Making the right choice for your Magento Store: Magento extensions, Magento custom development, or both.
Your online store is your brand’s first impression on a customer. The better the service, the better the chances for repeat purchases. This is why choosing the right way to improve the functionality of your online Magento store is paramount.
When a customer buys from your online store, he has certain expectations when it comes to service level and customer support response times. Investing time and resources in enhancing customer support affects sale rates and your company's reputation.
‘Affiliate Programs’, ‘Affiliate Marketing’ – these terms appeared and become quite popular after Amazon established its first program about 20 years ago. Now there is a variety of successful ecommerce affiliate examples: ShareASale, AmazonSmile (non-profit model), Shutterfly, Nasty Gal, WalMart, Macy’s, Mango etc.
A lot of ecommerce stores with less known names run their affiliates and succeed in this process. Why don’t you consider launching your own one to drive more sales to your store?
When a customer knows what he needs to buy, his first action is to find the product through a quick search. The presence of a quick drop-down menu with the found goods (auto-complete) allows him to find the right product quickly without leaving the search line. The customer has only to complement the search query with the necessary criteria and then he will see the result.
Customers expect that search results will be shown instantly (they know experience of Google or Amazon search). But technically it is very hard to achieve such level of speed in Magento store. Every request to Magento needs to initiate magento core, which speed of initialization limits the speed of our search.
To solve this problem and to greatly speed up Magento search, we have created and added a new feature to our search extensions. We named it the Fast Mode.
We strive to convey the most detailed information on the product pages and manuals, but some questions are still open and arise quite often. Let's consider the most typical Reward Points + Referral program questions related to the extension operation:
Q: Suppose we created an earning rule for a product sharing rule on social networks. Is there any way to set any time interval between valid clicks (e.g. for share or like), so that preventing fraudulent actions?
A: Yes, we envisioned this alternative and added the possibility to limit the points maximum number earned per day for unique loyalty programs. In every rule, there is the "Actions" section where you can set the limit for earned points.
The first month of 2017 has passed and we’ve got a bunch of new features and improvements for your M1&M2 extensions.
