Published on

Magento Daily Deal allows the store owner to create different promotional campaigns for any product in the store. It enriches your deal site to encourage customers by setting the discount price and length of time below each deal and showing how much money they can save. Also, this module enables new deals to be displayed regularly; therefore, customers can’t help checking your site every day. Particularly, customers can share the deals in their social networks including Facebook or Twitter and help your Magento store more and more popular.
