Virtina recently won a valuable project from a well-known wildlife NGO. For the last two decades, the client has been one of America's most prestigious wildlife organizations. It is prominent for doing great work in preserving the wildlife biodiversity of our planet. Its current website runs on a WooCommerce platform that offers raffle tickets, event updates, and information about ongoing projects.
When the client had a meeting with Virtina experts, they discussed how the NGO performed a wide variety of tasks for the community. Toward the end of the discussion, the client settled on specific changes they wanted to implement on the current website for its digital audience.
The wildlife NGO faced quite a few hurdles in optimizing its current WooCommerce website. Some of the few challenges they faced included the addition of new pages on its WooCommerce platform, integrating seamless payments containing membership plans, and creating visual cataloging. Professionals at Virtina understood the core of the problem and took inspiration from its previous cases to tailor an efficient solution for the client
The initial step was to conduct an in-depth assessment of the client's platform. After which, our WooCommerce experts at Virtina offered insights as to how the NGO could leverage some of the services Virtina provides as part of its WooCommerce development services. To further increase the transparency between the client and Virtina, our experts also chartered the roadmap to help the client understand the process our team was about to implement.
To tackle the issues, they were divided into categories. Primarily the challenges were divided into visual design changes, payment gateways updates, and plugins that allowed processing fees and integration of the subscriptions model for the site. The solution offered by our Virtina WooCommerce experts included revamping the project page to allow a better User experience and adding a photo gallery plugin offered by WooCommerce that would allow seamless visuals with an accordion effect.
The overall changes made to the design increased the website's visual appeal. Our professionals also added a membership plan that allowed the NGO users to subscribe based on their convenience. They could choose from monthly, yearly, or one-time lifetime fees.
The most challenging task assigned to the team was that the client wanted to offer a ticket booking page for the website through which members could purchase tickets via online payments. The clients also requested a very rare feature that businesses often deploy: adding an option in the backend to add the processing fee (certain percentage) for all the products except for Donation. It required a bit of strategizing and hard work, but it was nothing that our team couldn't accomplish. Our talented experts utilized the WooCommerce extra fees plugin to meet the client's requirements.
The team devoted their best efforts and expertise to completing the tasks successfully and meeting client requirements. At Virtina, we value our client's valuable time and are committed to following the deadlines. Thus, our developers ensured it took less time, and not a day was crossed beyond the set deadline. The client appreciated this, and they even acknowledged the effort and upgrades made to the website. The website's optimization updates resulted in faster checkouts, high subscriptions, and a better user experience.
The development team at Virtina is proud to have devoted time and resources to a worthwhile cause that will directly benefit the community. Virtina is looking to give back to society, and taking on projects like such is a testament to that. The development team was happy to see that the NGO could bring in higher donations through seamless payment gateways, a greater volume of visitors, and increased subscriptions due to their efforts.
