What were the client’s requirements?
The client needed his existing WooCommerce website to be customized. He wanted to make it simple for visitors to select products, based on filters. An additional functionality needed, was the option to custom build products to be purchased.
How did We Provide a Solution?
The entire website was customized to suit the clients requirements. The theme was customized to accommodate user experience design changes. Extension plugins were created for the WooCommerce plugin, which included, a custom filter and a product builder extension. The WooCommerce shipping extension was modified to allow different shipping methods for products part of a single purchase.
FOD Control Corporation offers F.O.D-‘foreign object debris’ prevention services and products. The website is a sales portal for the business. A major functionality the client wanted, was a simple option for potential customers, to select the products they were interested in purchasing. For this, an interactive product selector was added to the WooCommerce store. The product selector was a step-wise interface. At every step a user could select a component of the product. Finally, based on the selected components the final product is displayed, which could be then purchased.
Another important functionality that was added was custom product filters. This functionality was provided using a custom plugin. For every WooCommerce product custom attributes were added. In the front-end product filters options were added, using which customers could easily search or short-list products.
Some of the products sold on the site had preset shipping methods. Hence the WooCommerce Shippings extension was modified to allow WooCommerce products with different shipping methods, to be purchased as part of a single order.
The theme was also customized according to the client’s specification.
