Comparison tables are a great way to help your readers pick the right product for them.
They may be deciding between two or more products. Or maybe they’re deciding which type of service to purchase from you. No matter what the situation is, a visual comparison is a great way to push them towards making a purchase.
Unfortunately, as effective as they are, there’s not really a good way to create comparison or pricing tables in WordPress with the WordPress Editor.
You could create a table yourself using HTML…if you want to waste a lot of time. Or, you could just turn to a plugin to create good-looking tables for you.
And guess what?
You’re in luck because I’m about to list off the best WordPress comparison table plugins and best pricing table WordPress plugins. I’ll include both premium and free options so that you can find a plugin no matter what your budget is.
Best Comparison table & pricing table WordPress plugins
1. WP ComPEAR
WP ComPEAR is a powerful premium plugin that lets you create both vertical and horizontal comparison tables.
One thing that differentiates this plugin from the rest is the ability to create both static and interactive drag and drop comparisons. Visitors can choose which products they want to compare by dragging each product onto the table.
In addition to that cool feature, WP ComPEAR also lets you make your tables sortable or static, change each column’s width, duplicate tables, and create unlimited tables with unlimited comparison criteria.
If you need to compare products, WP ComPEAR is one of the most unique and feature-rich plugins on this list. This plugin is also compatible with EasyAzon which is most popular Amazon affiliate WordPress plugin.
It’s also fairly affordable – a single site license is $15, and you can get an unlimited license for just $25.
With over 400,000 active installs and an impressive 5-star rating, TablePress is one of the most popular free comparison table plugins.
While not specific to comparison tables, TablePress lets you create all types of tables and insert them into posts or pages via a shortcode. You can edit your tables in an interface that looks like a spreadsheet, so you don’t need to worry about knowing how to code.
In addition to those major features, TablePress also includes these helpful options:
- Add pagination, sorting, and more.
- Import/export tables to Excel or .csv.
- Contains any data type (even formulas).
- Premium add-ons enable responsive design, detailed filtering, and lots more.
3. Table Maker
Table Maker isn’t quite as popular as TablePress yet, but it’s quickly gaining ground. It lets you create a variety of tables, from comparison to spec tables.
All the tables created by Table Maker are responsive, so they’ll look great on any device. And the plugin lets you emphasize certain rows or columns to draw readers’ attention (see the example above). This can help you push readers towards your preferred products/services.
Table Maker also works with shortcodes and makes it easy to upload and insert images in your tables.
4. Go Pricing
Go Pricing is a premium plugin for creating beautiful comparison tables. Though it shines with pricing tables, you can use Go Pricing to create any type of comparison table.
Go Pricing includes 250+ table templates to help you get started without needing to begin from scratch.
This plugin also includes features like:
- Column animations.
- Font Awesome icons integration.
- Responsive design.
- Shortcodes to easily add tables anywhere.
Go Pricing costs $25 at CodeCanyon, and has 7,400 sales with a 4.6-star rating.
If you need comparison tables for your WooCommerce store, you’ll love this free plugin.
YITH WooCommerce Compare allows users to create comparison tables based on specific product attributes that you select. Users just need to click a “Compare” button on the product page to see how the product stacks up against others.
You can customize the comparison tables’ designs, though you will need to know some code to accomplish this, as it’s not easily done from YITH WooCommerce Compare’s interface.
wpPricing Builder is another premium plugin that’s focused on creating (mainly) pricing tables. It comes with over 25 pre-made templates to get you started.
The plugin’s interface lets you easily set up product attributes, columns, and styles. And the color theme generator helps you create good-looking tables even if you’re not a designer. The plugin also includes Font Awesome icons to round out this great set of features.
Here is a video demo of this mildly popular WordPress Responsive Pricing Tables plugin.
wpPricing Builder costs $18 at Code Canyon.
Pricing Table by Supsystic is a well-made, free plugin that lets you create both pricing and comparison tables.
The plugin includes a drag and drop builder so you can create tables without needing to know any code. You can use unlimited columns/rows, and add tooltips wherever needed.
You can style buttons, text, and custom CSS to make sure your tables look perfect. And you can even include videos or images in your pricing tables. The ability to include images makes it possible to create detailed comparison tables as well.
No matter how you create your tables, they’ll always be responsive so you don’t lose out on mobile traffic.
Arena Products Store is a bit more full-featured than many of the other plugins on this list. It aims to create a whole store, rather than just comparison tables. But the plugin also includes a nice comparison table feature, so that’s why I’ve included it here.
You can set up general product attributes and then choose which of those to include in your comparison tables. You can also publish your own comparison tables or allow users to create their own by clicking a “Compare” button.
If you just want a lightweight comparison table plugin, Arena Products Store is probably not for you. But if you’re looking for a full-featured way to display and compare your products, give this plugin a look.
Arena Products Store costs $36 at Code Canyon.
Easy Pricing Tables is a freemium WordPress plugin that lets you create responsive pricing and comparison tables.
In the free version of the plugin, you can:
- Easily create tables without knowing any code.
- Customize fonts, colors, and borders.
- Create unlimited rows.
- Reorder columns via a simple drag and drop function.
- Feature your recommended pricing column.
- Add custom CSS (if needed).
The free version is more than powerful enough for most users, but if you upgrade to the premium version, you’ll also get access to features like:
- 10 pre-made templates.
- Even more customization options.
- Tooltips when users hover over pricing options.
The premium version costs $29 for one site, and $99 for unlimited sites.
Final Thoughts and Recommendations
If you’re looking for the most feature-rich comparison plugin, I think WP ComPEAR is your best option. If you just want to create beautiful tables fast, you can go with Go Pricing for its 250+ templates.
Those are just general recommendations, though. Your specific situation may well require one of the other plugins!
