Custom eCommerce Development: Doing Business Your WaySeptember 11, 2019 0 By david
Creating an online store should be a vision. You have an idea of what you want, but you don’t know how to make it happen and you need help. That’s when you turn to a team of experts who can get the job done.
Custom eCommerce website development projects occur all the time to give online businesses features that are desired. Need a third-party integration completed? Custom development is the answer. Need a special feature that you can’t get on your platform? A custom development project will do it.
At 1Digital Agency, we provide custom solutions all the time, using our expert development team. All you have to do is let us know what you want your website to be and what you want it to do and we’ll let you know what is possible. After the work is completed, we conduct an extensive QA process with you to test your new tools and features across multiple browsers and operating systems to make sure everything functions properly.
There are many things that can go into a development project. Custom development presents the options to customize your features and offer things that your competition may not be capable of offering. Responsive development makes your website mobile and tablet friendly, perfect in an age when more and more transactions happen on devices other than desktop computers. Sometimes clients also outgrow their eCommerce platform and need to expand to reach their full potential. A platform and data migration can get this done.
Below are a few clients who recently completed development projects with 1Digital Agency. Here are their stories and some of the work that we did to help them reach new heights.
La Española Beauty Supply
Using BigCommerce’s custom group functionality, La Española Beauty Supply created two main customer groups: students and wholesale partners. Both groups get a discount on items available. We used a third-party service and integrated it with the BigCommerce website to create the two custom groups. What this does is allow the user to be placed within the group by filling out forms. Once accepted by the team at La Española, they will see these special products and prices when they log in.
Buy Rocket Motors
Buyrocketmotors.com provides a unique product that requires additional hazmat shipping charges be included in certain purchases. We built custom scripts and shipping rules that would apply these charges to the products that require special handling. We identified the different cart combinations and actions needed to develop the shipping rules needed for this tool. The website now has automated processes that occur at checkout. This automatically applies the appropriate shipping charges, providing the customer with full disclosure and a path for completing the purchase easily.
Creating custom orders was a differentiating feature for TrailHeads. This required two things: creating an understanding of the benefit of creating custom orders and the ability to place one. What we did was create a FAQ page with a gallery and expandable content that explained the benefits of custom orders and provided the steps on how to create one. We also created a custom product page that has areas where customers can browse from a selection of product videos and explanations.
Sometimes a development project has little to do with creating something new and just fixing up some things that need to be repaired. In the case of AVLeaderz, there were several broken pages that needed to be cleaned up and a custom search tool that no longer functioned. The tool was created to allow customers to enter in the make, model and year of their car and find applicable audio and stereo equipment. While we attempted to save the original tool, it was beyond repair, so we created a new search tool that had the same capabilities.
A new development project can help set your eCommerce site apart from the rest. Having a website that functions well is essential to success. Whether this is a special feature that helps customers find the products they need or get as much information about the products as possible or just a responsive development project that emphasizes the mobile-first movement and catering to people who browse websites on their mobile devices, having a team of development experts behind you to complete any project gives your website the uniqueness and functionality it needs to be successful.
