The trend indicator shows you at a glance how your shop’s performance compares to the past.


Store Preview Button for Administration

For a store manager who works a lot on the dashboard, it’s kind of inconvenient to always copy the URL from the browser and open another tab to see the storefront. Store Preview Button helps you fix this and make it very convenient. When this plugin is installed and activated admins can see a button on the admin side header which in one click opens the storefront in another tab. It eliminates the need to copy-paste the URL or type in the URL every time to see any change that is made in the admin.

This plugin helps to directly open the deep URL of a category or product or shopping experience. This is very useful to go directly to a product or category while you edit and save it from the administration.
