South London based not-for-profit vegbox delivery company.
I approached Sam from South London based vegbox delivery company Sutton Community Farm via twitter in 2012 after seeing a tweet from the farm asking to hear from web developers regarding the redevelopment of their existing website.
His priority was to create a new website that would allow customers to manage their orders and pay online using a recurring order system, as well as streamlining the data downloads to make it easier to prepare delivery information for the veg box delivery drivers, packing labels, etc.
I suggested utilising the power of WordPress for the core of the farm’s new website to keep costs down, enabling us to focus our time on the customer management and ordering side of things. Whilst initially the plan was to adapt an existing WordPress e-commerce add-on to the job of managing the recurring veg box orders, it soon became apparent that it was going to be simpler to develop a bespoke WordPress plugin for the job.
The Sutton Community Farm website went live in May of 2013 and handled over 1000 regular customers before being redeveloped in early 2016.
