How does the plugin work?

This plugin takes full advantage of Cloudflare Free Plan, so you don’t need a buy Cloudflare Pro Plan. But if you like to use features like Cloudflare image optimization, WAF (Web Application Firewall) etc. then you can buy Cloudflare Pro plan to enable those features in your Cloudflare account.
Here is a small summary of plugin features.

The free Cloudflare plan allows you to enable a page cache by entering the Cache Everything page rule, greatly improving response times but it’s not support dynamic website update such as WordPress.

Improve your site performance

Normally Cloudflare purge all entire cache and after that all pages are slow down, because Cloudflare revalidate all webpages cache again for them.

But this plugin purge only specific page cache. For example, your site have three post A,B,C and now you updated page A then cache only clear for page A not for B,C and others.

That means your all page are not affect and Cloudflare revalidated only purge page cache. It’s mean your site loaded fast always and its good for better rankings.
