One of the great things about using WooCommerce is access to the huge ecosystem of 3rd party plugins.
We all know about the mega-installs like WooCommerce Tax, Google Listings & Ads and Jetpack. In this article I’m looking at some lesser-known plugins to enhance your WooCommerce store.
It’s worth noting that if you are a 20i WooCommerce Hosting customer you don’t need plugins to:
- Minify your CSS/JS
- Combine multiple CSS/JS files
- Connect to a CDN
- Take backups
- Set-up caching
- Optimise images
- Lazy load images
- Block traffic by country or IP address
- Create WordPress staging environments
You can do all this from within your My20i control panel without any drag on your website’s page load times. With that in mind, I have not included plugins that duplicate these. If you’re not a 20i customer, have a look at our WooCommerce Hosting.
One final note: not every plugin listed below will be appropriate or relevant to your use case. Really think about the value they are going to bring to your site. Every new plugin you add to your site will inherently slow down your page load times to some degree.
