They are all about promoting and supporting South Australian companies.


Built on CS-Cart

Shop Local SA is looking for a platform to establish its marketplace.

Cs-Cart comes with a variety of eCommerce capabilities out of the box features. It is a lightweight solution out of the box with the option to add modules as needed, allowing you to optimize for performance much more easily than platforms.

One of the most significant advantages of Cs-Cart is its simple and straightforward admin panel.


How Did Shop Local SA find the solution With Webkul?

Mr. Peter Freeman Solutions Architect, E-Commerce Platform wants to permit its merchants to offer accurate rates if they prefer to mark up the shipping price to cover their costs.

Webkul CS-Cart Sendle Shipping Method Allows retailers to deliver items to customers’ addresses via the Sendle shipping service.

Sendle shipping for CS-Cart connects CS-Cart to Sendle APIs for quotation, order submission, and receipt of shipment tracking information.

According to the screenshot below, the user can view the Sendle Shipping Method and its shipping cost on the front-end checkout page.


CS-Cart Shopify Connector

Shop Local SA had an additional demand to sync Shopify products & orders, and ship orders to their CS-Cart store after the success of the initial implementation of the CS-Cart Sendle shipping method.

However, they were looking for a solution to get facilitated with the same.

Eventually, Webkul again came into the picture to provide them with another outstanding solution CS-Cart Shopify Connector.

They had some difficulties after acquiring this connector in the import of complex products. They opened a ticket about the problem. Webkul swiftly resolved their issue by extending CS-Cart to allow the import of complex products.
