Business challenge

Russian and CIS citizens had no possibility to buy high-quality goods from European online shops for quite a while. What is more, internet-resources like eBay don’t deliver goods to all the CIS countries. Initially, the company was founded as a purchasing agent that delivered household appliances from Europe. Later the company decided to expand the range of goods and simplify the process of shopping by creating a public internet-resource for purchasing different goods and services.

XB Software team developed an internet-service for purchasing and delivering goods from Western Europe to the CIS countries. Now people from Eastern Europe can buy goods and services of European quality at a reasonable price. The specialists from XB Software undertook the creation of a site from scratch and developed a service to order and deliver goods. Users can use a personal account to order products.

The website includes a list of available online shops with an integrated form to filter goods by category. It also provides links to the shops that sell-off goods. The embedded calculator allows you to calculate the cost of a parcel for the selected region.

To handle payments, they integrated PayPal, Edinaya Kassa, and UNIStream into the site. Joomla was chosen as a content management system (CMS). That allowed developers to embed all the required modules in the shortest possible time and create an easy-to-use catalog of shops.

While creating the service, the developers used PHP and JavaScript programming languages, Yii framework and MySQL database.
