Magento Themes and Magento Extensions


Posted on April 22nd, 2013 | Posted by admin

When a customer views their cart, each product that they have added will be listed. By default, Magento provides info for each product, e.g. name, image, quantity, price. Customers can change the quantity in the text box and submit the “Update Shopping Cart” button. That is a lot of effort for the user, we want to make this process as smooth as possible.

We can make it easier by adding +1 and -1 links to change the quantity of each item. We will do this with some very simple JavaScript which takes the current value and adjusts it. Once this has been done, we submit the form through JavaScript to reduce customer effort.

In my implementation I have used images for the links, but obviously you could use text, e.g (↑ ↓). The following two code snippets should surround the input quantity box on the shopping cart/basket page:

Magento Conversion Rate Optimization – Cart and Checkout

Posted on July 8th, 2011 | Posted by admin

In this blog post I will talk about some of the most critical areas of Magento’s conversion rate optimization process – Magento’s shopping cart and Magento’s checkout page.

Online store owners often don’t realize how much more money they could earn if they invested just a small amount of time and money into conversion rate optimization. Each store is unique and different, with different products and design, different customer’s demography etc. This means that each online store needs to be fine tuned to achieve optimal number of sales. This fine tuning process is called conversion rate optimization (CRO).

5 reasons why Magento users don’t abandon their shopping cart

Posted on June 9th, 2011 | Posted by admin

And why you should not abandon the practice yourself. These 5 points are making a strong case when it comes to web shopping :

1. Option NOT to register online in order to buy the product

Magento’s default setting on the checkout page is to have the “Checkout as guest” option which leaves the customer with the ability to demonstrate their free will if they actually wish to “Register”.

If you ever bought anything on a web shop you’ve probably been confronted with an uneasy decision making when you didn’t have any other option but to register in order to buy the product. According to the way of how we feel when we’re pushed to do something we didn’t even expect we had to do and than to have no other way but to agree to the terms or leave the cart it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to come up to the conclusion that the 30% of us will just leave the shop without buying anything.
