Running a successful ecommerce site is more than just putting products on pages and letting consumers peruse them to decide what they want to buy. You want to make the shopping experience is easy for your customers, but also easy for yourself. Use these 6 plugins to make your ecommerce site a breeze for you.

1. Analytics.js & Segment.io for WooCommerce

Segment.io supports these providers through a single API: AdRoll, BitDeli, BugHeard, bugsnag, Chartbeat, ClickTale, Clicky, Comscore, Countly, Crazyegg, Crtittercism, Customer.io, Errorception, Flurry, Foxmetricks, Guages, Google Analytics, GoSquared, Heap, Help Scout, HitTail, HubSpot, Improvely, Intercom, Keen.io, KISSmetrics, Klaviyo, Librato, LiveChat, Localytics, Lytics, Marketo, Mixpanel, Olark, Ominture, Optimizely, Outbound, Pardot, Perfect Audience, Pingdom, Preact, Qualaroo, Quantcast, Salesforce, Sentry, SnapEngage, Totango, USERcycle, Userfox, UserVoice, Vero, Visual Website Optimizer, Woopra and of course webhooks.

The real power of Segment.io is in storing your data anlytics for later use.

For example, say you have been collecting results through Segment.io for WooCommerce to send over to Mixpanel. KISSmetrics comes out with a new feature that you really enjoy and you decide to switch to KISSmetrics. Instead of having to manually import your old data, Segment.io will automatically push your entire history (up to your account limits) to KISSmetrics for you. It makes switching analytics services super easy.

2. Customer/Order XML Export Suite
