Strumpf BoutiqueSwiss online store with women’s clothes and accessories
Get to know more about the Magento 1 to Magento 2 migration process.
Strumpf Boutique requested us to lead the migration process of their previous Magento 1-based e-commerce to the latest Magento 2 version. Issues with easy and transparent Magento 1 back-end administration were among the main reasons the brand has decided on the migration process. Moreover, Magento 1 usage, which is no longer officially supported by Adobe, puts the online store in real danger of potential security breaches. For instance, the online shop has not received any substantial security patches since the end of Magento 1 support.
Our team was responsible for the Magento migration to the latest Magento 2 version according to the arrangements. We transferred all the essential data from the previous platform during the migration process, among others, customer data, order details, or products and categories content. Moreover, we migrated the configuration data, such as the tax information or languages versions configuration.
We coded several customized modules and prepared the refreshed graphic design for a new Strumpf’s shop. Additionally, we implemented a few enhancements that boosted the functionality of the online store. You can find more information about them in „Solution in details.”
Solution in details
1. Integration with PostFinance
Strumpf Boutique leads sales primarily in Switzerland. Thus, we integrated the online store with one of the most popular payment systems in this country – PostFinance. As a result, users can quickly finalize the transactions using the most convenient payment method.
2. Integration with Intrum API
Integration with Intrum allows checking if the user, who wants to finalize the transaction, is in a debtors’ ledger. Based on the given personal data, the tool verifies the user. It sets him an appropriate status. Depending on the verification outcome, the payment methods available for this user display, e.g., deferred payment. Module’s modification to suit the One Step Checkout option was the main challenge for our development team.
3. One Step Checkout
To maximally shorten and ease the purchase process, we implemented the One Step Checkout. All the steps are visible within one page. As a result, the user can see the entire process and knows whether he filled in all the obligatory data or not.
4. The invoice system
We implemented the invoices system, which generates different invoices depending on the chosen payment method. Then, the program automatically sends it to the customer.
