The following examples illustrate some of our capabilities.
Modern Tea with Company:
This a a new E-commerce company in New York City that sells loose leaf tea products and catered tea parties. The owners initially wanted a static site with PayPal as the method of users buying the products or tea parties. However, after the web site was designed, they decided that they wanted a full E-commerce site. So the E-commerce site needed to be integrated into the existing design. As a result, the E-commerce portion of the web site is perfectly integrated into the site. The company has since gone out of business due to personal reasons and the fact that the site was generating more business then they could handle on a part-time basis. At this time, the e-commerce section is non-operational.
