Project Description
Plus size clothing Ireland.ie required a complete ecommerce system to sell their products online, as previously they only sold physically to customers. They also noticed that a lot of men prefer shopping online instead of going from shop to shop looking for sizes.

Why Drupal was chosen: 

Big Thanks to everyone involved in Drupal, we develop all of our sites with this great tool

Describe the project (goals, requirements and outcome): 

Goals
The Goals were as follows

  • to create an online shop to sell the products
  • to enable customers to pay online through paypal or by ringing the shop
  • to have the system user friendly, so the shop owner can manage the shop (50years old and not IT literate)
  • to ensure that the products are found on Google

Solution

The solution that was provided achieved the following:

A content management System so the client can update the website as they see fit
Secure payment system
The website linked to social media platforms that would benefit them
A latest news section
Assisted with promotions on the site, including a listing on Groupon
Custom design to suit the clients needs
Website optimised for Search engine optimisation.

We started with a fusion theme, but ended up modifying it heavily.
We used ubercart for the ecommerce aspect, and I must say its a great product
The site is tailored for SEO
The payment gate way is just using paypal at the moment
Also set up for google product search

One major benefit of Drupal that is not often mentioned is how well it is set up for SEO. We saw a clear benefit in the search engines once we had optimised.

Basically, ended up with a site and CMS that matched our needs perfectly, and also enables us to extend functionality easily.
The client can now add products and manage the store completely by himself
