Magento offers wall-to-wall customisation for home improvement retailer
Going by their name alone, The Skirting Board Shop seems rather specialist – but they actually offer a huge range of architraves, interior window sills, door casings, linings and accessories too. In fact, they have plenty of choice for home interior improvements. When the company came to iWeb for a bespoke eCommerce web site, our own skilled designers and builders delivered a flexible solution on time and on budget.
The new web site was made affordable by choosing to build it around a customised version of the hugely popular Magento eCommerce platform. As Magento is open source, most of the expensive development time has already been undertaken by a huge global community – which means iWeb can pass that saving onto our clients.
The Skirting Board Shop eCommerce web site showcases the company’s wide range of products for easy browsing. The ordering facility needed to be flexible as customers are buying specific amounts of material, rather than identical products. To help users order the correct amount, iWeb included an easy calculator on the product pages. Then purchase is just as problem-free through secure Sagepay/Paypal payment integration. Deliveries also had to allow for varying amounts and sizes of material – so the checkout process methodically takes customers through a range of options step-by-step.
When dealing with any building materials, one size does not fit all – and that applies to a Magento eCommerce web site too. The Skirting Board Shop site demonstrates how the platform can be fine-tuned and customised to suit the individual needs of the seller. If you’d like the experts at iWeb to give your online presence a fresh new look too, why not get in touch?
