With over 900 listed businesses and tens of thousands of regular returning users, it was important to keep the platform structured and efficient. The navigation had to be intuitive so that it was easy for visitors to buy vouchers and thereby support their favourite threatened places.
Due to the urgency of the situation, we started with a simple architecture that had to be fundamentally redesigned several times within a few weeks to meet the growing challenges. For example, new companies were initially registered on the platform by volunteers. After the effort for this became too much over time, we developed a solution in cooperation with the company firstvoucher with which companies could register themselves independently on the platform.
Also the simple purchase of the voucher via Paypal.Me eventually gave way to a professional shop system with several payment methods, shipping options of printed vouchers as gift cards as well as many other technical gadgets.
