Countshop Daily Deal
Countshop.com is an online retailer of fine watches with an international client base. The owners of Countshop contacted us at Halfslide Design about creating a daily deal store to complement their current e-commerce website. Halfslide recently completed the work on the site and is happy to announce a successful launch.
The site is built with a goal of being easily reproduced in the various languages of the countries that Countshop seeks to market to. Halfslide Design built the site fully internationalized so that it is easy for the client to swap out language files for customers in Sweden, Japan, Brazil, etc… The site also features:
- Configurable currencies to allow each site to sell products in the native currency of its targeted market. For example, the Swedish Countshop site will list all products in the Swedish Krona (Sweden has not yet adopted the Euro).
- Configurable product options: the client can fully configure how the products are listed such as when each daily deal ends, how many pictures to show on each product, how many features, etc…
- Each product can feature links to comparable prices at other competitors in order to showcase the savings that Countshop provides over its customers.
- The site features a mini-CMS that allows the client to add/remove/update any pages on the site such as the About Us, FAQ, Contact us pages. The CMS features a mini-WYSIWYG editor to allow the client to have full-control over how the page is designed.
- Integration with Google Checkout, Paypal Website Payments Standard, and Paypal Website Payments Pro. Each of these integrations can be turned off at any time.
- The ability to add discount coupons that provide various configurations of discounts such as a fixed price, percentage of order cost, free shipping, etc… Each coupon can be controlled to expire at either a future date, or after a certain number of uses.
- A customizable schedule that allows the client to setup an unlimited number of future deals and configure how long each deal lasts.
- A listing of the previous five deals featured on the site to give new visitors an idea of what products have been recently available.
