Jigoshop Showcase #38 Magic Gloves
There are a number of ways to stand out when you’re competing in an online global marketplace. With Jigoshop making store setup and management easy, you have the time to focus on design, promotion, and in the case of the showcase this week, personality.
Magic Gloves was set up by Sean Gerrie as a quick eCommerces site which sells premium one-size -fits-all winter gloves and cool accessories.We asked him what led to using Jigoshop as the basis of his new business:
After lots of research a while back, it was the clear number one choice – clean, feature rich, great support and extensions, stunning themes, the ideal fit for purpose and more!
MagicGloves uses the responsive MayaShop theme for Jigoshop. Sean is full of praise for the theme, and also shared his tips for the extensions he finds particularly useful:
- Jigoshop Quickbooks Integration ‘fills the boring admin bits in seamlessly to help accounts and orders are all, well, in good order!’
- Campaign Monitor ‘is a breezes to use and saves mailing list integration time’.
- Product Enquiry Form and Product Add-Ons Premium ‘gives me even more power and options on a product level’
- Up-sells & Cross-sells ‘a great plugin that help target other related products appropriately and at the right place and time’
What Sean has created is a great site, which is packed full of personality, humour and great little touches throughout, which really drive home that this is a quirky and fun business. He’s already running a variety of special discounts, big competitions and more to raise awareness.
As a developer with a degree in computing, Sean hasn’t found he needed Premium Support, but has benefitted from browsing the Knowledgebase and Community forums. He says ‘I found it really helpful for little hints and tips, and support tidbits’.
We couldn’t ask for a much better response when we enquired if he was pleased with his decision to use Jigoshop:
Overall it’s a joy to use. As a coder and having a First Class BSc (Hons) Internet Computing degree and background in development, I can vouch from a design & development perspective it ticks all the boxes.
Having used other CMS’s and platforms, I always opt for Jigoshop as it’s a premium product that so easily adaptable, forever evolving, for great userbases and supportbases.
Overall Jigoshop empowers you to utilise the world’s best CMS WordPress professionally, and is without a doubt the best e-commerce platform and solution in my humble opinion.
