Depending on the requirement, you may have to use Magento addons – which are offered by third-party developers to better manage your operations – be it product catalogs, orders, email, finances, etc.
To make it easier for you, we have listed below our top 10 picks for Magento extensions that will surely give your online retail efforts a boost.
