Online shopping with Xarxa Consum Solidari made easier

With the software Prestashop, has helped to plan, make and design the new virtual online shop for Xarxa de Consum Solidari.

The social economy network Xarxa de Consum Solidari (Solidarity Consumption Network), who sets out to create alternative models of production and consumption to those that currently exist, is offering online shopping to all their users, thanks to their new virtual shop. The e-commerce project, along with our experience and support, has been created through PrestaShop, which is a free software that allows the creation, management and implementation of virtual shops. 

During the process, we have created the virtual shop using the LAMP (Linux, Apache, MySQL, PHP) platform, on Abcore Cadi. Also, we have worked alongside Xarxa de Consum Solidari on implementing the online shop’s design, along with increasing usability and training for the website administrators.

Durante el proceso, hemos instalado la tienda virtual sobre la capa LAMP (Linux, Apache, MySQL, PHP) de Abcore Cadí, que permite la integración de una tienda virtual sobre la plataforma. También se ha trabajado conjuntamente con la Xarxa de Consum Solidari la implementación del diseño, la mejora de la usabilidad y la formación de los administradores.

Visually, the shop is made up of an Access section for customers, where users can begin their session in the shop. Just below this, there is a shopping trolley icon, where the user can see how many products they have added to their trolley. In order to make purchasing easier on the site, we have also made room for a search bar where users can directly find the product they are looking for, by entering in the name of the product. The same products can also be filtered by price (from highest to lowest and viceversa) and users can see whether a particular product is in stock.

The virtual shop is made up of different categories: seasonal hampers, vegetables and funghi, fruit, drinks, pulses,etc. to name a few. Also, we have created a section in the bottom menu to allow users to be able to control orders, returns and refunds and their addresses and personal information. In this respect, the online shop has an intuitive and easy usability and allows users to order products online which they can they collect directly from the shop itself.
