As a Magento Gold Partner with plenty of experience with eCommerce consulting, we’ve had a lot of experience with implementing extensions for the platform.
Here are some of our favorite add-ons that help you launch and optimize your successful site.
Amasty Promotions Pro
The Amasty Promotions Pro extension allows a site to use very commonly thought of promotions on Magento store, as well as some unique and complex promotions. The ability to offer a free product with a purchase is common practice for eCommerce sites. The Amasty extension makes this type of promotion, which can often be complicated to implement, easy to configure. There is a tremendous amount of different promotion options that the extension provides.
This extension extends Magento table rate functionality to better suit merchants’ needs. The MatrixRate shipping extension allows a simple way of adding and modifying rates by non-technical people. It has played a significant role in cutting implementation and maintenance costs for our merchants.
aheadWorks Featured Product
This extension enables merchants to automate the way products are featured on their sites through easy to use tools built into the Admin interface. Many merchants appreciate Featured Products for its simple, yet flexible functionality and use it to showcase their products in an impressive way.
CJM Color Swatches
This extension allows a customer on a site to easily choose the color of a product. The merchant doesn’t have to create images for the swatches, but instead can just enter the hex code of the colors within the color attributes options. From there the merchant can set the color attribute identifier and swatch size in the configuration. The module will automatically create the swatches for all configurable products or you can upload swatches via the swatches panel that is included.
This extension has become a go-to solution for store locator needs. It’s easy to customize and due to an already existing functionality, cuts down on the implementation costs for projects. The uStoreLocator is an important tool for the many merchants who have physical stores.
