Shipster Setup Step by Step

This is the DYI process when you purchase the Light Media plugin to integrate with Shipster. Whether you are using WordPress or Magento the process is the same. The only difference is the installation into your respective ecommerce platform.

Please note: some level of technical skills is required in order to perform the installation. In addition, every website is different and the Shipster plugin may conflict with a customisation or pre-existing plugin. We recommend installing and testing the plugin on a test environment first. Please note that the mishandling of the code can damage your website. We recommend this installation to be done by a professional web developer.

You should get the same results as to when you performed the test. If that is the case, installation is successful and you are live and running with Shipster.

I am very grateful to Cristiano and his team at light media. As a medical practitioner starting a new practice I did not know anything about branding, logos, website and SEO. I was referred to Cristiano by a common friend and was initially somewhat apprehensive thinking that the South Yarra location would mean premium prices. He was definitely reasonably priced but every aspect of the service was top notch. The whole process was transparent from the outset and I knew what I was getting. Nothing was a hassle and they worked around my busy schedule. They made sure that the website project went according to the timeline. At times they held me accountable for my part which was necessary. They have a great team and can provide a one stop shop. I did my logo, stationary, ongoing paper promotional material, website, website hosting and recently SEO. I have referred multiple colleagues to him and have gratitude for making one aspect of my practice so seamless.

The Wyndham History website was designed and implemented by Light Media, on the library CMS called Omeka. The design has met – and exceeded - our brief and expectation. We have been continuously using Light Media for ongoing development. The team is friendly, ready to assist and punctual on deadlines. We have been thrilled with the level of design and development expertise that Light Media have demonstrated on a key web project for our organisation. We gave Light Media the brief to fully develop (including look-and-feel, functional changes and bug fixing) a local history website built on the Omeka Content Management System. The team at Light Media clearly relished the prospect of working with a new platform and showed a great understanding of our needs and those of our end users. They nailed the design of the website theme in the first round of wireframes, and continually impressed us with their aesthetic decisions and UX suggestions during the look-and-feel development. We were also very pleased with their willingness and skill in bug fixing several modules of the CMS, thereby allowing us to deliver an excellent resource to the community on our own timeline. We couldn’t be happier with the professionalism, support and customer centred approach of the Light Media team – thanks again! -Tom Edwards. Coordinator, Library Systems Technology

I had Light Media do a 3D rendering image of a bathroom scene showcasing an upcoming product of ours. The result was beyond my expectations, seriously! I had an initial image/direction in mind and they used the idea and made it far better than I could of come up with. The ease of process that Jeff and the team provided was exactly what I needed as this was the first time I have had 3D rendering done. I have had endless comments on how good the render looks, both in the architecture and how real it is. My favourite of which was "this looks like it's come straight out of Vogue Living" I'm about to have a number more 3D rendered bathroom scenes by Light Media made for our website and new marketing material.
