It is that time of the year when you would like to set new goals for the remaining part of 2014 which will bring bigger and better results for your eCommerce store based on Magento. To help store owners end 2014 on a high, TechnoScore’s Magento Web Development experts have prepared a list of the top 5 Magento extensions. So, make sure that when you grab the basket to wander around the Magento Connect MarketPlace, you fill your cart with these extensions, before anything else.
1 One Page Checkout
This free extension reduces the steps involved in checkout process, thereby increasing revenue and conversion rate. Customers can complete information fields swiftly with the stored information from the browser while the administrators can configure GeoIP settings, specify default payment method, enable and configure PayPal Lightbox and do much more. This extension is compatible with Magento Community Editions 1.6.x – 1.9.x and Enterprise Editions 1.11.x – 1.14.x.

A free extension compatible with Magento stores built on Community Editions 1.5 to 1.8. 1 and Enterprise Editions 1.10 to 1.13.1, Address Validation with Capture+ speeds up address entry with high accuracy at the source. This easy-to-install extension features built-in geo-location which looks at the current whereabouts of a user and returns full address details of the properties in the immediate area.
3 AJAX Scroll
The AJAX Scroll extension is apt for store owners to showcase those products in the catalog which have never seen the light of the day. The Magento AJAX Scroll Module is one of the best ways to reduce the bounce rate and draw customers’ attention to the products in the catalog.

Store owners operating a Magento store on Community Editions 1.4 to 1.9 and Enterprise Editions 1.8 to 1.14 can create a vintage ‘Buy 1, Get 1 Free’ promotional strategy by spending $79 and $229, respectively.
5 Customer Notes
The Customer Notes extension allows store owners to bridge the communication gap between different users with administrative privileges. This extension is extremely helpful as it helps store owners in keeping notes against a customer’s account which can be used when they interact with the customer.
