Golf Retailer Web Design

Our golfing retailer website design team were contacted by Mr Whitaker of Golf Gifts for you because he wanted to upgrade his current site to an easier to manage eCommerce platform as the existing site was on the eCommerce software osCommerce which he felt was not working so well for him.

After having a telephone meeting Mr Whitaker had his heart set on our golfing retailer website design specialists building his new online store on the world renowned Magento commerce software, he explained that he has heard lots of positive things about this platform and the features available would really suit his shop going forward as he was looking to expand his range and also wanted to ensure his customers got an easy, no hassle shopping experience.

Our Magento eCommerce agency got to work on his new store and completed the following tasks:

  • We built the new shop on our demo server, so the original golf shop was still live and ready to take orders.
  • The next task was to install and configure the Magento software using its version 1 and then add a template.
  • Our developers then added a plugin which would assist in migrating all the important data over, for example all registered customers details and logins and all previous order history.
  • The next job was to ensure the checkout process was seamless and hassle free and only a single page, it was important to this client that his customers did not need to make multiple clicks when buying golf goods from him.
  • Mr Whitaker had two payment gateways he wanted configured to the new store which were Sage Pay and PayPal. We required API key codes and logins to enable us to add these to the checkout section.
  • We also added the postage charges along with the ability to get an estimated delivery cost through the adding of a customers postcode and country.

We requested the client to go through and check the postage charges and payments gateways were working correctly and to his requirements in our testing environment before proceeding with the next stage of the design and development.

We encountered a few errors and a small bug that needed fixing with the Sage Pay payment integration, this was fixed, and we continued with the following works:

  • Prestige’s in-house graphic designer was beavering away creating a selection of mock-ups for a new logo. We then delivered the final logo in 3 different formats for online and print.
  • Our talented designers were hard at work creating the perfect look that reflected the business and golf products that were for sale. The team also integrated a wish list which could also be shared with others.
  • We then went on to add all the store categories and products.
  • Our talented developers had to custom code the personalised gift products so there were fields available to add a name or message on the gift.
  • Golf Gifts wanted the ability to allow customers to leave product reviews and to be able to the create weekly or monthly newsletters and promotions with discount codes.
  • Facebook, Twitter and other social sites were also integrated along with share buttons.

Websites designed for sellers of golfing equipment and accessories

Once the website was completed and we had tested to ensure all was working as it should we then processed an updated migration of registered customers and order history to ensure the new site had the latest information.

Since we have built the Golfing Gifts website we have worked with this company on many occasions in relation to updates, hosting, emails and small changes to the site.

We were then contacted in 2018 by Mr Whitaker as he wanted to upgrade from his current version 1 website to the new version 2 of Magento, this required a complete overhaul of the site and a brand-new look and feel, we completed the migration without too many issues and now this client is enjoying a new website with the latest version of Magento.
