Do you hate membership-based payment model? If yes, CodeCanyon is the perfect place to get a WordPress plugin, then. CodeCanyon is a marketplace whereby you can buy an individual WordPress plugin (and other digital products) with a one-time purchase option. Although you only spend your money once, you will get access to the future updates of the plugins you bought — forever — as long as the plugin is actively developed by the developer. The limitation is only on the technical support.

If you buy a WordPress plugin from CodeCanyon with a regular license, you will only have access to technical support for six months. Longer technical support period is available with an extra fee.

Buying a WordPress plugin from CodeCanyon can be a smart option to reduce the expense of a WordPress site in the future as you don’t need to pay subscription fee. As a result, you will find your revenue increased.

In CodeCanyon itself, you can find WordPress plugins from a wide range of categories. From form builder, newsletter, to membership plugin. We have curated some of the most popular WordPress plugins on CodeCanyon. Here is the list.

Please note that the items in the list below are selected randomly based on the CodeCanyon Best-Selling Items page — which is updated weekly.

1. Quform

Quform is a form builder plugin for WordPress. That being said, you can install the plugin if you need to create a form on your WordPress website. You can use Quform to create a wide range of form types. From a contact form, survey form, to a file upload form.

Quform comes with a built-in feature to manage form submission data. To create a form, you are provided with a builder offering a drag and drop functionality. The form builder of Quform supports the following field types:

To protect your form from bot, Quform allows you to integrate your form with reCAPTCHA. Another notable feature offered by Quform is display condition, which you can use to display a field when a certain criterion is met.

2. WPBakery

3. FileBird

WordPress has a built-in feature to manage the media files you have uploaded — be it images or videos. However, the administration feature of the WordPress built-in media library is limited. FileBird is a WordPress plugin that extends the feature of WordPress media library.

With the plugin, you can put together media files into folder just like File Explorer on Windows or Finder on macOS — which is pretty helpful if you have an e-commerce website or photography website. To make it easy for you to identify the folders, you can use a distinct color on each folder.

FileBird also offers more advanced file filtering options. With FileBird, you can filter your files by date added, name, author, size, and date modified. Furthermore, FileBird allows you to download all files inside a folder. The files will be downloaded in a ZIP format.

4. Filter Everything

Do you have an e-commerce website built with WooCommerce? If yes, then you might want to try Filter Everything. It is a WordPress plugin that allows you to add advanced filtering feature to your e-commerce website just like JetSmartFilters. The difference is that Filter Everything is a generic plugin, not designed specifically for Elementor.

You can use it on Gutenberg, Divi Builder, and other page builder plugins. You can use WooCommerce product fields — price, size, stock status, etc. — as the filtering criteria. Filter can be displayed in the following styles:

Not only you can use Filter Everything to filter WooCommerce products, but you can also use it to filter blog posts and custom post types. You can even use custom fields as the filtering parameters.

5. Mailster

Are you looking for a newsletter plugin? While plugins like MailPoet and Newsletter Glue offer a great newsletter creation experience, you might want to use Mailster instead. Especially if you have a tight budget. Well, you need to spend over $80 to get the Mailster plugin, but it is a one-time expense.

You need to be very careful when picking a newsletter plugin as newsletter is one of the budget-consuming features on a website. Most newsletter plugins don’t offer a built-in email delivery service. Instead, you need to use a third-party service like MailGun, SendinBlue, or Amazon SES.

In other words, you need to spend two budget components: the newsletter plugin itself and email delivery service. When you use a subscription-based newsletter plugin, you need to spend these budget components at once. Since you can get Mailster with a one-time purchase option, you only need to spend subscription fee on email delivery service.

Mailster itself comes with a drag and drop newsletter editor just like most newsletter plugins. It also comes with a form builder to assist you to collect email addresses of your users. The conditional logic offered by Mailster allows you to send newsletter based on certain criteria:

6. ARMember

ARMember is a popular membership plugin on CodeCanyon. You can use the plugin to add membership functionality to your WordPress site. With membership functionality, you can offer membership content and set who can access it. ARMember comes with built-in payment feature to allow you to accept paid membership. The payment gateway services supported by ARMember are PayPal, Stripe, Authorize.net and 2Checkout.

Regarding the content type, ARMember allows you to monetize whether blog posts, pages, or custom post types. Key features offered by ARMember include:

7. Bookly Pro

Want to add booking functionality to your WordPress website? Bookly is a plugin you can consider, then.

Here are the key features offered by Bookly:
