Owners of Mountain Girl Organics, Paula Aurand-Stephens and her husband Scott make handcrafted olive oil soaps, shea whip body butters, bath fizzies , spa gift sets and more. All their products are made under Colorado blue skies, in small batches with organically sourced raw materials whenever possible.
While the couple has a growing list of retailers who are offering their products, they wanted an e-commerce website to sell directly to consumers. Bevier Created crafted that e-commerce site on the wordpress platform, so that they can change content and product photos whenever they like, using an easy-to-operate browser-based dashboard. In addition to routing payment through paypal, the site also calculates U.S. postal charges, based on the weight of the products in the order, and adds this amount to the total. A special plug in used on the site, enables them to run specials and sales, including discount codes that they promote on their facebook page that saves clients on shipping.
When they log into their dashboard, the first thing they see are pending orders, so they know instantly what needs to be shipped. The home page design features a series of sliders, which draws visitors further into the site, with links to the entire product catalog, as well as more individual product lines.
