Spiral Media builds another Award-winning eCommerce Website
Date: 29 Sep 2017
What makes Spiral Media happy is seeing our clients succeed, so we're delighted to have created another award winning website and congratulate Alterego on their success!
The lingerie retailer was nominated in the Hull and East Yorkshire Digital Awards for Best eCommerce Website, up against two other local businesses.
The fantastic result was a big win for Alterego!
The judges commented in particular on the multi shipping, split shipping and Dropship process, something which Spiral Media and Alterego worked closely together on.
Another feature of Magento that also caught the judges’ eye was the ability to send one order to 10 different addresses!
Dropship & Split Shipment Capability
Alterego purely work B2B, supplying high quality lingerie items to retailers, eBay businesses and independent online stores (just to name a few).
Some of the online businesses don’t want to hold stock, so they need Alterego to ship the goods direct to their consumer, but with absolute discretion.
These businesses collect their website orders, then use Alterego to make one bulk order, paying once, but with items shipped to multiple locations.
It was this that the judges loved, as they said it enabled a local business from Hull to tap into a much wider global market.
This particular functionality was rounded off, and extended, by a bespoke Magento Dropship and Split Shipment extension we created.
It not only allows their customers to upload their own branded invoice for Alterego, includeed within the packaged items, but their Magento now gives customers the option of splitting the order when out of stock items are present within the basket – and get charged the correct shipping for each consignment.
The number of ways you can now checkout within Alterego’s website has saved their customers (and Alterego!) quite a bit of time in order management.
So here’s to Alterego, and what is sure to be the first of many wins for this progressive local business.
