The Benefits of Cross Selling

The Benefits of Cross Selling

by Sheryl Davis, Glew

What is Cross Selling?

Cross Selling is a sales tactic that encourages a shopper to buy complementary products.

Think about shopping for tomatoes at a grocery store. It’s common for stores to display items, such as cheese, among an aisle devoted to vegetables. Despite the store having a section specifically for cheese, growthstore managers strategically position cheese among the tomatoes knowing that the combination may tempt hungry customers. The product placement makes it easy for customers to find related items and impulsively pick up goods while shopping. In doing so, stores drive increases to the order value while reminding shoppers that certain products go well together.

Just like cross-selling products in brick and mortar stores, online tactics should bring convenience and ideas to the shopper while also proving to be lucrative for the retailer.

According to research by software provider Monetate, product suggestions can:

Increase revenue up to 300%

Boost conversions by up to 150%

Increase Average Order Value by as much as 50%

Benefits of Cross Selling

Cross selling benefits both stores and customers. For stores, it increases Average Order Value (AOV) and Benefitstherefore benefits revenue. Larger orders also often allow stores to cut down on packaging and shipping costs by consolidating items in a box that may have otherwise been partially full. And keep in mind that driving your AOV higher will increase the Lifetime Value of customers, often providing incremental capital that can be used to market to those customers.

But the good news is that cross selling doesn’t just benefit your store, it also benefits your customers! Shoppers can find items faster when they are recommended on individual product pages. Plus, a well-paired product recommendation can bring a customer’s attention to a complimentary product that they might not have known existed. Adding value to your customer’s experience while making more money? It’s a no brainer.

How to Get Started

1) Use a tool that analyzes purchasing behavior. With a breakdown of products that are most commonly purchased together you can set your cross sale recommendations without any guesswork.

Frequantly-Bought-Together-(for-web)2) Install a Magento extension that will display product recommendations. Extendware’s “Frequently Bought Together” and “Who Viewed This Also Viewed” extensions are built for Magento stores to cross sell on every product page.

3) Monitor items that are selling effectively and consider adding those items to your store as a bundle. You could offer a small discount when purchasing the items Who-Viewed-This-Also-Viewed-(for-web)together, or pull together kits for items to quickly be purchased at once.

Flexible rounding rules (none, floor, ceiling, rounding) and the ability to add a value after the price modification (0.99, 0.50, etc) allow you to guarantee pricing such as $45.99 or $54.50. For example, you can increase all prices by 5%, round down (floor), and add 0.99 so prices are of the form $XX.99. This greatly reduces management time.

Edit Prices Relative to Other Prices or Cost

Copy / Delete Tier / Group Prices 
Tier /group prices are very time consuming to create for every single product. Many times products have the same tier / group prices.

Two-way – selected products are (un)linked to inputted product and vice-versa
Multi-way – all products are (un)linked to each other
Copy Custom Options
Creating the same custom options for every product is a very time consuming task. With Bulk Product Actions you can copy the custom options from one product to another. You can even choose whether you will replace any existing custom options or simply add to whatever custom options already exist.

Reduce bandwidth, CPU, and crawling time with Cache Crawler/Warmer

The web contains trillions and trillions of pages, which can make it hard for your customers to find your store at times. We rely heavily on Google to find things for us and Google is able to do this with something called a Web Crawler.

Stores with a high number of unique pages compared to their traffic will tend to have a low hit rate and as a result caching solutions are not effective. The Magento Cache Crawler solves this by crawling and pre-caching the pages on your site, which will increase the cache hit rate

Here are some more great features of the Cache Warmer/Crawler Extension

Efficiently Crawl Your Magento Store to Warm Your Caches
The crawler will only access each page one time during a crawl session to ensure there is no duplicate effort. In addition, pages your users cannot access (disabled products, children of configurable products) will not be crawled.

Crawl All Your Important Pages
Crawl CMS pages, catalog pages, and product pages. When used with the Full Page Cache, all your layered navigation filter options, deep catalog pages, searches, and 3rd party extensions will be crawled without any further configuration.

