The client approached us with a requirement where he wanted us to develop a Magento shopping cart package for his website. Custom designing and integrating few third party extensions were also included in the task list.
Client has a website that deals in designer t-shirts. He wanted to host a competition where the participants can upload their designs and get them printed on their t-shirts. The best design gets awarded as well. Our task was to develop the “Design Contest” module, integrate the custom design into the shopping cart and to compile few third party integrations.
Let's list out the tasks here more elaborately:
- To start with, we have set up a Magento community edition and integrated the theme in to it. Following that we have also implemented various payment systems i.e. Credit card, PayPal, prepayment, klarna.com and sofortüberweisung.
- Later, we have started working on the "Design Module", where we have provided the details about uploading designs. Users need to register with the site, ad upload their design. These designs need to be created offline; the module doesn't allow users to design them online. However, the website offers some Photoshop templates to be downloaded for reference, if needed.
- The admin of the site can review/accept/decline submissions; while he can also convert the winning design as a product.
Normal users can like or dislike any deign and can also post a comment on them. They can also search products by various parameters including categories, pre-defined price range, gender, size, color and brands.
