"Because We Don't Produce the Same Website Twice"
Quw'utsun' Cultural & Conference Centre
Duncan, British Columbia
Star Global created the Quw'utsun' Cultural and Conference Centre web that includes photos and textual information about cultural attractions, conference facilities, location and maps, shopping, and food service. On-line forms allow tour groups to book a conference, Mid-day Salmon BBQ, or Coast Salish Feast.
The product catalog is stored in a database from which the online store system generates dynamic navigation and product descriptions. This project contains three separate shops - Knit Shop, Art Gallery, and Gift Shop - each containing specialized display and ordering options. All items support multiple product photos with captions, which link to a larger photo in a pop-up window.
Each shop is able to display different information, and any product can have multiple sizes. Sweaters can be custom ordered by specifying colours, measurements, patterns and style of collar and pocket. Art Gallery pieces include a link to the Artist's biography.
The shops are connected to a shopping cart which incorporates the product details into a single product description. Shipping costs and taxes are calculated based on the customer's geographic location. Purchases are completed in real-time through a credit card gateway provider. The shopping cart is notified upon a successful transaction and receipts are generated for the merchant and customer.
