Ecommerces are complex operations that demand a lot of work and a diverse set of skills. Managing a big team is essential to overcome this challenge, but a high number brings some burdens to the table. For one, it makes tracking errors and performance especially hard.
The Admin Logger for Magento 2 is a powerful tool that addresses that by tracking all back-end actions performed by store administrators. It also creates rollback checkpoints for easy repairs.
Holidays are coming. As anyone who works with sales knows, this is a big deal, as most stores take months to prepare for these few weeks when customers go on shopping sprees. It’s a time for increased sales, but not only: it’s also an opportunity to benefit from the increased engagement to gather reviews.
According to the recent 2017 Deloitte holiday survey, Ecommerce sales will likely increase 18-21% in relation to last year’s numbers, with over half of the amount of money spent by American consumers projected to flow into the Ecommerce arena.
User experience (UX) and an effective front-end dashboard have taken center stage when it comes to the world of Ecommerce.
This should come as no surprise since the surveys and studies of recent years have repeatedly shown that online users consider their experience more and more when choosing their preferred online vendors. This applies the same way to suppliers.
The holidays are an important time for the e-commerce community. The amount of online transactions tends to skyrocket during the holiday seasons, which means more issues surrounding online checkout procedures can also happen. That’s why it’s important to have tools to help improve the customer shopping experience.
The world of Ecommerce is always evolving, and to stay competitive businesses must follow and modify their tactics to match new trends as they arise.
In particular, the B2B market is expected to grow radically, with a recent study from Forrester projecting that B2B Ecommerce in the United States will reach double the worth of B2C operations by 2020.
Magento 2 recently rolled out its latest version, Magento 2.2, bringing a wave of awesome new features for webstore owners to enjoy.
As we discussed last month, the update brings lots of helpful upgrades to improve the platform’s business-to-business (B2B) Ecommerce capabilities. However, the Magento 2.2 update also includes a notable range of overall improvements that webstores of every kind will find valuable.
More than 140 million Americans had their Social Security numbers exposed this September, after the mammoth consumer credit reporting agency Equifax, Inc. was hacked. Over 200,000 of these victims had even their credit card information accessed, in what has been called the worst data breach in US history. “If Equifax can be hacked, no one is secure. Every webcommerce store needs protection”, says Daniel Botbol.
The world of Ecommerce is always expanding, and to keep pace Magento 2 is releasing a newer version this September. Magento 2.2 will be the latest update to the most popular Ecommerce platform on the internet, and is going to mainly include new features that improve upon its Business-to-Business (B2B) functionality.
The ability to set specific user tiers is arguably one of the handiest Ecommerce features that business-to-business (B2B) webstores can take advantage of. So, it’s somewhat of a shame that so many online businesses fail to utilize this valuable customer management tactic.
Magento comes packed with plenty of fantastic Ecommerce features to manage a webstore, but unfortunately a multi-user account is not one of them.
It takes many hands to run a business, and the same is often true when it comes to Ecommerce websites. After all, managing an efficient online enterprise is no cakewalk, and sharing the workload of day-to-day operations can be invaluable with maintaining and expanding your website.

Wishlists are an often overlooked feature in Magento stores – and that’s dangerous! They are non-intrusive and reduce cart abandonment while making shopping more convenient for the customer. And Magento supports them for free, while useful extensions like Multiple Wishlist are also available.
Magento is one of the leading Ecommerce platforms that businesses use to build and manage their webstores. That makes them an enticing target for hackers, so Magento security is of utmost importance.
Attacks can lead to disrupted operations, compromised customer information and leaked financial data. When this happens, the credibility and reputation of your business can take a serious dive, and no company can afford that.
What’s the secret behind a successful online business? A payment system that’s not only secure but also enables you to allow your customers (and most importantly, your returning customers) an easy and fast checkout experience.
When it comes to managing online stores, there are many things to consider: from determining your target audience to setting up your products and starting to sell. Most importantly, you have to establish a trustworthy relationship with your customers.
