The Lowdown:
If you deal with Zazzle

NiftyGridZPro is a WordPress plugin that easily produces grids of products from the Zazzle Print On Demand store. Storekeepers (independent artists) and Zazzle affiliates can showcase products from stores, collections or the market place. Uniquely, the plugin lets you use fallback grids that are automatically substituted when Zazzle’s rss feed is down. By default, search and grid paging is switched off but when switched on (with a shortcode option) they allow visitors to interact with the product grids, allowing them to explore and find designs they want. All grids are responsive so they’re perfect for mobile visitors too. With Zazzle’s 45 day cookie, their referral system lets blog owners earn 15% commission on any sales arising from visitors they send to Zazzle’s site.

plugin benefits…

A NiftyGridZ on a blog post

  • Exquisite, responsive, live product grids
  • And live grids means never having broken images or links!
  • Never have an empty page or broken site again when you use the NiftyGridZPro plugin’s fallback grids. They make sure you’re still showing a product grid when Zazzle’s feed mechanism is down
  • Broadcast and rotate your announcements across all product grids with global slot messaging – all in real time!
  • Display Google Ads in all eligible product grids, if you choose
  • Choose as little or as much info as you want displayed with each product
  • Personalize products shown in the grid for specific clients with the template text options
  • Keep your visitors engaged for longer by switching on the inbuilt search form

Allow your users to buy and send gift cards via email, an easy and direct way to encourage new sales.

It’s not a secret that choosing a gift is a hard and rather time consuming process. Customers browse through numerous websites before making their purchase decision. Therefore, there is a high risk that visitors who are not certain about a particular gift may leave your store trying to find ‘something better’.

WordPress Gift Voucher allows customers to buy a gift card much like any other product. In addition to the regular product characteristics, the card provides customers with several customization options, such as specifying card values, choosing card designs, and writing personal messages to recipients. Once the gift card is purchased, its further use may be tracked by a store administrator through the individual gift card code.

CS Multiple Image Import is a simple plugin which enables you to import a zip file containing images and its attributes in excel file to be uploaded in WordPress Media Manager.
This simple plugin is very effective to upload multiple images with image title, image description, image caption and alt tag all at once which needs to be stored in excel format. It worked, but it took a few attempts.
