Vikifo - Magento store for women wear brand

Our client is Ukrainian women wear brand. The goal of this project was to develop online-shop that will have two different store views with own currency and prices for each store view.


We've chosen Magento 2 as platform for this web-store because one of main requirements to site was full support of mobile devices. Magento 2 has good default responsive theme Luma that can be used as base for custom responsive theme development. In case of Vikifo project we decided to use ready-made professional theme from ThemeForest - Porto. Porto theme gives a wide range of widgets like mega-menu, image galleries and page layouts. Layouts were similar to mockups of Vikifo site so we’ve chosen Porto as base theme for our project that allowed us to save time and client’s budget.

In addition it is worth noting that we’ve compared cons and pros of using Magento 1.9 and decided to take a risk and start development on Magento 2 platform. Reasons for this step were following:

  • support of PHP7 that gives better performance;

  • better User Interface on Front-End and Back-End;

  • improved product’s widgets and features that fit well to needs of fashion online stores.

One of challenge that we had on this project was adding online payments processing to site. Magento provides many extensions for payment providers, but PayPal, Authorize are not acceptable for ukrainian merchants. For one of popular payment provider in Ukraine - LiqPay -  extension for Magento 1.9 was developed.  At summer of 2016 there was not Magento 2 version of LiqPay extension. We’ve created own extension for Magento 2 that integrates LiqPay as payment method for Magento store. The code of extension is available into our GitHub.

We had integration task in that project that required to synchronize data base of Magento store with accounting system - TorgSoft. This task was solved by custom extension.

Technologies used:

  • PHP (Magento Community Edition v.2.1)

  • Databases: MySQL

  • Frameworks: ZendFramework, Magento

In this project we’ve achieved goals we had. The Client got simple in use back-end of online-store. Customized Porto theme looks attractive and works awesome on different mobile devices - phones and tablets.
