WooCommerce powers over 26% of global eCommerce websites and is an excellent and convenient way to create your online shop without writing a single line of code.
But besides its convenience – another factor that makes WooCommerce a popular choice is its flexibility. While the core WooCommerce installation helps you create a basic online store with ease – specific paid WooCommerce plugins make it easy to create a customized and ideal business model of your choice.
For instance, several businesses prefer a private WooCommerce store model to grant access or sell products and services to specific customers and hide from the others. This is where a private store for WooCommerce plugins comes into the picture.
A great example is Oriflame – a direct sales leading beauty company that sells products for everyone and reserves some for specific VIP members on their website. They offer benefits like exclusive discounts, access to a complete range of products, and fast delivery to these VIP members.
There can be multiple other reasons behind creating a private WooCommerce store. In this article, we’ll briefly touch on those reasons and share some of the best WooCommerce private store plugins you can use for your WooCommerce store. Let’s go!

Offering discounts is a powerful, time-tested strategy to entice customers and boost sales.
That’s because customers always appreciate a good deal – and helping them save money on products/services they’re interested in is a sure-fire technique to attract them. In fact, nearly 90% of shoppers used a coupon code last year, which shows how much customers value discounts.
Discounts can also help you bring more traffic to your website, encourage shoppers to buy more, and thus, increase sales and revenue. So, they’re a win for both sides.
The good news is WooCommerce offers a solid coupon functionality by default to help you create discounts on your store.
While it’s great to get started, WooCommerce Discount plugins can come in handy for more advanced features like bulk-generating coupons, restricting discounts to specific users, or creating deals like Buy One Get One (BOGO).
This article will explore some plugins that can help you implement a discount strategy on your store in just a few clicks and “woo” your customers.
Let’s dive in!

While WooCommerce is one of the most powerful and flexible ecommerce platforms on the market today, it was built for retail, and therefore it’s missing many important features for business buyers.
If you are setting up a wholesale store with WooCommerce, you will find many of these features fulfilled by small individual plugins. However, that approach comes with large disadvantages: reduced site performance caused by running a large number of plugins, and plugin conflicts that can lead to technical issues and errors.
One solution can be replacing several wholesale plugins with a single all-in-one WooCommerce wholesale suite solution. By doing that, you avoid cluttering the site with a large number of plugins, as well as avoid conflicts and errors, since all features are running under the same extension.
In this article let’s explore some of the best plugin suites on the market for wholesale sites, by looking at features, use cases, pricing and support.

The same is true for B2B ecommerce, yet there aren’t many good platform choices available for small-to-medium businesses that want to sell wholesale.

There are times when you don’t want customers to login and be redirected to the default “My Account” dashboard. Maybe because you have a membership site and you want them to go to a custom “Welcome” page, or maybe you wish to send them straight to their “My Account” > “Downloads” subsection.
No matter the why, for sure figuring out how to achieve a custom redirect once a user logs in from the “My Account” page is quite straightforward.
