1. WooCommerce

As a WordPress agency owner that is a WooExpert Silver partner as well, the WooCommerce plugin is the obvious choice for us to turn our clients’ websites into fully functional online stores, enabling them to sell physical and digital products, manage inventory, process payments, and much more.

WooCommerce is known for its user-friendly interface. It provides a familiar WordPress environment for managing an online store, making it easier for our clients familiar with WordPress to operate an e-commerce site. It is highly customizable and scalable.

WooCommerce benefits from a large and active community of users and developers. It means you can find plenty of documentation, tutorials, and support forums for help. WooCommerce provides built-in reporting tools to help you track sales, monitor customer behavior, and make data-driven decisions to improve your store’s performance.

Without a second thought, the WooCommerce plugin helps us improve our WordPress agency business; millions of e-commerce stores leverage it.

2. WooCommerce Subscription

We get frequent requests to develop subscription model-based websites for our clients running eCommerce businesses. For this purpose, we use the WooCommerce Subscription plugin to create more stable and customer-centric e-commerce websites by providing them the option of recurring revenue.

It integrates with over 25 payment gateways for automatic recurring payments. WooCommerce Subscription’s remarkable features, like variable subscriptions, subscription management, subscriber account management, synchronized payments, multiple subscriptions, and subscription coupons, distinguished it from other subscription plugins within the WordPress ecosystem.

Its detailed reports allow you to keep track of recurring revenue, the number of active subscribers, and more.

3. Post SMTP

WordPress websites rely on email notifications for various purposes, such as password resets, contact form submissions, order confirmations, etc. However, the default email function of WordPress might encounter issues with deliverability.

Post SMTP plugin provides a reliable method to ensure that all emails sent from the WordPress website reach their intended recipients. It has built-in debugging tools that help identify and troubleshoot email-related problems. It provides detailed information about email logs, delivery status, and error messages, which can be useful for diagnosing and resolving email issues effectively.

More than 400,000+ users trust the Post SMTP plugin for their email deliverability. Post SMTP plugin is already integrated with Brevo (Formerly Sendinblue), Sendgrid, Gmail, Mandrill, Mailgun, Postmark, Sparkpost, and many more email services.

Post SMTP top features include:

  • Easy SMTP Integration & Flexibility

We use this plugin on our multiple WordPress websites for email deliverability and recommend it to our agency clients. Please Note: WPExperts owns the Post SMTP plugin

4. Gravity Forms

When building contact forms for WordPress websites, we have choices of many form builder plugins, but Gravity Forms stands tall among all of them. Gravity Forms provides a wide range of field types and customization options, allowing you to create simple contact forms, surveys, registration forms, payment forms, and more. You can tailor your forms to suit your specific needs.

Gravity Forms integrates seamlessly with various third-party services and applications, including email marketing platforms, CRM systems, payment gateways, etc. This integration capability simplifies data management and automation.

For advanced users and developers, Gravity Forms offers hooks, filters, and extensive documentation for customizing and extending the plugin’s functionality to meet unique requirements.

We run a brand called GravityMore, where we develop utility add-ons for Gravity Forms users.

5. Password Protected

Since we’re a WordPress agency, we deliver projects to various clients. Meanwhile, we’re working on their websites. We have to show our progress to our clients. We do not work on LIVE websites and can’t give access either. To cater to this security problem, we utilize a plugin, ‘ Password Protected.’

Password Protected can secure your entire website with a single password. Everything from pages to posts will also be protected. It is a type of plugin that works in maintenance mode, and clients can access their website to get feedback from their teams.

Password Protected made our life much easier at our WordPress agency. it’s our own plugin, and we also recommend it to others.
