Every failure comes with a list of excuses while success depends on making all the right decisions. At least that’s the popular belief. Successful projects don’t always have a smooth start or, for that matter, a smooth middle part either. While a project can be overturned and salvaged at any point, time is of essence in such cases.

Add qty increment buttons to product page

add_qty_increment_buttons-featured

As you probably know, Magento is using a plain text field to handle quantity on product page. This is the bulletproof solution – it is simple and covers all needs.

fedex-checkout-featured

As a customer, there are two things prioritizing choices of shipping methods. First one, of course, is shipping price and other is delivery date. Since Magento is already showing us shipping prices on the checkout we don’t need to worry about that.
