6 Best Google Sheets WordPress Plugins In 2023 (Free + Paid)

WordPress-backed sites and Google Sheets can do miracles together! From keeping a backup of your data from your site to GS to displaying a Sheet through embedding on your site, you can do many things. But yes, you surely need some best WordPress plugins to integrate Google Sheets into your site.

EmbeddPress is surely the best plugin for Google Sheet integration this year, as it offers loads of customization options. However, it is paid! Forminator is the best one if you are looking for something free. And if you already have a form plugin installed, GSheetConnector will be your best bet!

All the GS integration and embedding plugins available on the official store of WordPress have their pros and cons. So now, I’m going one by one to let you know about everything, from usability to functionality.

6 Best WordPress Plugins For Google Sheets

I’ve personally tested 11 plugins on this website alone (as it is a new one of mine). But found only six among those that are actually optimized and serve my purpose. So, I’ll now have my take on each of these six plugins!

1. EmbedPress

Classic or block, whatever editor you are now using on your WordPress site, EmbedPress will work like a charm. And according to my user experience, it is genuinely the best Google Sheet embedding plugin for WordPress. It also works well with both Gutenberg and Elementor (Pro).


  • Current Version: 3.6.6
  • WordPress Support: 4.6 or higher
  • Active Installations: 70K+
  • Total Downloads: 1.25+ Million
  • WordPress User Ratings: 137+ 5-Star review

You can now embed almost any kind of multimedia file and other resources with this fantastic plugin. And all will be integrated automatically with just a click of a button. Even newbies can easily optimize their sites with EmbedPress.

Special Features:

  • Embed any multimedia files, PPT, PDF, Docs, and Sheets from 150+ different sources.
  • Supports Google Drive, Workspace, YouTube, Spotify, Vimeo, and a lot more.
  • You can use shortcodes of EmbedPress with different page and theme builders, such as Divi.
  • It is perfectly synced with WPML to offer auto translations for your embeds. 

Not just Google Sheets, it allows you to embed from five other Google sources, including Docs, Calendar, Maps, Slides, and Forms. And the development team releases frequent bug fixes to make it work with every other plugin you already have on your site.

Advantages & Disadvantages:

User-friendly UI with loads of customization options.Only paid version available.
Fully optimized for SEO & boosts site engagement.Occasional issues with Elementor plugins
Offers custom embedding size and style.Don’t work well with Wistia.
Supports custom branding and live chat.
Offers lazy loading to increase the page speed.
Extremely easy installation.

Pricing: Individual plan is $39/site. Business ($119), Lifetime Unlimited ($239), and WPDeveloper Agency ($639) are also available. All plans come with a 100% money-back guarantee for 14 days.

My Take: As it is my new website, I was looking for something free. But this plugin comes with a hefty budget, although I’m somewhat satisfied after using it for a month. A few days ago, it started interfering with some of my Elementor-backed plugins, a big disappointment for me!

Note: Whether you’re managing data, organizing lists, or creating a dynamic table, you may need to implement automatic row numbering in your Google Sheets streamline your workflow and ensure accurate record keeping

2. Ninja Tables

While most embedding and integration plugins can make your site heavy, Ninja Tables offers a very lightweight design. It is perfectly optimized for WordPress CMS and is appropriately SEO optimized (if you are looking for some quick traffic).


  • Current Version: 4.3.4
  • WordPress Support: 4.5 or higher
  • Active Installations: 80K+
  • Total Downloads: 1.27+ Million
  • WordPress User Ratings: 315+ 5-Star review

It is basically a custom table builder where you can easily create tables for various needs with simple drag-and-drop designing. I personally find it ideal for product review sites (such as Amazon affiliates) as you can easily add comparison tables for different products.

Special Features:

  • If you are already using TablePress or Ultimate Tables, you can easily import your existing tables.
  • Hundreds of pre-built table temples are available to cater different needs of website owners.
  • Not just tablets, you can also create visual charts and stackables with ease.
  • Perfectly optimized for WooCommerce and supports custom SQL queries.

You not only just import a table from Google Sheets, but you can also now directly integrate it on your website using this plugin. So, if you change something on the mother sheet, it automatically starts reflecting on your embedded table on your website.

Advantages & Disadvantages:

Easy Google Sheets and WooCommerce integration.Google Sheets is only available in the pro edition.
VueJs and VueRouter backend to make it superfast.The customer support is not apt!
Supports “do-follow” and “no-follow” links.Underperforming free version.
Can easily make a “Table of content” for your blogs.Doesn’t offer many pre-built templates.
Offers Semantic UI, Bootstrap, and Stackable tables.
Supports both CSV and JSON for easy import.

Pricing: Single site license starts at $55/domain. An agency license will cost $90 but supports up to 20 domains. And for unlimited domains, you need to pay $209. But yes, it also offers an unconditional money-back guarantee for 2 weeks.

