Llamas and the Mobile eCommerce Optimization Initiative

The Mobile eCommerce Optimization Initiative has kicked off and Classy Llama is participating! The Magento Community has come together to create and test multiple conversion optimization experiments. The findings of this initiative are both well-timed and helpful for merchants preparing for the holiday season.

So far, this Magento Community initiative has discovered some interesting patterns:

  • Adding a Security Icon to the Checkout Button created 17.37% lift in Revenue Per Visit (RPV)
  • Auto-selecting the credit card type created a 21.53% lift in RPV
  • Adding the PayPal Express Checkout shortcut created an 8.72% lift in RPV in the mini-cart…

If we’ve learned anything from Black Friday and Cyber Monday’s past, it’s that retailers need to be proactive to counter the holiday shopping dominance of eCommerce giants like Amazon.

I just updated my example Magento 2 travis build file to work with the newer versions of M2 coming out of GitHub. This file does the heavy lifting of cloning an M2 Magento repo, running the installer, and adding the composer module you want to test to the project. Travis remains one of those how is this free wonders for anyone doing software development today.

This entry is part 5 of 5 in the series Just Enough C for PHP. Earlier posts include Just Enough C for PHP, Just Enough C for PHP: Running C Programs, Just Enough C for PHP: Variables and Types, and Just Enough C for PHP: C Macros. This is the most recent post in the series. So far in this series we’ve written super simple programs, and we’ve compiled those programs directly using cc, gcc, or clang (some of which are just legacy aliases that point at the same system compiler) $ cc hello-world.c $ gcc hello-world.c $ clang hello-world.c […]

A new release for the Magento 1 version is available. The new release provides the installer for the latest Magento versions.

We also added PHP 7.2 syntax check to the travis build pipeline to be prepared for the next Magento 1 release which will be read for PHP 7.2 out of the box.

Please note that we removed “mcrypt”  from list of required PHP modules. This is also needed to be prepared for PHP 7.2. If you are only using older PHP versions you can re-add the check by creating a .n98-magerun.yaml in your home directory with this content:

N98\Magento\Command\Installer\InstallCommand: installation: pre-check: php: extensions: - mcrypt

Changes
  • New: Magento 1.9.3.10 (by Bono de Visser, #997)
  • New: Magento 1.9.3.9 (by Joel Lupfer, #999)
  • New: dry-run flag for self-update command (port of M2 project)
  • Add openmage-lts to installable versions (by Daniel Fahlke, #1005)

If you are reading this, the holidays are here. Like last year, expect every day in November to generate $1 billion in online sales. Email is a big piece of this billion-dollar pie. Last year, email drove 20% of website traffic during the seasons and accounted for nearly 25% of sales on Cyber Monday. While retailers prepare for the long holiday season, they often neglect some of the nuances that go into creating engaging and conversion-focused emails. With so much on the line, don’t let this happen to you. Here are four ways to create more engaging and effective holiday emails
