Over the past 20 years as a Web Development Agency we have built, managed or otherwise supported hundreds of eCommerce websites. These range from small “Mom & Pop” shops to clients featured on Shark Tank doing millions of dollars in sales per month.
This also means we have had a ringside seat to a number of bad ideas, some of which can easily be fixed with minimal effort.
Shopify is a great platform. It is suitable for small businesses and enterprise customers alike.…
FDG Web serves a number of different clients in the Las Vegas, Nevada area. Here is a small sample of some consulting and development projects we have completed.
Project Spotlight: Shopify Integration – Bella J., Las Vegas, NV
We assisted this lifestyle beauty / gift brand, prior to their acquisition by Almar, by integrating their Shopify website with their fulfillment center (Fosdick). We used a pass-through domain using the Shopify API to push and retrieve orders from both systems and dynamically fill in details for shipping alerts and other customer touchpoints.…
Another case study we’d like to feature is one where we added multiple authors and artists to CS-Cart Product searches and product detail pages.
This allows users to click on any one of the authors or artists and see all products that the author or artist is associated with. This appears at the CSCart product details page as well as the search results and filters.
One of the projects we would like to highlight is a recent “Find a Provider” plugin we created for WordPress that allows visitors to search a map and return results for Heathcare Providers within the area of their search.
Case Study: Shopping Cart Product Feed Integration: CS-Cart
For this case study we are going to talk about how we took multiple product feeds and integrated them into a multi-location shopping cart system online.
Client: Pet Depot
Data Feed Format: e-DSS
Shopping Cart: CS-Cart
Scope of Work: Integrate various vendor product feeds (e.g. Lone Star) based on Pet Depot franchise location. Push/pull inventory and images on a daily basis. Import / Export orders on re-occuring basis.
The project focused on three pieces for allowing drop shipping integration into CS-Cart:
Product Data Import and Updates by individual feed (including product images and deleting old images)
Regular Inventory Updates and logic on the shopping cart side to turn on or off products with zero inventory (or display out of stock to keep the urls for SEO)
Order Processing, Notifications, Fulfillment and Invoicing.
