Selling Auto Parts And Accessories with WooCommerce Pt. 3 – Helpful Plugins
Building an auto parts ecommerce store using WooCommerce? You’re in the right place. Spork Marketing works with many WordPress websites that have WooCommerce, and we highly recommend you take advantage of plugins that will help your site to run optimally. Here are some of our favorites.
WP Rocket (paid) – This plugin is easy to setup and works great for standard installs, but still offers a lot of the nitty gritty control that you find in a free caching plugin like W3 Total Cache. We like the integration with Imagify as well, the combination of which can have a very positive impact on website performance.
Advanced Custom Fields Pro – Great tool for adding features to a site without going plugin crazy. However, it’s really only useful to a developer, so if you’re not one, don’t use it. Also, the pro version is well worth the cost.
BackupBuddy – While the name of this plugin is a bit cheesy, it has a lot of great features for a low price. It’s also very user friendly, which means your low-level support staff can run a backup anytime they want before they try something crazy. :)
Yoast SEO (with WooCommerce Add-On) – This plugin is essential for most WordPress sites, and the cost of the WooCommerce add-on is very reasonable.
Sucuri Security (free) – While there is a bit of a learning curve with this plugin, it’s a great tool for the price. This plugin is nice if you’ve got more than a couple of people accessing your site.
WooCommerce Car Parts Filter Plugin – This is the best rated year-make-model plugin for WooCommerce on CodeCanyon. While the documentation isn’t excellent, the plugin works.
WooCommerce Product Table – Display your products in an easy-to-read format without the programming headache.
Mailchimp (free) – We are big fans of email marketing, and of Mailchimp. We’ve talked about it before, but we’ll say it again. Mailchimp is affordable, easy-to-use, and has great deliverability. It also offers a number of automated features of etailers.
