The site and its processes

Fresh Nation enables you to order fresh produce from Farmers Markets from pre-defined delivery areas around the US and have them delivered to you direct to your home.

Add-ons and EE special sauce

The front-end of the site is powered extensively using Exp-resso Store. There are numerous custom extensions and modules which extend the Store native functionality to allow products to be segmented for delivery zone, delivery day (products vary by day) and associated vendors. We use Low Search to traverse all of the multiple relationships within the system including markets, vendors and products some of which are one-to-one and some of which are many-to-many. The site has a healthy splash of Stash to aid in the caching and data storage through the site and a number of custom extensions to extend stash functionality where required.

The payment gateway system uses Braintree Processing and a custom module was developed against this to offer deferred payment processing, card vault storage (save cards) and a large custom module was written to facilitate subscriptions – YES, WE HAVE SUBSCRIPTIONS IN STORE!! (Sadly, no this is not and will never be a commercial product since it’s highly customized for this project).

The backend of the system has some kick-ass post-order-processing modules including geo-location of delivery addresses, order collation and excel rendering, picking lists and vendor order notes as well.
