Cart Reservation Magento Extension

Overview of Cart Reservation Extension for Magento

Magento Cart Reservation Extension allows customers to temporarily reserve products they have added to their cart. When a customer adds an item to his cart, it is reserved for "x" amount of minutes before they become available again to other customers. So, the customer has the opportunity to purchase these products first. The Magento cart countdown and stock alert message used within this Magento Cart Timer module are a great way to monitor stock availability.

Magento cart timer allows site owner to create urgency without pressure. Items in your customer shopping cart will expire after a certain amount of minutes. This makes your customers want to hurry and buy before someone else does. Events and products can sell out quickly so clients must keep an eye on the countdown clock in their cart in order to secure the picks. If an item they want is in another member's cart, they can refresh the browser or check back on the item throughout the duration of the event to see if it has become available.

There are two types of cart reservation timers available: the countdown timer for each product separately or reservation of all products in the cart. The extension allows you to set the general time of reservation including both cart reservation and checkout reservation providing more time for the purchase to be completed which leads to higher sales conversion rates and higher customer satisfaction. Lastly the website owner has two options for products after the reservation time expires - to delete the products from the cart or to leave them in the cart unreserved.



Limited Stock Reservations

If you are running private sales, daily deals, flash sales or sample sales website where you have limited quantities of product in stock – then this extension is for you!


Ticket Reservations

Allow your customers to reserve concert tickets, flights, car rentals, hotel bookings in shopping cart just like any other product.


Holiday Sales and Special Deals

Have lots of products in stock but still want to make it look like the stock will run out? Use shopping cart timer to create urgency of sale without pressure on your customers during holiday sales and special events.


Offline Reservations

If you are using offline payment methods, such as cash on delivery, then our “reservation after checkout” feature will let you reserve the product until the payment is made or otherwise return it automatically back in stock.
