User interface Responsive design eCommerce

The proposal was to design and create a new Magento 2 eCommerce website for Party Comet. 

We initially shortlisted a handful of Magento themes, from which one was chosen that best matched the brand and contained the most suitable features.

The Magento 2 platform is one of the leading enterprise-level e-commerce systems and provides a very high level of expandability at a relatively low cost. The Party Comet website required a few additional features beyond what is included in Magento out of the box:

Inventory/Warehouse Management 

Magento includes robust stock management, however, it does not accommodate for physical warehouse activities. In order to provide inventory management functionality, the client uses separate off-the-shelf software. This software offers: 

In order to integrate this software within the website, we installed and configured some additional modules within Magento. Now the system exports order details to the warehouse software (installed on-site). The warehouse software in turn provides stock levels to Magento. This works dynamically near real-time, so orders can be quickly processed and dispatched, and stock notifications on the website reflect real-world stock levels.

Royal Mail Postage

We expanded Magento to integrate with Royal Mail’s Click and Drop service. When an order has been confirmed the postage is automatically calculated, and a Royal-Mail shipping label can be printed for attachment to the parcel.

Xero

Xero is an online software solution for managing accounts, invoices and expenses. After installing a third-party extension, Magento now automatically sends invoices for new orders straight to Xero, where they can be processed.

eBay & Amazon

eBay & Amazon integration was achieved by using a third-party extension that links merchant accounts into Magento.

Product data is sent to Amazon & eBay to be listed automatically. Any orders made on Amazon or eBay are automatically imported back into Magento, which will update stock levels and generate invoices.
