So, we took the time to comb through all those plugins and showcase only the best for your website.
So here are the 10 must-have Premium WordPress Plugins of 2019. This list has been divided into five plugin categories so you can quickly find what you’re looking for:
Category #1: E-Commerce
We’ve increased our conversion rate by 600% with one simple fix: Multi-Step Checkout
During checkout, customers are generally required to add a lot of data on the same page and this process might appear long and confusing. In one word: disheartening.
A multi-step checkout helps customers sort data by organizing form fields into different sections. This makes the process easier to navigate from the customers’ point of view. It avoids confusion and reduces possible errors while filling in the forms. Ultimately, this helps reduce cart abandonment and will spare you from losing customers during the last phase of the order process!
In some cases, the checkout process in a store becomes very long due to many data fields that have to be entered by the customer. A long checkout page becomes very boring for the customer and they may leave the checkout process. With the help of multi-step checkout plugin, you can split a long checkout page into many stages.
Category #2: Content
One of the most difficult aspects of an online store is managing the content. Visitors are quick to leave if they’re unable to find what they’re looking for quickly and easily. We’ve managed to reduce bounce rate by 220% by allowing our customers to easily find what they’re looking for with: Yith Ajax Search
