A local Port Stephens business, Love Oil Collection, came to us needing a new website. Their regular web designer was retiring and they wanted a new look in a responsive site that would be easy to expand in the future. An online shop was required for retail sales with the ability to expand the site for separate Wholesale users and a different pricing structure. At the time they were wholesaling to approximately 900 retail shops in Australia, with an offer of around 60 products in their range.
Their brand was already well known so we took that as a starting point.
We built the site with WordPress and WooCommerce as together they offered the ability to expand in the future using the wide range of plugins available. We also registered a variant of their domain name for better SEO and to protect the name.
The client provided all the images, price, weight and dimension details for product shipping and a spreadsheet of all the stores. This made it easy for the data entry and store importing for the interactive Google map search facility.
Once the store had been up and running for several months we then tackled the Wholesale section.
A local Australian plugin was found which suited the brief for a separate login and pricing, and that integrated seamlessly with WooCommerce.
The result was an easy to navigate, responsive site, that met the brief and client satisfaction.
Bluestarfish Web Design continues to maintain the site on the client’s behalf.
