GoDaddy launches new WooCommerce extension for WordPress


Domain registrar GoDaddy has announced a plugin bundle expansion for its managed WordPress ecommerce customers, which it says features free access to a library of over 75 premium WooCommerce extensions.

GoDaddy says the new extensions, combined with a vast library of WordPress plugins and themes, give web designers and developers “greater flexibility and infinite possibility to create fully featured and customised WooCommerce stores for their clients”.

“The extensions increase the value of GoDaddy’s WooCommerce plugins from $3,000 to nearly $6,000 worth of premium extensions -available for free for GoDaddy’s Managed WordPress Ecommerce customers.,” says GoDaddy.

“New plugins include the ability to accept payments from multiple processors, improvements to product reviews, social login integrations, Google Analytics Pro and Memberships, new digital or printable gift card offerings, and more.”

“The additional premium WooCommerce extensions make it so much easier for me to build fully customisable and powerful Ecommerce stores for my clients,” said GoDaddy customer Phaedra Poliquin, co-creator of

“This type of functionality would have easily cost hundreds or even thousands annually, allowing me to save money, grow my business, and dedicate my time to helping my clients make the most out of their online stores.”

GoDaddy announced it is also introducing a new “seamless experience and site construction flow for Managed WordPress Ecommerce customers to quickly build powerful online stores for their clients”.

“Website designers and developers can now get their clients’ online stores up and running in 70% fewer steps.

“The plan includes a new built-in support dashboard, daily backups with one-click restore and daily malware scans and repair, including security activity auditing, remote malware scanning, and security notifications with guaranteed clean-up of any malware found on a client’s site,” GoDaddy explained.

“As more businesses move online, it is important for website designers and developers to have the right tools in place to create impactful online stores for their clients,” said Patrick Pulvermuller, President of Partners Business at GoDaddy.

“With this launch, we’re thrilled to offer our customers even more functionality with WooCommerce, the world’s most popular open-source ECommerce solution, along with the strength and versatility of WordPress which powers over one third of websites online today.”

GoDaddy says that to provide the “best and tailored experience” for Managed WordPress Ecommerce customers, it is also launching a new support message centre directly into the WordPress platform to centralise support and care, so customers can now get in touch with expert WordPress and WooCommerce GoDaddy specialists.
