Transition from a WooCommerce E-shop to a solution from bart.sk
What is Reparex?
AVOS Trade International LTD, which is the operator of the Reparexshop E-shop, approached us with the need to remodel their E-shop, which was built on the open-source Wordpress solution and was no longer suitable for their needs.
Collaborating with an online marketing agency and professional photographer
Designing tailored designs based on data from the analytical tools
Customized E-shop programming
Migrating users and other data from the original shop
Launching the first language mutations
Where do we go from here?
Running an E-shop is just the beginning. As part of our regular E-shop collaboration, we gradually innovate, add new functionality and launch other language mutations.
The whole communication takes place directly between the E-shop manager, the marketing agency and the programmer assigned to the project. The main communication channel is the online Gitlab tool, where the entire communication history, list of requests and priorities for the current programming sprint are recorded.
The changes that the programmer prepares and tests are then automatically deployed via Git from the test version of the site to the production version that is seen by actual visitors to the site.
What have we already worked on in terms of regular collaboration?
Linking the E-shop and superfaktura.sk via API for automatic invoice generation
Implementation of the 24pay payment gateway for the Slovak mutation
“Amazon” button with the option to purchase the product on Amazon
We are gradually expanding the scope of the E-shop to other markets
…and about 100 more requests and innovations
When should you consider switching from WooCommerce to an E-shop?
If the E-shop vendor fails to meet the requirements of the E-shop owner
If you need new functionality for your customers, but don’t have these modules available to you
If the E-shop speed is slow due to complicated optimization
If your open source template does not suit you anymore and you would like to tailor your design
If you can no longer grow with your E-shop. This means managing other markets, increasing conversions, automating administrative processes, and so on
If the E-shop's security is compromised
If you need to fully link your E-shop to your economic software
Open source is a suitable solution for your E-shop if you have regular secure updates and a handy programmer who has a good overview of the source code of the system and can work with innovations within the regular E-shop.
