Obvious advantages of using the extension

Stimulate customers to buy products asap

People are collective beings, so if they see actions of similar species they instinctively want to repeat them. Show these actions with our  Magento activity stream module :) Also if customers see that a definite product is being bought several times, they become afraid that the product is running out of stock soon and will buy it immediately.

Sell the products you need to sell

With 'Random Actions' feature our Magento live stream extension provides, you'll be able to unload the stock of unpopular products or sell the products you want. You can specify IDs of products, which will be shown in user activity block  together with the products that people actually buy and add to wishlists.

Use entire wishlist functionality

Stimulate customers to add products to wishlist. Use data about shoppers' preferences to plan inventory or create remarketing lists for contextual advertising.

Configure the extension to your taste

Decide when to show notifications to customers

There are 2 ways to set the display of user activity block notifications in Magento live stream:

  • Specify the time period which customers should spend on the page before the user activity notifications are displayed.
  • Indicate the percentage of scrolled page when the notifications get displayed.

Choose whether to show the alerts or not

Magento live stream extension will display notifications 1 at a time, so the customers won't be annoyed by pop-up windows.


Show max 2 user activity notifications on one page

If you want to show 2 notifications at once, you should specify "Notification Display Timeout" 1-2 seconds, and "Display Notification If Page Scrolled to %" fewer than 40%. In this case 2 random, but different notifications will be shown.

magento user messages block

Set notification display timeout

Choose time in seconds during which a notification is displayed. There's no limit for this time period.

Choose the notification placement

You can show the notifications in the following positions:

  • Bottom right
  • Top right
  • Bottom left
  • Top left
  • Bottom center
  • Top center

There are 4 types of user activity notifications:

1. Two types displayed on product page:

  • Product last purchased time

For example, ‘This product was last purchased N time ago’.

  • Quantity purchased for a period

For this notification you can specify the period in hours in which the statistics of purchased products will be counted and shown. For example, ‘This product was purchased N times for the last N hours’.

2. Two types displayed on category page:

  • Last viewed in Category

For instance, ‘Product X in this category was just viewed by another customer’.

  • Last purchased in category

The standard message is "Last product sold from this category - product X".

Specify your own texts for different Magento user activity  messages

In examples above you can see standard user activity messages for notifications. Of course, you can change them according to your preferences.

Select which notification to Display

You can choose which type of notification to enable. For example, you can disable recently viewed  products in category  and 'Product last purchased time' messages, so customers will see only 2 other types of notifications - 'Last purchased in category' and 'Quantity purchased for a period'.

Add the products you want to the notification flow

You can specify IDs of products to be randomly added to the Magento activity stream together with the actions on products, which are really done by customers. Also you have an ability to specify the percent of random actions. This may be very helpful if you want to stimulate sales of a particular product or clear your stock. For example, you can set 'Percentage of Random Products' equal to 50%. This means that in 50% of cases customers will see actions with random products, generated by the extension. And in other 50% of cases - the true ones, done by customers.

Wishlist activity notifications

You have an ability to show on front of Magento customer activity in wishlists.. The notifications will be displayed on all pages except the cart page. For example, you can display user activity messages of the kind "Product X was just added to the wishlist by someone else".

You can use in the notifications such variables as:

{PRODUCT} - product name;
{COUNT} {TIME} – the number of times a product was sold;
{TIME} – the period of time during which it was sold;
{PERIOD} - period in hours;

Show Magento activity log sidebar to keep customers up to date

Grouped actions in Activity log

If 2 or more identical actions are performed in the store, Activity Log won't show 2 identical notifications, it will show just one. E.g. if 4 reviews get written in a row, the module will show one notification ‘Review was written 4 times’ instead of 4 identical notifications one by one. This way the activity log will be more diversified and interesting to read for customers.

Set the number of notifications in the activity log window

The Activity Log will be shown on all pages except the cart page. You can specify the number of actions to display in the Activity Log, there's no limit for them.

Choose message types to display in the Activity Log window

  • New customer, e.g. New customer registered in the store.
  • Adding a product to cart, for example, Product X added to cart.
  • New review, for instance, New review has just been submitted for product X.
  • Sold product, e.g. Product X was purchased.

Worth having
Maintaining credibility of your store is not an easy task even with the greatest marketing and advertising strategy. This is why I constantly look for any tool to help customers feel more comfortable on my webstore. This ext really looks like a boon for us. It creates the atmosphere of a real offline store by allowing customers to see other people browsing the site making purchases. I noticed that customers tend to stay longer on our site now. Hopefully it is so but we’ve just installed the module, and it’s too early to make any conclusions.
Random actions feature looks nice for the time when you need to empty the stock. I haven’t tried it yet, and have high expectations)
Good marketing app that works
I can’t say this is the app I can’t live without, as it’s more about marketing gimmicks, rather than about store functionality. But it appeared to be a good sales booster and helped us sti mulate customers to grab the ‘most popular’ products.
However, while adjusting notifications display we faced some minor issues with their flexible settings, but they were eliminated within a couple of hours by the support manager. Sales statistics proved the app’s effectiveness and now we can faster sell out the items that don’t enjoy great popularity.
The only thing I’d recommend to other merchants is to a/b test different types of notification texts, the place of their display as well as the display frequency. It took us about a month to find the ideal scheme.
Magento Connect
Very nice! It seems to help.
Our customers are really clicking on this floating notifications. They are nice, not annoying. Something similar to what they have on hotels booking websites. This works great for my type of products - excursion bookings.
