Mags Direct, New Online Magazine Shop


I’ve been lucky enough to combine my WordPress experience with my day job for the first time, creating a brand new ecommerce website to sell the UK’s top magazines.  The concept is to sell single copies of magazines at their coverprice (same as shop price), but posted 1st class to the customers door, for FREE!   No having to buy a long subscription, just get the issue you want, when you want it (we’ll hold back issue stock as well as the current issue, and you can also pre-order magazines!).

It’s built on a WordPress backbone, with strengthened security and a custom theme.  I’ve even created a lot of the graphics!

So if you like a good read, check out, cheers!
