Custom Theme & 3rd-party Integrations for Retail Store

Project Goal

The client wanted us to help with the migration of his store to the Magento 2 platform.

In addition to the migration of the store to an entirely new platform, the challenge was also there to ensure the brand guidelines for layouts and plugins. The client wanted his website to look exactly like the previous version. We need to configure both paid and free extensions to match the existing layout while working to fix the bugs encountered by our team.


After completing the process we came up with the following solutions for the client:

✔️ Redesigning the template to match the user experience

The earlier version of the website has an outstanding customer experience, and the client does not want any changes. Our team recreated the entire theme and copied the elements from the original store to give a similar customer experience on the website after migration to Magento 2 platform. The sole purpose of undertaking this task was to make sure that the client’s store does not lose its valuable customers.

✔️ Identifying and customizing up to 15 different extensions

The store of the client was using multiple extensions. As Magento 1 extensions won’t work with Magento 2 stores, we had to identify the extensions to provide an effective replacement. However, the problem was that we were unable to find the corresponding variants for every extension.

Apart from customizing the extensions that we found, our team also developed the working models of the unavailable extensions. We were able to save the below features of the website by undertaking the development of extensions:

  • Stock Management
  • Email Management
  • Product Reviews
  • Shipping management

✔️ Customizing the cart and shipping classes to match the M1 version

️There were significant differences between the cart and shipping classes on the M2 version. Our client wanted these classes to be the same as the M1 version, so our team customized these fields to match the M1 version of the website.

✔️ Enhancing the store experience for customers

️To ensure easy navigation on the website, we added categories to all the pages so that users can switch between them with ease. We also customized the product pages with preview options, discount offers, and dynamic reviews.

We also added a custom popup display for quick insights about the product and an “Add to Cart” button to add products in the shopping cart without even visiting the product page.

✔️ Adding custom module for reviews and feedback

️Though there was already a product review section client wanted us to develop a module that can display the reviews of the website on the home page. We created a custom module displaying the website reviews on the left sidebar of the website’s home page.

Final Words

The client was happy to see how our experienced developers brought his store back on track. We applied our expertise to ensure that there is no loss of data during the migration process.
