    Cotswold Bowls Centre

    E-commerce online shop

    Cotswold Bowls Centre required a new online shop to sell their lawn bowls products. The website needed to be clean and simple to manage, allowing products to be updated easily.

    Since the launch of the website, Cotswold Bowls Centre has successfully processed regular sales. They have been able to adjust pricing and change product details as required.

    The site is built on a responsive template that works for mobile and desktop devices. We adjusted CSS styles to improve the overall look and feel of the website from desktop, tablet and smartphone devices. There is a meta tag manager in the site for all products and pages within the website. This has helped set all meta details for the site, build a sitemap and submitted it to Google. The site has seen progressive organic growth within the Google search engine.

    Built on the latest Joomla CMS with VirtueMart shopping cart on a gantry template, with a one-page checkout and PayPal payment gateway, the shop allows customers to choose, checkout, and monitor their orders progress. An SSL certificate on the server protects customer security. Using Wicko Design’s website maintenance servicethe site receives regular site audits, admin protection and full site backup to another server, ensuring all details are protected.
