May 15, 2018 Update: GeoIP2 API integration is now available in UB One Step Checkout. It helps detect customer address automatically based on the IP address.

Today is an exciting day for me because I get to announce the release of a brand new Magento 2 one step checkout extension at Ubertheme -- UB One Step Checkout (beta), that we have been working on for quite some time.

The Magento 1 & 2 are great for a lot of things, but building an effective one step checkout page is not one of those things. It can be downright frustrating when working with six-step accordion checkout process in Magento 1.x. Getting maximum value from the reduced two-step flow in Magento 2 can be challenging as well.

Hence, we committed to building our new UB One Step Checkout. You will get a complete checkout solution that makes it easier than ever to build a one page checkout in Magento 2. The ultimate goal is to help you maximize successful checkout transactions.

migrate customer passwords

Customer data is one of the most important elements -- especially when migrating from Magento 1 to Magento 2. What if the transfer doesn’t go smoothly? In eCommerce one of the worst scenarios is that the migrated customers may be unable to log in to the new Magento 2 instance.

Getting started with the customer data migration can be intimidating, but with a right migration tool, the process isn’t as hard as it seems. Fortunately, our UB Data Migration tool makes this very simple.

If you’re considering our migration tool, we have done the hard work for you and figured out how to automatically migrate customer logins and passwords to Magento 2 with ease.

Multi-page vs. Single-page checkout

Nothing turns off a potential customer more than an overly complicated Magento checkout process.

Here’s what customer research shows: According to the Baymard Institute, roughly 70% of your customers do abandon their carts just before checkout. Now there could be various factors leading to that. It could be hidden shipping costs or the final price of your product, but here’s the catch: Recent research reveals that it’s really the tedious Magento checkout procedures that often discourage your customers from completing their purchase.

So the big question is, what can you do? Optimizing your Magento checkout is one thing you need to look at, but whether to use a single-page or a multi-page checkout is another important aspect you need to consider. Continue reading

Magento 2.2.2 Plus Xmas Bundle

Two days ago, Magento announced the latest release ver 2.2.2 with a few incredible new features.

Instant Purchase -- an Amazon-like one-click ordering -- is one of them. I’m going to share in more details about this feature below. If you’re looking for an effective way to eliminate cart abandonment, Instant Purchase is definitely a new enhancement you’re going to love.

There’s a good chance that you start planning for 2018, so we have been working hard on updates to make all our premium Magento 2 extensions fully compatible with Magento 2.2.2. Make sure you have all Magento 2 extensions you need (at a huge discount) to exceed your 2018 goals.

Instant Purchase: Amazon-like checkout experience

1-click checkout was a patent solution of Amazon way back in 1999. You might wonder why it was such a game changer? The answer is straightforward, it’s the simplest, fastest way to place an order. Most importantly, it allows customers to complete purchase with a single click using payment credentials and shipping information previously stored with Amazon. It means that when you click Buy now with 1-Click on any product page, it lets you skip the shopping cart and automatically creates an order for that product.

You see, the patent expired on Sept 12, 2017. This is an exciting news for ecommerce merchants everywhere, as it enables all merchants to use similar 1-click checkout technology without having to license it from Amazon.
