Project Overview/Challenge

Greatsoil had a variety of different shipping totals that could not be computed with a standard option set as the shipping options varied according to location and item delivered. Wed Design Solutions was asked to troubleshoot the situation in order to create a manageable shipping structure that could streamline their day to day operations. Greatsoil also wanted to ensure that their old site would transfer over seamlessly to Web Shop Manager without a loss of data or functionality.

To create a fully functioning and secure site that would allow Greatsoil to easily calculate fluctuating shipping costs, Web Design Solutions enrolled a mix of standard template items along with customized importing options. Today, Greatsoil has a safe and secure site that is not only easy to navigate but also easy to manage. Through the use of Web Shop Manager, Greatsoil is able to manage their products easily and confidently with the knowledge that the team at Web Design Solutions is always there for support. They are happy that they can now have a stress free and stable website that is able to give their customers an easy to use interface for secure and no-nonsense shopping experience.
