My post on the true cost of a WooCommerce cart sparked debate (to say the least). However since WooCommerce is a fork of JigoShop and has a GPL Licence a website called WPAvengers currently offers a number of WooCommerce extensions for free. How long this will go on for I do not know, however if you are interested in any of the following WooCommerce extensions then you may well like to head on over and grab a copy of the WPAvengers dashboard.

I’m not condoning this type of behavior, however the simple fact of the matter is WPAvengers have released their Dashboard offering these plugins for free. If you wanted to test these WooCommerce extensions via their dashboard plugin and get a feel for them, then this is a good start.
Whether you download the plugin and install it is entirely up to you, all I am doing is pointing out where it is located. The descision to install is entirely up to you. It would seem the plugin is updated with revised downloads whenever they are available.
Ultimately I can see this plugin going subscription based with a monthly charge for the service. However for testing of extensions then this could be just the ticket for you.
You can grab the WPAvengers plugin here.
Edit: WPAvengers has now gone offline so there is no access to free WooCommerce plugins. (Not my fault!!)
