For Truck Electrics UK & Ireland we used a eCommerce template from Cs-Cart.com. The template is great for what we needed to do for this website. There is an administrative section for the admin to update products, news etc.. very easily. It helps with people who have very little web design knowledge. There is also a section for registered user and public users also. User can purchase items as a guest user or a registered user. Guest users just have to give their email address and check out as usual. There is a simple search option to search the product you are looking for.
In the blog section there are different options, there are video tutorials on how to do things that may have to do with what users purchase, example applying Conspicuity Tape as well as other videos. There is a new section which user of the website can keep up to date with the website, products and news in general for example truck-electrics.com has become mobile and tablet friends so users can purchase on the go. The next section is the new products so users can be kept up to date with the latest products offered by the website.
The last section is the competitions section. This gives users the opportunity to win free stuff from the website. There’s also the chance to get Facebook and Twitter users involved with these competitions driving viewers to the website. From the sections of the blog the visitors to the page has doubled.
