Plugin Set 1

Today we are reviewing our usual allotment of six great plugins. Stay tuned to hear them all as there is no longer a fast forward option. lets start right here with some Meat and potatoes..

John:

This plugin comes to us from my own research and helps solve the following issues

AWPCP – Classifieds Plugin

https://wordpress.org/plugins/another-wordpress-classifieds-plugin/

Version:3.8.1
Requires:4.3 or higher
Compatible up to:4.8.3
Released:22 March 2009
Downloads:475390
Last Updated:28 September 2017

(4.6 star out of 5)

The Lowdown:

Not every site needs a classified section but since I am heading into a new project that will require one I am back at a plugin I have been using off and on for the past 4 years or so. This is a Freemium plugin one of the early plugins to adopt this model.

This plugin can be setup as a completely free service or you can have short term free ads and add in paid ads or just run paid ads. It has built in paypal integration and a couple of its mods allow for additional payments systems.

You get lots of controls over the ads and what can be placed and more. With some css you can make it pretty good looking all in all a great plugin.

If you are in need of a pretty damn good classified ads plugin this is one for you.

This plugin adds a purchase order in WooCommerce for customers to complete the order. This is often the currency of business to business transactions, so why not include it into WooCommerce? This seamlessly allows a user to enter a PO for their order. Fully configurable. Easy to use.

Wholesale Pricing for WooCommerce plugin lets you set WooCommerce product pricing rules, when product price depends on product quantity in cart. You can implement popular “buy more pay less” strategy, as well as less common “buy more pay more” pricing. Pricing rules can be set for all products, or on per product basis. You can use total cart quantity or product quantity. Optionally you can set to apply wholesale discount only if no other cart discounts were applied. Discounts can be set as percent from the original price, fixed discount, or set price directly on per product basis. Additionally you can set different wholesale pricing options for different user roles.

The Lowdown:

Do you have a need to display PDF documents on your site? If so you will want to have a look at this plugin. What it does for you is allow using a short code to display your PDF as a flipbook.

There are some minor customizations you can do to the default theme layout but it still looks pretty good. This can help make your PDF easier to read and looking better than just a simple PDF doc.
