Danish Handcraft Update
An update for a previous client
The old Danish Handcraft Guild site was starting to out grow itself from the original simple eCommerce site it was. It was now required to take payments and manage orders.
I added the payment functionality using PayPal which went rather smoothly transitioning from the sandbox API to live transactions smartly using XDT transforms when deploying the site between the staging and live application instances.
It seemed like a good time to port the site to use Ketchup, it’s first real application in the real world and it helped pull out a few obvious bugs and missing features. Overall it greatly reduced the amount of time it took me to take the site from inception to live down to only 4 weeks of spare time working.
