  2. Magento 2 Advanced Customer Group Price Rules (Tier Price Rules)

    One of the Magento 2 features is Customer Group Price (Tired Price). It allows you to set different prices of products in accordance with their quantity as well depending on customer group. E.g. define lower prices for wholesale customers who purchase 10 and more quantities of the same product.

    Magento 2 Customer Group Price

    In order to set Customer Group Price, you have to configure them on every product separately. To do this you need to:

    1. Login into Magento 2 admin panel

    2. Navigate to Catalog > Products

    3. Select a product you want to define prices for

    4. Under the "price" input click on Advanced Pricing link

    5. Manually specify a price for each group and qty

    It is not very convenient, especially in case you need to change prices on a huge amount of products.

  3. Why Is It Better to use Magento 2 Blog Extension Than Integration With WordPress, Joomla, Drupal

    In Magento 1 we commonly saw that merchants have used Magento for an online store and some other CMS, e.g. WordPress, Joomla or Drupal for blogging, then installing different tools to make the integration between these systems.

    For Magento 2 we have developed Blog extension to allow you to have a store and a blog in one place. We want to show the advantages of using Magefan Blog Module over Integration modules or systems:

    1. Security

    Magento is one of the safest frameworks. Safety is the top priority for any successful business. And it's known that  WordPress and other blogging CMS are not famous for their security, especially when being installed with additional modules. That's why using Magento extension which expands Magento itself is better. Magefan Blog extension has passed over all verifications on Magento Marketplace, including security and it is safe to use.

  9. Better way to allow customer to remove their account

    According to the GDPR, every customer from the European Union (EU) has the right to remove his or her account from the store. There are a lot of different Magento 2 extensions which allow to do that and delete it instantly. However, it is not the best way to do so as there always is a chance to make customers change their decision or for them to remove their account by accident. So we are going to show you how it is done in Magento GDPR extension by Plumrocket.
