Virtina recently partnered with a modular access mat company in Los Angeles on a groundbreaking project to transform outdoor accessibility for people of all abilities. Our client's vision is to enable everyone to experience the great outdoors, and we were only humble to be a part of the project.
The company sought Virtina's expertise in eCommerce development due to their limited WooCommerce knowledge and needed the help of a true expert. Our collaborative project aimed to reach a broader audience and enhance the overall user experience through strategic implementations.
Virtina tackled several challenges to pave the way for a genuinely inclusive outdoor experience. Our experts had to tackle product bundle configurations, ShipStation integration, shipping cost customization, and backend inventory management to deliver the project.
Streamlining WooCommerce Product Bundles and Inventory Management for Optimal Efficiency
The modular access mat company wanted to cater to the diverse customer needs in the most efficient way possible. We had to implement product bundle capabilities for the client's WooCommerce website due to the nature of the products they sell. Handling product bundles without the right expertise could lead to inventory mismanagement and discrepancies.
The client trusted Virtina's ingenious approach could resolve this issue. Our expert team found that the WooCommerce setup treated each pack as one product in the inventory rather than multiple individual units. For instance, a pack of 10 access mats was consolidated into one product entry, leading to an inventory management nightmare.
We had to ensure the client's WooCommerce system treated each item in a pack of products and accounted for the inventory accordingly. If a user purchases a product (pack on N numbers), the total number of products in the stock will go down by the same (N) number.
With the streamlined WooCommerce product bundles, customers can conveniently select the pack size that best suits their requirements. Doing so enables us to personalize the shopping experience for customers. Moreover, Virtina ensured real-time inventory data updates after every purchase.
This nifty little part of the project eliminates the risk of overselling and enhances order fulfillment efficiency. Thanks to Virtina, the user can choose the desired pack and proceed to checkout without the risk of products running out abruptly.
ShipStation Integration for Enhanced Shipping Flexibility
Shipping is one of the most critical aspects of an eCommerce business. The client wanted to implement a smooth and flexible shipping solution for its customers. Furthermore, the client desired to offer a seamless on-site experience to their customers.
Our team's expertise in ShipStation integration proved invaluable for the client. We seamlessly integrated ShipStation's powerful shipping platform with the client's WooCommerce site. As a result, the WooCommerce website can now access a vast database of shippers.
The client can quickly check out the respective deliverable areas, compare shipping rates for specific locations, and more. By integrating ShipStation into the client's WooCommerce website, we ensured customers could access the best shippers, such as UPS, DHL, and more.
The ShipStation integration enables the client to factor in delivery time, cost, and reliability. Moreover, the users can get the best shipping method depending on their address, ensuring a satisfactory delivery experience.
Hassle-Free Checkout With Transparent Handling Charges
The WooCommerce developers at Virtina helped the client recognize the importance of transparent pricing and efficient order fulfillment on their WooCommerce site. Virtina implemented a handling charge for each product sold in its online store. The handling charge encompasses all costs of sending the product, from packing to dispatching it to the shipper.
We ensured a seamless and hassle-free checkout experience for the client's customers. With transparent handling charges, we helped the client build trust and confidence in their brand. Furthermore, the checkout experience eliminated any surprise charges, ensuring an intuitive user experience and establishing a reputation for the brand.
WooCommerce Plugin Integration for Efficient Backend Inventory Management
Virtina expertly integrated a specialized WooCommerce plugin tailored to the client's requirements. The inventory management plugin helped us ensure the effortless handling of product bundles and packs. Instead of treating each pack or bundle as one product, the plugin counts the items in the pack as separate units.
The customized setup ensured accurate tracking of available stock. Moreover, it eliminated the possibility of overselling and the product being available online even when the client eventually ran out of stock. Our experts were able to streamline the entire inventory management process for the client.
The plugin automatically deducts the corresponding quantity from the total inventory count whenever a customer purchases a product bundle. As a result of the WooCommerce plugin integration, we ensured real-time updates on stock levels on the client's website.
It also led to an increase in operational efficiency for the client's WooCommerce website. Furthermore, the seamless integration synced the inventory data across the WooCommerce website, providing the client and their customers with a comprehensive view of stock availability.
Redefining Outdoor Accessibility with Virtina's eCommerce Expertise
Our collaborative effort with the client is another step towards revolutionizing outdoor accessibility for individuals of all abilities. Virtina leveraged its WooCommerce knowledge and expertise to help our client offer product bundles on its website while maintaining efficient inventory management.
Besides, the seamless integration of ShipStation empowers users with a wide range of shipping options. Furthermore, the transparent handling charges ensure a hassle-free checkout process, further optimizing the customer experience on the WooCommerce website.With Virtina's WooCommerce development services, the client can now focus on its core mission of enabling people of all abilities to access the outdoors. Moreover, the efficient backend inventory management system Virtina created ensures product availability and optimizes the customer's shopping experience.
