Let us boost your website and start pumping conversions with some of the following highly regarded extensions:
Magento One Step Checkout
If you want to reduce your customers abandoning their shopping carts, one of the most effective changes you can do is implementing a OneStepCheckout. The statistics from our clients say it all, and we fully recommend the implementation of the OneStepCheckout extension to revamp your standard checkout, and prevent those pesky abandoned baskets.
OneStepCheckout reduces your standard Magento checkout into one simple page, and it has taken the market by storm. All your customer needs to do is fill out their address and payment method all on one page, making the process easier and more attractive. This is one of the best technical changes you can make to reduce the amount of abandoned baskets on your sites, and we can help you install it in a flash.
Magento Sage Pay Integration
We highly recommend SagePay’s payment gateway solution to help tackle all your Magento payment options. This means you don’t have to worry about PCI DSS server restrictions when dealing with on-page restrictions, but also you can then assure your customers that you’re using highly secure payment gateways and boosting conversions.
We have carried out multiple SagePay implementations, and are waiting to help you install and configure SagePay quickly and correctly. By using SagePay you can support 3D secure and reduce fraudulent transactions.
Magento Abandoned Cart Reminder
Don’t let your customers slip through the net! If you’ve managed to entice them to your site and get them to your basket, then don’t let them leave without a fight! If they’ve abandoned their basket we can help you create cleverly timed follow up emails to get them right back where they left off.
It’s proven that around 40% of customers return to a site after a follow up email, and around 20% will then continue to make a purchase.
Let us help you re-market, so you can turn those abandoned carts into conversions and watch your business grow.
Share Your Cart
Thought about what incentives you offer? Why not give your customers a reason to checkout by offering a discount code to customers who share their carts on their preferred social media accounts before completing their order. Not only will this boost the chances of your customers converting, but also helps grow your social media presence which in return will help expose your business.

Auto Associated Products
Displaying relevant or related products to your customers based upon their browsing history and basket contents will help you to boost sales and increase those conversions. This however can be very time consuming and become difficult to manage due to products going in and out of stock or becoming discontinued.
