Web based Curtain Ordering Software
These are websites that cannot be easily built into the “off the shelf” software as they are complicated and each needs its own special requirements.
How can we help?
We have built several fabrics and curtain websites and so now know the ins and outs of the curtain making process (we could probably set up our very own Datadial curtain making business!) and how this gets translated online to enable a seamless (no pun intended) ordering process.
Just like those made to measure drapes, we recognise that no two sites are the same and so, our software is built bespoke to your making up model and cost calculations. We can integrate with your offline order management systems or we can build and embed this online keeping everything in the one place.
Where do we do it?
All curtain ordering software work is carried out in-house at our Hammersmith office in West London, W6. We do not outsource our work. We are a team of about 15, geared towards building our clients’ businesses and brands online.

Vanessa Arbuthnott – Made to Measure Curtain and Upholstery Ordering
Bespoke Curtain Ordering Software
This is an example of a website for which off the shelf shopping software would not be able to cope.
If you have ever ordered a pair or curtains you will know how complicated it can be. You need to know about pattern repeats, drops, width measurements, pelmet pleats, flop overs, piping, poles, tiebacks, voiles, cushions and how to calculate it all in an instant for the online user.
As this was a redevelopment of an existing site the client had a sophisticated set of requirements not just for curtain calculations but also delivery management and accommodation of standard e-commerce products.
So we developed a bespoke e-commerce website.
The site accommodates:
- Made to Measure Curtains, Roman and Swedish Blinds, Quilts, Cushions, Upholstered Chairs, Sofas, Wallpapers and standart products.
- There are lots of additional options where relevant such as options for second lining fabrics, border fabrics piping, buttons etc.
- Includes multiple payment options including phone, cheque, PayPal, credit card.
- Sophisticated delivery management allows for split deliveries for orders containing mixed product types such as a sofa and a free sample. Dynamic Postcode calculator offers cheapest postage options.
- Includes back end call centre order entry and CRM. All fully updateable via bespoke CMS
Built from the ground up with SEO in mind, this is the only fully SEO friendly curtain website in the world as far as we know!
Loom and Last – Curtain ordering software – Made to Measure Curtains
Loom and Last
Curtain ordering software. We really had to pull ourselves together for this one!
Natural Curtain Company approached Datadial when they realised their existing site was failing and that the platform that it was built on could not sustain the complexity of their product offering, nor was it extensible enough to accommodate new products.
Instead of shoe-horning Natural Curtain’s business model into pre-existing e-commerce software as had happened on their previous site we instead built the site to their exacting requirements from the ground up.
The result is a complex and sophisticated ordering system that has minimised the amount of in house administration of online orders and virtually eliminated user errors on the site as there is now so much validation before ordering that users cannot order the wrong thing.
The site is integrated with Datadial’s email marketing software as well as Wufoo and online survey tool as well as their own bespoke order management system.
The site has also been supported by an online marketing campaign to keep the site listed for any curtain related queries. A recent conversion rate optimisation exercise where we A/B tested homepage layouts had the effect of increasing revenue by 30%.
It is clear that our customers like the new website. I love it. So a big thank you from me and all at the ever-growing Natural Curtain Company.David Adeane, Natural Curtain Company
