Posted on February 5, 2019 by WPQuasar Online tagged with , under Insights

Ever visited a site a site only to leave thinking the content was not relevant to you? The concept of “personalization” aims to bridge the content relevance to visitor type gap. And the good news is WordPress supports personalization as much as the big boys of content management.

We won’t go into native personalization features in this blog, instead here are five personalization plugins which help add a personal touch to your WordPress site.

1. Personalization by Flowcraft

Personalization by Flowcraft allows you to use a shortcode to specify a “condition” you create to show personalized content, from images and posts to custom widgets. Its authors are confident you can personalize “practically everything on the website”.

A premium version is available which extends the free plugin’s feature set.

2. If>So Dynamic Content

As its name suggests, If>So Dynamic Content will dynamically generate content in response to different visitor profiles and interaction with the site.

The plugin features a visual editor so no coding is required.

3. PureClarity

Personalization can be applied to any type of content, including e-commerce content. PureClarity has developed a WordPress plugin for its AI-driven personalisation service. If a known visitor is presented with a relevant offer, the person is more likely to transact. Well at least that’s the theory.

The plugin integrates with WooCommerce online store.

4. Logic Hop

Logic Hop is another cloud service which collects information about site visitors which can be used for content personalization.

The Logic Hop WordPress plugin personalizes content using shortcodes and widgets, and its core functionality can be extended add-ons for third-party services.

Meet Ninja Shop, the new (karate) kid on the open source e-commerce block

Posted on August 21, 2018 by WPQuasar Online tagged with , , under News

Without mentioning the market leader, we’d like to introduce you to Ninja Shop, a fresh approach to selling online with WordPress.

Open source has a long history of e-commerce applications since the dawn of the dot com boom. In recent years, the popularity of WordPress has made it an attractive platform for e-commerce plugin developers. And now this includes Ninja Shop.

Ninja has an impressive arsenal

Ninja Shop takes a soup to nuts (or should we say star to nunchaku?) approach to e-commerce features by bundling everything into one subscription.

Without getting too deep into the specific features, with Ninja Shop you get the ability to:

  • Sell physical and digital products
  • Host unlimited products and transactions
  • Accept online and offline payments
  • Offer buy now and multi-cart purchases
  • Control shipping and sales tax
  • Create membership sites
  • Offer product variants
  • Sell subscriptions
  • Run flash sales and coupon promotions

As part of the regular plugin, which leads us to our next point…

The Ninja has focus (and one subscription fee)

All the “features” of of Ninja Shop are included as a set of plugins which are included in the standard subscription.

The subscription, dubbed “Ninja Shop Connect”, includes all the add-ons which can be activated or deactivated in the Ninja Shop plugin dashboard.

Starting at 9USD per month, a Ninja Shop Connect subscription gives you access to all the features and add-ons with automatic and regular updates.

We say “starting” because the subscription fee does increase to $9+(0.9% of monthly revenue) when you start selling, but only after you reach $500 a month in revenue.

And, if you’re worried about skyrocketing expenses, don’t because the monthly fee is capped at $99 a month. Complete mindfulness!

Get started by stealth

Don’t let all that talk about subscriptions distract you from sneakily installing Ninja Shop for free from your WordPress plugin dashboard.

Ninja Shop is like any other open source plugin, but if you’re ruthless in your focus you will want to snatch a subscription for only $9 a month with Zen-like calm.

The subscription gives you all the features and access to support when you need it.

This new, unorthodox and agile approach to WordPress e-commerce by Ninja Shop might just be a real kick.
