What makes your customers happy and willing to purchase in your shop more and more?

Every ecommerce store owner wants to reach the highest Conversion Rate ever. And it’s truly possible to increase this indicator by means of smart marketing strategy implementation and set of appropriate digital marketing tools. Give it a break for some time – I’ll give you a couple of sobering facts before you rush after CR numbers:
Fact #1. The average Conversion Rate is between 0,1 and 7%, and the 25% of ecommerce companies have CR less than 2% (according to MarketingSherpa Ecommerce Benchmark Study, underwritten by Magento. 4346 ecommerce marketers participated in this survey). For the record, 0,1% is extremely low Conversion and 7% is quite good.
Free or not? If charge, how much?
Each store owner has his or her own moment of uncertainty while choosing the shipping strategy. The reason behind is that shipping method affects your revenue. The effect varies depending on product price, product type, location, shipper you use and plenty of reasons more.
There is no absolute answer to the question of shipping method every store has to use and I cannot give it to you. I don’t have an intention of dragging your store into business model that would harm your income. What I can do, is to show you how to figure out which shipping method would suit you and how to set it up.
Every Magento extension contains forms. They play crucial role in customer’s interaction not only in standard store operations but also with its most dynamic parts – like reports or other data visualization. The last often contains parameters, that should be selected from a certain range of values – and it’s not only fixed set of predefined options.
It will be good to have such forms enhanced with more rich input elements, which allows the customer to select values in a visual way quickly, precise and with minimal difficulties. This also can make mobile interfaces more usable and robust – which is very important nowadays due to vast mobile devices spread.
The most common data type in Magento forms is numeric. Normally, for entering numbers regular input boxes is used. But it’s quite inconvenient, especially if values needs to be adjusted often or gathered up with other form’s elements. Let’s discover, how it can be enhanced.
The most common way to construct space-saving interface is tabs and expandable panels. This approach is utilized in checkouts, customer basket extensions, product pages and so on. In Magento 1 creating tabbed interface was not quite trivial. It included layout manipulation and CMS blocks added and grouped only in the proper place. Collapsible panels were much easier to create, but they also required an extended scripting and their implementation differed from theme to theme.
This forced customers to use some special extensions or heavily customize their themes (or even use complex theme packs).
Unlike previous releases, in Magento 2 there’s, at least, two ways to easily create tabbed interface just with a few lines of code – through Magento 2 UI Widgets.
Let’s explore how tabbed interface can be built and how it can look like.
