OUR SOLUTION

The whole web development process was divided into 3 main stages:

STAGE 1. DEVELOPMENT OF AN E-STORE 

The web application itself is based on a popular library for e-commerce applications - SpreeCommerce. The application has all typical e-commerce functions available both on back and front offices, including: 

• Registration 

• Basket 

• Search 

• Check out process 

• Orders management 

• Customer service 

• Product management 

• Payment systems integration

As we used Spree, most of these functions were available out-of-box, and their development didn't take much time and we were able to focus on the development of the service unique functionality (UX, custom interface, etc).

STAGE 2. INTEGRATION OF THE E-STORE WITH WECHAT COMMUNICATION SERVICE 

WeChat allows integrating all the functionality of online stores into the service. We used WeChat API to Join the e-commerce functions with the service's ones. 

In addition, the platform and its interface are adapted to the Asian market and to the peculiarities of web solutions in Asia. 

STAGE 3. QUALITY ASSURANCE 

Our QA specialist tested all the functionality and its compatibility with other systems.
