Scottish Hampers

I created this website along with a lot of the WooCommerce extensions that were needed to make it function the way it does.

Vouch For That
An eCommerce platform selling vouchers to some of the most amazing hotels in the UK. You can have your voucher sent to the recipient via post or email, with a personalized message, and on a fixed date.

I created the core website along with the different parts of the voucher purchase system as part of WooCommerce extensions and also the voucher PDF creation part and the system that tracks the redemptions of the vouchers by the hotels.

Grunting Growler
Grunting Growler is a craft beer shop in Glasgow. The website offers a way for users to purchase beer online either in their canned or bottled version or as a growler and choose a date and time of pick up.

I created the complete site along with the WooCommerce aspect that allows the website to track the draft beers in quantity of "ml," as the website also doubles as a POS system used in the stores.
