AJAX Cart Pro 2.2 – now with product name in confirmation dialog

The just released version of AJAX Cart Pro makes shopping in your store even faster. Since v.2.2, the extension supports configurable products and items with custom options. It means that when purchasing such goods, consumers won’t be redirected from category to product page – they will be able to specify the item’s options from the pop-up window instead.

Moreover, now product name is shown in confirmation dialog so that customers can make sure whether they are adding the right product to cart.

Due to core optimization and some minor bugfixes, the AJAX Cart Pro extension has become more stable.

Please, visit the extension page and learn more about AJAX Cart Pro.

AJAX Cart Pro 2.1 released

We are glad to announce that today AJAX Cart Pro v.2.1 has been released. In the new version, a feature of Configurable timer to close pop-up confirmation dialog has been implemented. It means that now you can define after what time the confirm dialog box will be automatically closed.

 

Confirmation Dialog

 

Since version 2.1 AJAX Cart Pro has expanded its “sphere of activity” – now this aheadWorks extension works on the Compare Products and Wishlist pages as well. Thus having compared products or having gone to the My Wishlist page, customers can add appealing items to cart and avoid additional pages loading.

 

 

Moreover, a minor bug has been fixed and now downloadable products are added correctly on Shopping Cart page.

Please, find the latest version of AJAX Cart Pro on the extension page.

New Extensions

Minimum Advertised Price

The minimum price set by the manufacturer isn’t the bottom line any more! With the Minimum Advertised Price extension by aheadWorks you can sell products at the price you want.

Suppliers and retailers quite often stipulate the lowest price an item is allowed to be advertised at. But sometimes in-store prices can be really lower than allowed by the suppliers, but may not be displayed in online advertising. The Minimum Advertised Price extension helps you to escape the conflicts with the manufacturers and sell products at the prices you wish.

Minimum Advertised Price adds a special Check Price button instead of the product price. Having clicked this button, you add an item to the shopping cart, and only then the required price becomes visible.

Some features are:

  • Fast loading AJAX layer
  • Completely configurable layer text, images and buttons
  • Configurable independent category/search/product page views
  • Supports direct HTML embedding
  • Fully customizable buttons and actions
  • Ability to include any content that Magento CMS can involve
  • 100% meets Minimum Advertised Price implementation standards
  • Comes with detailed setup and configuration documentation

To learn the whole list of Minimum Advertised Price features please visit the extension page.
