About The Project
Charmouth Fossils is ran by a husband and wife team who have been discovering, collecting and selling stunning fossils for over 25 years.
A client of ours for many years, we approached Charmouth Fossils in late 2022 with the prospect of moving over to Shopify to modernise their online store. After a brief meeting covering the benefits of this move and our ideas, the client agreed to the project.
Our Design Process
Having developed their online store on Cs Cart several years ago, much of what we required for the project was already in-hand. Our technical team began by exporting their product database from Cs Cart into Excel in preparation for the Shopify import. Once imported, our design team began working on a unique theme.
We created a clean, easy to navigate layout for the store that was not too dissimilar to their previous design; introducing subtle improvements and new features that modernised the overall design. Inventory tracking was added to synchronise the online and physical stores’ stock, and additional collections were added to give customers a taste of what’s new.
Project Completion & Launch
After the design and development work was completed we shared a preview link with the client for their approval and agreed a launch date. Prior to launch, we carried out one last product and inventory import.
Once we handed over control of the store to the client we assisted with Shopify Payments setup and briefed them on some of the key differences between their old software and Shopify. As the client’s often out discovering new fossils, we continue to assist them closely with our eCommerce management service.
