PrintNow faced a significant challenge with their WordPress plugin, which integrates stores built on WordPress and WooCommerce with the PrintNow platform. The issue centered around a bug in the pricing calculator, disrupting the workflow and hampering the user experience.

The objectives were:

    • Resolve the issue where users lost the calculator fields they had entered when they returned to the WordPress site after using the PrintNow platform.


Workflow Enhancement:

    • Improve the workflow to ensure a seamless user experience.


Theme Compatibility:

  • Build compatibility with a specific WordPress theme for one of PrintNow’s clients.


Codup’s team addressed these challenges with strategic solutions, including:

Local Storage Utilization:

    • Saved the selected values in the browser’s local storage.
    • Displayed the values once the user returned from the PrintNow platform, ensuring data retention and a seamless experience.


Shortcode Development:

  • Built a shortcode to ensure compatibility with a specific WordPress theme.
  • Enabled the client to display the pricing calculator seamlessly within their theme.


The refined plugin and workflow enhancements led to significant improvements:

Enhanced User Experience:

    • The bug fix ensured that users no longer lost their entered data, leading to a smoother and more intuitive experience.


Optimized Workflow:

    • The seamless transition between the PrintNow platform and WordPress site enhanced the overall workflow.
