In the summer of 2007 Carl May was looking for someone to build an ecommerce store for his well-established and successful Trail Equipment company. It had to be user friendly, easy for his staff to administer on-site, and it had to be able to handle thousands of products. In February 2008 we launched the OSCommerce driven site and it’s been up and running ever since.
We left the original html pages at the root level of this site as they’ve continued to rank well in search results for more than a decade. The store (catalog) has a secure back-end for customer accounts while the checkout process utilizes the PayPal API for added security and limited liability. The site also successfully offers multiple shipping options through the API’s of the USPS, UPS, and FedEx.
I produced all the graphics on the site and installed over 900 product listings prior to launch. The staff at May’s Trail Equipment has since added, deleted or updated product listings entirely on their own, as needed.
