WordPress has come a long way over the past couple of years. It has developed from only a blog to the most powerful platform for your eCommerce website. But a simple WordPress site would mean nothing without its skillful sidekicks.

Each of these plugins has its own functionality that the platform has come to master and without which you can no longer work as a professional and productive marketer. Now, let’s see which 15 e-commerce plugins are the best and that you should add to your WordPress website right now!



This plugin is perfect to set up both a small and a large-sized eCommerce business in no time. You can sell both physical and digital products, ship them wherever they are needed, and keep a close track on your sales performance and customers’ profiles. Besides the fact that it’s a free tool, it is also open source and as flexible as any developer needs to create any kind of eCommerce website.

Easy Digital Downloads


This plugin focuses especially on selling digital and other types of non-physical goods. The effectiveness of this tool comes from the fact that it does not try to blur you with hundreds of choices for your website.

However, Easy Digital Downloads sticks to the important aspects that should be covered for digital products, like payment history, bundled products, variable prices for one product, multiple files in one download, and many other exciting features.

WP EasyCart


This plugin allows you to easily install the shopping cart without which no e-commerce website can survive. You can download the software on your Desktop, PC, Mac, iPad and Android to manage your cart wherever you are. It supports any popular payment system, you can set 7 different languages on it, set up coupons and promotions, integrate Google Analytics for a thorough report system plus it creates a social sharing button for each of your products.



By installing the Ecwid plugin, you can start selling your product on a global level whenever you want. It works with main carriers like FedEx, USPS, Canada Post, Australia Post to automatically calculate the shipping rates of any product. There are automated tax rate calculations available for Canada, U.S, and EU VAT.

In addition to that, Ecwid helps you set up an online Facebook store to sell instantly to millions of social media users.  It’s so easy to use that you can manage your sales right from your smartphone.

These are the best eCommerce plugins that become in a short time a popular choice across the globe. Choose that eCommerce that offers the benefits your website needs the most and you will be all set for success.

  1. Thank you for mentioning Cart66 in your list! It looks like the images may have gotten a little out of order with the Cart66 image showing up under Marketpress and the iThemes Exchange image showing up for Cart66.

    I really appreciate your mentioning the security and the hosted payment page with Cart66. Not having to worry about all the technical / security issues is a big differentiating factor for people using Cart66.

    It might also be worth pointing out that, with Cart66, you can sell physical products, digital products, and memberships / subscriptions. You can even sell all those different types of products at the same time – in the same shopping cart – which is another thing that differentiates Cart66.

    Thanks again! (I am the founder of Cart66)
