IDP recently launched a new web design project for ORO International. The responsive web design project was a website re-design of their existing website. The new web design project was built on WordPress content management system. The project included graphic design work, web design mockups, WordPress development, WooCommerce development, PHP programming, product data imports, wholesale customer functionality, search engine optimization and web hosting. The website is a wholesale jewelry site they do not sell directly to the public. The products were setup in WooCommerce like a normal ecommerce web site. The jewelry is available to view online but only ORO customers can login and view pricing. IDP completed custom web development work in order to import all of the jewelry product database, setup private wholesale logins and custom pricing for wholesale customers.
The hardest part of the project was the data import. The client had all of the data in separate Excel files but the data had to be re-organized and cleaned up. We helped the client organize the data into fields / columns and setup the field names and a CSV data template to use to get the data ready to import. We were able to use a WordPress data import plugin to do the advanced configurable product imports and get them setup properly in WooCommerce. The imports were split up into separate CSV files for each group of products to make it easier to accomplish the import one step at a time. The jewelry images were loaded with the CSV file data import. IDP also imported the wholesale customers into WooCommerce. We used a special WordPress wholesale suite plugin to handle the discount pricing for wholesale customers.
Web Design Project Results
The web design project turned out great we are very happy with it and excited to have a great new customer like ORO International! The product category pages and product pages turned out really nice. We were able to do some custom programming and configurable product data imports in order to populate the product filters seen in this screenshot below. Jewelry filters for metal, color and weight help customers easily filter and shop jewelry products to narrow down and find what they are looking for quickly.
