Within the scope of work on the project, we performed all the main steps of the website development, namely development of the technical requirements, prototyping, confirmation of the design, development of the website, testing, and final release.
Due to the fact that we received this website done on Cake PHP, we made a decision to create it from the very beginning on Laravel PHP Framework.
The product order process itself has 4 steps:
- - Product selection is the step where a visitor can choose a product he likes. It has a user-oriented opportunity to shop by product category, material, price and industry allowing users to have a broad choice of products.
- - Design or upload is the step where a user can choose a ready-made design and move each detail however he wants or create one of his own, as well there is an option to upload a document with requirements and a designer will create one. Once it’s done a user will receive a design and he will need to approve or disapprove it.
- - Sizing and materials is the step where a user can choose the material, size, number of sides, number of colors & quantity.
- - Shipping is the step where a user needs to pay for the order and insert the shipping details as well as get the estimate on the shipping itself.
In case a user has stopped an order in the middle of the process or abandoned a cart, he will get a notification and an email with the suggestion to continue the order. Additionally, there is an easy-to-use and access price calculator which allows evaluating your order before checkout.
