    OpenCart Customer Membership Module

    Customer retention is a major concern for e-commerce businesses. Therefore, a person who owns an e-commerce site must ensure that they are implementing strategies so as to keep their customers intact to the stores.

    Through the Opencart Customer Membership Module, the admin can create memberships and the customers can go forth and purchase the membership as per the requirement.

    The admin configures or selects the products for each membership plan. The customer can take leverage of the benefits such as discounts if buying a product which falls under a respective membership plan.

    The admin also defines a time duration for which the membership plan shall be active. If need be, the admin can add, or delete or edit any membership plan.

    A button displaying Membership Benefits through a pop up will be visible to the customers on the product page. The admin can click on the Membership tab so as to view the plan details applicable on the membership product.

    This way a store owner will be successful in converting the visitors of a store to permanent customers. This will create higher sales conversions, thereby generating real revenue for a store.
