Want to attract the attention of potential customers visiting your webshop? If so, be sure to check out this extension. The Flexslider responsive banner slider will allow you to add elegant sliders with both images and video slides. First create a slider group and configure it as you see fit. After creating a slider group you can add unlimited image and video slides to this group, again with various configuration options. You can add these banner sliders pretty much anywhere on your webshop.

Some potential usecases, add a full screen image slider to your homepage for better branding or add a slider to the cart to promote potential cross sell items. Or what about a slider add to a product for showing extra product images in an attractive way. For each added banner slider you can choose to add navigation arrows in different styles, choose different transition effects, auto start sliding the slides, show a progress bar, add caption text and a whole bunch of other features that can all be customized to your needs.

And don't worry about visitors using mobile devices, this extension is one of the few if not the only extension that adds responsive banner sliders that don't just scale right on small screens but actually load smaller sized images reducing bandwidth and thus increasing loadtime for mobile visitors. The extension comes with a lot of configuration options that can all be easily managed through the backend. Check out the screenshots or the demo yourself.
