E-commerce sites

From our earliest creation to some of our latest creations, here's just some of the e-commerce packages we've offered clients over the years.

In the early days it was Java scripting and Perl that powered shopping carts and we were one of the first to put an Australian business on-line with secure credit card processing and inventory tracking.

But things in the web world change quickly and when on-line shopping became the new 'norm' on-line shopping also changed.

A high budget business with megabucks to throw at their on-line presence could afford to have in house programmers in dark rooms and tin foil hats writing lines of code to make specific shopping systems.

But for the rest of the world shopping carts that were affordable, easy to use and functional became a thing of need.

Smarty and PHP took over from Java scripting and Perl. Full secure servers and automatic payment systems took over from simple and secure transactions.

At Krafty Presentations & Graphics we followed those trends and technologies closely which allowed us to pick and chose the best solutions out there and tailor them to our clients needs.

Your business might not have the budget of Amazon, but it doesn't need to!

So whether you have one item, or ten thousand items, if you want to sell them on-line contact us and we can show you how!

Summer Spirit Pool Shop

Our first ever e-commerce website created for Summer Spirit Pool Shop in 2000.

Created using an animated water background, Java, Javascript and Pearl this website was written from scratch specifically for the client.

The website included more than 500 listed items, each with descriptions, manuals and multiple images, as well as an encrypted credit card capable checkout system.

Also incorporated into the website were 87 "How To" guides covering every aspect of caring for your swimming pool.

At the time this site was the largest Australian pool related site on-line, one of the largest e-commerce sites in Australia and it had a subscriber list of over 1700 people.

Krafty Farm Assistant

Krafty Farm Assistant didn't sell products, there wasn't a farm shop in the back blocks offering farmers cheap but reliable farm equipment, although perhaps there should have been!.

But it was still an on-line store of sorts.

Much of the backend was written in similar code to today's shopping carts, secure credit card payments were accepted and we sold a product.

This e-commerce site shows that trading on-line isn't about the number of products you sell, it's about what you offer your clients.

Shop24Hour Online

Created in 2002 using the same Java/Pearl back bone as Summer Spirit Pool Shop and Parklea Pets, Shop24Hour was an example of e-commerce done on a budget.

The team at Shop24Hour came to Krafty Presentations & Graphics asking for something plain and simple to showcase their range of imported products.

Despite being built to a budget this website still contained over 300 items, individual descriptions and a secure checkout.

There may have been nothing fancy about the Shop24Hour e-commerce site but at less than a tenth of what many large design agencies charge for an e-commerce site in todays market it was effective and it worked.

Parklea Pets On-line Store

Following in the steps of Summer Spirit Pool Shop Parklea Pets contracted Krafty Presentations & Graphics to design their e-commerce store in 2001.

Built around the same Java and Pearl based shopping system but not as large the on-line Pet store listed just over 400 items.

There was handy hints and tips for looking after a wide variety of pets, a built in gifting system and animated images.

This site while on a smaller scale than our first e-commerce site was one of the first online pet stores in the country.

Traralgon Cyber Shack

Traralgon Cyber Shack e-commerce website v1.0 was first created in 2005 and went live in 2006.

Krafty Presentations & Graphics designed the Traralgon Cyber Shack on-line store with the customer in mind.

Easy to navigate menus, detailed images, descriptive text for each item and single page checkout system all combined to make the user experience a good one.

Traralgon Cyber Shack e-commerce store and its backend was the base we used to help design many other e-commerce stores make an affordable impression on the Internet world.

Snap Crackle & Pop

Snap Crackle & Pop called upon Krafty Presentations & Graphics in 2007 after becoming frustrated with their previous web design company who promised the world but only delivered invoices.

The e-commerce world had changed dramatically since our first attack in 2000 and by the time we were ready to begin work on the Snap Crackle & Pop web store programming had also changed.

Utilising PHP and Smarty forms we began our largest creation ever, a 2800+ item store selling jigsaws, board games and models.

Pictured to the right is Snap Crackle & Pop v2.0 a revamped and cut back site concentrating only on jigsaws. There was still in excess of 1700 items listed on the site however with the revamp the focus had just moved slightly and it stayed that way until the company ceased trading in 2011.

Embroodles On-line Store

In 2008 Krafty Presentations & Graphics went global as word of our work spread all the way to Canada.

The Embroodles on-line webstore was a pre-made shopping system mostly built when we moved in and offering only digital downloads.

Our big focus on this site was installing scripts, assisting with the electronic download system and major SEO work.

Sun And Spirit Online Store

In 2008 Sun and Snow contracted Krafty Presentations &smp; Graphics to help them control the back end of their e-commerce store.

When Krafty moved in the heavy equipment the site was operational so the design you see (other than a few cosmetic items) is not from our studios.

With Sun and Snow webstore using a pre-made shopping cart system Krafty's time was spent installing scripts to make the site run better and modifying templates to make the customer experience a better one.
