Become BelVG Partner and Get a Discount Shower

February 27, 2012 Alex Huk Magento

Starting from this Monday, BelVG launches a new deal that is called the Partnership plan. We want to motivate our customers keeping and increasing the score of their purchases in our store and thereby to receive sufficient discounts for that. The Partnership program has separate plans for individual users and resellers with partners. The scheme is simple: when users reach different purchase amount levels, they get higher lifetime discounts according to chosen partnership plan.

You can find Partnership detailed terms in our Magento store scrolling to Partnership tab at the bottom of the left column.

Add-ons on Friday

February 24, 2012 Alex Huk Magento

Today we devote our Add-ons on Friday to the release of a free Magento Guests Catalog extension. Usually it makes no sense to describe advantages of free products as far as they are downloaded with the lightning speed right after their announcements. Nevertheless, there are several reasons why Guests Catalog extension will be a smart upgrade for your store.

Have you ever experienced difficulties trying to keep track of unregistered users who made a purchase in your online store? Perhaps, you wanted to send them some greetings to convert them into regular customers little by little and you had to browse through the whole store looking for their contact information. It is no more a problem. This free extension adds a new Guests tab to admin panel that stores all guest data at one place with the option of transporting it to CSV and Excel XML files.

Visit our Magento store and download Guests Catalog extension at no charge.

What Is Better Than Magento?

February 24, 2012 BelVG Team Magento

The February 2012 eCommerce survey tested Alexa top 1 Million websites and Alexa top 100K busiest sites for the use of 40 different eCommerce platforms and revealed the following trend – Magento leadership is dominant and indisputable. 20% share of eCommerce stores belongs entirely to Magento.

Its closest competitors in top 1 Million websites category, Zen Cart along with VirtueMart, are long way behind Magento back and only together make up 20% of the market.

Magento again is the most spread platform among top 100K websites. Traditional Enterprise products IBM WebSphereand Oracle’s ATG are twice less popular than Magento Enterprise edition.

Our Magento Store Celebrates its First Purchase Anniversary

February 23, 2012 Alex Huk Fun&Events, Magento

Besides the Defender of the Fatherland Day that is celebrated today in Russian-speaking world, BelVG has a big event to draw attention to. One year ago on February, 23, 2011 the first customer made a first purchase from our Magento store. So many things have been changed since that time and now our Magento store is one year old.

That’s a nice tradition to present gifts for anniversary. So here they are – we reward our first customer Miguel Gomard, who is the Co-founder of Myfab ecommerce website, with 20% lifetime discount for all our Magento products and services. We also grant BelVG first ten buyers 10% lifetime discount. Emails with congratulations and discount announcements will be sent to them directly.

Thanks for being with us all year round, dear customers!
