Seacoast Bank, a renowned financial institution, required two distinct websites to cater to their B2B and B2C clientele. The bank aimed to offer a streamlined online shopping experience for authorized buyers and the general public while ensuring enhanced security and user engagement.
The objectives included:
- Develop a secure and efficient platform for authorized buyers to purchase products in bulk.
- Create a user-friendly online store for the general public, ensuring a seamless shopping experience.
- Implement robust security features to protect sensitive data and transactions.
Codup meticulously crafted two separate WordPress websites, each tailored to meet the specific needs of B2B and B2C users.
The solutions included:
Custom WordPress Setup:
- Utilized the Sway theme and designed the website with default features, ensuring aesthetic appeal and functionality.
- Implemented plugins like WooCommerce, B2BWoo, Contact Form 7, Cost of Goods, Min/Max Quantities, and Bulk Generate Coupons.
User Access Control:
- Created two types of users, logged-in users with order placement access, and non-logged-in users with restricted access.
- Implemented an additional security layer requiring a key for website access, provided off-site by the bank’s admin.
- Designed a comprehensive homepage with navigation to product categories, FAQs, contact us, and manage budgets (for logged-in users).
- Developed detailed product pages and category pages for an enhanced user experience.
Payment Gateway Integration:
- Integrated Stripe for payment processing, disabling cash on delivery and check payments as per client requirements.
- Restricted the bank’s employees from shopping on the site by identifying and blocking specific 4-digit numbers associated with bank-issued cards.
- Retained many features from the B2B site, ensuring consistency while catering to the distinct needs of B2C customers.
The development of the B2B and B2C websites marked a significant enhancement in Seacoast Bank’s online presence:
- The B2B site’s additional security layer ensured that only authorized buyers could access and place orders on the platform.
Streamlined Shopping Experience:
- Both websites offered intuitive navigation and user-friendly interfaces, promoting a seamless shopping experience for B2B and B2C customers.
Payment Processing Efficiency:
- The integration of Stripe on the B2C site ensured secure and efficient payment processing.
With Codup’s tailored solutions, Seacoast Bank successfully expanded its online presence, offering secure and user-friendly platforms for both authorized buyers and the general public.
