Business Info

Pret-a-dress is an e-commerce website based in Hong-Kong. It stands unique in terms of services when compared to other e-commerce marketplaces. It aims to serve their customers with the best designer selections from top fashion brands. They cater designer items like dresses, jewelry and bags to the customers and provides an option to rent these items for a certain period of time. They provide the facility of dress fitting to their customers before renting the dress at their central showroom. They have easy return and exchange/cancel policies for their customer’s convenience. They provide unlimited discounts and special offers to their customers with VIP membership.

Business Problem

Pret-a-dress wanted a rental portal for their website where a user can buy and rent their clothes and other accessories. For buying the process is similar to any other e-commerce website but for renting a product for some days they had a special requirement where they wanted the payment gateway integrated for their website in such a way that if a user is renting their product, they hold some amount through the user's credit card for a couple of weeks and upon returning the product if it was found damaged then they can deduct the charges from that held amount. They even wanted a feature where before renting the product, users can schedule a fitting appointment at their nearby store in Hong Kong.

Project Features

This website unlike any other e-commerce website has features where customers can rent a product and schedule the fitting appointment at their central showroom. The payment gateway used in this project is Stripe. It provides the facility to authorise the customer’s credit card and capture the funds for 30 days. It also allows you to deduct the charges from that captured fund if any product when returned was found damaged. The rental period for any product was fixed and it was in the multiple of 4 which means any customer has to rent a product for a minimum period of 4 days. The rent of the product was dependent on the number of days it was rented. For scheduling a fitting appointment, there was a fixed amount charged before the checkout process. The customer has to set a date and time for dress fitting at the central showroom. They can select upto 6 dresses for each scheduled fitting appointment. The amount was refundable in case the user cancels the appointment and it was then converted into store credits which can be used by the customer for shopping next time.
