Ever since that ‘aha-moment’, the quest has begun to find the best and perfect ecommerce platform.

Many were delighted when Laravel ecommerce rolled out the Bagisto platform for building ecommerce websites of all sizes and offered seamless scalability! Bagisto, the Laravel ecommerce platform which provides many out-of-box features like multivendor marketplaces, multistore inventory, AI-based product search, has been enriching the customer experience to become a one-stop solution for both customers and merchants.

However, no matter how good a platform is, there’s always room for improvement! New updates will be released with new features to upgrade the ecommerce site functionality and build strong doors of security. Bagisto is very fortunate in one aspect that it has been supported tremendously well by the entire Laravel community members. Now, efforts have been made to provide continuous improvements to remove any inefficiencies in the earlier versions and make a place for better results.

Another benefit of this option is that customers who use PayPal for their payments can leverage all the associated benefits that come with this payment service. Customers will get a PayPal pop-up to do a quick login to make the payment. Of course, to make avail of this option, you need to get client Id and secret Id from the PayPal account.

2. Email Marketing Newsletter

Email Marketing Newsletter is considered to be the most inexpensive marketing strategy that has high potential to engage with the customers and create an impact. This is because they have signed up for it and chances are they might still read it! Your high-quality content can reach quality leads with just one-click.

Do you know what’s the catch here? Customers can register later but can subscribe to the newsletter and can also unsubscribe with a single click.

3. Enhancement in Customer Group Pricing/ Discounted Price on Product Page

Group Pricing has proven to be one of the most effective strategies in enhancing ecommerce pricing strategies. The admin can curate customer requirements and expectations and accordingly set specific pricing for certain customer groups. This makes your products more appealing to the customers as you are meeting their anticipations.

You can also attract your customers in a better way by showing different pricing for your products to your store group. You can do this by showing your customers a more discounted price for different product quantities.

4. More control on Out-of-stock Product Display

If your customers decide on making a purchase but only realize that the product is out-of-stock, it gets frustrating and even results in drop-out as they lose interest in exploring other products. If this happens more than once or frequently with the same customer, the chances of finding another store are very high. You are not just losing out on a sale but also a potential loyal customer.

Bagisto has now let the user take over the control of displaying the out-of-stock products on your ecommerce storefront. The user can manage this from the configure section where they can control the settings and ask for with show or hide the out-of-stock products over your website. They can simply go with the option of showing only the available products.
