The client wanted an easy-to-use website voor children’s clothing and deco accessories. Some items should be visible in multiple categories. Every item has a lot of variants, like sizes and colours. The back-end of the website should be integrated with a shipping partner and a payment gateway.
We used Bison for the eCommerce system and it turned out to be a great and very flexible plugin. There was built in support for many different gateways and shipping options. Orders are stored as files, so you can edit and alter order information if needed. We used Raven for visitors who want to ask a question about a specific item. Because we can use html templates for emails, we can send the user a nicely formatted email including an image of the item. Extra bonus points for storing all those mails in the control panel, so you have a nice overview of all emails ever sent.
Many thanks to all users of the Lodge which helped us with various Statamic issues. And many many may thanks to Jason Varga who helped us a lot with the integration of a payment gateway and event built some extra things in Bison, just for us!
