BUS 2504 Final Group Project (Fall 2022)

Sinful Desserts Website

You are required to work in groups, and develop an e-commerce website for our client using Shopify.

Your Task

You will be working with your team on developing a Shopify website for your client, based on the four phases discussed in class (refer to the slides for details)

  1. Discovery
  2. Design
  3. Development & Testing
  4. Deployment & Training


  • Include a disclaimer in the footer “This website is a school project
  • Do not include Humber’s contact info, map, phone, or email

Project Phases & Deliverables

Phase 1: Discovery (5%)


  • Max 2 pages PDF, refer to slide 26
  • The proposal needs to be completed after meeting your client
  • Include the list of questions you had prepared for your Discovery Call
  • Submission: Through BB

Phase 2: Design & Development (15%)


  • Include 3-5 suggested free themes that are aligned with your client’s goals for the website, and explain how each theme meets the client’s requirements in terms of both style and functionality
  • You must copy and paste the full URL instead of inserting it as a hyperlink as BB Ultra doesn’t allow me to access hyperlinks through PDFs, and I will copy and paste the link in a browser
  • Submission: Through BB (max 2 pages PDF)

Account Details

  • Create a free Gmail account for your client using a generic business name (for example HumberWebsiteProject2022, and a generic password (for example HumberProject@2022)
  • Create a free Shopify account using the Gmail above
  • Submit the usernames and passwords for both Gmail and Shopify in this document

Group Reflection

  • This is your “project post-mortem” or “lessons learned”
  • One page with two sections: what went right & what went wrong
  • Use point form and include pictures of the process when possible (for example brainstorming meetings)


Walk your client through:

  • Website: browse through the website and highlight any important navigation items you’d like them to see
  • Dashboard: show them where to find the products, collections, blog, SEO
  • You can refer to the website as you walk through the dashboard so they understand the connection (for example how the choice of collection in the dashboard can affect navigation on the website)
  • View Recording a presentation for an external client

Submission through Blackboard:

  • Submission textbox:
    • Link to your final free Shopify website
    • Link to your presentation
  • Three Attachments (PDF):
    1. Themes PDF
    2. Account Details PDF
