Why Magento ecommerce …

We use the powerful Magento ecommerce solution for the majority of our customers' stores.

Since its release in 2008, Magento's open-source software has grown exponentially, now powering upwards of 200,000 stores globally. The range of features, functionality and stability simply eclipses every other ecommerce platform available.

  • Scalable – Its an ideal choice for businesses which want to scale for the future in terms of numbers of products, transactions, customers, languages, currencies and pages without changing horses later on.
  • Liberating – Magento enables businesses to run their own shop fronts through a sophisticated administration area. Non technical staff can easily maintain all facets of an online store including managing products, customer details and orders.
  • Customer services – It provides a comprehensive customer experience including a feature-rich secure customer account area, customised emails for orders, invoicing and shipping, and purchase histories.
  • Highly customisable – As open-source software, Magento can be customised to meet your business's most demanding needs. Its modular architecture means that an off-the-shelf extension may already be available to meet your requirement.
  • Third-party integration – Magento offers integration with most payment gateways and main shipping agents such as Royal Mail. It can be integrated with email marketing solutions as well as a host of other software including ERP applications.
  • Analysis & reporting – Magento provides users with in-depth reporting of store activities such as sales, cart abandonment and taxation and can be customised to produce non-standard reports as required.
  • Search engine optimisation – Magento was built from the ground up to fully support search engine optimisation (SEO) and can be integrated with Google Analytics to measure SEO performance.
  • Free – The community edition of Magento is open source software, freely available without contracts or licensing fees.
In short, Magento is a fully mature ecommerce platform, and our expertise will help you realise its benefits for your store.

Magento – Change the Product Quantity Added to Cart - part 3: Create Observer

Change the Product Quantity Added to Cart - part 2: Model Rewrite

Now we want to take a look at rewriting some of Magento’s core code in a module of our own. Our aim is to set the quantity of a related product (a product warranty) added to the cart to the same quantity as the main product that we select. There are bigger lessons here too, and we want to learn those along the way. Here goes…
