Most recently, this means taking a look at the latest social media app to make it big. TikTok. In this post, we’ll offer a brief introduction to the TikTok social platform. So, we’ll look at the top TikTok WordPress plugins that you can use to integrate it with your website easily.
What is TikTok?
TikTok is a Chinese-born video platform/application that allows users to create 15-second videos using a wide range of sounds, song snippets, filters, and effects. With TikTok, you can make numerous types of video such as dances, challenges, magic tricks, dubbed and funny videos, and then share them on social media.
Even though there are other similar apps in the market (LIKE, Dubsmash, Vine), what’s special about TikTok is that in every country, it proves to be incredibly successful among the Gen Z (people born between 1995 and 2015). Any user can become a trendsetter or an Internet phenomenon if they’re creative enough so it’s a great platform for people to show their skills. Dancing along to Justin Bieber’s Yummy song? Parents featuring kids’ videos? ASMR (Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response) videos? TikTok provides you with countless options to unleash your creativity.

5 WPPress TikTok Feed
A relative newcomer to the game, WPPress’ TikTok Feed plugin may not have earned the same rave reviews as Quaddlayer’s version just yet, but as a paid-for alternative, it’s certainly hard to beat.
Like our number-one ranked plugin, the TikTok Feed WordPress Plugin enables you to display videos from any user or any hashtag without having to deal with all of that complicated API nonsense.
All you need to do is use the simple shortcode generator. Add in the username or hashtag and paste the resulting shortcode into your page. If you want to change how the videos look on your page, you can choose whether or not to display things like usernames, taglines, follow buttons, and stats for each video or user.
You can also choose from multiple layout templates and tweak the size and font of each aspect. Meaning you get a level of customization that is far superior to that offered by many other similar plugins. At $19, this may not be the best option if you’re looking to keep costs to a minimum.
6 TikTok Video and Music Downloader WordPress Plugin
So far, we’ve focussed more or less exclusively on tools that help you display TikTok videos on your website. However, what if you want to offer your visitors the opportunity to download those videos. As well as just watching them on your site?
You use the TikTok Video Downloader plugin, that’s what. At $25 plus an optional $7.50 to extend your access to support for 12 months. So, is certainly not the cheapest WordPress TikTok plugin on our list. Still, with so many TikTok users eager to download and save their favorite videos. This can be a great, low-cost way to add a compelling Unique Selling Point to your website.
