WooCommerce: What Are the Must-Use Plugins?

Ah, if only there were a “simple” WooCommerce project! We would all use the same plugins, copy and paste the same content and the world would be all the same ๐Ÿ™‚

So, let’s be clear about this question. There is no must-use plugins list for WooCommerce, as each website is custom and therefore needs different functionalities.

Having said that, many WooCommerce developers use a few identical plugins on almost every project, and this post contains an answer to that.

Most Voted Must-Use Plugins

  1. Yoast SEOย (free)
  2. Contact Form 7ย (free)
  3. WooCommerce Google Analytics Integrationย (free)
  4. WooCommerce PDF Invoices & Packing Slipsย (free)
  5. Akismet Anti-Spamย (free / donation)

  13. Booster for WooCommerce (free)
  14. Really Simple SSLย (free)

Once again, make sure not to use them ALL – this are just the top 16 results of a poll among a few selected people on a WooCommerce Facebook Group.

Hope this helps a little ๐Ÿ™‚