Ensure That Server Load on the Server Does Not Become High
A crawler increases server load in exchange for faster page speed. If there are lots of things happening on the server, then it can create high server load. The crawler can detect this and automatically pause itself and automatically restart when the server load reduces. This ensures that the crawler does not compete with user traffic for server resources!

Cache Warmer/Crawler
Cache Warmer/Crawler

Crawl as Quickly as Possible Using Multiple Crawler Threads
Multiple threads will be used which can reduce the total crawl time by 10 times or more.

Crawl as Logged in Users
Do you show different content to logged in users? If so, it might make sense to crawl as a logged in user so their cache can be warmed. You can now easily select which customer group you want to crawl.

Crawl Out-of-Schedule Jobs By Manually Adding It
Did you flush the cache and need to run a job real quick even though it is not scheduled yet? No problem, you can easily add a manual job that will run immediately.

Don’t Crawl Disabled / Hidden / Out-of-Stock Products
Ensure you don’t waste resources crawling products that would be infrequently viewed or not viewable at all!

Filter Out Generated URLs by URL Type
Easily filter out certain pages such as category pages or cms pages or product pages from being added to the queue. This is useful if you only want to crawl category pages or certain page types.

Always View the Status of Crawls and Manage Crawls Using an Easy Interface
Easily view past crawls, currently running crawls, and queued crawls. Pause or disable crawls. Change the number of threads used. View the number of crawled URLs, the source of the URLs, and view performance metrics such as the number of crawled URLs per minute.

View current and past crawler jobs
View current and past crawler jobs

Filter Out any URL by Regular Expression
Easily ensure that URLs that match a regular expression will not be crawled. This is useful if you do not want certain pages to be crawled.

Fully Support Crawling of HTTPS Secure URLs
Is your site running in secure mode on the frontend? The crawler will crawl your secure pages too.

Reduces Bandwidth and CPU Usage During Crawls
When combined with our Full Page Cache there will be reduced bandwidth and processing done when loading uncached pages loaded by the crawler process.

Flush Caches Prior to Crawling
Flushing Magento caches prior to crawling is important to ensure that the crawler crawled pages are the most up-to-date.

Create Discounts and Promotions with Shopping Cart Price Rules

 

 

 

I think many can agree that default Magento promotions are pretty boring and outdated, and what’s worse is…you can’t create new ones! They are very standard and don’t offer much in the way of creativity, which really cancels out the look and feel of a unique website. Extendware has the solution with Shopping Cart Price Rules, allowing you to offer 24 completely new discount actions. This way you can keep your customers engaged during the most important part of the transaction…the sale!

 

Here are some of the great promotions you can add with this software. We shall use a clothing store as an example.

  • “Buy one product and get another product with X discount”
  • “Buy two shirts and receive the 3rd for 50% off”
  • “Buy 5 products for the normal price and get 20% off each additional product
  • “Get $15 off for every $150 spent”
  • “Buy 2 pairs of pants and get the 3rd for $10”
  • “Buy a shirt and pants for $75 total”
  • “All hats for $5.99”

Discounting merchandise this way can be extremely effective. Consumers love a deal and with the options and templates provided here, you can change your promotions as often as you want and see what works and what doesn’t.  You can specify exact products or be more general and specify the categories. (i.e. Black Nike Sneakers vs. Tennis Shoes)

More Great Features of Shopping Cart Price Rules

More Easily Manage Your Promotions
Shopping Cart Price Rules can be deleted or inactivated in bulk, have it’s priority changed, or have it’s date start / expiration changed. This can all be done by the enhanced shopping cart price rules grid that is included.

Create “Buy One Product and Get Another Product with X Discount”.
Easily create discounts such as “Buy 2 pants and get a tie for 20% off” or “Buy 3 pants and get a tie for $15.00” etc. You can create a variety of discounts that are conditioned on purchasing another product. You can discount by either percent or fixed discount or make it a fixed price.

