If you are also a retailor, have your ever thought that you will be the formidable opponent of the giant like Amazon and Walmart or at least you desire to compete with them? If our answer is yes, you should build an actually powerful online selling system. So, the core of your marketing strategy should be conversion rate, not just traffic because traffic is just the visible part of the iceberg. There is one thing which is always true that a company selling well will gain high conversion rate. That is the evident truth.

A common mistake of many business owners is putting too much efforts on stimulating traffic amount and almost forgetting conversion rate. If traffic is not converted, what does that high traffic amount mean?  After all, rate of conversion or purchasing seems to be the most proper criteria to evaluate whether how well your business works.

Life has been changing and the way we shopping is now totally different from the past. Nowadays, queuing up outside stores or traveling a long distance to buy something you want from your favorite retailers is just in the past, it’s time for you to forget them. While retail industry is still the billions industry, there is another one has appeared and gone along with the development of retail, that is Ecommerce. It can be said that making the sale online is never a difficult task, especially when you have already had Magento store. From the first time, Magento has been considered as one of the best online store development platforms, business owners love it due to the powerful features provided.

i solved mine by re-pointing mac's php path to MAMP's php

$ cat ~/.bash_profile

PHP_VERSION=`ls /Applications/MAMP/bin/php/ | sort -n | tail -1`

export PATH=/Applications/MAMP/bin/php/${PHP_VERSION}/bin:$PATH

check if your machine is using proper php:

$ php -v

PHP 7.0.8 (cli)

if not, re-point the path through .bash_profile or .profile. that's my solution

Once you have your version, open Finder, press [Shift][Command][G] and enter /Applications/MAMP/bin/php/php5.5.10/conf/. You will see a php.ini file. Open it in your favourite text editor. You are going to change the values of the following variables:

; Maximum size of POST data that PHP will accept.
post_max_size = 256M

; Maximum allowed size for uploaded files.
upload_max_filesize = 256M

; Maximum execution time of each script, in seconds
max_execution_time = 600     

; Maximum amount of time each script may spend parsing request data
max_input_time = 600    

; Maximum amount of memory a script may consume (8MB)
memory_limit = 512M    

It is important to note that for the variables related to size - post_max_size, upload_max_size and memory_limit - you must change the variable to a size larger than that of the .sql file that you are trying to import. My .sql file was 170mb but if you are importing a larger .sql file you need to set the memory-related variables to an appropriately large value.

Now restart MAMP and you should no longer be experiencing the problems.
