Our UAE based client is a retail giant who was venturing to sell products of pop culture such as collectibles, soft toys, and miniatures. They already have retail stores that cover more than 17000 sq. ft. to attract multitudes of crowds of varying age and interest, bringing them to a whole new world that was previously not available in the region.
The client was supremely inspired by eCommerce giants like Amazon and so decided to develop a digital online platform with high-end collectibles, pop-culture merchandise, apparel and novelty items. Their store would cater to all the on-demand needs of their customers, delivering custom-made products of their favorite pop artists as per the demand. They wanted the delivery drivers to reach every door around the globe.
With the same idea, the client approached us and shared his ideology of upscaling local stores online and becoming more accessible to local people. Since we had expertise and experience of similar product solutions, our team seamlessly delivered all the requirements of the client without any technical glitches. Our Magento development team was adept and backed-up with industry knowledge to develop the best e-commerce store for both merchandisers and for customers.
The only challenge that our team faced was with shipping methods and payment gateway in Postaplus which demanded comprehensive research and time to be spent on finding a solution.
