The Cheese Society
The Cheese Society is a family-run cheesemonger based in Lincoln. They asked us to design and build their new e-commerce website and in the process, move their back end from the Magento platform to WooCommerce.
After we’d imported all the product, content and customer data from Magento to WooCommerce, we set about rebuilding the back end on the new platform. During the build we faced and overcame many technical challenges. WooCommerce is a great off-the-shelf e-commerce platform, but for the customisation TCS were looking for, it was far too rigid.
Delivery with DPD
Alongside the ecommerce platform switch, TCS also changed delivery couriers from APC to DPD. We wrote our own Wordpress delivery plugin and integrated it into the DPD API so their system could handle the complexities of the subscription delivery model and the differing weight options coming from the website.
