“Offer Unique Multi-Vendor Functionality”
A Startup eCommerce Store
Details of Our Client
Our client is a startup eCommerce store owner who has worked with us in the past. The client is a young entrepreneur, based in Australia who has had a successful hobby creating handmade wooden toys and games. He’s been making these items for nearly 10 years, but only started selling them online in the last year. Specifically, we have built their website and developed a custom-made web app that manages their inventory and accounts. We use Laravel in many of our web development projects and were excited to continue helping our client push his business forward by using this technology.
Our Client’s Purpose
Now, our client wants to build a Laravel app that will help them automate their marketing campaigns.
The client wanted to build a mobile app that can be used by his customers to buy toys online. The app should have an option to select from the various toys available, and the selected item can be added to the shopping cart. The customer will also receive regular updates about the new arrivals and offers.
The client wanted us to develop an eCommerce web application where customers can add/update/delete products from the shopping cart, search for products and make payments through digital methods such as PayPal, credit card, debit card, etc. Customers should have a personalized dashboard from which they can manage their orders and deliveries.
Challenges Faced by Our Client
- The client had no experience in PHP or Laravel and needed to be able to make updates to his site.
- The product page was not turning into mobile responsive.
- The client was facing difficulty in managing the inventory and had no visibility of his store’s performance.
- He was not able to track the shipment or order process.
