BySea Coffee Gets Its Own Fresh Blend!
"Studio Republic have done an amazing job of creating the new BySea subscription website. We are thrilled with the result and have started taking orders immediately." - Adam Stacey - Commercial Director at Sailor's Society.
BySea is an ethical charitable coffee brand. They sell ethically produced coffee and 100% of the profits are donated to charity.
The idea of having a charitable coffee brand was started by our biggest client - Sailor's Society charity. The objective of BySea was to diversify the charity's income streams. The proposition was to sell ethical coffee from the countries that Sailor's Society currently have presence.
Not only are they ethical, they are also absolutely delicious. Having to drink at the studio everyday, we can vouch for the quality of the coffee! We highly recommend the Brazilian blend. It's strong enough to wake everyone up in the morning, but not too strong to give us the shakes by lunchtime.
"Coffee is the most popular drink worldwide with around two billion cups consumed everyday." - CoffeeFacts.
"In the UK, we drink approximately 55 million cups of coffee per day." - CoffeeFacts.
So what's a better way to donate your money for charity than to purchase coffee that tastes delicious, knowing that the money you're spending is for a good cause.
We're excited to be sharing that our work on BySea's latest site has launched. Our developers built the site from scratch using Wordpress as the Content Management System. We also have integrated WooCommerce as the e-commerce subscription system.
Initially, we built a simple e-commerce site, only allowing single purchases. However, we've learnt that a subscription platform for businesses to buy in bulk is potentially a better option. Therefore, this new commercial subscription BySea website has been developed to cater for this requirement.
If you know us, you probably also know that we believe in simplicity. Not in the process of building a website, but in the functionality and design of it.
The subscription site has been built to make it as simple, informative and straightforward as possible for users to purchase a suitable coffee blend. The subscriptions allow users to receive their favourite blend monthly. Plus, they can change their subscriptions at any time. Adding a subscription to a basket is one click from the home page. The site saves a customer's card details so repeat orders are only a couple of clicks from landing on the site to completion.
If this process is slightly complicated, users will give up. Time is money. So if we cause them to lose their time, we could even lose conversions. Get started with your BySea subscription today. Again, we highly recommend the Brazilian blend!
Oh, and you can also visit BySea coffee lounge in Southampton and their coffee Land Rover on the road!
