At Virtina, we believe no project is ever too big or small. It is one of the aspects that separates us from other companies providing WooCommerce development services. We were only happy to undertake a recent project from a specialized Fintech solution provider.
The client wanted to customize their existing custom plugin for WooCommerce stores to enable customers to redeem reward points from its partnering stores. Our WooCommerce experts quickly got the ball rolling and customized the plugin per the client’s requirements.
Here is how we customized the client’s WooCommerce plugin and helped them launch it to the marketplace.
WooCommerce Customization for Redeeming Offers From Partnering Sites
Our client initially used a custom-made plugin for WooCommerce sites to enable donors to redeem their reward points across their partner stores. However, the plugin did not meet WooCommerce standards. Moreover, the existing plugin could only serve basic functionalities and needed to be more flexible to accommodate the user’s needs.
Since the plugin was unavailable in the WooCommerce plugin marketplace, there were accessibility issues. It also made partnering entities doubt integrating the client’s plugin into their WooCommerce store. Our developers could customize the plugin and fix up the plugin as per WooCommerce standards.
We implemented many custom features to the client’s existing plugin, including pre-applied offers/discounts, category-wise product connection, etc. It allowed the client’s partner stores to manage the offers and discounts. Our advanced customization on the plugin simplified the time-consuming tasks for the client’s partner stores.
Pre-applied Offers and Discounts
The client wanted donors to redeem points or access offers/discounts on their website. It would add a layer of security to the personalized offers the client provides to donors using their payment gateway. The donor can log in to the client’s website, view relevant products, offers, and discounts, and click on them to navigate to a unique link.
The donor can not find the customized offers and discounts on the partnering stores if they directly visit the sites. Moreover, accessing the offers/discounts from the client’s website also enables the donor/customer to choose their desired brand, product, etc., from all the active offers/discounts provided by the client.
After the donor/customer clicks on the link of the offers/discounts, they can go to the partnering store. Now, here is the neat part. The offer or deal is pre-applied to the relevant products. It means the user can skip manually feeding in lengthy discount codes. It significantly enhances user experience and makes shopping more seamless.
Key-activated WooCommerce Plugin
As always, Virtina prioritized security for the WooCommerce plugin customization project. Our client’s primary concern was to ensure that no unauthorized personnel could access the capabilities of the customized WooCommerce plugin. We confirmed that the customized plugin is safe from unauthorized access with a key-activated setup.
Even if a WooCommerce store owner can access the custom plugin file, they can not install and activate it without the security keys. We provide the keys to the client’s partner stores after both parties reach an official agreement. The key-activated WooCommerce plugin ensures the client’s plugin remains secure and exclusive.
Advanced Category-wise Connection Feature Via ReactJS
Category-wise product connections are one of the advanced features we implemented on the client’s pre-existing custom WooCommece plugin. Before, the partnering stores had to manually select the items eligible for offers and discounts. This product-by-product selection was a time-consuming task, and WooCommerce store owners did not have the option to select entire product categories.
Our experts implemented an advanced category-wise product connection feature in the WooCommerce plugin. Using this feature, partnering stores can quickly select an entire category of products and make them eligible for special offers and discounts.
This nifty little feature saves significant time for the partnering stores and makes it easier to manage offers and discounts. Our experts implemented the category-wise product connection feature using ReactJS, a high-end development language.
An inexperienced developer would refrain from using high-ed development languages like ReactJS to customize the WooCommerce Plugin. But our experts were able to quickly customize the plugin on the existing system and create a highly responsive WooCommerce plugin.
Resolving Language Translation Issues and Multi-language Optimization
Another significant optimization we ensured on the client’s custom WooCommerce plugin was streamlining its multi-language capability. The client, a leading Fintech solution provider, offers services across different countries. It means the custom WooCommerce plugin had to support the multi-language ability to serve all its customers.
The existing plugin had language translation issues and failed to handle the translation function optimally. Our expert team quickly found the problem with the code and fixed the multi-language function on the client’s WooCommerce plugin. Our QA team further checked that all the functionalities worked seamlessly without glitches or errors.
Custom Pop-up Message for Pre-applied Offers and Discounts
The pre-applied offers and discounts feature significantly enhanced the user experience via the customized WooCommerce plugin. However, some customers may still apply the discount manually. We developed a custom pop-up to prevent this and inform customers that the offer or deal is pre-applied.
Our custom pop-up for the WooCommerce plugin effectively informed the donor or customer about the pre-applied offer or discount. The pop-up would appear when the user clicks on the offer or product on the client’s website and navigate to the partnering store. It avoided unnecessary confusion and streamlined the user experience.
