Nexcess.net – Magento Hosting
After trying several Magento hosting providers we were delighted to find Nexcess.net and we are more than happy to recommend NEXCESS.NET to all of our Magento clients. We have found their SIP-100 account very good value, reliable and fast.
WebShopApps.com – Magento Shipping Extensions
We use WebShopApps shipping extensions on most of our Magento projects. Their extensions enable us to define our own, sometimes complex shipping rates. Even specifying shipping down to the product level.
We are an authorized OneStepCheckout (OSC) partner and we highly recommend the OneStepCheckout (OSC) to all our clients. The OSC is the new must have Magento extension that is taking the market by storm.
OSC is a total revamp of the standard checkout process in Magento. The core feature is that it reduces the six standard Magento checkout steps down to one. Totals and prices are dynamically updated via AJAX when shipping/payment method is selected. The user simply fills in their address and chooses delivery/payment methods on the same page, rather than having to do a separate step for each.
Improving the checkout process results in more customers completing their sales, and this has an immediate impact on your bottom line. It is the single most effective technical change you can make to reduce shopping cart abandonment.
