The client approached us with a requirement of developing an online apparel store on Magento platform. The website was expected to allow the users to view & buy the listed products, by filtering them through different categories.
Dingole is a member-only destination that offers the very best of Carribean fashion to people who love the Caribbean lifestyle and chic. To start with, we have undertaken the following tasks to give the website it's required stature:
We have integrated the provided theme into the website.
Developed custom modules like the “Boutique”, “Splash”, “Scene”, “What's Hot / Live Feed” apart from the default catalog, customer and order management of the eCommerce.
Developed the functionality to enable the admin to create a designer/boutique admin account and pass on the login credentials to the corresponding designer/boutique admin. The admin will insert products on behalf of designer for the respective boutique. Boutique admin can login into their account and publicize their designs and work by uploading their portfolios – we have used third party gallery extensions and customized the same as per the requirement.
There is a “Location Master” custom module using which the admin of the site can associate boutiques to different countries/locations and customers at the front end can filter out the boutiques based on their preferences of location.
Scene (user generated feed) – is a global social media space for customers of the website. Customers can upload images – texts and like them follow them. FB comments integration has been also implemented.
User can also filter the scenes using the tag cloud feature.
Live Feed / What's Hot section is a space which lists all activities by users on the website. It provides customers a flavor of what is currently hot on the website.
Apart from the above, we have implemented many other features such as the multilingual and multi-currency, refer a friend, one step checkout, Banner management, Schedulers for sales/deals and much more.
