Living by the Book was already a successful eCommerce site selling booklets on Christian themes when they approached me regarding redesigning and rebuilding their platform. The client’s main requirements were that the website should reflect the quality of the printed material they offered, should be eye-catching and easy to use, and should have the ability for customers to make purchases directly on the website.
The approach we took was to set up a WordPress website and use the popular WooCommerce eCommerce plugin to drive the online sales aspect. This allowed for the creation of an online catalogue of products, online ordering and order tracking, and multiple payment options such as the facility to take payment via invoice or instantly via PayPal.
At all times, we communicated what was happening with the client, and were able to offer additional services such as fixing issues with email accounts.
After some time, this website was taken over by The Salvation Army, who absorbed the brand into theirs and the website into their own eCommerce system.
