Client is a dedicated on-line UK based retailer of over 2000 skincare and hair care products. They aim to provide one stop shop for all health and beauty needs to their clients.

Client Pain Area

The client had their products being sold in local shops. They understand that not everybody has the time or patience to shop in the High Street or their local shop, therefore they required an online product catalogue with detailed information and up to date services to make online buying experience easy, safe and secure.

Business Objectives

The main objective of the client was to design and develop a new website for selling niche health and beauty products which includes Skin Care Products, Hair Care Products, Beauty Products, Healthy Living Products, Mother & Baby Products, Fine Fragrances, Personal Care Products and Health Essential Products. All work is required to be done on Magento Open source Version 1.3.x with English language and GBP Currency only.

The client wants to make a user friendly website so that users can stay longer time on website and purchase something. They wanted to integrate different payment gateway and methods through secure environment which make customers confident for placing orders on website. This website has been secured through COMODO SSL-256 Bits SSL. Also they wanted such a website that client can manage their business effectively and provide better service to client and deliver the highest quality Health & Beauty products at the lowest possible prices directly to customer in the quickest time possible.

The Solution

Silver Touch has proposed to develop this website in Magento Open Source Code Base. The proposed solution will allow the client to manage the catalog, categories, products, orders, product reviews & rating, newsletters, reports, and customers within single administration panel of the Magento. Client will be able to manage the products with categories or sub categories. Client will be able to manage CMS-informative pages with the Metadata (Title, Keyword and Description & URL). There will also be integration with the SagePay Payment Gateway for handling the e-transaction. Shipping will be handled through fixed shipping options. Customers can have free delivery for orders above certain value. Client will also be able to manage categories, sub-categories and products for individual brand.