My Take: I have quite a high hope for this plugin after seeing many positive reviews. But sadly, almost all the useful features are missing from the free version. And there is no way to test the paid version without entering your credit card details.

Bonus: You can now also import your JSON files directly to your existing Google Sheets. And you can follow my guide on importing JSON!

3. WPForms

According to my knowledge, WPForms is probably the most popular form builder for WordPress CMS. Although it is mainly used for forms and contacts, you can also integrate your existing Google Sheets with this superb plugin. And there are tons of pre-built templates also available.


  • Current Version:
  • WordPress Support: 5.2 or higher
  • Active Installations: 5+ Million
  • Total Downloads: 138+ Million
  • WordPress User Ratings: 12K+ 5-Star review

As a website owner, my primary target is to make my site and all its embeds mobile-friendly. This plugin is super responsive and properly optimized for mobile users. Besides, it is fully compatible with all the classic, block, Elementor, and Divi editors.

Special Features:

  • Supports drag-and-drop designing to create any kind of form, like contact, payment, and feedback.
  • Offers an amazing user experience and is perfectly optimized for all your SEO needs.
  • Directly connect your WP form or table to Google Sheets to keep an automated backup.
  • Offers smart conditional logic to create intricate sheets or forms.

If you are looking for something to make a smart and easy workflow for your website visitors, this is the best bet. From payment to subscription, you can create a complete workflow with this plugin alone. And I’ve tested it with my iPhone 13, and it is perfectly responsive.

Advantages & Disadvantages:

Supports custom CSS and HTML blocks.Lite version misses many features.
Thousands of pre-made temples of various forms.Give popups and asks for reviews.
Allows website visitors to upload files and media.No clear data protection policy.
Offers instant notification option for the backend team.
Comes with a smart captcha to block annoying spam.
Offers direct support through FB group.

Pricing: Basic version (single website) starts at $49.50/year. Plus ($99.50/year), Pro ($199.50/year), and Elite ($299.50/year) versions are also available. And like other plugins, this one also offers a 14-day money-back policy.

My Take: It is a great one for form building as it offers a drag-and-drop design. However, if you want to integrate your Google Sheets directly into your website, it is not the perfect choice. It can only store data on your Google Sheets, but you cannot embed your existing sheet with it.

4. Visualizer

Developed by Themeisle (maker of Feedzy RSS), Visualizer is a stunning plugin that offers various customization options. So, if you want to play with Google Sheets and unlock its full potential on your own website, this plugin can do real wonders for you.


  • Current Version: 3.9.5
  • WordPress Support: 3.5 or higher
  • Active Installations: 40K+
  • Total Downloads: 1.4+ Million
  • WordPress User Ratings: 168 5-Star review

In my opinion, it truly deserves its place among the best Google Sheets WordPress plugins, as it can easily create and integrate both responsive and interactive tables and charts. It also uses Google Visualization API at the backend to make stunning visual (and animated) tables.

Special Features:

  • Offers 4 different chart styles in the free version and 15 chart styles in the pro version.
  • Not just Google Sheets, you can now import data from Excel and CSV files as well.
  • Tables are fully responsive (and reactive) and properly optimized for mobile and desktop.
  • An extensive set of customization options is available to match the visual style of your theme.

This plugin offers a Gutenberg interface. But don’t worry if you are not using Gutenberg, as it offers easy integration with other backend editors. You can simply paste the shortcodes to other editors to get the same feel. It also offers multi-browser compatibility.

Advantages & Disadvantages:

Caters to all your data visualization needs.Annotations don’t work on a few mobile devices.
Offers direct table integration from Google Sheets.Very limited features in the free version.
Supports obsolete browsers (IE).Shortcodes malfunction sometimes.
Import and synchronize data from any source.
Allows user edits with tampering protection.
Free live demo available.

Pricing: Personal plan costs $99/year with one-domain support. For up to 3 domains, you need to purchase a Developer pack ($199/year). Besides, the agency plan (unlimited domain) is also available for $399/year.

My Take: This plugin is easy to install and set up. When I tested this website, I found stunning charts and graphs, all pre-made. But there are no functional operations for Google Sheets. You can’t directly edit your Sheet from this plugin alone. Besides, synchronization takes a bit more time than usual.

Note: Many new users find it difficult to download their sheets from Google Sheets right onto their desktops and mobile. So, I recently published a complete downloading guide.

5. Forminator

From contact to payment to feedback, you can make and include any kind of forms and tables on your WordPress site using this Forminator plugin. Developed by WPMU DEV, this plugin offers a drag-and-drop building process. So, if you are a new website owner, go for it!


