Magento Marketplace Relaunch: Leaving Magento Connect in the Past

A few months ago, a new version of Magento Marketplace completely replaced Magento Connect and became the official repository of the Magento 1 and Magento 2 extensions and themes.

Magento Marketplace Relaunch: Leaving Magento Connect in the Past

One should note that this event happened with the release of renovated Magento Marketplace. In this article, we will consider the major features of the latest Magento Marketplace to find out what these changes mean for Magento store owners.

New Structure and Functionality

New Layout

The layout of the Marketplace site was radically transformed and became more user-friendly. The home page was made much shorter, and now, it contains fewer featured products compared to its previous version.

New Hosting Solutions

The new version of the Marketplace site is hosted on Amazon Web Services (AWS), the cloud-based hosting solution that perfectly suits the needs of various business domains.

In addition, this Marketplace version works with Fastly, which provides fast and secure content delivery processes, and New Relic, helping business owners monitor site performance in real-time.

UK Magento Stores Use Aheadworks Extensions

Continuing to feature the Magento projects made by our partners this time we’d like to highlight several websites made by our authorized partner – R & W Media.

UK Magento Stores Use Aheadworks Magento Extensions

Among several other directions the R & W Media Magento team does its best creating highly functional and good looking ecommerce websites from scratch and promotes its projects through multiple shopping channels.

Founded by two young entrepreneurs, Steven Wu and Craig Randall, the agency has a vast experience in Magento and the guys kindly agreed to share their passion about it with our blog readers.

Below we selected a few projects made by the company that take advantage of our Magento extensions.

R & W Media: “We’ve been working with Aheadworks for a very long time and trusted their products and services. When it came to implementing new functionality. We don’t like to reinvent the wheel. Rather than us having to build a new feature from scratch, it’s best to use an extension, that is easy to use and cost-effective. We also found when it came to looking for a particular feature, extensions typically offer more robust features with support included.

Aheadworks Products Made and Updated in August

Here comes the next business year and we’d like to tell our customers about the work that have been done by our team in August.

Aheadworks Products Made and Updated in August

Today we’ll present a new product and latest extension updates of Magento 1 and Magento 2 extensions.

Marketplace Theme for Magento 2

What is the ultimate goal of any Magento store? You may say that they are multiple, and will be be just right. However, if expressed in two plain words it’s something like ‘excellent look and great performance’. And that’s exactly what the new Marketplace Theme by Aheadworks is made for.

Aheadworks Updates June 2017

Even though June is the beginning of the bright summer and everyone wants to take so long-awaited vacation, we also know that shopping never stops and store development should be continued no matter where our dreams soar.

Aheadworks Updates June 2017

So, with no regrets and modest gladness we’d like to present you our latest extension updates of Magento 1 and Magento 2 extensions.

Magento 2 Extension Updates

In June we updated our three Magento 2 extensions with some beneficial features.

Coupon Code Generator 1.2

Flexible Rule Priorities
Coupon Code Generator 1.2 allows Magento admins to flexibly set up rule priority or even discard further rules applicable to particular shopping carts. The ‘Priority’ option allows establishing the sequence of rules and the ‘Discard Subsequent Rules’ option deactivates further shopping cart rules with lower priorities.

Store Translation Service for Your Magento

The first obstacle any international business faces is the language barrier, of course. The risk of misunderstanding is even higher for niche and vertical markets, where specific terms may have meanings different from the conventional understanding.

Store Translation Service for Your Magento

So, if you want to operate on local markets successfully, you need to translate your whole webstore correctly and professionally. Obviously, machine translation services, although quite powerful, are not able to accomplish this task and often store owners resort to human interpreters, which is too slow for the fast-paced ecommerce environment.

Store Translation Service

However, we can show you an alternative way combining both high translation speed and quality. The Store Translation Service we offer includes several translation layers adjusting all the aspects of the outcoming version starting from spelling corrections to particular lexicons involvement.
