The Secret to Creating a Beautiful WordPress Pricing Table for Your Site

wordpress pricing table

wordpress pricing tableFor a service-based business, a WordPress pricing table is a must for your website. And it’s easy to boil it down to a simplified conclusion like that.

However, it does take more than just some details and prices to get your site’s visitors (and potential customers) interested in signing up and making a purchase.

A WordPress pricing table should:

  1. Provide a side-by-side breakout of the various services or products you provide.
  2. Include a detailed list of all the features that come with each service tier.
  3. Price out each tier or package for transparency and to demonstrate the increasing value of each.
  4. Integrate with your shopping cart software or redirect to a landing page built specifically to convert.
  5. Reinforce the brand’s professional image with a high-quality design.

It will be easy enough for you to take care of compiling details for the first four points above – the design part is where it can get tricky.

Obviously, you want your pricing table to look just as fantastic as the rest of your website.

After all, the level of attention to detail and the overall quality should be reflective of the kind of work that you offer.

But how do you do that if you don’t have any design or coding experience?

Well, thankfully you’ve come to the right place: with WordPress.

There are plenty of developers and designers who have already thought about this.

So you don’t have to worry about being a world-class designer or hiring a professional developer to get a beautiful-looking WordPress pricing table for your business services.

All you need to do is come up with the information that goes into it, and then use a plugin to lay it out for you.

7 Best WordPress Pricing Table Plugins (Free and Premium)

Before jumping into this list of WordPress pricing table plugins, let’s take a moment to break down what exactly it is that you’ll need from the plugin:

  • High-quality and eye-catching design
  • Multiple design template and layout options to choose from and/or customize
  • Easy-to-follow side-by-side comparisons
  • Clear and bold call-to-action at the bottom of each column
  • Ability to put emphasis on any one of the columns (if there’s a product or service you want to push over all the others)

At the end of the day, you want this plugin to save you time in trying to create this WordPress pricing table by yourself.

You also want it to greatly improve the experience of navigating through your sales funnel so that increased conversions are the inevitable result.

So, what you need to do now is find a plugin that fits your needs, which includes any budgetary restraints you may have.

If cost is a concern and you’re already paying for a premium theme, I’d suggest starting there.

I know that Elegant Themes’ Divi includes a built-in pricing table module that looks and works just as well as most of the WordPress plugins that do the same thing.

So if you can get that functionality out of your theme, definitely go that route.
