There’s no question that Magento 2 is currently the most efficient and powerful eCommerce platform on the planet.
Of course, Magento’s popularity is in no small part down to the sheer number of third-party extensions it has available. After all, every website is different, and the never-ending list of extensions and plugins allows you to create something completely tailored to your business.
However, there are literally thousands of plugins for you to choose from, and browsing through all of them can prove time consuming and, to be completely honest, a little overwhelming. Fortunately, VisionSharp have picked out the top 3 Magento plugins to increase sales and conversions in 2018:
One Step Checkout
This does exactly what it says on the tin. Retailers all over the world continue to be plagued by cart abandonment rate issues, with studies suggesting that around 75% of users end up leaving the site without buying anything, even after adding items to their basket.
The One Step Checkout plugin aims to reduce that number, making the checkout process as easy as possible for the user and reducing the risk of them giving up on their purchase. Ultimately, this helps to enhance the shopping experience and speed up the payment process, resulting in better sales figures and incredibly satisfied users.
We included Sales Pop in our blog on 2018’s essential Magento extensions, so it stands to reason it should makes its way onto this list, too.
This plugin is all about giving your website the appearance of being a busy, bustling store which is incredibly popular with other customers. In short, Sales Pop provides a small notification window which tells the user when someone else has bought something, showing them which items are most popular and creating a certain sense of urgency.
When customers can see that other users are enjoying your site and shopping with you, this will inevitably make them more likely to do so themselves.
There’s no doubt that Magento 2’s search functionality is a vast improvement on 1.0, however ElasticSearch lets you take it to the next level.
Delivering customised results, relevant auto-complete suggestions and a more comprehensive search function, ElasticSearch is an essential plugin for any sites with huge amounts of products for sale. Capable of searching for synonyms, plurals and special characters, this plugin makes it easier than ever for users to browse your store and find exactly what they’re looking for.
Obviously, such a fantastic user experience will result in an increase in sales.
However, before you can take advantage of these excellent plugins, you’ll need to find the best Magento agency in Manchester and create a killer website. Contact VisionSharp to learn more about our fantastic Magento services today!
