Soulfx redeveloped the e-commerce platform in WooCommerce and integrated it into third-party payment gateway and shipping APIs. The site uses a number of plugins including predictive search, product photo galleries and customer reviews.

Site e-commerce application is hosted on the Amazon WS cloud with back-ups to Amazon S3 cloud storage.

Finally, the site uses a new responsive design to address the massive increase in mobile traffic.


The integration into third-party payment gateway and shipping APIs dramatically improved order turn-around times, reduced management time and increased customer satisfaction levels. In addition, the application includes a customer account and shipping notification system that reduces follow-up calls to the customer service department.

The new responsive design showcases products beautifully on large-screen monitors and across mobile and tablet devices. Customers easily order Rhéo Thompson products on any device, anywhere, anytime.
