Online Shopping Websites Portfolio

GHL Group Ltd

GHL is one of the largest suppliers of temporary fencing and ancillary products in New Zealand. In 2015, they took the brave decision to rebrand and wanted a new website to promote their new identity. Since then, the website has grown with their business, with the latest upgrade being a full e-commerce store, featuring a personalised quote system. GHL make full use of the Projects and Blog functions to showcase their scale and expertise, comment on the market and announce new products. All new projects and blogs are shared on their Facebook page.

Customised E-Commerce and Personalised Quote System

This function, custom coded by Designer Websites, was the first to market for their sector in New Zealand. It calculates the shipping costs, taking into account of factors such as discounts & subsidies, fuel price adjustments, minimum charges and pallet type. As the customer progresses through the shopping cart, the website determines the most appropriate way to ship the goods, i.e. either by courier, by freight company or by GHL, and calculates the correct shipping cost, taking account of both the weight and volume of the goods.  The system also allows customers outside of Auckland to request a personalised quote for delivery directly to their site.
