    Challenges

    Skye Flowers partnered with Shopify Development Pros for their florist eCommerce design project. For nearly a decade, Skye Katz has captivated hearts and inspired awe with her extraordinary floral designs and installations. Skye Katz wanted to take her floral designs beyond the local boundaries of Toronto downtown and deliver throughout Greater Toronto Area (GTA) and beyond.

    The primary goal was to create a seamless online shopping experience while addressing the logistics of delivering perishable products and remain cost efficient.

    What We Did?

    In response to the distinctive challenges faced by Skye Flowers for their florist eCommerce online store set up, Shopify Development Pros collaborated with them to create a comprehensive and innovative solution.
    Focused on optimizing the local delivery of fresh flowers, this Shopify web design initiative aimed not only to overcome logistical constraints but also to elevate the overall online shopping experience.

    From customized delivery zones to seamless integrations with logistics provider, we designed and developed their custom Shopify florist eCommerce store to ensure Skye Flowers thrives in its market and offers a flourishing experience to its customers throughout GTA.

    Product Page
    The product detail page showcases an array of diverse options for customers to seamlessly acquire their preferred selections. We crafted the page to feature custom size options, allowing users to effortlessly choose the desired size and style for their flower arrangement.
    Acknowledging that some customers may seek swift transactions, we introduced the “Buy Now” option. With this streamlined purchasing feature, customers can proceed directly to checkout, bypassing additional steps for a more expedited experience. And, as anticipated, this feature is very popular on their florist ecommerce store.
    For those desiring a more comprehensive shopping journey, the page retains the traditional “Add to Cart” option. This caters to customers intending to purchase multiple flower arrangements and other merchandise, ensuring a versatile and accommodating shopping experience.
