More and more people are shopping online, and to fulfil that demand, more and more businesses are offering billions of products at millions of webshops across the
Many webshop administrators tend to get baffled with their product data as their business grows and hence product catalog grows as well. It is not an easy task to manage and edit hundreds and thousands of products in a webshop.
Fortunately, Magento realised this obstacle long ago and hence there has always been an Export and Import tool inbuilt into all Magento versions. Magento 2.X is no different. It has its own Export and Import mechanism which can be used for many
Hungersoft has been working extensively with Magento 2 since the time it was released. We have developed and launched many M2 based webshops and even
developed some amazing extensions for Magento 2 that you can find here. We like the fact that Magento 2 is growing in market-share with each passing day and is poised to become a leading E-commerce platform in near future. We are also happy to see
that it is getting more secure and feature-rich. It is still not perfect yet but it indeed is getting better and smoother. Magento team has also added alot of new security features that were lacking in Magento 1. These features are not limited to
architecture and code base but also extend to front-end and back-office level....
It has been almost 2 months since the EUGDPR compliance deadline (25th May 2018) passed by. Is your business and websites compliant yet?
We certainly made our websites
and projects compliant and also shared a related blog post with the community. You can read it here.
However, alot of businesses are still working on this or are not taking it seriously enough. Magento community also took its own sweet
time to come up with solutions and extensions that can help in making Magento webshops compliant with the latest privacy laws....
In a globalised world, it is important that customers are able to order and purchase products from businesses located across the world. Easiest
way of doing that is by using official or authorised webshops. Businesses understand that now and hence alot of webshops are multi-currency these days. Ie. visitors are able to select their own currency in global webshops and see product prices and
other amounts in their own local currency. We too have a lot of clients whose webshops have multiple currencies enabled for their customers....
In an earlier post, we listed down all recently launched security patches for Magento CE 1.X . You can read that post here.
Magento has released yet
another security patch (SUPEE-10752) on 27th June, 2018! It contains multiple security enhancements to close authenticated Admin user remote code execution (RCE), cross-site request forgery (CSRF) and some other issues and holes. You can read more
about it here....
This patch is applicable to all webshops developed on Magento CE versions lower than 126.96.36.199. It is advised that you get this patch implemented on your Magento CE 1.X webshops as soon as possible....
Your e-commerce store is not very different from physical retail stores. It might not have the walls and windows but it works on same basic
principles as any physical merchant establishment.
As in retail outlets, the biggest challenge a webshop owner faces is to increase foot-fall and hence bring in visitors to the webshop. This is generally done by advertisement and marketing in
real world and by SEO, SEM and Adwords in digital world. Once you have visitors, you have to turn them into customers using high quality products, great prices, excellent services and various promotional schemes. However, you cannot afford to stop
your efforts at that stage. Once you have successfully converted a visitor into a customer, you have to try and entice them to buy more products from you. Your aim should be to provide all the products and related accessories that the customer might
We recently set-up a nice server environment for one of our newer clients. Like all our other servers, we made it accessible only via authorised key-pairs. Yes, there are no passwords
to access that server. It can only be accessed by authorised keys. We had to explain our client why it is a more secure method and how it also makes it easy to control who accesses their server. During the process we realised that this method is
still not widely used, so we thought we would write a quick post about it this week....
Magento community is steadily moving towards full adoption of Magento 2.x. More and more merchants are migrating to Magento 2.x and hence more developers and agencies are
developing Magento 2.x projects enthusiastically. It is also getting stable as a platform with each passing day. However, like any new system, it still has many open issues and technical flaws that need to be sorted out soon.
This also means
that Magento 1.x is still alive and being used widely. Hungersoft recommends that no new projects should be developed using Magento 1.x as base but the 1.x webshops that are already live can continue to run as long as the merchant wishes to. For that
to happen, it is very important that you keep your Magento CE 1.x webshop updated with all security patches released by Magento. This will not only keep your webshop secure and safe but will also help you exending its life and hence saving you alot
of money for the time being. If you have not been keeping your Magento CE 1.x webshop updated with latest security patches then you should get it done on urgent basis. It is even more important with EUGDPR in place now. Keeping your customer data
secure is fully your responsibility and these security patches will help you with that....
