Provocations that we handled carefully were about Sales persons, Referral system and commission calculations from Has Offer API we integrated also there was a big challenge in implementing referral system in Wando International Shop.




Project Reflection

The successful accomplishment of this web application demonstrates that one of the greatest techniques for a foundation to substantially increase the impact of its fund raiser is to engage members as an advocates and charities. The development of CauseBlast website was a challenging yet a very delightful experience. By developing this website, we gained the worthy experience of working with Braintree functionality which enables us to enhance our capabilities and skills in web-portal, supplier and payment management, customer solutions etc. Our experience is also added with collaborative need management and customer satisfaction at both ends. Our client is so happy with our work and also our company is happy to work on this project.
