In any business, whether it is online or offline the way you present the products matters a lot. If your way of presentation is attractive and simple then it will attract more customers to your store.

On purchasing the product online, the customer faces many queries in mind. If these queries are not resolved, the customer can even drop the plan of the purchase. But with the help of Product Question Answer, the customer can easily raise their query to the store owner. If resolved correctly, sales will increase to a much high level.

Majority e-commerce returns occur due to a simple reason that the product purchased does not offer a satisfactory fit. What if the returns rate of the product purchased require sizing gets reduce?

With the Size Charts, the store owner can easily offer size charts for the products requiring sizes which will benefit the customers. This will ultimately reduce the count of returns leading to increasing the customer satisfaction base.

 
Starting up a business online is very much beneficial but uploading products on the store can often turn into a nightmare if your product counts are above two digit count.

In such scenarios having an add on which allows the owner to upload products in bulk like Product Bulk Upload  can be really useful.

 
Marketing any business primarily about communication whether it is pre-sale or post-sale. The conversation between the store owner and the potential buyers can be often useful to the customers and the store owners too.

Because the customer can use these tools to interact with the store owner and share their query. The store owner can also get to know about the new requirement and products that are popular among buyers.

As the default Opencart does not offer any sort of conversation. So some of the following chat systems that help customer interact with the website owners are :

 
If you are running any website that requires some additional information from the customers that are currently unavailable in the default Opencart registration.

Then it can be added through Custom Registration Fields which will help the store owner know about the customer in a detailed fashion.

 
We all think of expanding our business and if you are running a successful online business. But often take a step back just because of the hassle involved in managing the stock and the sales of the outlets.

Some of the points that may increase the sales of the products are:

Then it will increase the customer base and will let more user join your website without having the need to manage the login ID and Password for the site separately.

 
If you want to have a profitable site, the search is one of the key element. Most Potentials buyers want to have a smooth and convenient shopping experience so that the customer can easily look for what they actually want.

If you are a big business, then you need to have the purchase order (PO) to make a smooth supply chain management. With the help of Purchase Order, you can easily generate a purchase order.

Apart from the Purchase Order, the store owner can also add multiple functionalities to their websites as mentioned in the following.

  • The default Opencart does not allow the customer to quote for the products. But with the Quote System, you can allow the customer to quote for the products based product quantity.
  • In many e-commerce industries, we need to provide documents like – design, logo, prescription, docs, invoices, licenses, etc. to purchase the products. Using the Order Attachment module, you can integrate this feature for your customers.
