Proud to announce the launch of my first e-commerce endeavour! Euphoria Salon and Spa in Airdrie now has an online store where you can buy service packages and gift cards.

Euphoria just wanted an option for their clients to send Christmas (or birthday or Valentine's or anniversary, etc) gifts to their loved ones and do so online. Euphoria, however, wanted something low maintenance.

The end result is a very simple and clean look that integrates Stripe as a payment method. Stripe is similar to Paypal but has the added bonus of keeping customers on your site (versus redirecting them to PayPal) and makes paying with a credit card more intuitive and simple (versus PayPal, which seemingly tries to push you into signing up for a PayPal account).

The store requires no inventory management and all payments, refunds, and customer tracking is done through the Stripe dashboard, so it is easy to use and requires minimal setup.

The storefront also comes with a SSL certificate to ensure secure payments, an automated receipt system, and integrates pretty seamlessly with the look and feel of the rest of the site.

I'm happy to be able to offer e-commerce solutions as part of my services. If you need to get your services online to keep up with competitors, this is an example of how you can do something fairly quickly, fairly easily, and quite affordably. Every site is going to look different, of course, and each store will have it's own needs, so give me a shout if you want to get a free quote for your own online store.

Euphoria was the first site I ever did so it is always nice to see it evolve into it's various iterations over the years. If you need a quick gift idea, have a look at Euphoria Salon and check out the online store!

Until next time!
