Sometimes, customers want to exchange information with you about a product in a private way and to receive response through their emails. Especially, when it involves a valuable product or includes confidential information. If you want to interact with customers, why don’t you use an extension which has this feature?
In the Magento administration, when you want to list your products, you see a GridView (a kind of table with which can be sorted, edit an article, delete etc …) and you’ll say that it could be nice to use the same in our module. In this tutorial we’ll see how to insert a GridView in the administration part of our Magento plugin.
A Magento Grid is constructed from a set of files that you will find in the file Block/Adminhtml from your module.
1 – The Grid Container
Create a folder: \app\code\local\Pfay\Test\Block\Adminhtml\ and put in a file Grid.php. This is the file which (as its name suggests) will contain your Grid. It contains:

Over the course of our experience, we've found there are generally two types of merchants: those who understand the importance of design and those who will. Site design—which encompasses visual design, user experience, and even content—helps to implicitly and explicitly establish customer trust. It helps define your brand and differentiate it from the competition, and there's no shortage of that.

Depending of what merchandise your shop specializes in, you may need different product types. The basic, simple product type logic is straightforward: a product has a price, it has product information like pictures and descriptions, it has inventory that can be linked to a warehouse management system. Products of this type can be placed into a shopping cart, paid, packed and sent. But it is not always that simple. You may need products that are not physical, but are files that can be downloaded by customers who bought them. Your products may be still physical, but consist of several options, which customers must choose from before adding their chosen combination to the shopping cart. Several simple products could be grouped together and sold as a single one. Or a product may be just an entry in your catalog whose details page has a link redirecting to the shop of your partner. We are talking about product types that have certain behaviour and require functionality sometimes similar…
Mit dem Fokusthema “Payment” hat Flagbit beim 11. Magento Stammtisch Karlsruhe voll ins Schwarze getroffen und das Interesse vieler Besucher vor Ort und per Livestream geweckt. Den kritischen und vielfältigen Fragen stellten sich Christina Wünsche von Ogone Payment Services, Marc Helmhold von PAYONE in Vertretung von Jan Sperber sowie Balduin Müller-Platz, unabhängiger Payment-Berater, How2Pay Consulting.
Egal ob man als Dienstleister, Shopbetreiber oder auf andere Weise im E-Commerce involviert ist, um das Thema Bezahllösungen kommt man nicht drumherum. Eine große Diskussion zu Beginn waren die großen Unterschiedn im Payment zwischen den einzelnen Ländern, selbst zwischen europäischen Nachbarländern. Gerade in Deutschland steht dabei – wenig überraschend – das Wort Sicherheit an erster Stelle.
