About Diego Zanella - Aelia

Aelia are an ISV (independent software vendor) specialised in web development and consultancy, backed by over 22 years’ experience in the field. Aelia currently specialise in the development of solutions, plugins and themes for WordPress, WooCommerce and Easy Digital Downloads.

In 2013 Aelia launched our flagship product, the Currency Switcher for WooCommerce, which currently is the most flexible multi-currency solution for WooCommerce and has received enthusiastic reviews and feedback from all our customers. A couple of months later, we have been asked to develop the same solution for Easy Digital Downloads, so we ported our product to that platform, and, once again, it became the leading multi-currency product.

Message from Diego Zanella - Founder, Aelia

When I heard that I achieved the Business All-Star Accreditation, a smile appeared on my face. It was a smile of both excitement and surprise. Excitement for reaching such an important achievement. Surprise because I’ve been so focused on developing my business, that I didn’t realise how far I already went.

By following the process for the accreditation, I had the opportunity to look back at the steps that brought me here. I started Aelia, back in 2013, as little more than a pet project, to earn a bit extra with my IT skills. I put significant effort into it, as I always do in my job, as I believe in the idea of “doing it right, or not doing it at all”.

The result, six years later, is a business with thousands of customers and connections with some of the most important players in the eCommerce industry. The feedback received during the reference checks was a validation of the efforts spent over the past years. I would like to thank the Foundation for having given me such an opportunity, as well as all the clients and collaborators who have been supporting Aelia since its inception. This will be a strong incentive to keep offering top-class services, at the high standards expected from an All-Star business.
