Woo-commerce Alternative Plugins You Can Use For Your Store!

In the meantime (while we wait for the lovely eCommerce plugin being developed for ClassicPress), here are some eCommerce plugins you can give a shot:

1.) EDD - eCommerce solution for selling digital products on WordPress

Payments Gateway Supported For Free

  • Paypal Standard
  • Amazon Payments

WordPress Version: 4.4 or higher

Personal note: This is the one I have been looking for, I never knew it existed, Goodbye WooCommerce (I love you but I gat no choice), if you want to sell audio files, PDF’s or basically anything digital, give this a try.

2.) WP eCommerce - eCommerce solution for digital downloads, physical inventory, or subscriptions and memberships

Payments Gateway Supported For Free

  • Paypal Standard

WordPress Version: 4.7 or higher

Personal note: This is one is cheaper than Woocommerce, they provide a Gold Cart extension, the Gold plan provides lots of features like Live Product search, Grid view, and 14 payment gateway integration

3.) JigoShop - eCommerce solution for Downloadable or Virtual products, Variable products, Affiliate (External) products, and Simple products

Payments Gateway Supported For Free

  • There are some free ones but JigoShop page isn’t working currently, would update

WordPress Version: 4.0 or higher

Personal note: Most of their stuff is free (I think), and extension is max out around $50

These are the best alternative so far IMO, I’ll update once I got hold of new ones.


EDD: True, by far best plugin for digital goods.
WP commerce: …it works. Doesn’t have all woo bells and whistles but it’s ok.
Jigo shop: you know it was born as a woo fork, right?

Yh, think it is the perfect one for digital, I have been relying on WooCommerce for long, what I love about EDD is that it focuses only on digital product (which is my line).

It is quite funny WooCommerce is a fork of Jigoshop,

Really interesting!


Ecwid is not necessarily a plugin although they have one, but I’ve used Ecwid on several client sites and all are doing very well.


Checked it out, Good one!
