Build Process - Back-end [ 3 ]

After the main site build process, the following items must be set up by the PWS department (if these items were requested by the customer during the intake process, otherwise they can be ignored) to consider the site "complete" and ready to launch.

SEV Setup Process and Ops/Fulfillment Callouts

GEM Integration & Fulfillment

PWS will create the first email marketing campaign upon site completion. This will not be done by builders, it will be done by the fulfillment team after the site has been completed, revisions have been done and the design is approved by the customer to go live.

For reference, the process is outlined below:

  • 1. Customer’s site has been built and revisions completed
  • 2. QA Team completes final quality review
  • 3. QA Team sets up “Grand Opening Email” - Uploads subscriber list. **
  • 4. QA Team completes closing of project
  • 5. Publish email sent!

3 * This is a new process for fulfillment. The setup process will add an additional 2 minutes to current process.

PayPal

It used to be a requirement to disable PayPal on every build, but it is no longer a requirement. Now that we have delegate access, PayPal can't be disabled. It doesn't need to be disabled because PayPal is now attaching to the customer's email address automatically. However, it is always good to glance over it and make sure it connected to the customer's email properly rather than anyone else's.

** Note: If the customer's logo isn't suitable for a favicon or if its purely text, and if you're feeling generous, you can choose to give them a favicon from iconsdb.com which is a free-for-commercial-use icon site. Choose an icon relevant to the customer's business and use the accent color they selected for their theme perhaps. The site allows you to put in a custom hex code and download .png files in various sizes for any icons they provide.

Product Reviews (Yotpo)

You can connect your GoCentral Online Store and Yotpo to enable your customers to leave product ratings and reviews. After customers buy a product, you can email them to ask for a product review and moderate those reviews.
