Problem

The problem

Shopify is the unquestionable number one e‑commerce platform, with a breathtaking 800k brands onboard and over $100 billion of sales. However, as a ready‑to‑use tool, it may not meet all of your expectations. Although it offers many features and integrations, there is a blank spot when it comes to apps dedicated to external management, tracking or shipping systems, especially on the European market.

Goal

The goal

The project’s objective was a smooth integration between clients’ Shopify e‑stores and the existing external systems that were responsible for specific e‑commerce sections, such as warehouse management systems, loyalty systems, gift cards, product data management systems, etc.

Challenge

The challenge

Although Shopify made it easier for many businesses to start with online sales, it comes with some limitations for stores in Europe, lacking important features such as solutions for simplifying order management. In this case, when you need something out‑of‑the‑box, like a shipping list generated in real‑time - you need a dedicated application for that.

Naturaily’s job was to design and create the integrations for our e‑commerce partners, double-check that all of the built solutions are 100% scalable and secure, ensure that the stores work well will integrations and, overall, make them ready to handle the growing number of orders with no difficulties.
