WordPress Website Design Brief
Direct Sofa Warehouse (DSW) are a new store opened in Portugal and required an online presence. DSW required all their sofas and beds to be sold online by taking credit/debit card payments, with free delivery within a 30KM radius of their store. The website must be modern, clean and easy to navigate to all their sofas and beds. As the store is based in Portugal, they required the site to be multilingual with English, Portuguese and French.
We advised the the website should be built in WordPress to allow easy updates and to support the eCommerce functionality. We sourced high quality stock images for the homepage which would really pop on load with lots of bright, crisp colours. As DSW wanted to keep the homepage minimal, without a load of content, products and images, we just created a slideshow with call to action button that takes users directly to the sofa shop page or the beds shop page with ease.
We used WooCommerce as their eCommerce platform to allow them to take online orders. With this platform we were able to set the free delivery service to clients within a 30KM radius of the store. The payment gateway we suggested was Stripe, which we implemented into WooCommerce.
As they sell beds and sofas in store, the stock needs updating regularly Also they have new lines from their supplier introduced on a regular basis. This means the website needs constant stock management and new products adding to the website using our website maintenance services and support.
