A U.S. casual clothing and footwear superstore engaged Elegant MicroWeb to help them design their website using the Volusion eCommerce framework. The client wished to provide its customers with an intuitive, secured, hassle-free online shopping experience in which to browse and shop for apparel, clothing accessories, swimwear and footwear.
The challenge was to effectively address all integration, development and customization requirements within the Volusion framework and provide a third party tax calculation tool and all required integration. This was, perhaps, the first project of its kind world-wide that would incorporate all these unique, detailed requirements into one Volusion eCommerce solution. The Elegant MicroWeb team developed product related APIs to import products for add/update/delete functionality, and to export orders. The team also designed a complex XML integration of the Volusion framework for product management, product categories and product options, and product fulfillment, as well as integrating Pro-Mail and Carhartt and a third-party tax calculation tool to compute taxes based on state, category and products.
