We develop ecommerce systems on two major open-source platforms, Magento and Woocommerce. Although Magento is an excellent option, the backend CMS has a steep learning curve and requires more time for maintenance.
As the point of contact was to be performing the product updates, we chose Woocommerce for its intuitive backend which does not require any previous html or CSS knowledge to perform changes to the site or content.
Post-development CMS training was also provided via remote support sessions as per client requirements.
UK shipping and GBP were provided in the ecommerce core build, with the option for multi-currency & sale outside of the UK to be integrated at a later stage.
