Magento is one of the most powerful e-commerce platforms available. It comes packed with integrations and extensions that make retailers lives much easier. Here are 7 that we believe can help any online seller!
Social buying is now a full part of the e-commerce experience. Without the option to share a deal or to brag about a new purchase, retailers are missing out on sales and free publicity. That’s why Facebook Connect Extension is a must have for every e-commerce retailer. The extension is free and it’s also one of the top reviewed apps in the MagentoConnect marketplace.
Good customer support can be the difference in a one-time buyer and a life-long customer. If someone has a problem they should be able to reach a support technician. That’s why Olark is THE must-have support chat extension.
Olark’s on page chat allows the customer to have real-time conversations with a sales rep or support person. It is very easy to install and can be up and running in minutes!
This extension supports a large amount of WordPress integrations that all make life a little bit easier. It’s completely free, integrates your WordPress blog and works with your already existing Magento theme. Installation is a breeze and the bonus features that come with it make this a must-own integration.
ZenDesk is one of the most popular Magento integrations out there. If you want to provide the best customer support possible look no further.
ZenDesk is a cloud-based customer support system that allows you to keep track of customer interaction and support tickets all in one place. This will certainly help any company, big or small, get more organized immediately.
