Nowadays, Magento is considered as a platform that can be used to create high quality eCommerce. It is versatile and can be adapted to different projects.

In the following post, we will provide you with 10 Magento Extensions that we think are extremely useful.

1. OneStepCheckout

OneStepCheckout is a plugin that simplifies the checkout process of your Magento store. It is a technical change that can be made with the aim of improving shopping cart abandonment.
Originally, results showed that there were an overwhelming number of steps to checkout and pay for items which meant that many customers were abandoning their cart. Therefore, the aim of OneStepCheckout, is to reduce the number of steps, which leads to more visitors completing their orders. This has an immediate impact on your bottom line.

2. Layered Navigation

This extension makes it much easier to find specific products based on filters such as category, price range, or any other attribute. You can usually find layered navigation in the left column of search results or sometimes on the home page. The standard navigation includes a “Shop By” list of categories and price range. You can also change the display of layered navigation e.g. by changing the price range.

3. Stripe

The stripe module allows you to accept payments directly on your store for web and mobile. With Stripe, customers can stay on your store during checkout instead of being redirected to an externally hosted checkout page. With Stripe, you can accept all major debit and credit cards from customers, as well as Apple Pay, Android Pay and other local payment methods.

4. Fooman Speedster

The amount of time a page takes to load is a big factor in how long customers spend browsing your store. Results show that faster times have been proven to improve customer satisfaction and increase sales. Fooman Speedster speeds up the store and therefore keeps customers browsing the store for longer.

5. Easy Flags

This free extension is a must-have solution when you are creating an eCommerce store for multi-language communities. This module provides you with the flag store switcher. If your website supports many languages, you have to connect the flag icons with the targeted link on the site.
