Which Cookie Consent Plugin for WordPress is Right for You?

When making your decision, assess your business needs thoroughly and make sure you understand all of the features of the plugin. The plugin with the widest global coverage is usually a good choice.

For instance, if you are a US based business – as your business grows, you might have customers from countries in the EU (GDPR) which have their own cookie consent requirements. Your organization will have to comply with the GDPR as well. Having a cookie consent solution that can comply with multiple global regulations is essential.

Other things you might want to consider are:

  • The vendor’s expertise in data privacy solutions – do they offer other solutions like consent management or DSR fulfillment?
  • Their ranking on Gartner or Forrester’s annual report.
  • Any awards or recognitions they might have received from G2, Forrester, RSA, etc.
  • Integrations – how easy is it to integrate these plugins with your existing data pipeline.
