Pretty much everything in Web development have been introduced into WordPress as plugins to help beginners and bloggers without technical web development knowledge to play their role in content marketing. So whatever a blogger finds difficult to do in web development, he could do that in WordPress plugins in a matter of minutes.
One of the most important thing, i found difficult to create, was a pricing table / a comparison table, which would let me to compare products. Because a comparison table can help a visitor make his decision faster and helps in increased conversion. So I was looking for a perfect comparison pricing table to use in my website. And then i came across “GoPricing WordPress Plugin by Codecanyon” after a long search and trial of various other plugins.
I used it in my previous blog posts and found it very useful and so i decided to write a review on this “Go Pricing WordPress Plugin”

Easy Building and Customization of TablesMost excellent and highly reputable feature of Go Pricing wordpress plugin. Building of a table is very easy and dynamic, like playing like a video game.

Where and Why should you use this comparison table?
- In affiliate blogs where you promote multiple products. Because people like easy comparison more than a whole list of features.
- These tables helps to make a faster decision and hence a higher conversion.
- In Comparing two bloggers, two team members and anything you can think off.
This plugin though very helpful has many limitations. Though they are minor ones, they decrease your productivity time a little. So here i have listed some limitations here.
- You cannot import a table from excel sheet or csv format. If you have prepared some comparison there, then you should type them manually. Problem is you cannot do this directly there too. You will get confused.
- Number of columns are restricted to 5, so any more products, you cannot use this plugin.
- No Live Preview. The Real Pain. Every time you want to see the change, you have to save it, insert it in a post and preview it to check.
Rating : 3.5 out of 5 Stars
Price : $17
Final word is, as far as design and customization this plugin is the only best wordpress comparison table plugin available in the market. But if you give more importance to your time, stay out – Because no imports, no live preview, making it hard, real hard. Sadly you have no alternative (so far!)