Create Promotions Like “Buy 2 Shirts and Receive the 3rd for 50% Off”
Creating promotions in a series (every 2nd, every 3rd, etc) which allows promotions such as “buy 3 products and the 3rd receive 20% discount”. You can select whole categories or select individual products to determine which are eligible. You can also discount by a percentage, a fixed amount, or set the discounted product to a certain price.

Perform-a-variety-of-bulk-actions
Perform-a-variety-of-bulk-actions

Don’t Apply Promotions to Products with a Special Price
Products with a special price are usually already deeply discounted, so discounting them further would mean the product would be sold for a loss. Easily ensure that products with a special price do not receive any further discounts.

Create Discounts for the Cheapest / Most Expensive Product in the Cart
It is very popular to create general discounts based on most / least expensive product in the cart. For example, buy any 3 shoes and the cheapest (or most expensive) shoe will receive a 10% discount. You can use any combination you want to create powerful and motivating discounts based on cheapest / most expensive products.

Create Promotions like “Buy 5 Products at Normal Price and Get 20% / $20 Off Each Additional Product”
Encourage large orders by giving a discount after a certain quantity has been purchased using our After-N discount actions. For example, “all shirts purchased after 5 cost $20.00 / receive 10% off / etc” or even “buy 3 belts and every belt after will cost $10.00”. As you can imagine, this is a powerful way to increase sales.

Create Fixed Price Promotions Like “Buy Two Pants and the 3rd Costs $10.00 (or is Free)”
Fixed price discounts are especially powerful. Using our Each-Nth discounts (each 2nd product, 3rd product, etc) it is very easy to create common promotions such as buy 1 shirt and get the 2nd for $10.00. Or even something like buy 5 ties and receive the 6th for free.

Create-Fixed-Price-Promotions-Like-'Buy-Two-Pants-and-the-3rd-Costs-$10.00
Create-Fixed-Price-Promotions-Like-‘Buy-Two-Pants-and-the-3rd-Costs-$10.00

Give Discounts Based on Money Spent Such as Get $10.00 Off for Every $100.00 Spent
Encourage large orders by giving a discount after a certain quantity has been purchased. For example, “buy any 5 shirts at full price and each additional shirt will receive a 20% discount” or even “buy 3 pants and every pants after that will cost $30.00”. As you can imagine, this is a powerful way to increase sales.

Create a Fixed Price Promotion for a Set of Products Like “Buy a Keyboard and a Mouse for $100.00”
A great way to generate sales is to offer a fixed price for a certain set of products. You can easily do this with our Set Discount Accounts. You can specify the exact products or you can specify the categories.

Create Fixed Discounts for a Group Such as “Buy Any 5 Shirts for $100.00”
Discounts can also be applied to a group of products. You can specify the products that are valid for the group by category or individually.

Offer Fixed Discount Amount for Each 2nd / 3rd / etc Product Such as “Buy 3 Shirts and Get $20.00 of the 3rd Shirt”
In addition to using our Each-Nth discount account this will work with our After-Nth discount action so you can create a promotion like “Buy 3 shirts and every shirt purchased after 3 will receive $10.00 off”.

Create a Promotion For a Set of Products Such as “Buy the Pants and Shoes Together and Get 20% off Each”
Another way to discount when using our Set discount action is to give a percent off when the full set of products is in the cart. A product set can be two products from two different categories or the specific products can be defined.

select-individual-products-or-whole-categories
select-individual-products-or-whole-categories

Apply Discounts Only to Products with Specific Custom Options
Discount can be set to only apply to products with a specific custom option or if the custom option value is set to a specific value. For example, if you sell electronics and a warranty is a custom option, then you can have a discount only if the warranty is selected.

Support for Multiple Stores
If you have 1 store or 100 stores within your Magento installation it will work for each store.

Support for Multiple Currency and Tax Rules
Multiple currencies and tax rules are supported for promotions created with Shopping Cart Price Rules.

