Everyone knows that Magento is the eCommerce Giant, while WordPress is it’s blogging, SEO, and CMS counterpart. So you, a smart and entrepreneurial store manager, have a carefully-crafted and functional Magento store for your eCommerce business.
On the other hand, you’ve built a beautiful WordPress website or blog that discusses, showcases, or reviews some of your Magento eCommerce products. Or, maybe you have a website that is built using a combination of both Magento and WordPress features.
If you are currently operating a website, and looking to integrate some e-commerce functionality into it to grow your business, you may be feeling a little overwhelmed with the variety of options that are available to choose from.
In this article, we are going to highlight some of the benefits and downsides of the two most popular solutions – Magento and WordPress- to help you make the right decision for your business.
A Magento live chat extension is one of the smartest business moves for eCommerce stores. It’s true that online shopping makes perusing, comparing, and purchasing products and services infinitely easier for customers.
However, one of the most common complaints about online stores is the lengthy process it takes to get your pressing questions answered – from how to find the perfect product, to specific shipping requests, to how to return an order.
Furthermore, CreativeMinds will be providing customer support services to users of Lucid Path’s Magento modules: The Sales Rep Commission Manager Modules (Basic, Pro and Deluxe), as well as the Lucid Path Extended Order Status Module.
In 2015, while the Magento platform keeps growing rapidly as the number one platform for eCommerce ventures, many retailers, business owners and entrepreneurs are seeking to take their business to the next level with Magento.
Whether you’re migrating an existing store or starting a new one from scratch, if you’re not a practicing Magento developer, starting out with Magento will require a learning curve as well as a good developer by your side.
It’s no surprise that Magento is the fastest growing eCommerce solution. Servicing more than 200,000 businesses worldwide, this robust open-source platform offers flexible, reliable, and scalable online stores for businesses of all sizes, needs, and budgets.

One of the most common questions that concern young entrepreneurs in our days, which they often direct to their older and more experienced colleagues is: What would you have done differently if you had to start your business all over again?
Surely, there are many answers to that question, but there is one in particular that seems to be a timeless one and keeps coming back.
Everyone who’s managing an online store has seen the scenario when customers show interest in your products, add them to their cart and just nearly buy them, but suddenly change their mind and abandon their shopping cart.
Ultimately aimed to encourage customers to leave reviews, this extension will help increase responsiveness by offering them a special coupon code that is activated upon approval of their customer review.
Rather, they have been busy working to further the extension to new heights, constantly adding new features that improve the user experience on all ends of the equation: The admin panel, the supplier’s dashboard, and finally, the customers.
Though black Friday is behind us, there is still a whole month of sales extravaganza ahead, and coupon codes are flying all over the place. According to a recently published Gallup survey, Americans will spend $781 in average on Christmas gifts this year, which are 600 Billion dollars in total!
Indeed, December is a great time to join the fun and catch some of those crazy shoppers in your net.

Product reviews have long been proven to be one of the most effective marketing tools for online eCommerce stores. They are genuine, original, and are highly valuable for customers thanks to their authenticity.
However, although it may seem like the obvious thing to do, getting your clients to deliver those hoped-for reviews can be quite a challenging task. This is why we have developed a Magento Reviews Extension that may help to make things easier- the CM Product reviews extension.

If you’re managing an eCommerce store, I bet you’ve seen this scenario happening before:
A customer enters your store- it could be a Magento store or any other eCommerce store online- and starts looking around. They like your products and they start collecting them onto the shopping cart. They reach check out and come as far as giving away their email address, but when it comes to the final stage of making the actual payment, they suddenly get cold feet and leave your store.
