Sometimes a Magento, Joomla or even a WordPress ecommerce solution will work. In this case we used custom ecommerce web development in order to add the specific features the client wanted. Additionally this site was built many years ago and the off the shelf platforms either didn’t exist yet or didn’t have shopping cart systems. This has never been a problem for us because we have always been custom programmers. We can build any feature into a website that our client may need or want.
We have built online stores with some unique functions. One example was for the sale of perishable products that could only be shipped next day air in a Styrofoam container packed with dry ice. We built into the system some programming code that would check the date and time an order was placed. If an order came in after the shipping deadline Thursday then the site would offer the option to ship Friday for Saturday delivery for an additional fee or ship Monday for Tuesday delivery. What can we do for your business?
