Statistics tool update

Big update to our statistics. We are now collecting every interaction with any element on cookie banner, accepting/declining cookies, closing banner, reading cookie policy, etc. Cookie statistics tool now also allows you to track what categories were actively selected by visitor. All data is presented in updated charts. Actions data is grouped and not personalized, so it cannot be considered private data, which means no user agreement needed to collect it.

Magento Template Generator - discount for all Cookie-Script users

Cookie-Script is a service that helps users to comply with GDPR requirements when it comes to cookies. Our tool is mostly used by website owners, web developers and web agencies.

A lot of our clients are either doing website development or building websites from scratch. For that they usually use some kind of Content Management Systems (CMS), for example Wordpress, Joomla, PrestaShop or OpenCart.

Why Magento?

Another popular e-commerce Content Management System is Magento. It is designed for advanced web shops, has a big community and is considered world's #1 eCommerce Platform. It has been released over 11 years ago and keeps growing and improving.

How to make e-shop with Magento?

Making eCommerce website with Magento is pretty straight forward: just download installation file, unpack it, go through installation process and you are ready to go. However having default looking e-shop is not too professional, so in most cases users need to design or buy pre-designed theme for the e-shop. Making unique design for Magento CMS could be quite pricy and buying pre-designed template will mean some other webshop has the same look.

Template generator - easiest way to start unique Magento e-store.

Another option to start webshop with a custom look and not spend thousands of dollars - use Magento Theme Generator. We are happy to announce that Cookie-Script has partnered with the only web based Magento Theme Generator: Theme Factory.

Theme-Factory is a platform for designing and making Magento Themes online, no need to download or install anything. You can always adjust a look of your webshop as you want, add custom backgrounds, adjust page elements, colors and sizes.

The cool part.

Since Cookie-Script users are often involved in website designing and creation, we are giving away a 50% discount for Theme Factory services. Yes, you heard it right: all Cookie-Script users can use Theme-Factory services with a 50% discount, just use the following code when buying Theme-Factory services: COOKIEDISCOUNT
