Magento is a wonderful eCommerce platform that empowers brands to quickly grow and be successful. There are hundreds of Magento extensions to choose from, but only a select few that are truly essential to eCommerce success and improve both your website and online presence overall.
Out-of-the-box, Magento orders are an effective way for users to receive and manage customer purchases—but they’re far from perfect.
The default process for orders have a range of hassles that slow down order management, and create delays in the customer purchasing process. Thankfully, being open-source software, Magento is compatible with a range of extensions that provide faster orders.
Whether you’re looking to build your first online business, or are simply thinking about exploring new Ecommerce tools, there are tons of options when it comes to Ecommerce platforms
If you’ve done any prior searching around, you’ve probably come across the names Magento and OpenCart. They’re two of the most common Ecommerce platforms used to create online businesses, and they’re among the most effective.
After installing Magento for the first time, it’s easy to get a little lost with everything that comes next.
Installation was only the first step. Now it’s time to get your website ready to go live by adjusting it settings, establishing its design, and finding any extensions it may require.
Magento is a powerful eCommerce platform, but it truly excels when boosted by extensions.

It’s nearly the end-of-the-year and the holiday season is fast approaching, which means online merchants need to start thinking about their Holiday Ecommerce.
More than ever before, this holiday season is not the time to be missing out with your Ecommerce webstore.
Choosing an online store is the most important choice you can make for your business. Two of the biggest eCommerce platforms are Magento 2 and Shopify, and they are the best choices for launching a successful eCommerce business.
In today’s age of the internet, when someone wants to create a website they’re most likely going to use a content management system (CMS), such as WordPress and Magento.
In a Nutshell: CMS are handy online platforms which provide tools that let users build websites suited to their personal or business needs.
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. He tackled the challenge with the help of CreativeMinds’ Magento Multi-Vendor Marketplace, Magento Multi-User, and customization service.
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.
Dropshipping is quickly becoming a popular form of product fulfillment for online stores. Dropshipping is the process of when a story sells a product, purchases it from a third party and ships it to the consumer.
This means that the merchant never actually handles the product.
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.
The holiday season is a busy time for retail, and the eCommerce sector is no different. It proves to be the most profitable time of the year, with sales soaring to more than a trillion dollars recently. Post-holiday sales can be another story…, though.
The highs of the holiday season are often followed by a slump, as customer activity slows down.
So, after the holiday season has come and gone, online sellers are left with one major question: how to keep the post-holiday sales up once January arrives?
