Fiona already has two very successful online shops for baby products and she came back for her third website! She wanted a website that caters to her retailers, for them to purchase at wholesale prices and to have access to promotional materials. Having established her online trading and gained distributorship for several products from overseas, Fiona wants to look after her retailers well. No doubt, wholesale pricing option could be added to an existing website but it’s best to keep it separate either as an independent website with a domain name of its own or on a sub-domain. We chose the former rather than the latter.Fiona started by getting a logo designed and approached me after two unsatisfactory results. After some research, scribbles and sketches, I presented Fiona with my drafts which she accepted and then fine-tuned. More about that on a separate post.
Cuddle Me Baby website is built on the same theme as Fiona’s Sleepytot website. This makes it easy for her to maintain the website as it will work the same as that site which she is already familiar with. It has a full-width and a very simple Home page, with an eye-catching image slider showing off all the products.
The shopping cart functionality is boosted with a shipping plugin so that charges could be made based on different weight classes and when shipped to different parts of New Zealand. It also adds GST onto orders. The third functionality is to have Wholesale Customers having access to wholesale prices while others will see or purchase at regular prices.
