You might have the greatest products at the most affordable prices, but if your landing page on your e-commerce website is lackluster and ineffective, customers might not be compelled to take the crucial step and place an order. An attractive and eye-catching landing page will do more than merely look great, it can help inspire potential customers to complete the conversion. The following tips can help e-commerce business owners make sure their landing page is as powerful as possible:
While you might be tempted to put all of your business-related cards on the proverbial table and include gobs of information on the landing page, it’s much better to make it as clean and simple as possible. Refrain from adding in pop-ups, flashing graphics, and too many colors or fonts—that will just make your landing page look overwhelming and too busy.
Almost a third of all web activity is now through mobile devices, according to Marketingland. In addition, having a website that looks great on a mobile device can even double the chances of conversion. In order to capitalize on this growing trend, it’s vital that your landing page be easily seen and navigated on tablets and smartphones. For example, it must load quickly, be easy to read, and have plenty of places to click. Although any type of small business would do well to have a landing page that is mobile-friendly, companies that sell electronic accessories and books should be especially sure that this is the case, as chances are good your customers will then use your products on their mobile devices.
Your landing page only has about eight seconds to capture a potential customer’s attention, notes Scale My Business. If the site doesn’t manage to do that, chances are good he or she will move onto the next web page. In order to make those eight seconds count and lead to a conversion, the landing page must clearly show people what your offer and how you will solve their problems. It should also help to explain what sets you apart from the competition in a very clear and concise way. Keep in mind that a lot of people will land on your site while they are browsing the Internet, and they probably already passed on several similar businesses.
Let your landing page say and show why you are worth sticking around. For example, the landing page is not a place to talk about yourself—make it all about your products and services and how you will help people. Companies that have a lot of inherent competition are especially advised to use this approach. For example, if you are one of a dozen tire shops in your area, your landing page should include compelling wording that will lead to a conversion. This could be a special offer, 24/7 road service, or another attractive feature of your business.
Another effective technique for a compelling landing page is to include some sort of call to action, or CTA, that will inspire visitors to the site to do something on the page. This can be a large button to click that will take them to a page to leave their contact info, a link that takes them to a short video about the company, or a clickable phrase like “learn more.” For example, incorporate a billing system and make it easy for your customers to sign up for your services, or make a purchase with a recurring bill pay that can easily be accessed from a landing page.

If you experience blank page issues when generating a PDF invoice with VirtueMart 2, a possible cause could be the presence of the AddThis content plugin.
As a quick test, disable the content plugin and see if the invoice generation works again.
If you can confirm that is the issue, you may be interested in the following fix.
The AddThis content plugin add social sharing buttons, so basically - like many content plugins - add HTML to the document.
To add script, CSS and other custom tags, it correctly uses the JDocument object. E.g.
$doc = JFactory::getDocument();
Problem is, it does not check anywhere if the current document is in PDF format (i.e. JDocumentPDF) in which case most methods are not available and produce a fatal error.
A quick fix is to check the document type. E.g.
$doc = JFactory::getDocument();
if (get_class($doc) == 'JDocumentPDF') return true;
In version 2.0.1 of the plugin I had to add the check twice, add the beginning of createAddThis and appendAddThisScript methods.
We reported the issue to the developers and hopefully the fix will be included in future versions of this excellent content plugin.

When we started planning Quick2Cart 2.2, we admittedly bit of more than what we could chew so to say from a timeline perspective. This release has lots and lots of features and not many of them small. This led to lot of delays on our end. We are extremely sorry about this but we cannot release something we believe is not complete and hence the delay. However, I hope you will all agree that it was all worth the wait !
Quick2cart v2.2 takes Joomla Ecommerce to new highs with major improvements in User experience and some really awesome features. Multi Vendor Shipping and taxation, CCK Multivendor support, tight EasySocial Integration are just the tip of the feature iceberg we have in this release ! Read on for the full Scoop !!
Shipping and taxation was a major point of this release. It was important that it be done in a way that can be flexible and scalable to a variety of situations. The basis of shipping and taxation is based on Geographical Zones.
Zones are used to club together regions and/or countries that have something in common from a shipping or taxation perspective. For instance you could make a zone called the ‘Indian Subcontinent’ with all the countries included since your shipping provider charges you the same fees for all those countries. Further Zones are used extensively when you define Shipping and Tax rates. Each store needs to have its own zones for full flexibility.
By setting up zones you can set tax rates and in some cases multiple taxes are applied to a single product for eg: VAT (Value added tax), LBT (Local Body Tax), Service Tax etc. In Tax Profiles, you are able to relate the tax rate to the billing or shipping address. For instance to send products to Pune, you will attract both LBT and VAT. LBT being a function of the shipping address and VAT of the billing address.
We present a full fledge shipping configuration system in Quick2Cart 2.2 with which you can create highly configurable shipping rules. Though we are not releasing any 3rd Party shipping provider plugins like FedX in this release, the infrastructure needed to build these is now in place and we welcome 3rd Party developers to come and help us build these !
The inbuilt Shipping configuration system lets you define methods based on Weight, Quantity as well as flat rate. You can setup methods like Same day Shipping, 15 day shipping etc. You can set up rates based on the Zones available. Overall its extremely flexible.
Quick2Cart has been a popular choice for multivendor Joomla setups however till now we did not offer the ability to create Multi Vendor with Content construction kits. Quick2Cart 2.2 brings this much awaited feature. We have tested this with native Joomla, Zoo, K2 and Flexicontent. However the architecture is such that 3PD implementations like Sebold and JReviews should also work fine. Note that in CCK multi vendor implementations, you need to use native CCK based frontend submissions instead of the native Product form.
The frontend my products view as well as the backend products view now shows products from native as well as CCKs with the detail and edit links redirected to the respective views in the CCK or native system.
Quick2Cart is the 3rd product now to benefit from the UI/UX improvements we made with our jTicketing release earlier this year. The checkout process is completely Ajaxed and has a nice User interface.
In some cases you might want to use Quick2Cart in such a way that you can only buy from one store at a time. You can now do this with the Force single store checkout option in Quick2Cart. The admin can set this globally in the backend configuration.
We have introduced a Country manager in the backend to let the admin choose which all countries they want to offer in the Billing & Shipping forms. The manager supports adding a language constant if you want to translate the country select lists.
This version is adds a lots of SEO improvements letting you manage product meta data for native products. Microdata and OG Tags support lets you add more context to your products. If you use CCKs for managing products there are several CCK plugins that let you do this already for them.
You gave us this feedback for Invitex that our EasySocial apps should be more native. We have started in that direction with Quick2Cart with a nice ajax cart app for EasySocial profiles. We are looking for lots of feedback here ! The app shows the users products on his profile page in the Native EasySocial way. A profile app already exists for JomSocial.
Now incentivise selling and shopping on your site with our points integration.. What's more let them reuse the points using the points payment gateways for EasySocial/JomSocial.
Seamless shopping experience to the user with improved pin layouts. Plus viewing the it in any screen size whether it’s a smartphone or a table be it anything, Quick2cart will adjust itself according to the screen size as both frontend and backend are responsive now.
The site admin can get a birds eye view of the site with backend dashboard as it covers all time sales, total products sold, total orders and a detailed analysis provided with a supporting bar graph and pie chart. The Store owner will also be able to see their own dashboard which has an improved user interface and better analytics.
Creation of stores at backend has been introduced in this version. Admin can create and edit stores plus will have a listview to see all the available store on the website at a glance.
Admin has the control! Admin approval is needed to publish a new store and a new product.
Email notification can be sent if a store is edited or a product is edited and even on a store creation.
All this can be turned on and off from this tab.
