CartThrob's getting a makeover. New website coming soon!
This was a new ecommerce store for fashion accessory brand BOING - www.boing-inc.com- selling the brand, the lifestyle and primarily the products. We built the site from scratch as this was a new product, and after experimenting with Store, moved the site to Cartthrob soon after for its richer set of built in features.
Storm Watches is a wonderfully designed site for wonderfully designed and unique watches. In addition to running on CartThrob, Storm Watches also contracted us to create a custom gateway for ANZ eGate Payments.
THE place to buy ExpressionEngine Add-ons is now a CartThrob Convert. This ExpressionEngine site, created by Ryan Masuga, clearly marks itself as “devoted” to ExpressionEngine. So devoted, that it has now expanded its helpful knowledge bank of EE-related tips and tricks by selling EE add-ons using CartThrob. Not only is he selling add-ons using CartThrob, he’s actually selling CartThrob using CartThrob (of course we do that too). Devot-ee is the place to buy ExpressionEngine add-ons, and is recommended by the developers of ExpressionEngine themselves, Ellis Labs!
Southern Coast Distillers is a gathering of 3 blokes who all share a passion for fine Whisky (& rum). Being relatively new to the scene hasn’t stopped them from creating some multi-award winning Whisky. The crunch came when they approached us to build a website to sell their wares, a small budget and a big list - CartThrob to the rescue. We looked at a few others but none had the flexibility, this seemingly simple site , required, in fact I can’t see any e-commerce site NOT powered by CartThrob in our future.
Burn Card Clothing are a new clothing company who make original t-shirts themed on classic, old-school playing cards. The developers didn’t want to use a generic out of the box shopping cart as they too often end up looking the same. According to Russ at Burn Card Clothing with CartThrob; “It was as easy as finding the elements we wanted to use and dropping them into our EE templates. If we did get stuck, the support was always right there.”
This site looks so great it’s hard to remember that they’re actually selling something when you first take a look. Originally developer Anthony Collini tried creating this website on different ecommerce software, but “the problem was that the other solutions feel too much like a third party shopping cart without the native EE functionality that we’re all used to, and therefore are limited to what they can accomplish out of the box… I switched over the cart in a day and was able to easily implement the features I couldn’t in other shopping carts.”
The Museum of Old and New Art (MONA) is an art museum located within the Moorilla winery on the Berriedale peninsula in Hobart, Tasmania, Australia. It is the largest privately funded museum in the southern hemisphere. The museum presents antiquities, modern and contemporary art from the David Walsh collection.
MONA required a site that could highlight pertinent information
King of Nothing is an upcoming clothing label that helps artists reach a broader audience by turning their designs into wearable artworks. KON wanted a clean simple design that would highlight the products and their details, but was also engaging and fun to use. Devloper Jason Varga had this to say: “CartThrob made the development process an absolute breeze. Unlike other solutions, it allowed us to have the cart exactly the way we wanted.”
From Liam Crean: “The second and largest project we’ve used CartThrob for. The brief seemed simple - create a fully featured E-shop for our customers. The requirements were a little more tricky. With a large range of products, product options, categories, product sets, sale options, colours, images and sizes + numerous ways to display content + a host of EE add-ons… the project soon snowballed into a monster of yeti-esque proportions.”
Description: Franklin Arts creates contemporary wall art for homes, offices, and commercial spaces. Artworks are customized to fit clients’ taste and space perfectly. CartThrob provided the flexibility necessary to present the numerous artwork options to potential buyers, and the ease with which it integrated with the rest of ExpressionEngine, and by extension, the rest of the site, saved me a lot of pressure and stress. I’ve worked with other shopping cart solutions, and even built a few myself, and CartThrob is by far the best one I’ve used.
