Magento 2 migration and multisite in progress.
Bad Idea T-Shirts was initially a challenge.
The client was running on an outdated e-commerce platform and wanted to migrate to Magento 2. Other developers had been trying to accomplish this feat for them and failed. The complexity was due to the large number of product options that needed to be created in Magento.
With over 2,000 t-shirt prints, available on more than 10 short styles, in up to 10 different colors – the total possible product variations numbered more than 1.5 million products/variations that needed to exist along with their images (which nobody wanted to manually create!)
Our first solution was was to install and set up custom options based on templates the client could assign to products. This allowed us to keep the product catalog to close to 2,000 products while still having 1.5 million SKUs available for ordering.
The second solution required us to develop custom software which could generate a physical image for every product variation and assign it to that option in Magento.
After these two solutions were developed, the rest was easy. A new logo, some new colors, moving the content over and we had a great new Magento 2 website to present to a thrilled client!
Stay tuned for the case study!
