Our longtime Magento 1 client wanted to add a custom label designer feature for their wholesale bottle products. We reviewed the requirements and suggested that upgrading to Magento 2 first was the best course of action! They agree that it was the right time to upgrade from Magento 1 to Magento 2 and off we went. We first migrated the products and content to Magento 2. We then added and upgraded only those extensions that were still in use which cleaned things up a lot. We added a fresh new Magento 2 design, updates their colors and logo and were ready to launch and start phase 2.
In phase 2 we developed a custom API to connect from the Magento 2 products and checkout, to a third party label printing service. Using our API, customers could now purchase wholesale bottles and design and order custom labels all at checkout.
