Mend all gaps on your website.

Web-analytics can show you 'bad places' of the website. Using small tips in blocks will help customers get through website drawbacks and will lead them to the right way.

Speedy notifications tool.

Easy and efficient way to display a piece of content on your website. For example some important notice like "our store went on holidays for this week" or marketing information like "Cross-promotion offer for camera selling stores" (you can place it, if you sell camera cases).

Control of customers' moves.

Help customers to navigate through the website by pointing them on what is profitable for you. Place tips for next moves, e.g. click "camera" category to view our special offer or to get a present.

Make your website helpful for users.

Create Magento static blocks and place them everywhere you need on the website, so it will become more understandable and user-friendly.

Rich content blocks' functionality.

Admin panel based blocks creation.

No more template or layout editing - now you can do it all from admin panel!


Use content of all kinds:
  • Both text and images can be used
  • Magento variables and widgets are at your disposal
  • You are free to format the blocks either with the help of wysiwyg or html
  • Highly-configurable preset positions for blocks.

    Each of the positions can have individual content per store view, some positions can additionally have individual content per product category.

    Track the number of views for each block.

    Gathering statistics on how many times the blocks get displayed might help to measure audience reach and other metrics.

    Specify time interval for blocks display.

    It is possible to indicate 'From' and 'To' dates for blocks display, so if you would like to show some blocks only during a specific period - you can do this.

    Very easy block and position management.
    13+ available positions
    You can assign unlimited number of blocks to each position
    A block can be deleted/added to a position with just ticking a checkbox

    General Questions

    How can I pay for Amasty extensions?

    You can pay for our extensions in any convenient for you way as a full range of payment methods are supported. The most common means are credit card or PayPal. Security and fraud protection are guaranteed.

    What is the license policy? On how many websites can I use Amasty extensions?

    Our license allows you to use a single extension license on one Magento installation.

    Extension is not domain related, but installation related. If you run several domains on the same instance of Magento, you can use one extension license. However if you run each website on a new installation of Magento, you need separate license for each of them.

    The full end-user license agreement is located here: http://amasty.com/license.html

    How to install Magento extension by Amasty?

    Each Amasty extension pack includes module files, an installation guide, a user guide and license text. Depending on the extension you purchase, there also may be import files which can be used by you as examples.

    Amasty extensions are easy to install. All you need is to have FTP/SSH access details, and follow 3 steps to complete.

    • Unpack a "zip" file you download.
    • Upload all files from the "Step 1" and then from the "Step 2" folders to the root folder of your Magento installation.
    • Clear the cache.

    If you are using code compilation, before installing the extension it's necessary to disable it! After you install, click the "Run Compilation Process" button in Admin - System - Tools - Compilation to recompile.

    Please also check the extensions installation video guide:

    Still unsure? Have complicated configurations or a lot of modules? We can offer professional installation service as well!

    Can I test an Amasty extension on a staging site before transferring it to a live one?

    Yes, you can install any Amasty extension on a test site and configure all the settings there before doing it on your live store.

    Can I get a refund if an extension doesn’t suit me?

    Absolutely. Amasty provides a 30-day money back guarantee. No risks for you.

    Will I get any other benefits?

    Yes! The good news is that every Amasty customer becomes a member of our Loyalty Program and can get a discount of up to 15%. You can find more information about it on the Program page. This is our way to thank you for being our client.

    Helpful CMS enhancement
    Usually I don’t expect too much from free extensions; often even paid ones can give you a lot of trouble. I installed this addon to get away from time-consuming routine. You know, there is always something to do – move a block here, add banner there, it seemed endless. So if there is a free solution to all of that, why not to try it?
    In general, the module is good, it is also a nice marketing tool, ‘cause now you can be sure that customers won’t miss giveaways or discounts. Banner editor is really easy to use, and you can place as much promos, as you need.
    A fly in the ointment is that working with free extensions is, perhaps, not a priority for the support. We had an issue with a pre-defined position on our custom theme, and had to wait for help. Now everything is ok though. They gave us a few tips, and we fixed it all by ourselves.

    A good way to increase average order value
    Actually I never expect too much from free extensions. This one appeared to be a pleasant surprise, such a workhorse for our store. Although, as far as I see – the support of free extensions is not of high priority, their managers instantly replied to my ticket and helped with my problem.
    I doubt that I’d installed the extension if it wasn’t free, but anyway I do recommend it anyone.

    The blocks are easily placed, edited and managed. The possibility of viewing the statistics foe each block allows me track which blocks with content work better for my store. Since I installed the module I haven't noticed any bugs or inconveniences.

    Makes work with content as easy as it can be
    I've been always annoyed by editing my content in html, it took a lot of time, so I'm really glad this module enables me edit my content blocks using wysiwyg. I've been using it for 4 months already and I'm totally satisfied.
