Compare Products for WooCommerce

Description

The Compare Products extension for WooCommerce gives a product comparison feature that you’d only expect to find on the big corporate e-commerce sites.

Compare Products allows users to firstly add products to a compare widget basket, then at the click of a mouse the chosen products can be viewed in a state-of-the-art comparison table.

Chosen products are compared side-by-side, feature by feature, price-by-price. Discard products from the table at the click of a mouse as you hone in on the product that is the one for you. Save the comparison as a PDF or print it.

I purchased the premium version of this plugin. After an upgrade all the data was lost. I’ve been waiting almost two months to get help from their support team.

The problem here appears to be the plugin using an old version of ajax-admin. Particularly /?wc-ajax=get_refreshed_fragments and admin-ajax.php take an average of 6 – 10 seconds generally speaking. Disabling the plugin gave me the results below. Statistics about the page: Performance grade: A – 95 Load time: 465 ms Faster than 97 % of tested sites Page size: 463.2 kB Requests: 27 Tested from New York City on Mar 6 at 20:26
