Completed: May 2012


  • Easy Editing Using WordPress CMS
  • Online store powered by Jigoshop and PayPal

All products, content and images on the site are easily and securely edited by administrators through a web browser, and no additional software.

Moonbean Coffee sells its gourmet coffee thanks to the Jigoshow e-commerce plugin, which Kobayashi Online installed to provide simple and flexible product management. Jigoshop makes adding products nearly as easy as posting a WordPress blog entry. The site uses the powerful PayPal platform to securely process credit card and PayPal payments.

Online shoppers can get an instant shipping estimate for the products in their shopping cart. This is thanks to an integrated Canada Post plugin, which uses the product dimensions, weight, and destination to determine the cost of shipping.

Kobayashi Online coded the site to be search friendly. Site administrators can create new pages, which will be quickly spotted and indexed by search engines such as Google and Bing.