Support-for-Multiple-Currency-and-Tax-Rules
Support-for-Multiple-Currency-and-Tax-Rules

The Shopping Cart Price Rules extension from Extendware also has an enhanced promotions grid to help you organize and manage the promotions you are running or plan to run. Also it will support multiple currencies and tax rules which makes it easy for any region.

Reduce Page Size, Bandwidth, Server Load and More with the Minify Js/Css Extension for Magento

One of the worst feelings one can have is jumping on a website to make a purchase and the process is slower than molasses dripping out of a jar! Faster load times are ideal for online businesses and ensures your customers will stay and make purchases rather than give up and throw their laptop out the window in frustration…or worse, go to your competitor!

A process called Minification will help to alleviate all of these issues. It simply means that all of the unnecessary characters in your page’s source code will be extracted and your store pages will be as compact as possible when sent over the internet.

Minify Technologies
Minify Technologies

With Minify Js/CSS HTML you can :

Minify Your Javascript, CSS, and HTML

The Minify Js / CSS extension reduces the size of your Javascript, CSS, and HTML using 1 of 4 minify technologies (JSMin, JSMin Plus, YUI Compressor, and Closure Compiler). These technologies work by removing comments, rewriting CSS statements in a more efficient manner, removing white space, and rewriting Javascript variables. This extension will even minify your inline JS / CSS. On a default Magento Commerce install, you can expect the following (as shown in the graph found in the product image gallery):

Ability to Defer Loading of Javascript Loading for Even Faster Loading

Easily enable javascript deferment to eliminate render-blocking javaScript so that your page loads will not block while waiting for javascript to load. This can greatly improve google page speed score for javascript compatible with deferred loading.

Minify Inline Javascript                                                                               

Javascript is only half the story. The HTML and Javascript / CSS that are inside of each of your pages are equally important. Importantly, this data cannot be cached by the browser, so it must be downloaded on every page request. Other solutions completely ignore inline data.

Versioning of JS / CSS Files                                                                            

Ensure your content is always up-to-date. No need to flush caches or wait for files to be updated on the frontend. Your files will show any changes you have made immediately.

Intelligently Combine Javascript

On a default Magento Commerce install, the number of Web server requests will be reduced by 16 (this number is usually even higher on a non-default install). This significantly reduces request latency and bandwidth and marginally reduces the HTML size of page. Also, it means your Web server will not have to work as hard which will allow you to server more requests per second.
Do not compare the Extendware Minify JS / CSS extension’s ability to combine files with other modules.

Compress your Javascript and CSS                                                                        

Your Javascript and CSS will be compressed using 3 different compression algorithms (gzip, gzdefalt, and gzcompress). All files are pre-compressed, so they are not compressed on a per-request basis. This reduces latency and CPU load and speeds up high traffic Web sites.

Ability to Change Hostnames
Ability to Change Hostnames

Minify Non-Standard JS / CSS Files                                                                      

Some themes directly output javascript / css files to the theme instead of following Magento standards. Usually these cannot be minified, but with our technology they can be minified!

Improve the Browser Cache Management of Javascript / CSS files 

Javascript and CSS files have forever expiries added to them. This means that once downloaded the user will never have to make another request for your Javascript and CSS. This reduces latency, bandwidth, and your server load. When making changes to files the changes will still appear immediately on the site as the filenames will change.

Ability to Change Hostnames of URLs

Browsers generally have a 2-5 connection limit per hostname. For this reason it makes sense to use mutliple hostnames, so the browser will make more connections which can reduce download time. We support selecting custom hostnames for certain urls to maximize the number of browser connections.

Choose the Minification Algorithms that is Best for Your Needs

Different algorithmns have different characteristics and requirements. We don’t limit your choice. We include them all so that your site can be optimized as much as possible.

Compatible With Almost All CDNs                                                                          

Minifying javascript / css is compatible even if you use a content delivery network.

3 Different Compression Algorithms

So simply install the Minify Js / CSS extension and reduce page size, bandwidth, request count, and server load and your customers will thank you!

