Our solution

The whole web development process was divided into 3 main stages:

Stage 1. Development of an e-store.

The web application itself is based on a popular library for e-commerce applications – SpreeCommerce. The application has all typical e-commerce functions available both on back and front offices.
As we used Spree, most of these functions were available out-of-box, and their development didn’t take much time and we were able to focus on the development of the service unique functionality (UX, custom interface, etc).

Stage 2. Integration of the e-store with wechat communication service.

WeChat allows integrating all the functionality of online stores into the service. We used WeChat API to Join the e-commerce functions with the service’s ones.
In addition, the platform and its interface are adapted to the Asian market and to the peculiarities of web solutions in Asia.

Stage 3. Quality assurance.

Our QA specialist tested all the functionality and its compatibility with other systems.


The Client received a complex ecommerce application with rich functionality and deep integration with the WeChat communication service. The ecommerce platform has a unique functionality such as custom display of goods in a form of bookshelves.

The Client is planning to launch the solution to the market in near future.
