  • Pricing Theory In The Age of Businesses-As-Consumers

    As a small team of developers we're in a similar position to some of our smaller clients - not enough time to answer every email, or to complete projects, as quickly as we'd like. At the same time we don't have enough revenue to hire more people to the team, and find ourselves in a Catch22 situation. Here's the interesting thing - if we did hire more team members, that would directly help the majority of our clients each make...

  • Learn How to Make Your Business Run More Efficiently

    Learn How to Make Your Business Run More Efficiently

    During high school, a handful of my friends used to get together after class to watch movies in our school’s ever-warm auditorium. Always, there was ice cream. In the fall, it was warm enough for someone to round up our cash, amble down to the grocer, and pick some buckets of Homer’s Strawberry Magic, (which continues to be a Chicago classic), but in the winter, nobody wanted to make the hike. So we Googled around until finding a few shops that...

  • Magento Best-practice for a 100-200 Orders/day Op.

    I was emailed this question about Magento best-practice by one of our pickPack/shipEasy users the other day. My reply went on a bit so I thought I'd post it up in case it helps anyone else. First, I do enjoy optimising this kind of thing, it's where Moogento started from - optimising a physical products business. 100-200 orders a day is a size where a person off sick is a serious disruption, and also, that's a serious variation in order rate (100%)...

  • Quick Magento Speed Win - Remove Print.css

    Quick Magento Speed Win - Remove Print.css

    Quick win of the day - removing an item from your pages that is likely never used. View the source of your page and check if you have print.css loading in there. Likely you do, and likely nobody uses it! Even if you're using something to combine css files into one, it'll be leaving this one separate. Each item loaded takes up a slot of the number of files the browser can download in parallel (I think this is 6 in Firefox). And...

  • Coupons Re-imagined: Mom Was Right (Again)

    Coupons Re-imagined: Mom Was Right (Again)

    I head back to my Mom's purple, pink, and terracotta apartment once a year. We live on opposite sides of the Pacific pond, and although I spend most of the year in the South East Asian tropics, it’s always nice to hunker down for a few weeks in Chicago’s fierce winter cold. She’s a painter, and a sculptor, and a professor, and her apartment is decorated with a combination of my silly childhood finger-paintings, and the highly contemporary works that...

  • Screen Sizes and CTAs for Mobile eCommerce

    I recently made a new design for Moogento, and was telling a buddy about it. "Sweet, let me have a look" he said, and loaded it up on his phone. Cue excuses and apologies 'It looks great on my laptop!'... Sound familiar? These days we can't just leave mobile optimizing til later, as this is often the first contact. There's the device emulator that comes with X-Tools from Apple, but that app takes ages to load for me and is not so...

  • Quality in the Contemporary Package

    Quality in the Contemporary Package

    Remembering the Greeks from My Bangkok Apartment: Last year, as I packed the contents of my quaint Bangkok apartment into giant Tupperware boxes, (preparing to move a whopping two streets further from the city center) I found myself thinking back to a beautiful college lecture about the Ancient Greek notion of Quality. I remembered looking out of those tall classroom windows and onto the choppy waters of Florida’s Gulf. I remembered watching Osprey hunt for Zebra Fish just off shore, and...

  • New Magento Security Notice - You Might Already Be Infected

    New Magento Security Notice - You Might Already Be Infected

    TLDR - you might have malware in your site. Run your site at magereport.com for a quick check. Team Magento just released a new security notice. This one is way easier than the last supee patch to check, and in fact is likely directly related to slow-installs of previously-released patches. Technically it looks like a javascript malware hack where credit card details are sent back to a remote dodgy server. How could this have happened? If you were slow to install patches, have...

  • Magento Security Patch Supee 6788 Released

    Magento Security Patch Supee 6788 Released

    Magento has just released a high-priority Security patch, called Supee 6788. It's recommended to update your Magento installation immediately with this Patch. A lot of extensions need a change to work with this patch, you can see a list here. The best solution is going to be to install the latest version of all extensions, testing each one before moving to the next. If you don't want to do that, there are often guides explaining how to manually adapt each extension to deal with...

  • Buyer-Retention in Your Hood

    Buyer-Retention in Your Hood

    Tourist season is back, and people are swarming. Congratulations, your new window display is pulling them in by the dozen; it looks like putting that sexy mannequin in the easy-to-see spot was a great idea, and the “Have a Coffee On Us” sign is bringing in almost more traffic than you know what to do with. You’ve got people coming into your shop – now what? Getting them in is only half the job. It’s time to give them reasons to...
