transaction fee Stripe will transfer the money into your bank account once every seven days So if you are drop shipping, be prepared to have something to manage your cash flow in the meantime, such as a credit card

The one other thing to keep in mind when you're using Stripe, is that you will need an EC Sales certificate to accept credit card payments within your store url Now, this is not unique to Stripe If there's any website out there that wants to accept credit card payments, then they are going to need to have an EC Sales certificate And this is an additional cost to getting your website domain name and your website hosting, so if it's very important for you to keep your costs as low as possible, then stick to accepting payments with PayPal Plugin number five, Checkout Address Suggestion

When you install this plugin, as the customer's typing in their address details in the checkout page, it uses Google places to suggest potential addresses If the customer selects an option, it will then autocomplete their address form for them And there are two great benefits to using this plugin One, it reduces typing errors, which reduces the chances that the items are gonna be sent to the wrong address And two, it reduces cart abandonment rate, since you're speeding up the checkout process

This is why large retailer sites, like Amazon, have all added this Plugin number six, WooCommerce Direct to Your Cart Normally when a customer purchases an item from you using your WooCommerce store, WooCommerce will send them to the cart page, and then from there they can then go to the checkout page And this is good for large retailer sites like Amazon that are expecting their customers to order lots of different items However, the reality is for many WooCommerce stores, especially WooCommerce dropshipping stores, they'll usually only be expecting their customer to be purchasing one item at a time

Because of this, sending them to the cart page just adds an additional step to the checkout progress, which will decrease sales conversions The WooCommerce Direct to Your Cart adds additional options to your WordPress dash board that changes where the "Add to Cart" button sends your customer Instead of sending them to your cart page, it will send them direct to the checkout page It also has an additional bonus feature of letting you add a "Continue Shopping" button to your product page This will add the item to the cart and send the customer back to your store, so that they can keep browsing items

Plugin number seven, WooCommerce Checkout Manager This plugin lets you add additional options to your checkout page, such as letting you add text field and a calendar date selection to your checkout page This won't be relevant to all WooCommerce stores out there, but there are some people that will find this plugin very useful For instance, I'm one of those busy, or arguably lazy, entrepreneurs that doesn't have time to cook, and therefore purchases pre-packaged dinners Because of the fact that they come in an icebox, I need to make sure that I'm at home at the right time, so that I can then go and refrigerate them

For businesses like this, adding a calendar date selection is invaluable Plugin number eight, Pricing Deals This quick and easy plugin lets you add two types of pricing deals to your store It lets you add what are called BOGO deals, as in, buy one, get one deals So for example, this could be a buy one, get one free type of deal

Or it could be a buy one, get one 50% off type of deal It also lets you add special discounts for people that order items in bulk or that spend a certain amount For example, you can add a pricing deal where, if the customer spends say $100, they will get a $10 discount I think that BOGO deals, where the customer gets an item at a reduced rate, are especially powerful, especially for Aliexpress Dropshippers In fact, this upsell technique is something that large retailers, like McDonald's use, for massive profits

It's something that I discuss in my free video, "The Six Aliexpress Dropshipping Mistakes That New Sellers Make" If you wanna watch that video, simply click on the link that I've included in the video description below Plugin number nine, Mail Chimp Email marketing is one of the most powerful methods that you can use to get existing customers to come back and get more sales For most businesses, about 50% of their sales are gonna come from existing customers, so you cannot afford to ignore them

Email marketing is very powerful Luckily Mail Chimp, an email service provider, have made this a super easy, with their free WooCommerce plugin This plugin will automatically add a subscribe checkbox at the end of the checkout page If the user leaves his tick, then they will be added to your Mail Chimp newsletter series As long as you have under 2,000 email subscribers, and send less than 12,000 emails for a month, then it is free to send emails with Mail Chimp

Plugin number 10, WooCommerce Email Exporter And finally, a fast and easy plugin to pair with your free Mail Chimp WooCommerce plugin, is the WooCommerce Email Exporter This lets you export all of your emails into a nice, simple spreadsheet This is an invaluable tool to have if you want to segment your email list into the different types of buyers And so those there are my top 10 free WooCommerce plugins
