programming-language

This is a guest post written by Matthew Davis, a technical writer and Linux geek for Future Hosting.

The Internet is one of the fastest-changing technologies in the world, along with the languages that create it. The blogging world must anticipate these changes, to better adapt.

The Internet may well be one of the fastest-growing technologies in the history of humankind. The degree to which it’s changed even in the past five years is positively staggering, let alone how much it’s evolved since its inception back in the 1980s. The Internet of today is a vastly different beast from that of yesterday, and it stands to reason that tomorrow’s web will look equally foreign to the users of today.

How to Successfully Negotiate Lower Prices Online?

blog

This article is a guest post written by Harshal Shah, a Ceo & Founder of Xhtmljunkies.

As per the human tendency we generally want to buy things that will be at lowest price or we will bargain or negotiate to the extent that price will fall under our expectation and satisfy our need.

We are always negotiating for time, money, and convenience in our daily lives … so why not now take it to the next level and negotiate online?

Surprised?  Well, you have heard me right.

Magento E-commerce Community is always devising ways to bridge the gap between the real and the virtual world that is designed to make your shopping experience as hassle free as possible. Customers like to negotiate while purchasing any product or service and derive a unique satisfaction that they purchased a product or service at its best value. It is the best way to attract and retain customers. Suppose an online buyer likes your product but he is uncomfortable with the price then he can suggest a price. The customer can request a bulk offer as well.

Make Your Client Happy

Many online stores do not make adequate online sales as visitors find the displayed price to be too high and there is no way to inform the business owner about it. With a plethora of websites selling the same or similar products, there is little doubt that the online visitor will return to your website for the same product again. Just add an extension that will let the customers tell you how much they are willing to pay for your product. This extension will convert your random online visitors to dedicated customers as they know if they like a product but not its price, they can negotiate it. You may accordingly vary the actual selling price and see your products flying off the (virtual) shelf. You need just this extension for your store? XJ Price Negotiation is your friend.

You Selected a Product that You do not Want … Just Cancel It.

This happens to all of us at times while we are shopping online. We have our shopping cart full and we have just clicked to check out of the web store when we realize we have purchased a product that we already have or we do not need at the moment. With no solution in sight, we end up paying for something that we did not need. Not any more…

No More Disappointed Customers

Let us describe how works. An online customer realizes that he has chosen a product that he does not need. The customer can send a request to cancel the order to the Site Admin. All such requests will be visible to the Site Admin via email and the Admin panel. The Admin will then process each request and the customers will be accordingly informed via mail that the cancellation request has been processed. Try XJ Cancel Order extension and let it work wonders for your web store.
