Certified WordPress Expert Developer since May 2015

Introduction

Hi there! My name is Marcel and I’ve been developing for WordPress for over 10 years now, web development for more than 20 and native mobile development for 5. While currently based in the beautiful city of Porto, Portugal, I’ve accumulated a large experience in WooCommerce and e-commerce related websites in general, by developing custom plugins, adjusting themes, implementing full end to end online stores and building web-based and native mobile apps. I’m also very familiar with reporting, inventory management, mailing lists, high-performant e-commerce websites, importing and exporting data from and to APIs, and general e-commerce consultancy.

I’m fluent in English, German, Portuguese, and Spanish, I am always available through Skype and have a true commitment to every project I get into.

My goal is to work on solid, well-thought projects, and build long-term relationships. I want my clients to feel supported and confident about their projects and the technology behind it.

Expertise

These are some of the customizations I’ve made while working with WordPress and WooCommerce:

  • All sorts of Gravity Forms and Formidable customizations;

  • External APIs integrations;
  • Implementation of cryptocurrencies as payment methods;
  • Bulk import/export data to/from WordPress and WooCommerce
  • WooCommerce Bookings integrations and customizations
  • ERP integrations
  • Site optimizations and bug fixes

From the beginning on, when Marcel helped defining what exactly made the most sense to be done, working with him was absolutely great. He quickly found affordable solutions for all of my WooCommerce issues, responded very timely, and came up with smart ideas while he was implementing that made the result better than expected. I can wholeheartedly recommend him. Thanks, Marcel!

Marcel was extremely professional and knowledgeable. HIs communication around scoping of tasks and attention to detail was fantastic and as a UX designer I am pretty picky. Highly recommended. I would work with him again in a heartbeat

Marcel did a great job, there were a couple parties involved and things didn't always move along as quickly as they should. Marcel was patient and delivered the product as promised.

Marcel is an excellent communicator. Our project was not simple as the client did not want to give out third party access. This required Marcel to coordinate with other developers. All this happen in a timely and professional way.
