The Magento store owners already have all the basic functionalities that are required to run your ecommerce store. But to make your customers' shopping experience more pleasant with you, you can add a few extensions to your store. There are two ways to achieve that. One is Magento 2 extension development and the other one is buying ready-to-use plugins. If a ready-to-use plugin has features that you require then you will save the development time. Here, we have listed out four plugins that you must have on your ecommerce store to make it better.

  • Magento 2 Language Translator

The Magento 2 Language translator extension with the help of Google Translation API, easily translates the content. You can translate meta details, CMS page, staatic details, on your store and make it easy to understand for your customers. This plugin also facilitates mass translation. If you have multiple stores you can translate them as well. If any external files are required, you can easily add as well.

  • Magento 2 Zip Code Validator

For eCommerce stores, this plugin can add functionality that will ease the shopping experience of your customers. The customers can check the availability of the product using the zip code of that area. So while browsing through the products, customers can see whether the product is available in a particular region or not. You can add a zipcode validator on the home page, on the product pages, during checkout, etc. To add more one functionality to your store you can add a delivery date and time scheduler, which brings us to the next plugin.

  • Magento 2 Delivery Date and Time Scheduler

This feature can help you increase customer experience. The delivery date scheduler allows the customers to choose the delivery date and time. This way the customers will have clarity on when their order will reach them. You can also give them flexibility of choosing time slots. So the customers can choose the date and time that they want and are available to receive the order. This will reduce the attempts to deliver the product and returns in case the product is undelivered. This plugin can work wonders for bakery businesses who can offer 12 am delivery for birthdays and anniversary celebrations. Having a delivery date and time scheduler can allow them to add the product and receive it at a specific time. The number of orders will also increase when you have such an extension added to your store. Customers like to have clarity while ordering products and this extension gives that.
