WooCommerce is a free WordPress plugin that allows you to create a website with a shop feature. It adds eCommerce functionality that enables you to have an online store. WooCommerce is for everyone.

Of course, there are some other plugins that you must have so you could have a high-functioning online website shop that any rookie or a professional can use to expand and sell their product. If you work with big businesses you may want to consider a Woocommerce punchout catalog to integrate with your buyer eprocurement system.

1. WooCommerce Order Export – PRO


This plugin for your WooCommerce store helps you export all orders data easily and quickly. With the help of its filter and the drag & drop functionality, you are able to find the orders of your interest and reorder the fields in a way you want them to appear in the export. When talking about the filter, it includes filtering order by date, product, product category, coupon, and many others.

2. WooCommerce Table Rate Shipping – PRO


This plugin in WooCommerce is a must-have.
