Green Shopping

Green Shopping is the sister site of Permaculture.co.uk, and is provided by Permaculture Magazine to sell their own publications, along with a wide range of other green books and products.

Unlike the other sites that I work on, which all use the Drupal content management system (CMS), this one uses a system called Magento, developed specifically for on line stores.

I began helping Permaculture Magazine with this site in January 2014, when I also took on the maintenance of permaculture.co.uk. Achievements with the site have included a major upgrade to Magento version 1.9, and the installation of the Paypal Express payment gateway, which has helped improve conversion rates, and increase sales. In addition to this, I developed a 'flexible template system', in order to give staff more a wider range of creative options whilst developing the monthly e-bulletin.
