Recently we had the pleasure of working with Hilary Colero of Rockpool Kikoy to launch a new website for her range of Rockpool Kikoy Sarongs.

Sarongs Online: sarong.net.au

Sarongs Online: sarong.net.au

The site was designed by the talented Paul Dennis of Paul Dennis Design.

We implemented this site using the WP e-Commerce plugin for WordPress – James put quite a bit of work in to making sure it worked correctly for our WordPress and WordPress MU installations. So we now support two separate eCommerce plugins – QuickShop and WP e-Commerce.

In addition, James developed a new interface to the Australia Post shipping calculator so that during checkout customers are presented with actual shipping costs. The costs are calculated from a base postcode in Australia to any other postcode in Australia, or for international customers, to any country that Australia Post ships to.

Getting these costs requires the weight as well as the dimensions of the product, and Australia Post charges you for either the weight or the volumetric weight, whichever is greater.

The extensions have been contributed to the WP e-Commerce development team, so they should make their way into the core plugin soon.
