Avenue B is a makeup and cosmetics retailer and concierge beauty service that’s reshaping the idea of the clinical, fluorescent-lit makeup section, and fostering a community around highly curated shopping and discovery.
Design & Develop a new Shopify Plus storefront on a twelve-week timeline, with custom PDP and PLP designs, a live-chat concierge, an interactive Beauty Match quiz, and ERP integrations for Salsify and Sellercloud fulfillment channels.
What We Did
We designed and developed a custom Shopify Plus storefront, packed with features like custom PDP and PLP designs, custom badges and product attributes, and two complex ERP integrations, all within a tight 12-week timeline.
Launching a new brand’s first website on a 12-week timeline was a unique challenge. Fortunately, the BlueSwitch Web Team is all about unique challenges, so this project gave everyone who worked on it a chance to shine.
- A very short 12-week timeline
- Give the client’s non-developer teams the ability to add custom dimensions and badges to products, without touching code
- Complex ERP integrations on two very different platforms (Salsify and Sellercloud)
- Create massive product catalog within timeline, without migration data to fallback on
- Create a scalable, flexible backend systems architecture
Start with a great foundation
Great websites require a great foundation, so at the onset of the project we provided systems architecture consultation to help Avenue B refine their sales and fulfillment pipeline. To tap into this new architecture, we developed ERP integrations for Sellercloud and Salsify fulfillment channels. The ERP integrations provide a stable, secure connection between frontend messaging, Shopify’s ecommerce engine, the supply chain infrastructure, and Avenue B leadership. Or as we like to call it, a web of awesomeness.
Apply custom shapes and colors
In order to give Avenue B’s internal team as much flexibility and control as possible, we used custom PDP and PLP designs that leverage Shopify’s Metaobjects. The use of Metaobjects allows non-technical users to update and customize at a product-level, to add additional color swatches, product highlights, custom PLP badges, and promotional messaging, all without touching code.
Make a lasting first impression
Avenue B is a brand-new brand, and this Shopify Plus storefront was to be their very first website. In eCommerce, first impressions are everything, so our goal was to build a high-performance storefront that would make Avenue B stand out from the crowd, with scalable backend functionality that would help their business grow and thrive. The result is an innovative, beautiful, and functional beauty marketplace that’s sure to help Avenue B earn the reputation they deserve.
