With these 13 WordPress ecommerce plugins, you can increase the number of leads you get, engage your customers, and learn more about the users who visit your site. Customize your site to make it the one you and your customers need, and watch your success grow.
WooCommerce is the most widely used ecommerce platform on WordPress. It has over 4 million downloads and includes features like Product, Cart, and Checkout pages, as well as secure payments by credit card.
Automattic, the company behind WordPress itself, created WooCommerce and offers a basic version for free. A domain name will cost you some money, and some features and extensions are behind a paywall.
