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.
If you’re managing an online store on Magento, and you’re looking to improve the general functionality of your store, here are the top 5 Magento eCommerce extensions that will increase your conversion rates and boost your sales, as recommended by our brilliant team of Magento certified developers!
How can product reviews help your site? There are a lot of ways!
Product reviews are one of the most trusted sources of information for customers, as they originate from people who have actually used the product and are not affiliated with the store. Good product reviews are well known for their power to increase conversion rates and generate sales, as they make both your product, shipping, and customer service far more reliable.
The challenge is getting your customers to leave their product review in the first place. No, this doesn’t mean sending email after email in an effort to annoy the customer into leaving a review. It can be as simple as providing an incentive for customers to leave reviews.

A lot of times before you finish developing your Magento store, it just so happens that you are already running a WordPress blog. This means that you actually have an online presence already established when you launch your new store. Having both a store and the blog is successful Magento and WordPress Integration.
Also, after your store is live and selling, you will still want to maintain your WordPress blog. This usually takes you to the point of decision: should I just leave it where it is, or should I integrate it as a blog inside my Magento store? This is not an easy answer, as the right answer as always, is that it depends.