If you can believe it, the above list is not a complete list of features. Please try the online demo or install as a install as a risk free trial and take advantage of our risk-free 30 day refund guarantee to fully see the power and elegance of the Minify JSS/CSS extension.

Why So Slow, Magento? Speed Up Magento With Extendware Full Page Cache Extension

What is “Full Page Cache” for Magento?

We all know that patience is a virtue; unfortunately we all know that many customers do not care about waiting around for your store to load, they want it NOW! Even the smallest bug or delay causes decreased conversions and lower sales.

It is funny to think that the average customer will wait 10 minutes in line at a store, but more than 12 seconds waiting on a search online? Forget it! Frustration is at its peak!

If increasing Magento page speed is a concern to you and your business, than optimizing your Magento store with Extendware Full Page Cache can help lower your customer wait time and speed up your store loading times significantly.

This video helps explain Full Page Cache and how the Extendware Full Page Cache extension is different, more capable, and more powerful than the other competitor Full Page Cache extensions available.

Just click below to play.

Benefits of Using Extendware Full Page Cache for Magento Site Optimization

Very Limited Database Usage – Extendware’s FPC uses a super fast primary cache so that it does not have to touch the database for over 90% of all actions.

Why does that matter? Because every time your application or store makes a call to the database, it slows down your page processing because your system has to wait for the database to respond. One call won’t make much of a difference, but a few hundred database calls every transaction can really slow down your page response time.

Our Full Page Cache gets around this by handling 90% of your requests in memory, not by calling your database, so it is much faster than how Magento’s default caching settings work. This translates into a speed similar to a Varnish caching solution, yet with a better cache hit rate, form key support, and our Full Page Cache is much easier to configure.

High Page Cache Hit Rate – Your store will not be fast – even with a good page caching extension – if no one actually uses the cache. That is why a high cache hit rate (the percent of requests that load directly from page cache instead of the database) is important. Our cache has an excellent hit rate that far surpasses the current and previous Varnish caching solutions.
Ability to Flush Multiple Modified Pages – Our extension gives you the ability to flush the entire page cache, flush groups of pages (all product pages, all cms pages), or flush only specific pages of an affected product. Having multiple flushing choices ensures that you don’t flush what you don’t need to, which increases your cache hit rate.
Easy to Configure – Most stores only need to install it and enable it and it will auto-configure! It couldn’t be easier. Only more advanced use-cases or extreme customization require more involved configuration.
Supports Product Catalog Sorting – Extendware Full Page Cache has full support for catalog sorting. Other page caches do not support changing the sort order in the catalog the way Magento does by default. As a result, it is possible for the default category sort order to be cached incorrectly when you are using other full page cache solutions. Our solution won’t incorrectly cache the default category sort order.
• Highly Configurable – The out-of-the-box solution page cache is extremely easy to configure and is very simple to just plug and play. However, that does not mean it cannot be configured to operate in different ways for many different environments. The FPC extension includes lots of configuration options so it can fit every use case and grow as your store grows!

As you can see, Extendware’s Full Page Cache increases the page load speed for your Magento website, reduces the load on the server and database and improves the ranking in search engines.

Take action and save your customers (and your wallet) valuable time. You can make your Magento website the fastest on the market and drastically improve your conversion rate and overall sales!


Full-Page-CacheFull Page Cache reduces your Magento store’s First Byte Time, Increases your web server request rate, reduces database load, and makes your store much more responsive. Extendware’s Caching solution is the best Magento Caching Performance Extension you can buy to speed up your store and easily pays for itself by saving you money rather than buying expensive hardware solutions to increase your Magento store optimization rates.

What Problems Does the Magento Extended Admin Product Grid Solve?

Editable-Product-Grid-(for-web)The Magento admin product grid is probably one of the most viewed screens in the Magento admin area. Unfortunately, it is not very flexible in meeting the needs of store owners, to add new columns, sort columns, and directly edit within the grid.
