Virtina won a prestigious project from a gardening company. The brand focuses on helping customers grow quality produce in their households. The brand allows residents in urban habitats to rediscover sustainable ways to grow fresh, nutritious, and delicious food. In essence, it makes it easy to grow food at home.
The client runs their eCommerce business on WooCommerce. They sell gardening kits, plants, and other accessories on their online store. The kits help consumers grow their indoor farm of herbs, fruits, and leafy greens. All this with the highest yield and that too with the least effort and investment.
The client wanted to add express payment options to the checkout process's first step (contact details). The client wished to test, configure, and display various payment options in this part of the checkout process. These payment options would include PayPal, Google Pay, Apple Pay, and Amazon Pay.
Besides this, this client wanted to add shipping validation at checkout. As per this, the client requested that adding the Zipcode must auto-populate the City and State. Furthermore, the process must verify whether the validity of the shipping address. If not, provide the closest match to a valid shipping address.
Further from this, the client wanted to tweak the layout of the product items in the cart dropdown menu. They also wanted to change the order and design of the shipping fields. Furthermore, the client requested to change the behavior of the title within a field. Essentially, the label must move up and get smaller when a user fills the field instead of disappearing.
The client also requested to have the power to change the cross-sell and up-sell items from the backend. The user must see the products pre-configured by the admin from the backend at checkout. Beyond this, they wished to show a message, pre-check the offers box, and adjust the cart summary pop-up box.
Plus, change the order total as per the tax from the buyers shipping address, have a sticky "Checkout" CTA through the cart process, the user gets to vary the quantity of the products through a dropdown menu that goes all the way to 12, show a dropdown to enter a gift card, and make a couple of other design changes.
The WoCommerce experts at Virtina used the WooCommerce Address Validation plugin to autofill city and state based on Zipcode. The use of the plugin helped to verify the address to determine its validity. The plugin also helped to provide an address closest to the one entered if it was invalid.
The team of experts at Virtina decided to configure the WooCommerce Cart Add Ons plugin. The plugin would help the store owner display specific cross-sell and up-sell products to a buyer at checkout. Using this, admins could easily modify the recommendations from an easy-to-use interface on the backend.
The WooCommerce developers at Virtina analyzed the client's requirements and implemented them all on the checkout page. From adding more payment methods to highlighting a field, changing the design, and retaining information entered on the fields, users won't have to type it all over again if they decide to switch to another section.
As a result of our work, the client could streamline and elevate the checkout experience greatly. What was otherwise a cluttered checkout process was more organized and user-friendly. Additionally, the availability of more payment methods gave their users more ways to place an order, increasing the client's sales and profits.
