My Top 3 recommendations for WordPress Social Login integration into WooCommerce

In case you are wondering, and you will eventually …

WordPress vs WooCommerce Social Login

What’s the difference between Social Login for WordPress, and Social Login for WooCommerce? Isn’t WooCommerce based on WordPress? Yes, exactly; its based on! Meaning WooCommerce extends WordPress with a whole bunch of new fields, like the one thats used during checkout, and most free plugins do not prepopulate the first and last name of a WooCommerce order. Isn’t that what you were trying to accomplish?

Shortlist of my Top 3 recommendations

  • [FREE] Heator Social Login
  • [$39/year] Nextend Social Login Pro

Nextend Social Login

I’ve been using and recommending this plugin for a looong time. Ever since back in the days I just got started with S2Member.

SM logins supported

  • Free version supports: FB, Google, Twitter (for WP-only)
  • Pro adds WooCommerce support and more options to long: LinkedIn, Amazon, VKontakte, WordPress.com, Yahoo, PayPal, Disqus, Apple and more coming soon

PROs

  • Free version available (but not for Woo support)
  • Super pretty and clean professional looks

CONs

  • Expensive I dare say for the Pro version: €53 for a single domain. €212 for upto 10 domains thus €21 per domain in bulk.

WooCommerce Social Login

URL: https://woocommerce.com/products/woocommerce-social-login/

SM logins supported

Connects with Facebook, Twitter, Google, Amazon, LinkedIn, PayPal, Disqus, Yahoo, and VK.

PROs

  • Created by SkyVerge (a GoDaddy brand); makes a lot of high quality Woo plugins including Woo Memberships
  • A lot of custom coding snippets provided
  • Create case study information

CONs

  • Expensive at $79/year per site!
  • Limited login options for its price
  • Alignment of buttons is ugly

Conclusion

Which is one is best. The one that has the most affiliate commission? Note: all linked resource do not have referral links at the moment, but they might have soon!

It depends what you need. If money was no object I would buy the 10 sites license of  Nextend. Plain simply as its currently the only one that has the fancy Apple login. For which an Apple Developer account (priced at $99) is required.
