Reason #1. New releases
You’ll receive this email in a day after we rolled out a new product. Example:
M2 Banner Slider
I hasten to share the joy — we’ve rolled out M2 Banner Slider. Using it, you can place as many banners as you want on any page you need. No programming skills are required.
No need to choose which offer to hide — show them all
Imagine that during the holiday shopping season you run several promotions at a time. You want to tell users about them on the store main page as most users visit it. The problem is that you don’t have enough space for all banners. So, you choose the one to show on the main page and display the rest on other pages.
The mod offers to create a slider out of several banners. It takes as much space as a single banner and you can display it on any page of the store. This way, you’ll make users aware of all your special offers no matter how many of them you have.
Animation pulls your audience in
People usually ignore static banners because of the so-called ad blindness. That’s why the extension makes sliders animated: they switch with effects and show additional information on hover.
It’s also useful to set automatic banners switching. Even if users decide not to click on the slider, they will still notice the animation and stop to see the offers.
Different sliders for different customer groups
For example, you can show banners with discounts for bulk orders to wholesalers, while general customers won’t see them. This way, users will see personalized offers only.
Reason #2. E-commerce tips
As in our blog posts, we share our experience and give tips that can be useful for online stores in emails too and send them weekly. Example:
Mods to increase sales in a clothing store
We collected 5 extensions that our customers acquire mostly for fashion & apparel stores. Point is, these mods bring offline convenience to online shopping: users find clothes quickly, determine the right size, choose the cloth and color zooming images, and proceed to the checkout.
helps customers find desired clothes. It adds filters to the catalog pages. Customers apply them to narrow down the search and pick among the clothes that meet their requirements.
speaks customers’ language. Users will only need to enter the first letter of the request to find the desired product. If a user makes a mistake or searches for a synonym, it will understand what is meant and show the right options.
allows customers to choose a color and see what clothes look like on the same page. If the chosen color is out-of-stock, it won’t appear in the list. This way, you won’t confuse customers.
helps customers choose the size of the clothes. It’s important to choose it right: if the size doesn’t fit, a user will have to return clothes. To do this, the mod adds size charts to product pages.
In the size chart, there are all the needed sizes with measurements. No need to leave the page and search for sizes on the Internet.
places goods in the catalog by clothes names and order numbers. It is enough to drag and drop items to the right place on the front end. This way you’ll quickly put a new product at the beginning of the catalog, and move out-of-stock goods to the end.
Essential mods to start building a store on Magento 2
In this email, we collected 5 extensions that our customers acquire mostly for new stores. Point is, these mods deal with core issues of new online stores:
– let customers quickly find products at your store,
– make more people complete the checkout,
– motivate people to buy and spend more,
– place your store higher in Google SERP.
helps customers find desired goods in the big catalog of products. It adds filters to store product pages based on any product attributes: price, colors, brands, sizes, etc. Customers apply filters to narrow the search down.
For example, a customer needs a red 45 inches suitcase between $50 and $150. The customer filters the catalog by price, color, and size and chooses among those suitcases that match the conditions.
One Step Checkout
complies numerous checkout pages into one. It’s easier for customers to fill in one checkout page, therefore more of them reach the final step of the checkout and buy at your store.
It’s important, as 26% of buyers abandon the cart during checkout because of a too long/complicated process.
Special Promotions Pro
offers 7 ready-made types of promotions. This way, you can set a new promotion once a week. Users will participate in promo campaigns and visit your store to check what’s new.
It is also convenient to check different types of promotions with different products and see what combinations work.
helps your store stand out in Google SERP. To make this the extension facilitates SEO activities: creates meta tags, adds rich snippets, redirects broken links to the right ones, automates cross-linking and configures unique product URLs. This way users will open your store first, not the competitors’ ones.
AJAX Shopping Cart
helps not to lose customers because of slow store loading. The core is AJAX technology which helps to add products to cart with no reloads. This way the store will save the revenue.
When customers add products to the default Magento cart, the page reloads. If the Internet connection is slow, it’s almost unbearable to wait until each reload ends. Some customers lose their temper and close the store tab.
When customers add products to cart, a special popup opens where customers configure attributes. No reloads, everything works smoothly.
Extensions to deal with lots of orders and lose none
These 3 extensions help admins not get confused in the huge order grid, deal with orders faster and provide better service.
Extended Order Grid M2
The extension helps to make the order grid clear so that admins don’t get confused and handle the orders faster.
The extension helps to exclude useless information from the grid
For example, admins can hide completed orders from the grid. Completed orders just lie in the grid and don’t need actions. There will be fewer orders in the grid, and the admins will navigate through it easier.
The extension helps to add important details to the grid
In the grid, admins display attributes of the order that they need to make decisions. Each order attribute becomes a separate column. Columns with no useful info can be hidden so that they don’t take up space.
The grid will become easier to understand and admins won’t have to open each order to find the needed information.
Order Attributes M2
The extension helps admins learn information about orders to make customers delighted. It attaches forms needed to complete orders right to the checkout page.
For example, a customer makes an order at the store. The store can deliver it the same day if they know the convenient delivery time. An admin calls the customer to learn it but the customer doesn’t answer.
As a result, the store delivers the order the next day and the customer is upset because the delivery took too long.
With the extension, admins won’t have to call customers. Customers will just pick the delivery time in the form at the checkout and the good will be delivered on time.
Custom Order Number M2
The module helps to make the order number informative: include the date of creation or country from which goods were ordered. Admins will understand what’s inside the order at a first glance and won’t have to enter each of them.
It also helps not to mix up invoices, shipping and credit memo documents of the orders. The mod will give each document the same number as the order, but with a prefix.
For example, invoice to the order 5-2020-03-10-GER will be INV-5-2020-03-10-GER.

Reason #3. Extension guides and updates
We guide our subscribers to correct usage of our extensions’ settings monthly. Example:
Extension that helps admins spend time on important tasks
We fully reinvented RMA for M2 — this extension makes the returning process easy for customers and for admins. When using it, admins don’t lose customers’ requests, research return reasons faster and have spare time for useful things.
Today we will show you how the extension makes it possible.
Customers fill in a form with important info
No need to call or email to start the returning process
To start the returning process customers fill in a short form. It takes 10 seconds.
Admins use the form to understand why they want to return goods, what is the condition of the items and whether customers would consider the exchange. They don’t need to contact customers to learn important info.
The extension keeps all the requests in a grid
Admins don’t lose return requests
When the store is huge, the number of returns gets bigger. It’s difficult for admins to manage them.
With the extension, admins won’t lose requests from customers, as they get the info in a special grid. No need to keep anything in mind. In the grid, admins track statuses of every return and access them in one click.
Admins see notifications about new requests and updates
Admins check the grid only when changes occur
The extension shows a notification when a new return request comes or when changes in an existing request occur. So, admins don’t check the grid every hour to control requests.
Requests that admins don’t need to control are sent to another grid
Admins work only with requests that need their actions
The extension automatically moves requests that require customers’ actions to a separate grid. So, admins see only the requests they need to work with. The lower the number of the requests is — the easier admins manage them.
Admins chat with customers right in the admin panel
Admins save time on communication with customers
There’s a chat inside each request. Admins don’t spend time on writing emails to customers or calling them, they chat instead. No need to leave the admin panel.
To respond faster in common situations, admins set quick replies.
For example, admins know that customers rarely send photos of the good they want to return. So, they set the reply:
“Please provide us with additional details and attach photos if possible so that we could approve your request.”
Now they ask to send photos in one click and don’t create custom messages every time.
Next time we’ll show you how RMA for M2 leaves a pleasant impression on customers and makes them come back to the store.
