When we talk about ecommerce, the appearance of your store is everything for a successful business. The design is the shell, the "shiny foil" or the luxury box of your products. Choosing the right design according to the specifics of the line of products you offer will give you an edge over the competition and will make users spend more time on your site, and the probability of making a purchase is significantly higher.

In this section:

As your partner in building your store and improving the development of your online business, CloudCart offers you the service of creating a professional design. In the following lines, we will explain in particular what we expect from you before we perform the service and what exactly the service includes.

What we expect from you:

Step 1 for the customer: You need to create a product catalog in the store, having the following options:

Option # 1 - Manually create Categories (see help article) and Products (See help article) in your store;

Option # 2 - automatic import with CSV file or XML feed / file;

Option # 3 - synchronization of a database of warehouse programs or ERPs. 

Option # 4 - if you have an old site, you can contact us for our additional migration service and 301 redirects;

Step 2 for the client: You need to fill in our >>> Design Questionnaire <<<, which you will receive after purchasing the service.

We expect you to answer our questions as comprehensively as possible, as our designers will work based on your answers in it. But, if you think it will be more convenient for you, you can also send us a separate document (with photos or a detailed explanation).

If you do not have specific requirements for the design and would like to trust the professionalism and experience of our designers, then this is quite possible, but we will still ask you to share it with us in the questionnaire.

Step 3 for the client: You need to upload your materials to our Google Drive folder. 

Our team will send you a shared folder on Google Drive, where we'd like you to share all the material you want in your store:

  • logo in vector format - if you do not have and want to make it for you (additional fee), please contact us;
  • photos and text for banners to present your business;
  • homepage texts if you want to have;
  • texts for static pages with conditions for shopping: payment and delivery, return and exchange, About us, etc. 
  • videos, certificates, instructions, files and diagrams, customer reviews, etc.;

Here we want to emphasize that our practice is to start the design process after we receive all the necessary materials. We understand that collecting them may take time, but we think the wait is worth it. As experience shows us that when we have all the materials, the design process goes most smoothly, and the customer remains most satisfied with the result.

Step 4 for the client: Ready to work

After completing steps 1, 2, and 3, please write to your key account to let him know that we can move on to the design process. Of course, if you have any questions before, do not hesitate to contact us. 

The minimum information required to start your project - a completed questionnaire, uploaded products and logo for design purposes must be provided by you up to 6 months of paying for the service. 

After this deadline CloudCart considers the project unworkable, the team is not responsible for keeping files as well as communication that has been conducted to date. The value of the service is not refunded or deducted from other services or applications. 

*If a service to migrate products from another platform has been paid, products remain the responsibility of CloudCart. Different conditions and terms apply for this service , and the production period on the part of the contractor (CloudCart) is not considered as inactivity on the part of the customer. 

Step 5: The design process

First of all, we want to clarify that the stores on our platform are made (customized) on a ready-made template with predefined functionalities that cannot be changed by our designers.

These are:

  • Header structure/arrangement (elements cannot be moved on it, nor can icon design be changed)
  • Structure/arrangement of the footer (it is not possible to move the elements on it, to make more columns, as well as to change the design of the icons)
  • In a category page/listing it is not possible to change the structure, ie the position of the filters, and to rearrange the elements
  • In a detailed product page, it is not possible to change the structure, arrangement, icons, and other elements on the page
  • In Contacts, it is not possible to move the elements in it (contact form, card).
  • The Contact form cannot be exported to another page. It can only work on the contacts page.

All these things can be changed only with the intervention of our developers and the implementation of additional modifications. Тhis is а subject to an additional fee.
