Design was really important to our client. He creates his own art and wanted a website that reflected his art, allowed him to sell and allowed other similarly minded artists to have stores on his site.
With this in mind all art work was completed by the client and we placed it on the webpage as he wanted it. We made the site responsive so that it works as well on a cell phone, tablet, laptop or PC.
The are 4 levels of access to the site.
Browsers can browser the site, view the art available in the various stores and search for art by category and tags.
Purchasers must be registered and they have the same functioality as Browsers but can also purchase art work and exchange messages with the Store Owners. Purchasers can also register to be Store Owners, but need to be confirmed by Administrators.
Store Owners can load images of their products, write RichText descriptions, set the quantities available, the prices and cost of postage by region.
Administrators have full access. The can have a store, purchase products, browse the site but they can also set and add regions, categories and tags and set the commission of each sale taken by the site. We use the standard Django Administration backend to provide quick and functional administration functionality.
The Stripe Payment Gateway is used for all financial transactions providing a secure environment for everyone involved. This also ensures the site is PCI compliant as no credit or debit card details are stored by the site or on the site's database.
