Case Study: PHP and Javascript

Thrive Nutritional Wellness was founded by a holistic nutritional counselor as an organic, healthy, eco-friendly meal delivery service. We were tasked with creating a website for Thrive which included a blog and a way to order the service using simple e-commerce technologies. To do this, PHP and Javascript (some of it asynchronous) were utilized. For CMS, we used WordPress with the Watson theme, and added some customizations.

The ordering page for Thrive Nutritional Wellness required:

  • Form input for ordering different types of services, including a-la-carte items
  • Coupon code for discounts
  • Recurring billing if desired
  • Gathering other customer information (name, phone, address, allergies if any, etc)

Some new theme templates were created with a combination of PHP and Javascript to accept the form input and transfer the customer over to FirstData gateway for credit card processing. Once credit card data was securely collected, FirstData would send the user back to the Thrive website for a receipt. An email would then be sent to Thrive and the customer with details of the transaction. Error checking was also necessary for making sure the form was filled out correctly.
