Challenges

  • Create a new Retail only site, separate from their current Web Ninja B2B (wholesale) site with similar product information integration to their Jiwa accounting system.
  • The site to utilise Shopify's inherent B2C functionalities and theme-based look and feel.
  • No in-house Shopify knowledge

Solution

  • Use Web Ninja's internal Shopify site creation team to create a new site based on modifications to a standard Shopify theme.
  • Integrated to Jiwa to automate product information updates including name, description, sell price and collections (Shopify speak for Categories), weight, Shopify Tags for Product Specifications, Vendor, Products Groups assignment. (Web Ninja 'advanced' connector option).

Results

  • Cafe Lighting now has a brand new site servicing Retail customers only, whilst their wholesale customers continue to utilise the Web Ninja B2B platform.
  • Automation of product uploads to Shopify from Jiwa means Cafe Lighting staff can control what products appear on the retail site within Jiwa itself and of course, any retail order magically appears in Jiwa to be picked, packed and shipped!
