The Visual Catalog Manager Magento extensionVisual Catalog Manager

The Visual Catalog Manager extension allows Magento administrators to manage categories and products within them in a new, highly-effective manner, which makes possible mass product actions and saves tons of time during Magento catalogs editing.

The module provides two modes of editing: “Visual Merchandiser” and “Smart Category”.

The Visual Merchandiser mode arranges products inside categories using drag-and-drop positioning of products. Other products automatically re-arrange their lines replacing removed or replaced items.

The Smart Category mode filters products by multiple attributes and allows you to assign these products to a new category or delete these products from an existing one. Furthermore, you can easily switch from the Smart Category to Visual Merchandiser mode and manage positions of products within newly created categories.

aheadWorks Extensions, Which Improve Native Magento Checkout

Editor’s note: Checkout page is the last thing that separates customers from their purchases and merchants from revenues. How to prevent customers from cart abandonment? The only rational answer is to improve checkout process constantly.
According to numerous statistics, customers abandon their carts because of several reasons:

  • Registration before checkout;
  • Numerous checkout steps;
  • Slow checkout;
  • Unclear delivery details;
  • High shipping costs;
  • Hidden charges.

It’s clear that people want to make a purchase quickly and easily, and checkout process plays here a very important role.

We have several extensions in our portfolio, which greatly enhance native Magento checkout functionality.

Checkout with a Single Click

The One Click Checkout extension for Magento allows customers to checkout directly from the product page or shopping cart page with just one click, skipping the annoying checkout steps. Buyers will not have to click the tiresome ‘Continue’ button, expediting the checkout process. All they need to do is login to their account and take advantage of one click ordering.

The One Click Checkout module doesn’t replace the standard Magento ‘Add to cart’ button. Instead it adds an additional ‘One Click Checkout’ button with the ability to choose billing and shipping addresses right on the product page.

When you click the ‘One Click Checkout’ button on any product page or cart page, a special pop-up window is invoked where you choose a payment method. You can also see the available number of reward points and use them during checkout, but it requires the Points & Rewards Magento extension installed on your store.

The One Click Checkout extension is super easy at installation and configuration. It will take you no more than a couple of minutes to configure the module to display the button to different customer groups and choose the available payment methods.
