As the business grew it became apparent quite quickly that the model of offline order processing was becoming cumbersome and the client asked for a full e-commerce solution. We added the WooCommerce plugin to the site, linked it to the client’s Paypal account and set up a variety of shipping options. Initially we created around 20 products with a variety of size, quantity and/or colour options.
This has now grown to include things like school uniforms and reselling products from other suppliers (such as books) using affiliate links, to the point where the site now sells 70 base products. These come with a wide range of options such as size and colour for many of them.
