Melbourne Christmas Trees

Industry: Ecommerce
Solution: Magento Module Development & Customization

The Project

The client for the project Melbourne Christmas Trees based in Melbourne, Australia wanted a website dealing with the sale of traditionally cut real Christmas trees just before Christmas season. The website was built using the Magento Ecommerce Shopping Cart Software where website users can order the Christmas tree online and have them delivered to their door steps.

The Challenge

The key challenge of the project was the customization of the existing Magento online store. The project required us to execute major customization in checkout & shipping/delivery modules.

  • First customization was to allow the admin to add/edit/delete zip code, area/locality for the delivery of the product.
  • Second customization was to allow the admin to allow front end users to select specific dates for ordering based on their location zip code and area/locality.


  • Analyze client’s business requirements.
  • Customize checkout and shipping module
  • Recommended Magento Module Development & Customization


  • Developed a custom module and integrated in the Magento backend where the admin can add
    • Zip code
    • Area/locality
    • Select which days of week will the delivery be possible.
  • Made changes in the website frontend checkout page once custom module development & integration was achieved.
  • Calendar display integrated (display with only the date & days when the delivery is possible) for selecting the product delivery day, once the user enters the zip code or area. The user can select any one of those.
