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

Marcel was able to do what no one else could. Delivery was beyond the 5 days estimated but the code worked as intended.

Marcel completed a project other developers have found challenging. His communication is 10/10, fast, responsive and patient most of all, answering all the questions I posed in a very organised manner, point by point. I rated this above all and of course, he is a professional at what he does. You get what you pay for, in this case, quality work. Will be working with Marcel again.

Marcel was very communicative and when he didn't quite understand what I was looking for, he made sure to ask pertinent questions until he understood completely. Very satisfied.