  • Current Version: 1.22.1
  • WordPress Support: 5.2 or higher
  • Active Installations: 400K+
  • Total Downloads: 3.7+ Million
  • WordPress User Ratings: 1.2K+ 5-Star review

While most of the plugins I’ve tested only give you access to integrate Google Sheets when you go for the pro version (and pay money), this feature is totally free on this plugin. Forminator gives you complete freedom to directly export and import data from your existing Google Sheets.

Special Features:

  • Advance-level table and form customization options, including multi-level form building.
  • You can create user-engaging content with it, such as polls and quizzes.
  • Offers third-party integrations with more than 1,000 different popular apps.
  • It is free and open to use. You can also freely use its developer API to make your own extension.

This plugin offers direct integration with the Gutenberg editor. So, you don’t need to take any hassle to insert shortcodes. Just drag and drop everything you need on Gutenberg, and this plugin will do the magic. It also supports Google ReCaptcha to safeguard your site from spam.

Advantages & Disadvantages:

Offers interactive polls with real-time output.Doesn’t go very well with PayPal.
Take monthly subscription payments from users (pro).Automatically converts to lowercase sometimes.
No need to pay anything to integrate Google Sheets.Don’t support multiple forms on a single page.
Visual-style designing approach; no coding needed!Extremely poor customer support.
Offers direct email routing to minimize response time.
Perfectly optimized for SEO and SMM.

Pricing: Both free and paid versions are available. 2 domains ($29/year), 10 domains ($59/year), and an unlimited plan ($99/year) are also available. Although it offers a 14-day money-back policy, there are many conditions for that!

My Take: I tried to reach their customer support but failed. Maybe it is due to its open-source policy or something. But yes, I found it the most useful app to integrate Google Sheets if you are looking for something free. However, it doesn’t offer many customization options.

6. GSheetConnector

GSheetConnector got its place in my list of best Google Sheets WordPress plugins for many reasons. First, it is the only Google Sheet-dedicated plugin that I could find in the official WordPress store. And secondly, it works like a wonder with a block editor and creates auto-syncs with sheets.


  • Current Version: 3.4.5
  • WordPress Support: 5.2 or higher
  • Active Installations: 5K+
  • Total Downloads: 39K+
  • WordPress User Ratings: 11 5-Star reviews

It basically acts as a mediator for other plugins or form builders that can’t directly integrate your data into Google Sheets. So, it is best if you need a data backup in real time. Besides, it also works perfectly synced with other form builders, such as Gravity and Contact Form 7.

Special Features:

  • Offers three different variants to offer seamless support and integration from CF7, WPForms, and Gravity.
  • Perfectly works with Google Sheets API and supports one-click authentication.
  • Automated sheet integration through the “Click & Fetch” feature.
  • You can embed multiple forms and sheets in a single page or blog.

You can easily use Smart Tag fields in the headers of your table with this amazing plugin. Besides, you can also free the seatings of any header if you want to keep it static. This one also gives you the freedom to color your blocks, rows, and columns to ensure an Excel-style feel.

Advantages & Disadvantages:

Fully compatible with popular form-building plugins.Doesn’t work as a sole plugin to integrate.
Directly integrate Sheets with Google Sheets API.A bit difficult to set up for newbies.
Easily create responsive but lightweight tables.You need to grant access to your Google account.
Automated data backup to Google Sheets.
Has access to the latest (and secured) Google library tools.
Offers automated sheet, tab, and header names.

Pricing: Single-site plan starts at $39/year. 3 sites ($99/year), 10 sites ($139/year), and unlimited sites ($249/year) plans are also available. But sadly, I failed to find any refund policy on their official website.

My Take: Honestly saying, this is not the sole plugin you can completely rely on. You need other supportive plugins like CF7 or Gravity to unlock their full potential. But what I found interesting is that the basic plan (free) offers direct integration of Google Sheets.


Can you embed a Google Sheet in a website directly?

Yes, you can embed a Google Sheet in your website directly. You need to publish the sheet to the web first. And from the popup window, tap on the “Embed” button to collect the code. You can then simply paste the code on your website to integrate it directly.

How do I integrate Google Sheets with WordPress?

You can now directly integrate Google Sheets with WordPress through the embedding method. But if you need something more optimized, you can use various plugins available on the WordPress store. EmbeddPress, Table Ninja, WPForms, and GSheetConnector are some of the best plugins available right now.

Can I use Google Sheets as an API?

Yes, you can use Google Sheets as an API. Google itself now provides a RESTful interface API through which you can directly access and modify any Google Sheet data right from your website or app. You can even change the cell values by using this API.

My Key Takeaways

As I have said earlier, I was not ready to invest and was looking for something free to integrate my Google Sheets into this site. But after trying all the free versions, not a single one gives me the proper optimization and customization options that I was looking for. However, if you are ready to pay some money, you can surely try the six plugins I’ve mentioned above.

So these are all the best Google Sheets WordPress plugins I could find and tested personally. Feel free to drop your queries regarding any plugin or start a conversation with me in the comment segment.
