Redirect Customers to the Other Store with the Correct Language in Magento

Apr 23, 2014820Pavel Novitsky

Our clients often ask us to make their multilanguage stores automatically redirect customers to the store that has the language of user’s browser. If it’s not possible to define the language or locale is not supported by the store, they want their customers to see the default store.

Model of realization is pretty simple – we check if browser delivers HTTP_ACCEPT_LANGUAGE header, find out what languages are preferable for user, compare browser language and languages supported by the store, and redirect customer to the relevant store. Read more

Mаgentо Coupons Report

Sep 18, 2013301Pavel Novitsky

It is sad to say, but in spite of the contemporary well developed and tool-rich marketing system, the main methods to attract customers and increase sales are still quite traditional and involve various promotions, sales, discounts and coupons.  Of course, Magento provides a sufficiently rich functionality for analysis and statistics.  But, as you know, there are never too many tools.  That is why we decided to make another present surprise to our sales managers.

Basically, there is, of course, available a default report on used coupons under the Reports – Sales – Coupons section.  But we have decided to push the limits and go further.  First of all, we will start with creating a module with a custom grid (check here for more details about creating a module).

We will describe only the main part – that is creating of a grid. Read more

Magento For Mobile Admins

Sep 11, 201386Pavel Novitsky

According to the world’s trends, online stores should be adapted for mobile users. We’ll pass without notice any disputes on this issue. We’ll also ignore the implementation methods: mobile and responsive themes, applications and separated mobile websites. Let’s simply agree with the following fact: mobile store customers should be just as satisfied with browsing experience as their desktop colleagues.

So be it, then – mobile themes are reasonably necessary. Let’s now find out who spends more time in the online store. Is it a fastidious customer? Or a competitor? Or maybe Tax Authorities? None of the above. This is an admin! But we care about our customers as much as we ignore our managers. I don’t mean that developers don’t think how to make easy-to-use admin panel. They work on desktop devices and develop admin panel for themselves. It sounds justly. But this justice doesn’t work for the admin who decided to check out how it goes in the store during the trip.

Mаgentо Books Day

Apr 24, 2013141Pavel Novitsky

Perhaps no one will argue that today Mаgentо ­is one of the most popular and perhaps the most functionally rich CMS in the field of E-commerce. However, it is also true that the information on how to administer and configure Mаgentо is often taken as some sort of a secret knowledge scattered by small pieces all over the Internet: you can find something on Magento Commerce, much has been already described at Magento Stack Exchange and Stack Overflow but still the main source for shop owners and beginning administrators are some scrappy blogs of some experienced developers.

Recently Pасkt Publishing has issued 2 books that can be regarded as a complete how-to guide for beginners. Read more

«Magento Mobile How-to» by Darko Goleš

Jan 15, 201358Pavel Novitsky

The phrase Mobile Commerce was originally coined in 1997, to mean “the delivery of electronic commerce capabilities directly into the consumer’s hand, anywhere, via wireless technology.” Many choose to think of Mobile Commerce as meaning “a retail outlet in your customer’s pocket.”

According to BI Intelligence in January 2013, 29% of mobile users have now made a purchase with their phones. Walmart  estimated that 40% of all visits to their internet shopping site in December 2012 were from a mobile device. Bank of America predicts $67.1 billion in purchases will be made from mobile devices by European and U.S. shoppers in 2015.
