Points and Rewards Extension by aheadWorks Becomes More Functional

Editor’s note: Merchants often ask themselves: who are our customers? A lot of books and posts examine this question. As for me, after reading you always catch yourself thinking that these notorious men are still in the shade. However, the fact is that they are people. And people are the customers of that sort who mostly like giving less and getting more. This is exactly the thing you can give them with Points and Rewards extension.

Points and Rewards Magento extension by aheadWorks gives you an excellent opportunity to attract new customers and retain the existing ones. Comprehensive functionality and simplicity of this extension are the keystones of its popularity. Let’s revise the features.

Boost the Effectiveness of One Step Checkout with 7 Magento Extensions

Recently we have released the One Step Checkout Magento extension. As you have probably guessed (or know), this must-have module reduces the number of checkout steps and allows customers to buy products in one simple click.

Besides a lot of cool features, One Step Checkout has one more great advantage – it is compatible with 7 aheadWorks extensions for Magento! Together they make shopping in your store much easier and faster for customers. Keep reading to learn all the details!

AJAX Cart Pro

Everybody knows how cross-sells and up-sells can boost sales. The Checkout page is a great possibility to stimulate your customers to spend more. The One Step Checkout extension doesn’t remove the related products block, so your customers can always add something else to cart until they click the Place Order button.

Nevertheless, there is one important “but” – interested in related product, customers leave the checkout page and can never come back! They can be distracted by various product options or change their mind, or… anything else can prevent them from completing the order. It means that all your efforts to reduce the number of abandoned carts are in vain!

The AJAX Cart Pro extension from aheadWorks can rescue you and your business in these situations. No annoying redirections, no distracting moves. With AJAX Cart Pro installed, your customers can add related products to cart and select all required options directly on the checkout page.
