Skins Cosmetics

Skins Cosmetics is a luxury Dutch cosmetics retailer founded in Amsterdam in 2000.

The vision of Skins Cosmetics is to showcase a curated range of niche handcrafted fragrance, make-up and skincare products to the up-market consumer.

When we were approached to develop a new website for Skins South Africa, we were excited. However, our excitement gave way to some nervousness, when we realised that just how stylish our new customer wanted the site to be.

Skins Cosmetics is a Dutch retailer, founded in 2000. It went on to become an original luxury emporium for fragrances and skin care products painstakingly curated from niche brands, sourced all over the world.

International Website Pandora

International Jewelry Store

A while back, we developed PANDORA’s South African online store (for another agency). Of course, we chose Magento the Worlds Number 1 eCommerce platform.

Our brief was to reflect the and showcase the exquisite design of Pandora's jewellery. Our design also had to cater for publishing short half-life content such as 24-hour specials and pop-up sales. One of these was backed by a bulk email announcement and run over a public holiday for a 'quick test'. Amazingly sales topped all time daily sales high for the month.

To complicate matters, live stock levels drawn from a national warehouse serving scores of stores, needed to reflect online in near-real time. The system we implemented allowed for 5 minute updates, which worked perfectly.

Online Supplements and Wellness Store

When Holistix decided to turn to ecommerce for a new revenue stream, they approached Syncrony Digital to develop and design it. Over the past 7 or 8 years, we have guided Holistix in the competitive waters surging around online vitamin and Supplement sales.

, where pharmacy and supermarket chains are producing their own branded lines and new competitors enter the market every month, established Vitamin manufacturers and wholesalers whose largest percentage of revenue was from wholesaling, have had to find other revenue channels to survive.

 

LAPA

LAPA Publishers

LAPA Publishers a South African publisher of Afrikaans and English books sells its books online on a Magento 2 Community platform. The system has multiple, complex integration points, since it sells printed as well as electronic books.

Printed books need delivery by courier and are weight and dimension sensitive. This required deep integration into LAPA's courier partner in order to calculate rates based on destination, package weight and size.

Adding electronic book delivery into the mix meant that the shopping cart needed to be aware that it could hold a mixture of physical and electronic items. Electronic books were provisioned by API into LAPA's digital book supplier, providing individualized codes for each title purchased LAPA's customers.

Electronic purchases where then persisted to each users bookshelf, housed as part of the Magento user profile.
