Magento 2 is a powerful e-commerce platform, but it is also a rather sophisticated one. These e-commerce websites can take months to set up and prepare and usually include the help of someone who specializes in Magento or e-commerce.
Magento was developed in 2007, released in 2008, and is currently the most popular Ecommerce platform in the world—there’s three bonus Magento facts for you, right out the gate.
Jokes aside, we’ve made it clear that at CreativeMinds we’re big fans of Magento, and after working with the platform for years, we’ve understandably become very familiar with it.
These days, everyone knows that social media is a powerful Ecommerce marketing tool, and of course the same is true when it comes to Magento social media marketing.
But the ways to integrate social media into Magento stores are often confusing for new users, along with users who are just starting to explore their webstore’s social media capabilities.
Having a FAQ webpage is an essential part of any Magento store. The existence of a FAQ webpage allows users to easily find answers to questions about your products or services, all located in one convenient place. Magento FAQ extensions also eliminate customer frustration and resolve issues quickly without the need of a customer support team.
With a Magento store, the ability to handle sub accounts is a valuable one. Having a multi-user Magento extension allows a single user account to have multiple sub user accounts easily. This is an essential extension for any Magento store.
One of the biggest challenges in developing Ecommerce solutions is balancing consistency and flexibility. Travis Sitzlar went through it when a client required a platform with an extreme degree of personalization.

Ecommerce sales representatives are the smiling face of countless online businesses.
These are the people working directly with customers to determine their needs, and find the best solutions for them. They’re experts at seeking out new leads to drive business, and ensuring that sales processes go smoothly.
Having the ability to manage orders easily and quickly in Magento is an essential function for any eCommerce store. Managing and editing already created orders without creating all new ones saves the admins lots of time.
We’re getting well into the new year, and online store owners are already looking to the future through Ecommerce predictions.
After all, following the trends and changes of an industry is an excellent way to get ahead of the competition, and with Ecommerce it’s no different.
Starting an Ecommerce is an exciting, but daunting task. Among the many questions that arise are “what is DropShipping?”, “how it relates to a marketplace?” and “is it adequate for my new business?”.
That is understandable, as the world of electronic commerce is imbued with what seems to be many difficult concepts and ideas. But they don’t have to be that hard: it’s all about taking some time to understand them.
Building a multi-vendor marketplace that entices online consumers is something any website owner can be proud of, but Ecommerce returns tend to take the wind out of their sales (pun absolutely intended).
With the holiday season wrapping up, we’ve now officially entered the time of the year where returns are most common. This can prove especially daunting to online sellers who recently enjoyed a profitable holiday season, only to see a notable portion of those sales come right back.
Learning to build an online marketplace like Amazon, Ebay, or Etsy, is easier now than it ever has been before.
In the past, the job of gathering and enabling multiple vendors to sell on a single website, providing them with an effective selling online environment to market their products, and managing the inner-workings of their active marketplace was no cake walk to say the least.
What internet entrepreneur doesn’t love to hear a good Ecommerce success story?
Forming a thriving online business is no simple task, but understanding how others did is a great way to start. You can learn a lot from their successes, and sometimes even more from their mistakes, making these kinds of stories invaluable for any ambitious Ecommerce businesses.
Mistakes happen, it’s a fact. What makes smart businesses stand out is not the number of errors committed, but their ability to learn from them. And better yet: to learn from others’ mistakes. We curated three scary Ecommerce mistake stories to help you avoid going through the same embarrassing – and costly – experiences.
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.
It’s no secret that when it comes to online selling, holiday Ecommerce is explosive. Not only did it make up roughly 20% of all retail sales last year, but it’s expected to keep growing.
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.
