Screenlink offer audio visual, data and security design and installation services to residential and
commercial customers. OSX delivered a new website, web shop and eBay template.
Along with a revamp to their website design, Screenlink also wanted to branch out into selling the products
that their engineers use on installs, online. Two approaches have been taken here; both a conventional online
store and an eBay shop. Screenlink hope to take advantage of the existing eBay user base while working on
generating traffic for their primary store.
For the main shop, OSX customised an existing open source
e-commerce solution, negating the costs involved with a 100% bespoke system of the same feature set. To
improve upon the standard shop designs that eBay provide, and stand out from the crowd, OSX took their existing
shop layout and made a few modifications to make it compatible with the restraints imposed by eBay.
- Catalogue Mgmt.
- A comprehensive administration area is available to manage the catalogue's categories and products.
- Payments taken with the integration of PayPal. Customers can make purchases with their credit or debit cards
without the requirement for a PayPal account.
- Postage Calculation
- Postage costs can be automatically calculated based on a number of variables, such as the combined weight
of the basket, the customers postcode, the selected service, or just a flat rate depending on the product.
- Numerous reports are available, displaying information such as total sales within a selected period, the
most viewed products as well as the most sold products, helping to inform future marketing campaigns.
- A custom tool was written to allow products to be created once on the web shop and then be automatically
imported into eBay, bypassing the necessity to manually create listings.
With consistency in mind, the same design employed on both the web shop and the eBay shop was used to refresh
the Screenlink website, used to give an overview of the services that they provide to both their residential and
commercial customers in the surrounding areas. OSX implemented a content management system behind the website,
allowing Screenlink to create and update their own pages.
