The main WooCommerce plugin has the basic features your business or company website requires to sell products or services online. However, you may need to install extensions (additional features) to customise the store and enhance its functionality.

For instance, you may want to follow up with your WooCommerce store customers, get detailed sales reports, integrate your store with your accounting software, and so forth. These features would allow you to improve your store and run it more efficiently. And extensions are created for that purpose.

One thing to remember, though, is that third-party software always presents a security risk. So you need to exercise due diligence before installing an extension by ensuring it comes from a reputable source.

WooCommerce has a load of its own extensions but also features products from other developers on its store. You may also acquire the extensions from a third-party repository. Fortunately, there are both free and premium products; hence you have an option to improve your store’s functionality no matter your budget.

With that said, let’s look at the 15 new WooCommerce extensions you need to consider to improve your store in 2022.

Top 15 New WooCommerce Extensions Your Store Needs in 2022

1. Vimeo

Video is a powerful marketing tool, and which is no wonder most marketing professionals use it and are satisfied with its results. The reason for video success is none other than the fact that people enjoy watching visual content over reading text, and as statistics indicate, this translates to increased qualified leads.

Thanks to Vimeo, you can easily turn your product images into engaging videos and convert more of your audiences. From product introduction to new product arrival announcements, testimonials, and highlighting a special sale, Vimeo has ready templates to aid your creation. Besides offering customisable templates for easier creation, the software also allows you to automate video production, track results, and lots more.

2. Follow-Ups

Following up with converted customers is an excellent way of creating a stream of repeat business and a loyal customer base. In addition, tracking down prospects that have shown interest in your business increases the chances of converting them.

The easiest way of achieving this on your WooCommerce store is using an extension to follow up with the customers and prospects and keep them engaged with your business. Created by WooCommerce, Follow-Ups is one such software you can use to engage your customers with less effort.

With Follow-Ups, you can email or tweet the customers, automate your email marketing, customise email templates, personalise the messages, track email results, integrate your WooCommerce email system into your marketing plan, and so forth. Generally, the software offers the tools you need to run successful email marketing for your WooCommerce store.

5. LiveChat

Excellent customer service is crucial for business success. Ideally, customers expect high-quality service, and meeting this expectation is a hands-off way of winning their loyalty. Not only do happy customers refer others, but customer retention is far much cheaper than customer acquisition.

LifeChat allows you to create positive customer experiences with your WooCommerce customers and prospects. Installing LiveChat for sales and support helps increase engagement by allowing your team to connect easily with store visitors. Responding to their queries or receiving live orders is a handy way to increase customer satisfaction, impact brand image, and increase sales.

7. WooCommerce Google Analytics

Google Analytics is a powerful solution that provides insights into your online performance. WooCommerce’s Google Analytics extension allows you to track data such as users, sessions, and events. The extension also filters admin visits for more accurate reporting. Moreover, it supports display advertising, allowing you to track the performance of your paid campaigns.

You can gain insights from WooCommerce Google Analytics including individual channel (social, email, ads, etc.) performance, tracking customer journeys (from product page to checkout), understanding customer intent, etc.

8. AutomateWoo – Birthdays

Birthday emails are powerful conversion avenues. With high click and transaction rates, you can never go wrong by sending your customers warm birthday wishes on their special day.

AutomateWoo – Birthdays by WooCommerce allows you to install the extension on your store and collect birthdate details from your customers as they check out. Then on their birthday, you can delight them with a personalised message and an irresistible coupon.

In addition to building customer loyalty, AutomateWoo – Birthdays is an excellent extension for boosting sales.

9. Trustpilot Reviews

Reviews are a powerful tool in shaping customer decisions. A business that prioritises collecting authentic customer reviews stands to gain immensely. Among other benefits, they provide free advertising, improved search engine results, and better customer relations.

Generally, consumers value genuine reviews as they help them make informed purchasing decisions. With Trustpilot Reviews, you can collect and display verified reviews of your products/services/brand and aid your prospects’ decision-making.
