The WPCandy Quarterly […] is WPCandy’s print magazine for WordPress enthusiasts. The Quarterly will be published four times yearly (hence the name) and be filled to the brim with exclusive articles from minds throughout the WordPress community.
I’m pleased to say that the WP Candy Shoppe is powered by the WP e-Commerce Plugin. It is a simple and effective implementation of e-Commerce, the buyer can choose from two different subscription models, either a yearly subscription or one publication at a time, and of course whatever the case may be, the website calculates the shipping costs based on the order and the location of the buyer and then bills the buyer accordingly.
The design tweaks really highlight the Cart and Contact options to reassure potential purchasers, and there’s no way you can miss the price and purchase options for each product if you want to buy straight away. Plus the category page really shows how extensive the range is to highlight the different designs and colours to let you pick the product which matches your outfit or catches your eye, and the same is true of the dresses page.
Dan provided a short summary of how Jigoshop elements were used and what makes this site a winner in their books.
The homepage […] combines a clean and simple navigation and product display with enough character from the period to reinforce that the people behind the company know their stuff. (Emma, husband Nick and designer Raphael) have put time and effort into ensuring that the individual product pages utilise several images of each product, a unique description […], and make good use of related products. – Dan Thornton, Jigowatt
